The Host

Status: Bookseller Picks


How does memory constitute identity?  What is it to be human?  Such immense questions underlie much of the gripping drama in Stephanie Meyer's latest novel, The Host.  Melanie, a protagonist of this psychological thriller, guides her other part using memories and her internal voice.  She helps her other part to adapt to new challenging emotions, pains, and relationships.  Trapped between two societies, they find themselves on a quest to find loved ones and learn who can be trusted.  If you did not find any interest to read Meyer's Twilight series, than perhaps you were waiting for her to exhibit her talent in this science fiction novel that is likely to be the premiere of a new exciting series.

I read this book immediately after I finished the Twilight series becuase I really wanted to read more of Meyer's work. A kind of, "If the shoe fits, buy it in every color" thing. . .


I loved Twilight, and I have to say that this book did not fall short of my high expectations.  However, this book was really nothing at all like Twilight.  It has a much more traditional Science Fiction feel, and it was definetly refreshing after non-stop vampires and werewolves. 


I really enjoyed this book.  Meyer has shown another side of her wonderful and imaginative writing with The Host.
