Well, like pretty much everyone else I know, I enjoyed the Twilight series, so I thought I'd check out Stephanie Meyers' book aimed towards adults instead of teens. I honestly didn't see a difference as far as adult vs. teens but I enjoyed it just the same. Meyer has a great ability to keep you turning pages I ended up reading two or three hundred pages (This is a 600+ page book) in a day if I had time. The story is about a fictional earth where aliens have taken over by inhabiting all the humans (hosts). The Host follows on alien in particular who happens to be interted into a resistant host. We then follow the two personalities through a number of adventures and perilous situations as they struggle to learn to live with each other and themselves. I'd recommend this if you like Twilight, the pace and writing are very similar and the story itself covers an interesting and somewhat frightening topic.
