That’s definitely something that would pique my interest. The Host gets you into the head of two …more Really? The Host gets you into the head of two characters.
The character development and plot, as others have mentioned, do move slowly at first. I picked up and put down the book several times waiting for it to really “get going.
I found that these characters were NOT two-dimensional, and all supporting roles were specific, poignant, and unique from one another. I reread it a few times. What is this book like? A friend on mine recommended it and it sounds alright.
Is it as good as it sounds? But please no spoilers. Thorin This book is like nothing you have ever seen before. Even though aliens are the big problem, it is not just your regular alien-invasion sci-fy book.
It makes you question the problems in the world today and the emotions are so clear, you feel them right through the page. Plus; there is a four-way love triangle. It gets pretty complicated meyre two people are sharing one body. See all 54 questions about The Host…. Lists with This Book.

I originally had not planned on even reading this book because the Twilight series instills much rage within my soul, but I was in a dry spell for reading, so I decided to give it a try.
I have to say I really enjoyed it much more than the Twilight series. It sucked me in pretty quickly. It was very clearly a Stephenie Meyer book, though, which did lead to certain amounts of anger and eyes rolling I originally had not planned on even reading this book because the Twilight series instills much rage within my soul, but I was in a dry spell for reading, so I decided to give it a try.
It was very clearly a Stephenie Meyer book, though, which did lead to certain amounts of anger and eyes rolling nearly out of my head. It is super cheesy and super melodramatic. It makes my brain hurt. All the melting, melding, welding that I had just been through was shoved aside, into the smallest part of my body, the little corner that I took up physically.
Second, nobody but you owns your body, and if you find it romantic to think otherwise, that is unhealthy. What the hell is up with underage characters and older men?!
Why could the females not be slightly older? Jared can barely stand Wanderer for most of the book. He is cruel and violent towards her. Ian is the first to physically assault her. Of course, Ian ends up pretty near perfect with his perfect understanding and perfect kindness and perfect love.
But I will accept this because I think that his perfect personality fits with the gentle, loving, peaceful personality of Wanderer. In the tunnel on the way to Doc for the last time, when she asked Jared where everyone slept when it rained, my heart ached for her.
I thought that was a lovely way of noting how much she still really wanted to find out about this world and how much she was going to miss and that life was going to go on without her. It is a story about humanity with romance thrown in. I like looking at humanity through alien eyes. I like learning what it means to be human with Wanderer.

I like the meter between Mel and Wanderer. I like that Wanderer picked up sarcasm from Mel. I love how absolutely confused she initially is by humans. She views humans as violent, hateful creatures. She is confused when they feed and protect her. This completely goes against her view of humanity. I like how we perceive the humans through her eyes, how we get an idea of their motives from her which she is normally wrong about, and then we slowly see the change.
This is seen especially with Doc. I enjoyed seeing how Wanderer reacted to humans and how her perception of them changed. She goes from being terrified of humans to constantly surprised and confused by how good they end up being to loving them and embracing her own humanity. But throughout it she is ashamed of betraying her kind and feels like a traitor. What makes us human? What parts of us do people fall in love with? Are we more physical, spiritual, emotional?
And then we get to see Wanderer in two different bodies which change her a bit. We have weak v. After she desfargar put in a new body, she still loves Jared. Melanie stsphenie seems overly familiar with Ian before remembering who she is. Jared stares searchingly and confusedly at Wanderer. What makes someone who they are? What part of a person do others connect with? I love how people act and react in descargae book.
I thought it was hilarious when Wes? That’s just funny to me. If you can’t use humor to cope with the apocalypse, you’ll never make it. However, they only covered the human bodies. They still see the souls as alien and other which negates understanding nuesped compassion.
I stephenke what happens in the following bit: Of course that is how they would react when she is the one who knows how to bring the humans back! What makes one belong? Wanderer does not think she belongs in the cave because she is not human. Many of the humans agree. But she becomes part of the community, and her friends, who have gotten ddscargar know her and thus care about her, believe she hursped. Lacey is instantly accepted by many of the humans because she is human or becomes human again.
But she has a hateful personality, and most of the main characters do not like her.
