The Host Review: Stephenie Meyer's Next Chapter

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When I spoke with Stephenie Meyer with the release of her book The Host in 2008, she expressed her concern with how it could ever be made into a movie. The storyline is so cerebral in the way that two of the main characters share the same body. Much of their conversation is in their head.

I love the book and the movie was amazing :)

I think the movie was poorly done. I'm not convinced that the book CAN'T be turned into a good movie, however, but the focus was just in the wrong place. They needed to focus alot more on backstory, plot, and believability in timelines than on make out scenes and poignant looks to an understated soundtrack. Above all, they really did not showcase the goodness of the main character nearly as much as should have been, which made the whole movie less compelling.
