I decided to read The Host after I read the Twilight Series, well in between books in the series. If you have read the Twilight series, please do not try and compare those books to this one. The Host is a great book written by a great author. I won't lie, it did take me a little while to get into the book, but once I did I couldn't seem to put it down. This isn't a book that you would want to pass up. The world that the book takes place in is totally something that you could see happening, and the characters are ones that you could relate to as well. I love science fiction but a book about aliens coming to earth and inhabiting human bodies wasn't one that I thought I would enjoy. I looked over the book a couple of times while in a book store, but finally just went ahead and got it. I am very glad I did. I'm trying to get everyone I know that loves the Twilight series to read this book. If you haven't read the Twilight series this is a great way to get introduced to the writing styles of Stephenie Meyer, you will want to read all of the other books that she has written and make you a fan for life!!!
After reading Eclipse, Twlight, and New Moon I was sure this book would be great. I have a had a very hard time reading it. It does not keep my attention and it is certainly different. I am not saying that it is a bad book, but just one that I don't care for.

I loved the Twilight Series so I read this book as well. This is a good book. It is not quite at the level of the Twilight series but it is still a good read. It is aimed at a little bit older audience than Twilight but with Stephenie Meyers' books age is really not relevant. Any age from teens to retirees can read and love her books. In this book she is true to form with being able to really "pull you in" to her story line and with her characters.
This was a great book. I'm not a fan of science fiction typically, but decided to buy & read it because I enjoyed the Twilight Series so much. This book was written for adults, whereas the Twilight series was aimed for teens originally, but is still appropriate for a teenager. This was definitely a page-turner and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I would recommend to anyone that enjoys reading. It isn't heavy science fiction and would be enjoyable for most anyone. The character development was complex & thoughtfully done and the story line is very original and engrossing. Plans have also just been made to turn this into a movie.
Ordered this book as I am a huge fan of Stephanie Meyers. Book was so much more cheaper than what I found it for in the stores. Wish I would have thought about buying the Twilight Saga books here before I paid full price for them in the stores. Book was here within 5days.
I think this is one of the best books ever. I loved Twilight and its followers but I was alittle concious. The book was said to be not that good but I beg to differ not that I have read it. This book falls right into the same category as the Twilight Saga and If my friends were looking for a good book, I would recemend this one.
It took me a little while to get into the first 20 pages of the book, but afterward I could not put it down. I still think about the characters. Can't wait for Stephanie Myers to publish more books even a sequel to the Host. I will be reading it again.
This book draws a world and draws you into it. There is such a realistic feel to a very unreal world. The writing is original, addictive, and entertaining. Stephenie Meyer is so talented that she seemlessly weaves a story that makes you unaware it is being written, it is as if it is being lived--a movie in your head. Totally original wihtout being obvious, or trying to be, it just 'is'. If this book were a meal it would be the best dinner you ever ate, totally filling, and different, yet familar, like a memory of a dream.
Try this book if you want to know what it feels to be trapped in your own body. A alien in a strange land. Learning to get along with total strangers and their customs. This book is that and more.. I loved it from the first page to the last. This book is a keeper!!!
