Your ‘Host’ Will Be With You Shortly

In case you hadn’t heard — of course I have you covered, man — there’s quite a bit of buzz in the book world right now as Stephanie Meyer, the author of the “Twilight” series of national No. 1 bestsellers, has just delivered her first novel for adults: The Host, which is now on sale down at the old neighborhood bookstore.

“The Host,” according to the publisher promo copy, is “a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.”

Here’s the full summary:

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.

    when i reached the end of the book i said to myself their must be a sequel. like how their were other human groups hiding and the world is still invaded with souls or parasites makes it unending…that book can continue and still be interesting..b ut still i dont understand how it came to be an adult book..twilight has more sexual contents than the host …but this book kept me up all night…this novel is 651 pages and i read it in a day and a half it was magnificent..i was utterly speechless at the end of the book completely. so with out any hesitation im proud to say stephanie is one of my best authors of all time after edgar allan poe ofcourse…she amazing…WHOEVER DID NOT GET THE CHANCE TO READ THIS BOOK IS MISSING ALOT WHEN IT COMES TO BOOKS OVERALLL. writers must envy her she has such an imagination that just makes me wonder and want to know what she thinks about half of the time. this book contains alien life form in the humanworld and different species loving each other despite their differences
