I'm always skeptical going into watch a movie after I've read the book. I don't think I've ever been to a movie that lived up to the novel. The Host is no different. Actually...it's boring...the movie not the book.
The book was a fantastic science fiction romance. *Spoiler Alert* But my favorite parts were the forays into the other worlds settled by the aliens. It really added the intrigue that the story needed to hold together. The movie didn't even touch on this. It didn't even go in to much about how the rebels were surviving. In short, it was just a lack luster weird romance. I'm glad I saw it at the Warren (Movie/Restaurant). A warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream served right at your seat makes everything better.
