The Host

Promotion Picture
Penned By: Stephenie Meyer

Stephenie Meyer says that this is "sci-fi for people who don't like sci-fi." I like sci-fi and I love, loved this book (it was better than the Twilight series!) This character driven tale is an adult novel, not young adult. It's not violent or overly sexual but the characters are adults with adult lives and adult issues. With that said it had many of the twists and plot turns that so many have come to love in young adult literature. Melanie and Wanda battle for their lives, their loves, and their people. Who are these two women and who has it the right of it? This is a tale of aliens and a common tale of old told in a whole new way.

Quote: "My house, my rules."

Genus: Tech Minded
Era: Everyone

Difficulty: 3

Determination: Casual read

Series: No, though the end is definitely left open and there has been some contemplation out there about a sequel, Stephenie Meyer has never made any indication that she intends to write another.

Film: Though it has been slated to go to the big screen since September, 2009 nothing has been nailed down as of yet.

Your type of tale? Try these: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Q-Space by Greg Cox

I had a really hard time coming up with suggestions for this book because I haven't read anything else quite like it. Has anyone read The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney and this book? What would the comparisons be? Is there any better suggestions you may have?

Ready to buy it?
