Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, didn't expect to find its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
As Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who still lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she's never met. Reluctant allies, Wanderer and Melanie set off to search for the man they both love.
Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOSTis a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human.

It was VERY slow in the beginning, but once it picked up I couldn't put it down. Can not wait for the next one.

I know, you're thinking...this is the author of the Twilight series...it's written for teen girls. WRONG! The book is so well written, so emotional, so intricate, so perfect... I read it so FAST. Then I was sorry I did. I recently went looking for information on a sequel, after having reread the book for a second time and found out..... THERE'S GOING TO BE A MOVIE!!! YAY!!!! It's release is scheduled for March 2013. Books are usually better than the movie so I'm still holding out for the sequel. ~Fingers crossed

OMG.....I loved this book & have read it several,several times & have heard it on c.d. to work several times, let it be known, that the book starts out very slow & I personally don't think the book started to get good until after pg 198 and after that you are laugh'ng,cry'ng and now they have this bonus chapter, I only read today........if you want a new excit'ng adventure & in a non-space adventure kind of way, as this book & the characters puts you on the edge of your seat, you will love,hate,hate & love & laugh & cry........I can't wait for the movie, I also can't wait until the sequels come......so please buy this book & re-read it as you will learn something new every time........again it starts out slow but trust me........you will love this book & you will have't to pick teams, jared or ian...........the bonus chapter showed me a different side to even melanie........buy this book for yourself & teenager.........its worth it...........10 **************************
