Review: The Host

I found myself wishing I was reading the book again

I never thought I would ever read a Stephanie Meyer book but found myself doing just that while travelling about a year ago. The book gave me this image of a much heavier, angrier and more character driven story but after watching the first wave of previews I knew this film would be far from that. I suppose my imagining of the story was always going to be hard to beat. The film also managed to rush through and even miss some of the better parts of the book. Ultimately I am unhappy with the lazy interpretation of what was a very good read.
