host Chapter Fifty Five
So I have to wonder, just a bit, what’s really going to happen to Eve. I mean, Otis isn’t likely to let her die off, not really. I’ve got a feeling all those allusions to ‘motherhood’ at the beginning mean … Continue reading

Host Chapter Fifty Four
There is one thing I like about Otis. Okay, let me rephrase that. There is one trait which is going to provide me with a whole lot of amusement in the near future, her lack of creativity. See, Host and … Continue reading
Host Chapter Fifty Three
I was reading about an interview with Otis where she said she already had titles picked out for sequels to this crap. They would be called ‘Soul’ and ‘The Seeker’. That’s another mark of an amateur writer, one who picks … Continue reading

Host Chapter Fifty Two
So I know that the aliens are supposed to be trusting and stupid for it. That’s partly how I know that Otis’s cliché aliens come from sources such as SyFy. Because if there’s one thing bad TV and movies have … Continue reading

Host Chapter Fifty One
I’m starting to wonder what will happen to all the humans when the bugs are pulled out. Being as Jackie Otis will probably keep her memories of her time possessed will the rest? Take the main ‘seeker’, because picking names … Continue reading

Host Chapter Forty Nine
I love how Otis does such a good job of making us care about each character. That way, it’s so much more poignant when one of them dies. It’s really one of the few skills Otis seems to have mastered … Continue reading

Host Chapter Forty Eight
I’m constantly amused by Otis’s attempt to make us worry. It reminds me of comic books and how they always seem to try and end on a cliffhanger. Oh no, it seems Eve is dangling over a vat of acid … Continue reading

Host Chapter Forty Seven
Today’s question, side effects. I know that Otis likes to paint the aliens as the masters of medicine. Being as that features rather heavily in one of this book’s ‘climaxes’ I’d say it’s all she could think of so she … Continue reading

Host Chapter Forty Six
You know what would be an awesome way to end this book? Have it turn out to be a hysterical episode, not in the old fashioned sense mind you, of Jackie Otis. She could be suffering from Delusional Parasitosis and … Continue reading
