When I began to read The Host, there were multiple times when I almost threw it aside for been a little bit tedious. It's great I decided to continue with my reading. Now is one of my favorite books.
Definitely, a beautiful book and what an incredible character is Wanderer. I really admire her willingness to give, to help and to love. It's amazing how she transforms herself and how her relationship with her host is transformed.
We could say their parasitic relationship was changed to a symbiotic relation the moment Melanie and Wanderer began to care for each other.
