As it says on the back of The Host: "Earth, it was fun while it lasted." Oh wait, that was a tagline to Armageddon. But it applies here as well. Both Armageddon and The Host have a few things in common: (1) There are things in outer space beyond our control. (2) You never know how much time on Earth you have. (3) And an obsession with processed foods. (Cheetos vs. Animal Crackers. Who wins?) When she's not munching on Cheetos, Wanda often ponders what it means to be human and to exist in this universe.
