Stephenie Meyer is an amazing phenomenon. Out of the brightness of her mind and spirit comes the illuminated darkness of her stories. For no matter how much pain her characters suffer, Meyer infuses the tales with light and hope. -- Orson Scott Card, author of The Ender Saga --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

You will like the book because the imagination is strong, the characters are vivid as they are in the vampire books, and it is satisfying. Some good twists in it, too.
You may have hitches with some of the sweet moments. They are, like the vampire books, a laid on a tad thick.
Otherwise, what do you have to lose? Have a go!
'The Host' tells the story of the secret invasion of Earth, the souls arrive and slowly but surely
take over by implanting souls into human beings.
The story is interesting, I liked the idea of the souls taking over the earth, truly believing what they were doing, is for the greater good but as you read, you find out maybe it was not and Wanderer finds that out too, which is an important part of the story.
Wanderer is a wonderful character, she really is, because she is a soul, she knows nothing of violence, etc, she just wants to give and help, as all the souls do but even though as much as they want to help, they fail to see the good in humans, all they see are their flaws.
For the first time in a long time, Wanderer finds a home, love, the last remaining family of Melanie and the human survivors. Melanie/Wanderer is willing to risk it all to save others.
I enjoyed 'The Host' because it was about the good in people, all people. not just the souls but humans.
'The Host' is not just a sci-fi book, its more than that I felt, Stephenie Meyer creates an amazing character in Wanderer, a character you genuinely care for.
The only downside I found, was Jared, Melanie's partner, who refuses to accept Wanderer or what Wanderer says but eventually he does but I just felt it was all for his own gain, which of course, highlighted another human trait which the souls felt had to be taken away.
Read 'The Host' with an open mind, you will thank me for it.
