4 stars. As you can see, The Host is a long-ass book that shows the adventure of Wanderer (Wanda), the alien implanted in Melanie Stryder, as she slowly shifts her alliances.
Here was my main problem with this book: Wanda was a bit too self-sacrificing. I mean, risk your life multiple times sacrificing. But other than that, this book was engaging and I liked all the characters well enough; certainly not to fall in love with them, but I liked learning their stories.
By Stephenie Meyer, The Host is exceptionally better than Twilight. Because, I think, we all can't deny that SM has some mad storytelling skills.
