My GR friends were right... it wasn't really a good book. I thought the introduction was promising, but the pacing was too slow for me. The action didn't happen until near the end of the book. The love story part was kind of cheesy for me, and I didn't enjoy it.

I was so disappointed that Henri died.
I was happy that Six arrived.

I've also seen the movie. I thought it would be awesome since the trailer was a WOW! But I got bored eventually. My friend even asked me how long it was going to take before the actual action scenes finally happen. I was disappointed when I left the movie house. The only thing that made the movie bearable was, of course, Alex Pettyfer's face.

I was so, so bored with the story, I don't want to even right a longer review about it. :(


My EARLIER review, before I read the book:

I'm going to read this because of Alex Pettyfer. And also because I want to know why my friends gave this a bad rating. I'm not really into aliens, but I have read The Host, so I guess there's no harm in trying to read this. If I hated it I would sell my copy to someone who's a die-hard Alex P. fan.

Strange, I have a good feeling about this book. I hope I won't be disappointed.


It turned out the opposite. :(((
