My girlfriend downloaded this, and I was out of books, so I listened to it. It was engaging, had a unique plot, suspenseful moments and good character development.
When I finish a book, and don't have another in mind, I look up other books by the authors of books I found good, as I'm sure everyone does. I was shocked, and extremely horrified, when I saw the list of books this author had written. Thankfully I found this out after I listened to The Host, since I once tried to watch the movie based on the series that must not be named, and I had to gouge my eyes out, which is why I have to listen to audiobooks now. My only complaint is that was a touch mushy for my taste at times, but considering Stephenie Meyers' previous titles, not nearly as bad as it could be.
This book was not what I expected after reading her other material. But it was a great take on the paranormal. It was worth listening too. :)
The reader was so dramatic. I couldn't get passed her voice so I couldn't finish it.
yes just never with this reader
I am enjoying both. I bought this on the Daily Deal forx1.99 and got the Audio from Audible for less than $4. Before this was so recently available I listened to the book I couldn't put down using my E-ink Kindle Keypad using "text to speech" I love this Audible awhyspersync option only when it's affordable. I would NEVER purchase the book and the audio if they were $8 for the book and. Over$10 for the Audio to waste my $15 monthly Audible credit.So thanks for getting together and making my raeding affordable and more enjoyable. Your company gets some $ I can afford..even if it's not what you'd normally charge. Some $ is better than no $ so I bet you are making a lot more money now than a year ago.
It reminds me of Body Snatchers (alien parasites) AND District 9 (predjudice against intelligent peacefully aliens.
Great descriptions of the mind talk/ memories and sharing between Wanderer and Melany.
I smiled often and thoroughly enjoyed it. It'd. Make a great movie.
Its much better than the atwilight Series.
I didn't read the print version
Uncle jeb, he was firm, yet fair
I don't know
The story is creative, intriguing, intense in some parts, and very well written. I love the authors ability to create memorable characters that you care about. The unbreakable bond of family love is an over-arching theme throughout the book. I loved it and highly recommend both the read and listen!
I had read this book a long while back, and with the movie coming out soon I wanted to revisit it. The audiobook seemed like a good option. I'm rather particular about narrators. I recently purchased an audiobook and began listening to it and the narrator was so awful I abandoned ship and picked up the actual book (because I was afraid I would forever hate the book if I had to keep listening to it).
This narrator has a lot of different characters to portray and she does a great job of making the voices distinctive without being over the top. Well done. This made my "reread" of the book very enjoyable.
It was better than the twilight series all combined
when the meet up with the others to find the have a soul as well
she was not boring
the book makes you look at how we as a society treat one another
she needs to be writing more books like this I loved it and cant wait for the movie
The reader was excellent. She was extremely easy to listen to and was able to capture each character very well.
The story was different that what you might expect, but kept me interested the whole time.
I liked all the characters, and how they affected each other. I liked how they evolved. It was very well done.
I cannot say, other than I really enjoyed her characterizations. She did not leave me feeling annoyed once, which is difficult to find in an audio book. It's the reader that makes or breaks it for me.
No, I did not have an extreme reaction to the book. I did find myself wanting to continue listening to the story, so it definitely kept me going.
The only thing I would suggest to Stephanie Meyer, is to make her characters a little less melodramatic. I say this loosely. It's something I noticed throughout the twilight series.
She doesn't give the listener credit. She drills it in our head that this is the end for this character. It's beginning to feel like the boy who cried wolf. Notice how many times in all her books how the heroine says how she knows she's going to die, or something like that.
Too self sacrificing, which is a complaint from other characters in the story.
wanda not being like every other soul and developing feelings for the humans
Ian because he changed the most throughout the story
no I didn't like her voice
when Jared realized that Melanie was still there with Wanda
