    IAN~ “Good or Bad?” he demanded.
    WANDERER~ “Good.”
    IAN~ “That’s what I thought.” And his voice was a growl.
    Chapter 56:Welded…..page 576

    I think the entire Chapter 56: Welded is full of great quotes.

  2. TwilightGirl says:

    ummmm, i have a question and I think this is a good place to get it answered. is the Host a good book? I just curious ‘cuz I’m a HUGE Twilight fan, but it talks about aliens!!! This is what I thought of Twilight before I read it… but I wanted to see what people thought about it first…. On ascale of 1 to 1- (10 being the best) what would u rate it? THANK YOU!!!!!!!

  3. Brandi says:

    I rate it a 10! It is fantastic, its SM’s writing style just a differant character and story. BUT SOO GREAT! you should read it!

  4. Anne says:

    Ian: “Her name is Wanda, not it. You will not touch her. Any mark you leave on her, I will double on your worthless hide”

    page 291 Chapter 29

  5. Heather D says:

    Yes, The Host is amazing. And i’m not just saying that because I’m a Twilgiht fan. The Host is one of my favorite books. The story is wonderful and the characters are fantastic. It starts off slow, but stick with it, because it’s worth it.

  6. Robby says:

    To be honest, I think in various ways..The Host is better than Twilight :D

    P.S. I will definitely come back to this page to find my favourite quotes!

    • Robby says:

      Robby, The Host is definitely better than Twilight. I thought that anything could be better than Tw, but Steph impressed. Again.:)

      P.S.: Im sorry for my English. If there are some mistakes, please, forgive me. Im not from Englishspeaking country.

  7. Robby says:

    P.S. Heather, THAT is an awesome one…he makes me swooon~ that Ian XD

  8. Andy says:

    “You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me.” (Ian – chapter 56: Welded

    [totally agree with Heather D – that chapter is full of amazing quotes!]).

  9. Kasha says:

    Just an observation (and this is NOT at all to say I don’t like The Host, because I do)… but if this site is called Twilight Series Theories, why exactly are we talking about The Host? And if we’re going to discuss ALL Stephanie Meyers’ books, then shouldn’t this be called something else? Again, I mean no offense, I’m a big fan of ALL her work… but The host ISN’T a Twilight book- that’s all I’m saying…

  10. chelseaaa says:

    “I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.” Ian, page 605, chapter 59 (remembered)

    I always go “awwww” whenever I read that.

  11. Shalimar says:

    Jamie: “Ian didn’t come. He just sat here with you — he said he didn’t care what you looked like. He wouldn’t let anyone else put a finger on your tank at all, not even me or Mel. But Doc let me watch this time. It was way cool, Wanda. I don’t know why you wouldn’t let me watch before. They wouldn’t let me help, though. Ian wouldn’t let anyone touch you but him.” pg605 (I love the whole monologue by Jamie on this page)

    Ian: “I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.” pg605 (love this too!)

  12. Heather D says:

    Kasha: We like “The Host” and we WANT to talk about it. SO why not have it on this site, that way we don’t have to navigate to other pages. It’s Stephenie Meyer’s work and obviously this site was made before “The Host” came out. The Twilight books are done for now and yeah we have the movies, but sometimes we just want to discuess other books with the friends we’ve made here. I’m not trying to be rude, but what’s the big deal, who cares? You don’t have to go to this page, if you don’t want to.

  13. IHEARTSETH says:

    I totally agree, Heather D (dude! that rhymed!) Anyway, I like it when Kyle was all “I’m not sorry for trying to kill you. But just to let you know, I’m not going to try again.”

  14. Lara C says:

    ”It’s not the face, but but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You (itallics) are beautiful”

    Ian to Wanda.
    Chapter: Touched
    Page: 388

    Absolute favourite quote from The Host! I really didn’t expect to like it, but it was totally unreal. I really hope there’s a sequel!

  15. Kasha says:

    Wow- so even this is a discussion forum, people aren’t allowed to have opposing opinions? Interesting- you all don’t seem to have an issue when Kassie and Kallie don’t agree (i.e. Jacob) LOL I’ll be sure to try and not offend anyone with my opinion again

    Oh, and as far as the whole “don’t come to the site if you don’t like it”- please tell me where I said I didn’t like it? Just like you don’t feel the desire to navigate to other sites to talk about what you want, I don’t see the point in having a site that is supposed to be dedicated to Twilight where you expand it to include all the author’s works… again, it was an opinion, and you didn’t have to get rude about it… but hey, knock yourself out! lol

  16. PewterWolf says:

    Sequel – am TOTALLY in favor of that!

    “Ian’s right. You’re too self-sacrificing. You don’t have any limits. You need limits, Wanda!” (melanie – chapter 50: Sacrified)

    (Totally forgot the Ian “I held you in my hand” quote. Awesome line!)

  17. Heather D says:

    I missed the part where i was being rude?

  18. Kasha says:

    And I missed the part where I wasn’t allowed to have an opposing opinion

  19. Twilight Geek Sam says:

    pg. 615
    “Jared is my past, another life. You are my present.”
    he was quiet for a moment. when he spoke again, his voice was rough with emotio. “and your future, if you want that.”
    “yes, please”

  20. Twilight Geek Sam says:

    This is so great. i love the Host, i think it is possibly better than Twilight, ohhh did i just say that, yea i did lol

  21. Twilight _ Obsessee[lol] says:

    Ian coaxedmy face my face up until i looked him in the eyes, my cheeks flushing darker.
    ‘ Then you will stay’
    He kissed me, right in front of every one, but i forgot the audience quickly. This was easy & right, no division, no confusion,no objection, just Ian & me, the molten rock moving through this new body, melding it into the pact.
    ‘ I will stay” I agreed
    And my tenth life began.
    [Remembered – page 606]

    I LOVE THIS BOOK, no one hit me, but it’s soo much better than twilight & sorry again but Catherine Hardwicke ruined twilight!
    the book is so much better than the movie now thanks to her oh & i almost forgot! TeamJasper & Alice !

    WOOP! WOOP!
    [lol]

    • HoLlY mArIe :) says:

      I agree!! she did. AND THE HOST IS A MILLION TIMES BETTER!
      I think the story is better.
      Ian is WAY cooler than Edward! (he didn’t leave)

  22. Twilight _ Obsessee[lol] says:

    Ps. Team Edward
    jacob doesn’t sparkle

    Team Edward
    I’d rather freeze than have a personal space heater

    Team Edward
    I’d rather share a bed then a kennel

    Team Edward
    I want a man not a pet

    Team Edward
    He doesn’t imprint on peoples babies

    Team vampires
    love bites

    i kissed a vampire & i liked it
    Forget princess i want to be a space heater

  23. Andy says:

    I have a few more quotes to add. Hope that okay…

    “It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what they say. It’s not how you look like in that body, it’s what you do with it. You are beautiful.” (Ian – page 388)

    “It changed me, not here.” (page 573)

    “Of all the nerve! You tell him I said nochance in hell! I do not like this man!” (Melanie – page 386)

    “And then, flat and hard from right behind us, Ian’s voice roke the quiet like the crack of a whip. ‘What?'” (Page 567)

    “The beginning would feel likethe end. I’d been warned.” (psge 597)

  24. Andy says:

    “Humans were deceitful, treacherous creatures.” (Chapter 23: “Confessed” – page 223)

    “Am I the frog or the water?” & “Why are you my friend, Jeb?”(Chapter 24: “Tolerated” – page 239)

    Jared: “Jealous, O’Shea?”
    Ian: “Actually… I am.” (Chapter 37: “Wanted” – page 383.)

    Ian: “Not to sound overly arrogant, but to be perfectly honest, Jared, were I so inclined, I think I could do better.” (Chapter 47: “Employed” – page 481.)

    “It wasn’t black at all – it was blue. Warm, vibrant, brilliant blue… I floated into it with no fear at all.” (Chapter 58: “Finished” – page 592.)

  25. Andy says:

    Jared: “You just want to keep Wando at Melanie’s expense – nothing else matters to you.”
    Ian: “And you want to keep Melanie at Wanda’s expense – nothing else matters to you!”
    (Chapter 57 – “Completed”)

    “You are the noblest, purest creature I’ve ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you,” he [Doc] whispered.
    These were his words over my grave, my epitaph, and I was glad that I got to hear them.
    (Chapter 58 – “Finished”)

    Ian: “Good or bad?”
    Melanie: Bad! Bad, bad!
    (Chapter 38: “Touched”)

  26. Andy says:

    Wanda: “Why now? Why you? You’re not of my species. How can you be my partner?” (Chapter 56: Welded)

    (The more I think of that line, the more I think that there’s a deeper meaning to it.)

  27. Emily says:

    Ian’ “You know whats really twisted?’
    Jared, “What?”
    Ian, “I feel guilty-guilty as hell-watching her flinch away from us. Seeing the black marks on her neck.”
    Jared,” You can’t let it get to you like that.” It’s not human. Don’t forget that.
    Ian,” Just because she isn’t human, do you think that she doesn’t feel pain? “That she doesn’t feel like a girl who’s been beaten-beaten by us?

    • Simone' says:

      Hey, do you know what page that quote is from:
      Ian’ “You know whats really twisted?’
      Jared, “What?”
      Ian, “I feel guilty-guilty as hell-watching her flinch away from us. Seeing the black marks on her neck.”
      Jared,” You can’t let it get to you like that.” It’s not human. Don’t forget that.
      Ian,” Just because she isn’t human, do you think that she doesn’t feel pain? “That she doesn’t feel like a girl who’s been beaten-beaten by us?

  28. Emily says:

    Ian met his gaze. “Okay.” He leaned over me and his luminous eyes held mine. “I’ll be back soon. Don’t be afraid.”
    “I’m not.”
    He ducked in and touched his lips to my forehead.

  29. Emily says:

    Wanda 2 Ian
    “Cheetos!” I cried. “Really? For me?” – “I’ve been dreaming about this.” I sighed.
    …”Thank you. For more than the Cheetos, you know. For so much.”
    Ian, “You’re more than welcome, Wanda.”

  30. Emily says:

    Wanda 2 Doc
    “Don’t you realize what I’m giving you?” I whispered.
    Finally, comprehension slammed home in his expression.

  31. Emily says:

    “You deserve a life, too, Wanda. You deserve to stay.”
    “But I love her, Ian.”
    He closed his eyes, and his pale lips went dead white.
    “But I love you,” he whispered. Doesn’t that matter?”
    …”Is it so unbearable to have me love you?”
    “No, Ian!”

  32. ms jasper hale says:

  33. Linzie Crystal says:

    the quotes for ian jared and mel kept givin me goosebumps haha i just love it and its so romantic the saying “we’re in two diferent worlds” takes up a whole new meaning haha

  34. NEXtEL says:

    ”It’s not the face, but but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You are beautiful.”

    Ian to Wanda, pg. 388

    acctualy that quote is on pg 390 not pg 388

  35. Alexis says:

    under Ian where it says It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it.

    that should be page 390 not 388.

  36. host fan says:

    the host is the BEST BOOK EVER. the twilight saga is, of coarse, the best series.but just recently reading the host, i must say that it is a completely different experience. one word: WOW. all hail Stephenie Meyer!!! she is a queen.

    i love: You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me
    and
    I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you are so beautiful.
    we love <3 Ian!!!!

    the best cast would be: Ian O’shea= Ian Somerhalder. Jared Howe= Jensen Ackles. Melanie Stryder= Sophia Bush. Wanderer= Elisabeth Harnois. The seeker= Charlize Theron (with black hair!!

  37. mally says:

    On Stephanie Meyer’s site it said there is going to be a Host movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)))

  38. I LOVE IAN OSHEA! gosh. i have read it i think a week ago for just three days. i thought it’s boring because of the first chapters but as long as i’m reading the host it’s getting hotter. i love stephenie, she got a pure talent. i think i like all the lines on the part were wanda decided to leave melanie’s body. but i just don’t get the part were, melanie is holding ians arm like she haven’t realize she’s not wanda anymore and when wanda sees herself still staring at jared and jared staring back and ian staring and talking to melanie as if she is still wanda. oww man! i love it. :] yeah. i think THE HOSt is better than Twilight saga. but i’m a fan too. [team Jacob. rawwr]

  39. lindsey says:

  42. Valeria says:

    Hello Dear Stephenie Meyer.Write you from distant Russia, well can be not quite such distant.) Beforehand I beg pardon for my can be not quite well-knit English.Here you will not answer my questions probably, but on those sites which you presented I was not able to understand how to mail you a letter.Therefore and thought to write here.I will be thankful you if you will read even.Questions will be to you, but before I would like to express you the gratitude for that you created.To say Thank you for that in a the same day when sleep (as you told) dreamed you about the pair of falling in love sittings on to the meadow: fellow-vampire and girl outage death you did not cast aside this sleep as most usual and did not forget about him as about any other sleep and began to develop a coming in sleep idea, idea, what was overmaster millions of hearts all over the world.You created the world, and he interesting that in him am and the known facts about vampires and world supernatural (as far as they can be named facts), and cardinal differences. All of it attracts, zainteresovyvaet and carries away! I watched movie before, than read books, but it in any way did not prevent me to enjoy reading.Vice versa, combination of appearances from a film and detailer, complete literary work – created the unusual world under the name «Twilights»! And now my questions: Saw in free access in the internet a book ” after 100 years ” allegedly showing by itself continuation of your saga.Say it has what that attitude toward you? and that do you think on this occasion? Is it necessary to expect from you further development of events of saga after your fifth book a “Sun of midnight”?

    With love to you and to your work
    Your reader Valeria

  43. mrs o'shea says:

    PS sorry about my mixed up name. i LOVE ian but he’s not a vampire so its kinda sad. i thought hell… why not have both!

  46. Daisy says:

    Ian is just so… ugh.
