The Host

by Stephenie Meyer

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(2) Sea Level

Reading The Host is like devouring a super-size bag of Cheetos. It may seem big at a glance, but once you get started, you can't stop. Stephenie Meyer described The Host as "a science-fiction story for people who don't like science fiction" (source). You don't have to worry about headache-inducing quantum physics, dizzying time travel, or tongue-twisting alien languages. Like Wanda all cozy up in Melanie's brain, you can open up The Host and feel right at home.
