The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I just finished reading this long book and must say that I really liked it! Science Fiction meets Romance without all the mushy details. Well there was some mush but it was bearable.In this story the earth has been taken over by beings that call themselves Souls. They are your standard Scifi parasite that takes over the human host and continue on with a human life with the Soul in control. The Soul Wanderer is placed in Melanie's body but finds that she can't suppress and do away with Melanie. They coexist in Melanie's body and soon Wanderer finds herself caring for the people and things Melanie cared for.My thoughts: Throughout this book the Soul Wanderer claimed that Souls were kind, would never hurt anyone. However this view doesn't go with the fact that they took over a whol planet of people and effectively murdered them. This was never addressed.

I loved this book! Nice review.

Did you know Stephenie Meyer is writing a sequel to The Host? It will be called The Soul and it's supposed to be out next year.
