** spoiler alert ** I read this book because I was curious at how Stephenie Meyer was going to evolve out of her Twilight fame. Would it be the same book with a different plot or the same characters with different names? Fortunately, The Host was a little different. Still extremely cheesy (even for my hopelessly romantic taste) but atleast it's not just about oggling after a guy. As many others have expressed before me, Mel/Wanda (the female lead) was actually likable. Lovable even. Unlike Twilight's Bella who I wanted to strangle at the first few pages of the first book. And that Ian and Jared are not perfect is nice too. I loved Ian more though, despite the fact that he tried to kill Wanda in the beginning which was understandable considering she invaded his planet and all that. I love the way he understands her and knows what to do for her to be happy even when Wanda herself doesn't know. Jared's character, I think is more human. Because of how he is, ruthless and vengeful when he sees Mel as a host. And then the confusion he feels to letting her go even when he didn't know there's a chance to get her back for real. Mercifully, this love triangle is not as biased as in the Twilight series. The Edward vs Jacob thing was unfair because we all knew Edward was going to win no matter what because Bella was just soooo in love with him. This time though, it was almost a fair match. I also enjoyed the plot, although it's not exactly perfectly set. I find myself narrowing my eyes at some lines and things or events here and there but enjoyable nevertheless. I was also grateful that Ian didn't have to suffer. I was really hoping Wanda gets caught out of her suicide attempt not for her, because the story would be so much more dramatic if she did die, but for Ian. It doesn't seem fair that Jared gets Mel and he gets nothing. I liked that the characters have more depth than they had in her Twilight series. This time, her characters had more serious stuff to weigh and ponder about. And they had more opportunities to understand who they really are inside and a lot of room to grow and be better. All in all it was a good book which I enjoyed. And if truth be told, it good me hooked emotionally (it got me laughing at some parts and crying near the end). So, I give it a 3.
