The Host Stephenie Meyer read online review & book description:

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.

  • One of the best books I’ve ever read

    I bought this book because I am a huge twi hard and I was looking for something to read and I thought I’d try one of Stephanie Meyer’s other books. I love sci fi and I thought this might be good.It did not disappoint. It started a little slow but once I got in to it I literally could not put it down. I actually read this book while I walked. It is so good. Ian is definitely the best character. I love the romance between Ian and Wanda. I love the relationship between Wanderer and Melanie.The book really makes you care about the characters. This book is truly spectacular.
  • Amazing!!

    Nothing wrong with the actual book as the Host is probably the only meyer book I enjoy. The app was not transparent enough as to which was the audiobook and was a text version. Buy this thinking it's the audio version for a 24 hour car ride and to my dismay it's the book itself. There goes 8.99 and the ability to actually enjoy this book.
  • Ah, here you are.

    The twilight series is laughable next to this. The Host is so good, I love Wanda, she’s got an interesting thing going with Ian, and then there’s Melanie, who definitely wants out. It’s a really good sci fi, really crazy love triangle in here, just wanted to give you a fair warning. Definitely read this book, it’s so great.
  • Good

    If you can get past the slow opening, this is far better than the Twilight Saga
  • Amazing Tearjerking Sci-fi

    Loved everything about this book. The way that she writes the perspective of the main character really makes you feel connected and empathetic towards the conflicts that arise. It has enough elements of science fiction, action, and emotional turmoil to really get you hooked on it.

    I read this book for the first time years ago, and I always come back. I’ve read my physical copy so many times the spine fell apart. It’s such a beautiful story about humanity- the beauty and darkness that exists in all of us. It’s a story of loss, war, the will to survive, and love above all else. These characters worm their way into your heart and the story keeps you invested until the very end. This book is just an amazing read. I imagine I’ll read it many more times in the coming years.
