    The heard about this series a while back only because it has the same author as the Twilight books. The main character is going to be played by that creepy little girl from Atonement. I wonder how well it will do?

    ^ That's where you know Saorise from? Not "The Lovely Bones"? Anyways I kind of surprised they're adapting this. I kind of dismissed "The Host" as being of no substance or popularity.

    Oh so this isn't a U.S. remake of the Korean monster movie?

    Never saw The Lovely Bones. :shrug:

    I'm guessing they are making The Host into a movie because of how big the Twilight movies are.

    ^ Yeah i guess they're trying to find something to succeed Twilight once it ends. The thing is they're assuming people will have read this book lol.

    As much as I despise the very existence of Twilight, a (female) friend persuaded me to read The Host and I actually found myself really enjoying it. It's not too overly romantic (although there's certainly a few gag-worthy moments) but it's fairly good drama with some interesting concepts. I love Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Niccol so I'm looking forward to this adaptation, just as long as they don't try to gear too hard towards Twilight fans.

    I'm probably the only person on Earth who thinks of Saorise as the girl from "Death Defying Acts."

    Sigh.

    I haven't read The Host or seen any of Saoirse Ronan's films, but I am interested that the screenwriter is Niccol, who was the screenwriter of Gattaca and The Truman Show.

    I thought The Host was pretty good, and I like Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Niccol, so I am optimistic.
