The Host!

Ok... I read it and have to say that even though it has a completely different feel and whole new story away from Twilight - I really enjoyed it Smile

The book was more sci fi than I have ever been, but it had some neat twists and thoughts. I could not put it down. If you are expecting the Twilight again it isn't, but if you are looking for a good read by a great author I say go for it. Very well done. So out of 5 stars I give 4 out of 5. Simply because It really is hard to top Twilight series, or even My Sister's Keeper... and such, but so worth the read still. Smile

For me it isn't quite as easy a read as the Twilight series was. I find myself having to re-read some things to figure out who is speaking. So far, so good though.

You know... I did find that in a couple spots, but then got a hang of it. It happened maybe 2 or 3 times. What part are you at now? or how far in are you by page. Either one is fine. Smile

I'm getting ready to start Chapter 8 (pg 69), so not very far in at all yet.

Oh... it just gets better from here!!! I would say in the 90's I was seriously hooked.

I thought it was really interesting but it definitely did not grab my attention the way Twilight did. It took me about a week to read instead of 10 hours lol!

I can't say it compares to Twilight. Completely different stories. I have a girlfriend who loves Host even more than Twilight. I think she was hit in the head with something - LOL!

Still working on it, I'm not a great deal further along with it. My last day before summer break is Friday, then I should be able to finish it pretty quickly.
