I was a bit hesitant before buying this book because of the Twilight Sage, which was, in my opinion, pretty poor. However this book could not be more different or more brilliant! A fantastic read with a very good plot line. Although some people have told me they found the first third of the book a bit boring I thought it was all really good.
Don't be put off by the author and ignore any preconceptions you might have.
I have read the Twilight Saga numerous times and have never been overwhelmed mostly due to the plot and Bella's character. However, The Host is different in some respects, there is less romance, which is good from my point of view and i feel that the plot is more grippng. I think this book is the best out of Meyer's lot
At first i thought it was going to be a disapointing book as it was very slow to get into, but after persevering for the first 4 chapters i couldn't put this book down. I loved it so much and i like how you can see the relationship between Melanie & Ian develope. Read if you liked: twilight, Vampire diaries or Need.
Absolutely amazing, well worth a read. Nothing at all like twilight. It's written so well and it'll have you laughing and crying so hard! As soon as you get into it it's impossible to put down! Not good when you should be doing homework! And for Petes sake, do not start reading this when you have exams coming up, because you will get NO work done!!
Amazing story and concept, thought it a bit strange to start but very interesting. You'll cry at the end, just because you've finished the book and there's no more Host to read :(
A MUST READ!
Such an interesting read! 'The Host' forces you to search for your moral standing on complex issues that you will never before have considered. It's also 100% unputdownable and has caused me a few late nights! It's heartbreaking, thought-provoking, sexy, and totally original. I highly recommend it!
