Thorin This book is like nothing you have ever seen before. Even though aliens are the big problem, it is not just your regular alien-invasion sci-fy book. It makes you question the problems in the world today and the emotions are so clear, you feel them right through the page. Plus; there is a four-way love triangle. It gets pretty complicated when two people are sharing one body.
Katja I don't think its similar to Twilight at all. This book makes you think about humanity and world living in a different and special way. The love story is kind of odd - but the style of writing has been improved and I really enjoyed the interactions in Melanies head ;)
Olivia Kern This book is good...The beginning is a bit slow reading but once you get in a few chapters it is great. Definitely a must read.
Julio Oliva Is a great book, it makes you think about -what are we doing with our planet? with our kind, with ourselves. It's soso at the beginning but then BOOOM! Read it
Janelle Kelley This book reminds me of Hunger Games to a point. I liked it. Started kind of slow for me. I put it down for a while and went back to it. That's just my opinion. Good book tho.
Allie I personally felt that it was extremely different from Twilight. I did not enjoy Twilight one bit, but The Host is one of my all time favorites. The first few chapters are slow, but it sped up quickly! I didn't sleep much that night. I would definably recommend this book.
Lia Stephenie Meyer really did an amazing job here. I hated the twilight series but I absolutely fell in love with this book.
Caitlyn:) I haven't read the book yet, but I watched the movie and it is amazing. It IS as good as it sounds, and if you like romance/adventure kind of books then I completely recommend that you read it.
John Closer to Invasion of the Body Snatchers , but one of the pods ends up liking people as friends.
Tina Mitchell I enjoyed Twilight but this is not on the same lines...no vampires but an unusual story line. A little slow at start maybe but I had no trouble completing the book!
Iqra It is an amazing book.Definitely worth your time.
Devanshi Gupta It's really boring and long. And very dramatic and stuff that you can't miss in Meyer's books. But it's better than Twilight.
Josephine Personally, I felt this book was similar to Twilight'. So, if you liked 'Twilight' you will probably like this book.
