The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Screaming, my body explained. You're screaming.
I froze in shock, and the sound broke off abruptly.
This was not a memory.
My body - she was thinking! Speaking to me!

Bought this book at Popular in Miri for RM$37.90. Before I bought this book, it's on my list after I read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight. Though, I have a doubt about buying it because of other reviews I read online. This book truly shocks me because I still couldn't believe that this book is Stephenie Meyer's writing. I'm a big fan of the Twilight saga so that explains the shock and expecting similar from her other writings.

Ok, the story is about unseen enemy invaded the world. You know like aliens (my first thought was, 'Agh! Cliches!'). They take over the minds of the human hosts so they're like a robot being controlled. Melanie Stryder is one of the victims of this invasion. Wanderer, the invading "souls" was given to Melanie's body to extract informations from her memories to find other humans. Though, Melanie shows Wanderer a vision of a man called Jared whom Melanie loves. Unable to seperate herself from her body's desire, Wanderer began to track down the man.

So, it's like an alien controls a body, trying to get informations about the whereabouts of other humans and try to 'convert' them into one of 'them' though Wanderer break the rules and try to find the man of her Human Host so she could be with him and not to give him up to the Seekers. When she founds the humans (well, she was found at first) she was treated as a prisoner because of what she is.

It's like 809 pages, and believe me, I almost cry reading it. Truly saddened by some chapters and that should not be happening! All in all...

Esma, I've watched the movie halfway because I can't bear watching the whole kissing scenes (yes, plural!) but i still think the novel is good to read. I'm not sure what type of books you prefer so I'm not sure if this is the type of book for u to read or not. Its sci-fi + romance type of book
