^^ There probably would be. Do you think the host will ever be made into a movie?
I think that would be really good, and they could have a little added sequelly bit at the end or something.

I don't know if The Host will ever be made into a movie or not.

There's the obvious problem of having 2 voices inside one head. I guess maybe they could just make Melanie's voice an echoey voice-over or something. But then there's the thing about them living in pitch blackness 90% of the time. They'd have to find a way around that. Maybe keep them all in the crop room or hang lanterns all over the place... or pretend that every room had holes in the ceiling or mirrors on the roof.

I dont' know if the Host would ever be made into a movie...although I loved it, I know quite a few people who had a really hard time getting into it...so I dunno if sales for the book were big enough to inspire anyone to make it into a movie, plus, like Black said, there are some difficulties that are obvious from right off the bat that might turn a lot of people off from even trying to make the book into a movie.

I would love to read a sequel to the Host. However, being a total sucker for happy endings, I don't like the idea of characters I liked dying... But I suppose I would survive regardless :D It would be really interesting to see how she developed the characters further, etc... She does sequels well, in my opinion :)

It would make a freaky, weird movie!

You do realize that everybody you're reading about is going to die eventually, right? lol

Yes, I realize that... which is why I said I'd survive ;)

when it comes to the Host I would be okay if there weren't any sequels. I think they place it ended is an okay place & doesn't really feel unfinished. but if she ever did right sequels I'd probably read them. I just hope I didn't have as hard a time getting into any sequels like I did this one. I really have no idea where the story would/could go (plus it's been about 4 months since I read it & can't remember much.)

With a book like The Host, I would actually be okay if there weren't any sequels because the book did end at a good place, you know? I would defintely love SM to write a sequel to it, but I wouldn't be that disappointed if she didn't. I would actually really like to see where she could take us in another book, but like I said, it wouldn't be that big of a dissapointment if she decided not to write one.

I want to know that everyone's going to have babies so there needs to be a sequel.

I hope there is a sequel. The title The Soul is pretty obvious, I guess. But, The Seeker of what?
