Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, 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.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts 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 yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

  • The Host

    I'm listening to the book now and it's a really fascinating take on alien possession. I like the book, but if it ever comes out in an abridged copy I would recommend that you buy the abridged version. The author gets too wrapped up in emotional angst.

  • Not so great

    As a reader of the poplular Stephanie Meyer Twilight series I bought this novel on tape for a road trip thinking it would be entertaining. This audiobook defintely left much to be desired. The only good thing about it is that it's very long, so good for long roadtrips. But the story was boring and the narrator was not great to listen to.
