    Default Why?

    Why can't I get into reading The Host by Stephanie Meyer? I loved the Twilight series but I just can't seem to read this book. It's been sitting around for 2 weeks now and I'm on chapter 5. That's strange for me since I can usually finish a book in a matter of days. Why or why can't I just enjoy you book?

    I couldnt get into it either. It took me a few times of reading to get thru it. I finally got thru it on audio book. It was really a difficult read, especiall after Twilight

    I also had a more difficult time getting into it, and unlike The Twilight Series, I haven't had much of a desire to re-read it. Now contrary to all I just said, I did actually enjoy the book, though it took me about 100 pages to really get into it. I usually don't give any book that much, but I love Meyer's stuff so much that I kept on with it, and it did finally hook me. GL!!

    I couldnt do it either. I got about 40 pages and then abandoned it. There are just so many things that I want to read and hate to waste any time with something that does not garb me.

    Glad to hear I am not the only one. I gave up on it. I was told to keep reading b/c it was an awesome book, it just took a while.

    It was a harder one for me to read because I am not so much into the sci fi. It did have a good ending, but it was not near the caliber of her Twilight series!

    Ok, I have to admit that it's growing on me. I'm about 1/2 done with it and I'm enjoying it. I'm glad I didn't give up on it

    I finished it at 3:30 am. I really enjoyed it...alot more than I thought I was going to. I actually was unable to put it down once I passed the 100 page mark.

    It was about that for me as well. it was just so confusing up to that point, then the story finally started to flow well.

    With your last post it said it was edited by me, sorry I was trying to quote you and ended up typing on your post (mod here). Once I realized I took my comments out and put them here where they should be. So sorry.
