Well after reading the Twilight Saga books numerous times, I couldn't wait to get my eyes into The Host. After the trilling read of the Twilight books, I thought it must be as good, if not better as this was aimed at adults. I could not be more wrong. I was very disappointed, the storey is about a love triangle between an alient being (Wanderer) and the host body it is in (Melanie) and Melanies boyfriend. It takes you on a boaring journey into nowhere but does explain the relationship that Melanie and Wanderer develop. Not a bad story, but there is nothing in it to keep you gripped. I only finished it as I thought "it has to get better, keep going and you'll see". Well it didn't, I had great difficulty finishing it. It is a very long book, but it goes on too long...... The style of writing is nothing like twilight, so if you are looking for something similar, don't buy this book, it will be a waste of money, you will be disappointed.
