Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.
As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.
A race of non-corporeal, parasitic aliens who go from planet to planet looking for hosts have come to Earth and basically taken over the human race. It's believed that, once inside a body, all memories of the host human are gone. Some few free humans remain hidden from them, forming a resistance group. When an alien Seeker captures a girl named Melanie and puts a Wanderer in her body, she hopes to find out where the remaining humans are gathered, but Melanie, a strong fighter able to converse with the alien in her commandeered body, convinces the Wanderer to say nothing. Disappointed by the lack of progress (though suspecting an empathy for the human), the Seeker informs the Wanderer that she'll be removed and placed in a new host while she herself will enter Melanie. With human lives at risk, Melanie convinces Wanderer to run away and hide out with the humans, but finding them doesn't mean they'll allow an alien presence among them. Jared (Melanie's boyfriend) wants her dead, but Jeb... Written by

So before I went to see The Host I read the book and I loved it! I instantly fell in love with it and was excited to see the movie. However, before I went to see the movie I came onto IMDb and read a number of user reviews. I started to get nervous when I saw the amount of bad reviews. I was finally able to see the movie today and before entering the theater I cleared my mind of all the bad reviews I had read and the expectations I had for it. When the movie was over I decided to write this review as soon as I got home.
I loved the movie. I thought it was absolutely amazing. I think the adaptation from book to movie was very well done. It is definitely top 4 on my list of best book to movie adaptations(it is at the top of my list with movies such as Atonement and Lord of the Flies).
The acting was great and I loved the casting. I have always been a fan of Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger and I think they were both fantastic. Also I have admired Max Irons since I saw him in Red Riding Hood and thought he was great in this movie.
I would definitely recommend this movie. I walked out of the theater very happy and very impressed.
