The author of the Twilight series of #1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.
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.

    From Tuhdb
    I first read this about 3 years ago... I loved it! I've read it so many times again... and I still love it :) It does start off pretty boring but definitely picks up... it's nothing like twilight so don't judge it based on that. It's amazing!

  • Stick to crappy love stories, sweetheart.

    From grace danglio
    She's obviously trying a science fiction story because its in now, like The Hunger Games and Divergent. At least they make it clear by information, she makes it so bluntly obvious, not to mention that she just had to add in a sappy love story. She needs to stick to her crappy love stories and leave the sci-fi to the professionals, or at least decent writers.
  • Amazing

    This book is sooooo different twilight. The story line is completely different. Even if you hated Twilight this book will be amazing!!!
