~Kate~ (katesbooklife) i really liked this book its not as gud as twilight saga but its still worth a read. the only thing i think is wrong wiv this book is that its a little confussing in places but wen u get ur head around wots goin on its not so bad.

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments Give it until chapter five... that's what I tell everyone... that's when I found the book addicting :)


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

what if a book dosen't have chapters?

I only say "give it to chapter 5" for The Host... :)


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

ok that makes more sense. XD


message 7: by Maria Isabella (new)

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments Yeah... I found it hard to understand in the beginning... so I also like to tell my friends to "Keep an open mind". :)


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

the begining is strange.


message 9: by Maria Isabella (new)

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments that's sci-fi for you, lol.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't like sci-fi that much, but this book was more about love. what do you think?


message 11: by Maria Isabella (new)

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments I loved it. I cried like a baby. I also loved the characters. Stephenie really knows how to emphasize on their personalities and physical looks... its easy imagine yourself there, actually seeing and understanding the characters. You know?


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes! What other books do you like?


message 13: by Maria Isabella (new)

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments I just read Evermore and Blue Moon by Alyson Noel... I liked it a lot... but it isn't Twilight :)

its a bit complicated its about a thing that lives in humans bodies usually the human that they r in goes away or arent strong but the 1 in this case is. not many people like these things but they learn 2 luv this 1

The "thing" are called "Souls". They are implanted in human "Host" bodies. Once implanted, they have full control of the body. Wanderer (the main character) gets a difficult "host" body, Melanie. Melanie is still present in Wanderer's mind, which is not suppose to happen. Throughout the book you read the conflict between the two. It's complicated at first but Stephenie is great at what she does and you soon get the gist of it. I don't want to give too much away but as Wanderer tries to probe Melanie's thoughts to locate a group of human resistance, Melanie fills Wanderer with memories of her love, Jared. Melanie and Wanderer set off to try to find the "men" they both love. Great book :)

message 26: by Maria Isabella (new)

Maria Isabella Franco (isabella1918) | 20 comments Yeah! Especially that scene where she is going to collect the meds for Jaime... I hated Jared!


message 27: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) yeah i wasnt so keen on jared either he was rather mean 2 her at the beginning but hey he thought he'd lost the luv of his life


message 28: by Diana (new)

Diana  (higura_natume) | 31 comments liked it better than twilight

for once, the main character gets the crap beaten out of her

and i got to get all obsessive and be like "GO IAN! NOT JARED!"

plus, the wanderer is such a cool name!

the love quadrangle was pretty interesting too


message 29: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) yeah that was interesting i luv ian


message 30: by I'amber (new)

I'amber (xiamberx) | 96 comments Ohh, this book took a few chapters to understand but once it did I was sucked in.

I loved it, and I wish she'd make another to it.

I loved Ian too, [:

Carlene (ctaylor66) the host was hard to understand at first but it got really good. i was addicted


message 37: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) yup i definately agree wiv u


message 38: by Diana (new)

Diana  (higura_natume) | 31 comments although i must say, im not particularly fond of the ideas for the other "places" the wanderer has lived in

I mean, a planet with dolphins

and a planet with bears?

i dunno, just kind of confused there


message 39: by I'amber (new)

I'amber (xiamberx) | 96 comments

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) i agree on the not as gud as twilight but i only started liking jared at the end of the book


Rebecca  ❤ Bea ❤ | 71 comments i no he was horrid to her at the beginning but the did think she had basically murdered the love of his life, I mean anyone would be pretty pissed of right?


message 46: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) true but he didnt have 2 b so evil about it tho


Rebecca  ❤ Bea ❤ | 71 comments so if someone murdered someone you loved and then paraded around in their body you wouldn't be a total bitch to them? lol
