I went to see The Host last night. This is a movie based on the book of the same title from author Stephanie Meyer, of Twilight fame.
I had read the book prior to this, a few times (it’s a good book!!) And I am very happy to report that this movie is a near perfect representation of the book. From the actors to the settings to the general tone.
As a fan of Twilight and Stephanie Meyer (hate me if you must) I was nervous going in, because the first Twilight was a big ole let down. But this movie holds up!!
And of course… Meyer loves her love triangles. Though in The Host, it’s more of a misshapen love square.
Just go see it. If you enjoy alien invasion, action, and a dystopian existence… you’ll like it.
