Movie Review: The Host

Movie Title: The Host
Director: Andrew Niccol
Notable Stars:  Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, Chandler Canterbury

Ian: “You don’t feel bad at all. I’d have killed her.”
Jared: “It doesn’t matter. It’s not human.”
Ian: “So we stop acting human?”

Final Verdict: Wait until the movie shows for free on the TV. That way, if you feel the same way I do, you won’t lose money paying to watch this movie. It has to be the worst movie I’ve seen in a long while and definitely worse than any of the Twilight Saga.

Book Review: The Host

Book Title: The Host
Author: Stephanie Meyer

Body and soul. Two different things” The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Final Verdict: If you like romance with a bit of science fiction in the background then you will enjoy this book. If you’re like me, and prefer a lot of action, I’m not sure this book will be very satisfying.

Book Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, Stephanie Meyer

Book Title: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
Author: Stephanie Meyer

It was like talking to Diego had cleared my head. For the first time in three months, blood was not the main thing in there.” Bree, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephanie Meyer.

Final Verdict: I wouldn’t read this book. It will leave you frustrated and wishing that this story had been developed to its true potential. Instead, it re-hashes much of Eclipse without offering anything original.

Book Review: Breaking Dawn

Book Title: Breaking Dawn
Author: Stephanie Meyer

My life and his were twisted into a single strand. Cut one, and you cut both. If he were gone, I would not be able to live through that. If I were gone, he wouldn’t live through it, either.” Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer.

Final Verdict: If you’ve come this far, you may as well finish. You might want to skim the first two thirds of the book. I can sum them up with: the wedding, the honeymoon and the baby. That’s it.

Book Review: Eclipse

Book Title: Eclipse

He’s like a drug for you, Bella.” Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

Book Review: New Moon

Book Title: New Moon
Author: Stephanie Meyer

Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.” Bella, New Moon by Stephanie Meyer.

Final Verdict: If you have to read this book just try to detach yourself and don’t use Bella as a role model.
