Earth has been quietly, non aggressively conquered by a kind, pacifist species unable to lie or deceive, who go by different names on different planets in different languages Here they call themselves souls , while the rebel humans who have slipped through the net call them parasites They are silvery, ribbon like sentient creatures small enough to hold in two hands, covered in feathery antennae Inserted into the back of a host body s skull, they take over a host s mind and motor functions to the point that The Host s mind is completely subsumed in effect, killing them.
That is, until Earth, where The Hosts fight back.
Wanderer has lived full life cycles on nine Okay, so I was reading along, and thinking all, hey, this is pretty interesting Not bad, Stephenie And then I got to about page 80 or so, and OH MY GOD THERE IT IS AGAIN, THE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SAPPINESS OH MY EYES MY EYESI just can t do it CAN T DO IT AGAIN Not the older man, and the younger woman, and the 5 page discussion of why they can t have sex yet because NO DEAR YOU RE JUST NOT READY EVEN THOUGH YOU REALLY WANT IT BECAUSE LOOK, YOU RE A GIRL AND YOU CAN T POSSIBLY MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS.
BUT JARED I LOOOOVE YOU YOU ARE MY SOULMATE BECAUSE WHY I DON T KNOW, I JUST LOVE YOU MAYBE BECAUSE OF YOUR STRONG JAW AND GOLDEN SKIN AND BLOND HIGHLIGHTS AND LACK OF A PERSONALITY THAT IS PROBABLY IT I LOVE YOU TOO, MELANIE AND I WILL PROTECT YOU AND NEVER LET YOU DO ANYTHING EVEN THOUGH YOU ALREADY SAVED YOURSELF AND YOUR BROTHER FROM HORRIBLE ALIENS i think i need to go
I originally had not planned on even reading this book because the Twilight series instills much rage within my soul, but I was in a dry spell for reading, so I decided to give it a try I have to say I really enjoyed it much than the Twilight series I have seen a lot of people complain about how slow the beginning was, but I didn t really notice It sucked me in pretty quickly It was very clearly a Stephenie Meyer book, though, which did lead to certain amounts of anger and eyes rolling nearly out of my head My biggest complaint with Stephenie Meyer is her romantic plots I feel like I ve accidentally picked up a Harlequin romance It is super cheesy and super melodramatic It makes my brain hurt Here s an example I stared into Jared s eyes, and the strangest thing happened All the melting, melding, welding that I had just been through was shoved aside, into the smallest part I must be a masochist Why else would I pick this book up in the first place, let alone finish it And it was so NOT worth it To sum up my impressions of this story WAAAAAHHHHHHH WHYYYYYYYThis refers to the pointless waste of an entire tropical forest on the printing of this 600 pager in which NOTHING happens I kid you not Well, what else did I expect from a woman who created sparkly virgin vampires Hanging my head in shame In my defense, here is the quote from this trainwreck bookPerhaps without the lows, the highs could not be reachedMaybe I expected the highs just teeny tiny highs after Twilight the sparkly book I don t speak of This definitely had the aforementioned lows, but also a conspicuous absence of highs And it didn t even have the unintentional hilarity of Twilight sparkly series WAAAHHHHHH EXTRA EXTRA read ALL ABOUT ITThere will be a movie
