In reading The Host I have come to make a couple of observations about Stephenie Meyer’s stories. You can make your own conclusions.

  1. Her main characters have a thing for eyes.
  2. Seventeen-year-old girl wants to have sex with a hundred-year-old vampire. Seventeen-year-old girl wants to have sex with a twenty-six-year-old man. Sixteen-year-old alien lies about being “legal” in order to have sex with a twenty-years-old-plus man.
  3. Her main characters are head-over-heels in love with a man who fundamentally wants to kill them.
  4. Liar, liar, pants on fire! Her main characters cannot tell a lie.
