What would you do, if one day your mind no longer was your own?
My name is Melanie Stryder, I'm seventeen years old and from Tuscon, Arizona. I am also one of the survivors, still on the run. There are not many of us left and everyday our numbers are steadily decreasing.
The beasts that we are running from are clever, too clever. We only got one rule, never let them catch you. If they do, you will become one of them, you will suffer a faith worse than death itself. They will take over your body, mind and soul. You will no longer be the one in control. So we are running, constantly.
This is a book for the adventurous ones, it captures the reader within the first line and holds you by your breath until the very last word. It’s a fascinating mixture between tension, sorrow and deep unconditional love. It takes the reader on a journey together with the fleeing Melanie, a girl with a mind of steel and an incredible determination to never give up. A journey that will inspire you to find your inner strength.
Stephenie Meyer has done it again, the author of the “Twilight series” has now written another bestseller. “The host” is a marvellous piece, written in an entrancing way with incredible environment and character descriptions. Meyers has used her brilliant writing skills and created a book which will capture anybody's heart. She has managed to turn the otherwise so boy dominated genre sci-fi, into a piece for everybody. It does not matter if you are young/old/girl/boy, this book will surely catch your attention and keep it until the end of the very last page.
