The Host

by Stephenie Meyer The Host, A Novel 1 editionBook group read.  Stephanie Meyer is great at thinking up interesting conflicts.  She's also pretty good at working up to a climax.  But she is a master at the anti-climax.  Everything always works out so conveniently.  Don't bother getting worried that something might go wrong; it won't, not really.  Or if it does, it'll be fixed very soon.

I did like this better than the Twilight books (I couldn't make myself read the last one after the reviews).  There were a lot of interesting (or at least potentially difficult) questions raised.  Too bad the book didn't really do much with them.
