In the newest film The Host adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name the audience is once again presented with the story of a seeming impossible choice between characters Melanie, Wanda, Ian and Jared. Human Melanie and Jared are in love while alien Wanda, being hosted in Melanie’s body, has a budding relationship with Ian. The difficulty comes in choosing who gets to survive: Melanie or Wanda. As Wanda and Melanie become friends and sisters it becomes an excruciating choice where the love of someone will be sacrificed. In this story Stephenie Meyer once again manages to draw the audience in causing us to root for all these characters and feel the impossibility of a choice of love.
