About this item

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

Just like her Twilight series, Meyer has created an amazing love story. I would recommend this book to friends and family. It is hard to get into the book when you first start reading it, but if you give it a chance you will find that it will be very difficult to put down. I stayed up until 3 a.m. some nights because I was enjoying it so much. Easy read, and very good story.

Awesome read, a little hard to get into in the beginning of the book but then it wraps you up and doesn't let go. Unable to put it down...another amazing book by Stehanie Meyers....I hope there is a Host 2!!! :)

I had already read The Host, by Stephenie Meyer, when it came out in hardback. However, the author has issued this paperback edition with some editorial improvements. I especially like the new Epilogue. Stephenie's writing always draws the reader into the world of the characters and makes you feel the events as if there. Although the book is considered Science Fiction it is also an excellent adult drama so don't be aftaid of the genre. Great Read!
