I know I have not been on much lately but one of my favorite author, Stephenie Meyer, had a new book come out last Tuesday, May 6, and I have been reading it all of my free time. Which mean when Gwen and Gilbert are not sleeping I was reading and had no time to play on the computer.
Yesterday I finished with the book. I did have a little trouble getting into it but I think it had a little to do with I wanted more of a story about Bella and Edward, but that will be in August. The first few chapters were a little slow, but then it picked up the pace and I really got into the book. It was a real page turner. I went a couple of days/nights with little sleep. I swear I even dreamt about it, lol.
The book is about a girl, Melanie, and Wanderer, two women sharing a single body, who are forced to work together in order to save Jared, the fugitive man they both love, and Jamie, Mel's little brother. Our world has been taken over. The human bodies have become host for the invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. When Melanie, one of the few remaining wild humans is captured. Wanderer, a"soul", is given Melanie's body to occupy But Melanie refuses to give up possession of her mind.
No this is not another Invasion of the Body Snatchers, it is so much more then that! It is a deep and beautiful story. It focuses more on the relationships of the characters and the intriguing dilemma of two lives sharing one body. I really fell in love with the characters. I was disappointed when it was over, but I'm excited by the prospect of a sequel!
