Paper Dolls for Boys

It has been a while since I read The Host. Like you, I picked it up because I could not believe that the Twilight series was over.

Unlike you, I hated it at the beginning and then warmed to it. I think I am a sucker for the happy ending.

The thing I liked best about the book was getting a glimpse into this "underground" (both figuratively and literally) society that developed in response to the hosts. I love to see authors ideas of how these groups would survive, create a new blended culture, and govern themselves. I found that part of the book interesting.

I just finished today, so I was waiting to comment.

I too felt that the end was predictable. Not necessarily disappointing, but a little too neat for me. The ending was very much like a perfect little gift presented with a bow. I do like happy endings, but they just aren't that perfect all the time.

One thing that made me think was the fact that not everyone was able to stay present in their own bodies (Sunny/Jodi). I'd like to think I would be like Melanie and be strong enough to be present. It was just an interesting thought I had.
