The Host by Stephenie Meyer

“I, the soul called Wanderer, love you, human Ian. And that will never change, no matter what I might become.”

Completely conscious of the fact that it was Stephenie Meyer, the author of Twilight, Stephenie Meyer who wrote this book, my brother decided to bring this book for me from the library. Frankly, I was rather shocked when he brought it, since he has always refused to let me read Twilight(Not that I want to). But I think my brother's effort was in vain as this book is simply asinine.

Melanie Stryder is one agitating girl, who refuses to leave her body, when the earth is attacked by species which invade humans hosts and take over their minds. A certain spirit named "Wanderer" takes over her body, and is shocked to see that the previous tenant refuses to leave. Then Melanie fills her mind with visions of her lover, Jared, and "Wanderer" begins to love him, too. Together, they set out to find him.

I must be a masochist! If I wasn't, then I wouldn't have forced myself to read 620 pages of this. I know my vision on constructive criticism is like Cat Valentine say "We hate you," while she exits, but my vision on a good plot is definitely not something like this fatuous book.

When I say a decent book, I refer to a book with less romance, good plot, comprehensible episodes, and good writing. Yes, I simply can't stand Meyer's writing. Take the quote I posted earlier. And well, let's say, I found this book really ludicrous.

When I finished the book, I couldn't help but sing. Why don't you take a look at the song?

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more


If you really want to read a young-adult book, I suggest Divergent.
