The Host

Earth has been colonized by the Souls, an alien race that wipes out the minds of humans and turns their bodies into hosts for interstellar travelers. Most of mankind has been eradicated, but some, like Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) and her family, have survived and are hiding. Melanie is captured by a Seeker and has a Soul named Wanderer implanted in her body, but she refuses to relinquish control. When Wanderer betrays her people to save Melanie, the Seeker sets out in relentless pursuit.

“The Host” is based on a Stephenie Meyer novel, but don’t think of it that way. Meyer is the author of the “Twilight” saga, but “The Host” was adapted and directed by Andrew Niccol, who wrote “The Truman Show” and has written and directed a number of odd and interesting sci-fi fantasies, including “In Time,” “S1m0ne” and “Gattaca.” “The Host” feels a lot like a Niccol movie and nothing like “Twilight,” despite a story involving another impossible teenage romance.

A good twist on planatary takover.

All the alien envasion movies in the past have been about exterminating the human race. It was really nice to see a peaceful alien take over, exterminating war, disease and hunger. What a concept. There was a little bit of violence but not a whole lot.

I liked it. I'm looking forward to the next book.
