Review: The Host

The Host
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not even my truehearted love for Edward can make me love this book. The Host – obviously I picked it up for Stephenie Meyer – turned out to be a tedious read. I feel the author should have cut short the book a lot. It would have made the book more enjoyable. At one point, the author uses the expression ‘like boiling the frog’ in one sentence and goes on to explain what it means in the next. This explains exactly why and how the length sucked out all the fun from the book.
What I liked about the book is the Subject and the novelty of it. I went ahead and watched the movie to see how the different worlds look like, but sadly director decided not to show any. I would go with a 3 for this and I am not signing up for the next installment if it is gonna be as lengthy as this.
