I stayed up all night reading her book. I couldn't put it down. Still with 5 hours of sleep I'm here writing about it.
Stephenie Meyer, loved for her YA Vampire series the Twilight Saga, even said to have followed in J.K. Rowling's foot steps by Wall Street Journal, inspires us with her first Adult Novel, The Host. Compelling work full of love, hate, betrayal blending it with science fiction and awkward romance that work so well together. Earth invaded by parasites. Latching their silvery selves to our brains. They are called Souls, they invade our bodies and erase our personalities making it their own. But one refuses to give up, even after being caught and turning into them. A Soul called Wanderer has been implanted to Melanie Stryder, one of the last humans to remain themselves on earth. Wanderer is a kind of celebrity in her own species, having inhabited many hosts and planets. But inhabiting a human body is unlike anything she has experienced. She soons finds out that Melanie isn't about to give up just yet. Soon she is overwhelmed by Melanie's memories and forced to reconnect with her old life.
As a fan, I simply don't read books about aliens. But I guess she just changed my mind, along with her vampire novels which I also didn't have a taste for. Thank you Stephenie Meyer, for changing my mind :]
