Hello everybody, yesterday I began reading another book which will probably be an addition to my already long list of best underrated Sci Fi books. The Host, by Stephanie Meyer.
The story follows Wanderer, an alien soul that is inserted into a human body. But the girl who used to inhabit the body, Melanie, refuses to fade away, and so they fight for control.
The story is told in the first person, in the past when it narrates Wanderer’s storyline and in the present when it narrates Melanie’s memories.
I think the concept of this book is interesting to say the least. I always love it when a story is told from the “baddie’s” perspective. The writing style is engaging and absolutely magnificent. I’m so hooked with this novel and I cannot wait to see what’s in store!
I believe that this novel, like many other best underrated Sci Fi books, has not received the praise it deserves. I just came across with it by accident, and was shocked to see it was written by the author of Twilight. I don’t understand why this novel hasn’t gotten as much attention as the paranormal series, since, so far as I’ve read, it’s a work of art. Sadly this is the case many science fiction authors face, as, for some reason, their novels sometimes tend to be underrated.
However, I’ve made a firm purpose to give this books the attention they deserve here on my blog and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on my progress with this one! Expect a review coming out soon 😉
Finally, just a quick reminder that my book, Beyond Black Tears 1, is available on amazon in kindle, paperback and hardback version. Be sure to check it out!
