I finally finished a book in a month that should have been full of finished books. I read The Host by Stephanie Meyer. It was no Twilight – nowhere near as good – but it was still very enjoyable and interesting. The premise is usually something that would not interest me. Aliens taking over the planet by taking over all human bodies is not something that I would usually read. The fact that Stephanie Meyer wrote it and I am in love with the Twilight series is the only reason I did. But it turned out to be pretty interesting. It some interesting philosophies in it. The aliens are peaceful and they look at humans as these wonderfully intelligent and emotional creatures but that they are also these horribly cruel creatures who needlessly kill their own. So the question is: do you need the bad to have the good? Does our inhumanity come with our humanity?
If you like Twilight, don't expect this to be the same. But give it a shot.
