rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well, I must say I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. I fell in love with Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga and I was unsure how I would like The Host, especially since aliens are not a genre I enjoy reading about. Meyer has a talent for writing memorable characters that have the ability to captivate the reader. One of Meyer's greatest achievements with this novel is creating a story that I couldn't tell what was going to happen next. She kept me guessing until the last page. There were a few quirky things that made me go, "huh?" but, considering the human race is on the verge of being annihilated, I guess some of my "huh" moments could be plausible given the context of the book. Overall it is an exciting page turner! Just as Meyer made me (someone who doesn't read vampire books) a fan of her "vampire" books; she also made me someone who, for the first time, enjoyed an alien book. Well done Stephenie.
