The Host  (The Host #1)

By Stephenie Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars






“I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.” -Ian

Wow!!What a stupendous book by an incredible author...

Well I guess you already read the blurb which is very important as it holds the main story of the book.Here are the most signigicant part:

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

It's an amazing book.The author has created a whole new world which everyone lives in peace with each other but with what cost?Humans no longer exist.

Melanie belongs to the resistance.In other words she is one of the many humans that believe that these aliens have invaded our world and stole our lives.When Melanie gets caught by the Seekers,the healers decide it would be better if they gave her body in a soul that is capable of unlocking Melanie's memories.So they put Wanderer in her.But not everything goes as plant.Although Wanda can see some of Melanie's memories she can also hear her voice.Not good.Initially she is shocked by this fact but as time goes by they both become accustomed to each other.But Melanie wants both her body and family back.So when an extraordinary Seeker keeps following her,Melanie and Wanda know what to do.They try to find her brother and love of her life,Jamie and Jared.Nevertheless,none of them know what to expect of such a journey and surely what they find is beyond what they were looking for.

The Host was beyond anything I was prepared to read.It had so much emotion in every and each page.Especially the second half of the book.There was a variety of characters,each with its own personality,most important of whom were:Jamie,Melanie's brother,Jared,Melanie's boyfriend,Jeb,Mel's uncle,Ian ad Kail,two brothers that both tried to kill Wanda but as the story evolves they reconsider,The doctor,a real doctor which tales care of them but can't really do much considering the circumstances.There were so many characters and all were unique.I thoroughly enjoyed reading about them.

The Host is a must book.I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of books.It was a new experience for me as well,as it's the first time that I read such a book.I would like to read more though.There are some that say that Stephenie Meyer will write two more books for the series but nothing's sure.Here is the potential title of the second and third book:The Soul and The Seeker.

Blurb:

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, 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.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind 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 begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.
