So I read all day and into last night and I finished the host and...it was FANTASTIC! I really, really liked it! It was unlike any books I have read. The story narrator/heroine is kind of the bad guy (she's a body snatching alien). But she is also a really great character so you find yourself rooting for her and against her at the same time. I just kept thinking, what in the world is going to happen? and that made it a real page turner. Some really good romance and serious suspense. So so so good. A must read!
