Considering I’m not a big fan of books about aliens, the fact that I actually liked this one is huesprd big deal!
HuÃ©sped / The Host: Stephenie Meyer: : Libros
The story was cleverly told, weaving multiple plot lines together seamlessly. But, best of all, Meyer presented me with new characters – particularly Wanderer, Ian and Jamie – to care about and be invested in.
Wanderer, or Wanda, as she’s known in the novel, is my favorite of the characters. It’s not just because I like her name, or how it symbolizes the totality of who she is and the kind of person I’d like to be when it comes to travel. It’s because I adored her spirit. In spite of being a soul, part of an alien race that takes over various planets through their insertion into the planet’s inhabitants, Wanda is kind, considerate, generous and intelligent.
The sincerity of her choices was appealing, and easy to like, so it’s not surprising that I grew really attached to her. Ian and Jamie would tie for my second favorite character in this novel, as they’re both important parts of Wanda’s story. Jamie is the little brother of Melanie, Wanderer’s “host”. Through Melanie’s memories and her own interactions with him, Wanda grows to love him and it’s really sweet to see how he responds so honestly and sincerely to her.
He was always able to distinguish between the two – Melanie and Wanda – which was certainly great. Ian also ended up having the same ability, even though initially he was against Wanda’s presence in their little band of humans. Witnessing his transformation and watching his regard for Wanda really grow as the story progressed made it easy to like him as much as Wanderer did. Honestly, the book’s beginning was pretty rough. It took a few chapters before I felt invested enough to keep on turning the pages, but once it clicked, the feeling of needing to know what happened next stayed with me up until the end.
Meyer did a great job with the story-telling, combining romance, friendship and a bigger conflict. Instead of filling this book with physical action scenes, Meyer chose a slightly quieter route where she convinced readers to care about these characters and then presented us with a moral conflict that fits the context of their story. Doing so could have potentially backfired, but it definitely ended up working well.
If what I’ve said in my review isn’t enough to convince you to read the book, maybe the knowledge that I actually teared up while reading it will.
I was that emotionally invested in Wanderer’s story, and Melanie’s too! Meyer caught me off guard with how good I found The Host. If you’re unsure whether or not to give this book a try, let me be the first to suggest you give it a chance because you might just be surprised like I was.
I read this book back in my mid-teens when I was a huge Twilight fan and discovered that this was the same author. Though this is more for young adults rather than teens, the story has changed my view of life and humanity in ways I did not expect.
I highly reccomend this book and this hardcover edition. The fact that this story is completely possible in some distant future is what I like the most though. It’s more about the discovery of the true essence of being human. About the prose and the story itself–compelling, marvelously written, gets you real emotional at times, makes you identify and sometimes scream out loud Don’t watch the movie, read this! I read this novel in and found it much different from her Twilight series and much better than the movie of this book.
The story is told from Wanderer’s point of view. Her people exist by being implanted into other beings and taking over their lives.
Sounds like “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” without the absence of emotion present with the aliens in that movie. This is the only way they can exist off their home planet and they have invaded and taken over many planets. Ironically they are a peaceful species and the humans that are turned into hosts mostly cease to exist, but the Souls retain the memory of their hosts.
Wanderer’s host is Melanie, a rebel female who stays present in Wanderer’s mind and eventually they work together. There is also the added twist of romance with one man who loved Melanie and another who loves Wanderer, but both women share one body. I like the time the author takes to develop the human relationships with Wanderer which is at first hostile, violent and suspicious, but evolves with the help of Melanie’s uncle. This isn’t a flashy plot with guns blazing, but instead focuses on relationships, day to day existence, discovery, trust in both human and alien.
This is probably the 4th time I read this book, only this time I listened to the audio book and it was so well done. This is such a great story. Stephenie Meyer is such a talented writer and I wish so much she would continue and finish this series. I would love to see what happens next and enjoy another adventure with these wonderful characters. The love triangle in this story goes beyond anything I could have ever imagined.
I admit that I was rather confused the first time I read this story and the first part was kind of annoying, until she runs away and joins the humans and then things get really exciting and crazy and I loved it. The second time through the first part made more sense and I loved it even more.
I loved the characters especially the men Jared and Ian are both wonderful in their own way. They both make mistakes which makes them real. Melanie and Wanda and very different in turn and the way it ended was so amazing.
I never saw that coming when I first read it and it was even more amazing as I read it again and again. Such a great story!
I highly recommend it to anyone who loves SciFi, romance, action and adventure because this story has it all.
Lirbo this book a chance. Stephanie Meyer really did a great job on this one. The characters are compelling and you like almost all of them.
Meyer’s writing has really improved over the course of her career and I feel like this book really showed what she could do better than anything else she’s written. The beginning of the book is a little slow, which is the reason for 4 stars instead of meysr.
It’s all important and I would never suggest to skip it but get through the first hundred pages. When the story changes you’ll know it when it happensyou won’t be able to put this one down. I was set to be disappointed by this one in the beginning but it’s one of my favorites now.
