I loved this book from beginning to end! I was captived by the charcters and story line. What a wonderful place for Stephanie Meyer to take us and make it appear so real. Full of love, suspence, tragedy and beauty it wil keep you turning the pages until the end and then you will long for more. I have bought several books gor my family and friends for Christmas and look forward to sitting at the Movies with them in March to watch it on the big screen. I can only hope tha Stephanie will put out a second Host book.
