Stephenie Meyer's The Host Book Review & Giveaway - (3Winners)-(CLOSED)




Book Description:
Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.


When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.


Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

My Review:
I enjoyed The Host over all! It was interesting compared to the books I usually read. Invaders on earth taking over humans but not prepared for the emotions running inside their bodies. In our own way humans are powerful. This is an interesting story of love and struggle for human existence. If you like science fiction then you will like this. It is almost typical but with the one simple fact that love is a strong force to be reckoned with. The invader in Melanie's body finds this out after it is finds emotions it can't understand and memories about the love she feels for a man.

THE HOST debuted at #1 on The New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list and remained there for more than a year.

Stephenie Meyer is the author of the Twilight Saga!

You can purchase The Host here for $9.99.
