The Host: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stephenie Meyer

Narrated By: Kate Reading

Date: May 2008

Duration: 23 hours 3 minutes


Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading 'soul' who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves -- Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

    i didn't think I'd enjoy this as much as i did, Stephanie Meyer really knows how to make you feel for her characters and this book is one of the best examples out there. Add to that the captivating voice acting of Kate Reading and this book is more than worth a listen, this one i have saved to my phone!

  • Brittany Sorrell

    This is one of my favorite books. I love the characters, the conflicts, and how much they grow and change through out the book. The plot takes a little while to set so don't give up! Once you get a few chapters in you won't be able to stop listening!
