It's Just My Opinion

The Host: A Novel The Host: A Novel by Stephenie Meyer


My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am not impressed with Stephanie Meyers. I read Twilight, and thought the same thing about her writing style.



I put this book down twice after I started reading it to read two other books, which I finished, but I've wanted to read The Host since it came out, so I went back to it. Not to mention I voted to read it for Reader's Anonymous. It took 200 or more pages to get into it, and it was LONG!



This book was unique in some ways, predictable in others, imaginative in many ways. Overall, I would rate it good. Certainly not one of my favorites, though.

Thanks for the review.
I am reading "The deep end of the ocean" at the moment and it is a hard book to get into. I have seen the movie so I know it is good but its a slow movingbook. lol

This has been sitting on my nightstand since its release. I find all sorts of other books to read before it. I need to just buckle down and start reading.

I'm not impressed either. Every girl and woman I know that read Twilight loved it. I thought I was the only one who didn't like it and I was not impressed with her writing.

Diana, that's exactly how I felt after reading Twilight. I did not go any further in the trilogy.

Didn't you write about Twilight not too long ago? About how it wasn't really "your thing"?

I just finished Stephen King's Lisey's Story.. which I got for Christmas after asking for it forever. I was halfway through the darn thing and I told Mike I could put it down and not care if I ever finished it. It just didn't grab me.

Then.. a few nights later it DID grab me and I read and read until the end.

Stephen King seems to be slipping after all these years. Maybe he's running out of ideas?
