I mentioned last week that I had started the book, The Host, by Stephenie Meyer. The same woman who wrote the Twilight Series.
The Storyline: Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy that takes over the minds of humans hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Wanderer, the invading “soul” who occupies Melanie’s body, finds its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. As Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who has avoided invasion and lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she’s never met. Soon Wanderer and Melanie – reluctant allies – set off to search for the man they both love. Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human.
My thoughts: This book was fabulous! I found myself going through all the emotions: anger, love, jealousy and sadness with the characters. I was completely involved in this story and it really is one of the better love stories that I have read in a long time. I was torn at times and conflicted with how I felt or how I could imagine I would feel in the same situation. My only complaint was that it had to end. It was worth the read. I am not usually a sci-fi girl but this book doesn’t feel like sci-fi! I promise…don’t let the idea of aliens jade your thoughts. How many of you would have thought you would have been a werewolf and vampire lover? See?
Bottom Line: READ THIS BOOK!
