Meyer did it again for me. She captivated my attention by twisting the concept of what an "alien" is supposed to be -- three fingered, controlling us with their minds and probing us at every opportune occasion -- Wanderer is nothing of the sort. She doesn't want to control her host or hurt her in any way, even if it means putting them both at great risk.
The Host is definitely more character base than the cover lets on, as for the most part, the characters are secluded in a cave. The perfect setting for romance and confrontation.
Love is stronger than fear. So dive in, don't be afraid of the length.
The Host DVD Release is
scheduled for July 9th 2013
