Stephenie Meyer's Alien Love Story Print Email

After her wildly popular Twilight series had teen fans crowding bookstores and theaters, Stephenie Meyer tried her hand at writing for adults with The Host, first published in 2008.  Now The Host, a sci-fi thriller featuring a love triangle with only two humans involved (it's complicated), comes to theaters on March 29th in a film adaptation written and directed by Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show).  This story is vampire-free but it does have aliens--"souls" who have taken over Earth and captured humans to serve as host bodies for their occupation.  If you haven't read this one yet, you've got time to check out all the action--romantic and otherwise--before the movie opens on the big screen in a little more than a month.
