There were some girls who enjoyed the book, but many had a hard time even getting through it.
My biggest complaint was the fact that I didn't find it entertaining enough to qualify as "junk food" for the brain (which was my justification for the Twilight books). Without the entertainment factor, it was hard to read pointless descriptions of caves and heat and other worlds. The initial premise was an intriguing one with an alien taking over a human body and unable to quell the human spirit that exists therein. The struggle between these two people should have been central to the story, but I found the characters to be flat and frankly, much the same as characters we have met from her before. (Doc=Carlisle, Ian=Jacob/Edward, etc).
Oh well.. as my mom said "she can cry all the way to the bank." And I will still totally buy the next book in the Twilight series and go to the midnight showing of the Movie in December.
Thanks for hosting us, Lindsay! It was great and it was fun to have some new faces!
