Publisher's Summary

The Host: A Novel: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience! *

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The Earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a new fans to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

One of my favorite books come alive!

I've read this book many times I have decided to get an audible version to listen to while working. I wasn't sure about the background music at first but I'm glad I got this version. It makes the scenes come even more to life. Thank you!

Audiobook reader sold this performance!

Overall, always been a huge fan of Stephanie Meyer's books, I've read this book before and loved it then. I feel like the real success in this audiobook though was from the narrator, Kate Reading. I loved how invested she got into the character voices and really found she was good at it. It seems like lately when I listen to a book with a female protagonist, the narrators just dont get into it. They tend to be bland and dont even try on the Male voices. On the contrary this narrator just blew me away; just loved it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for some scifi romance.

Love this book!

Such a great story. I tend to listen to this or re-read it every few years. I love the concept, the dilemmas, the story line. . . a lot to think about.

At first I really didn't like the music in this performance but it grew on me and I ended up being glad I bought the version with background music. it was well done.

Loved it

My son has been reading this book and I wanted to know what kind of books he was into. I loved the story line and the characters.
