The Host – Customer Review
Listened day and night for this novel – This was truly the first audio book that I simply couldn’t take out of my ears/head. Although it goes along a relatively simple story line the emotions are so well depicted and so well interpreted by the reader that you simply can not put your audio device down. I will sure be listening to it once again. It was simple and beautiful, sci-fi and love story, epic journey and family affair all in one. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel.
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of 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.
