uh oh, I seem to be the only one who thinks this.... I liked Twilight because it was an over the top romance saga with a really unusual twist. So in comparison to other well known romance authors (like Nicholas Sparks for example) the science fiction aspect was exciting. But The Host was more of a sci-fi book with a little romance thrown in. So in comparison to authors like Dean Koontzs it was very weak. I did enjoy Stephenie's way of exploring utopia vs individuality. It reminded me a lot of Anthem by Ayn Rand (which is a book everyone should read!!!)
So basically, they were both good stories, but Iike the Twilight Saga much better.
the host is better... waaay better, i love twilight but the host is more complex in the way that the charaters are developed, their feelings are more realistic than in twilight and the story is much more intense... i hope to see a movie, i think it will be amazing!!!
The Host actually teaches you things, like to appreciate your body. And Stephenie makes you feel for those characters, like what the others are saying, it has more complex characters. The Twilight Saga is just reading for fun if you understand what i mean. The Host is amazing and it's one of her best works.
