In The Host, an alien life force has taken over earth and 'hosts' (what I picture to be jelly fish like beings with thousands of tentacles) are implanted into captured humans. Once implanted the hosts wrap their tentacles around all the synapsis' in the brain, the vertebrae etc until they have total control over the human. The majority of the time the implant is successful however there are a few humans still on earth who are not giving up without a fight. One of them is Melanie Styder. The story is slow at first but once Melanie (who has been implanted with a "host") finds her brother and boyfriend in a hidden rebel cell led by her uncle, the story starts moving along.
