The Host

The Host
By Stephenie Meyers

Foxy cliff notes
The world has been over taken by an alien species, called the "Souls". The "Souls" are a parasitic alien race, who believe they have a mission to force the human race to live in peace, by using the human body as a host.
Not all of the human race are keen on being a host and go into hiding.  Melanie Stryder is one of these humans in hiding and she has lived in harsh conditions with her boyfriend, Jared and brother, Jamie. On one of their gathering trips into the city Melanie gets caught by the souls. But to prevent herself to becoming one of them she jumps to her death. Unfortunately, the aliens revive her body and implant an alien named Wanderer into her. Wanderer, now has all of Melanie's memories and is instructed by the souls to find the other humans. As Wanda, the Wanderer, is trying to unlock Melanie's memories and Wanda develops feelings for a young man she has never met before. Also she is able to find the other humans but is always in conflict with Mel. Will the "Souls" find where Wanda is? Will Wanda help the humans and betray her own race?

My Skinny on The Host
With this book going onto the big screen this month, I thought it would be fun to do a book review on it. The Host is a good book to read. There are 2 love triangles, action, some dull parts, and much more. If you were a fan of the Twilight series this book is not at all like it. Don't get your hopes up. With that said, I thought it was an interesting read. I almost liked it better then the Twilight series. It is written with context geared to an older age. I would rate this book PG-13 by movie standers. There isn't a lot of bad context, but there are adult philosophies (deep thinking).
I rate this book 3 out of 5 Foxes. Only because I have read better books.
