Don't walk...RUN to your local library (or the library's website) and place this book on hold NOW!
Yes. I enjoyed it that much. I couldn't wait to get home from work so I could read more. That hasn't happened in some time!
In my humble (but of course, all important - ha ) opinion, this book rocks. Meyer surpasses the writing skills showcased in the Twilight books in this "sci-fi lite" book. While there are aliens, they just don't seem like, well, aliens. It's a great story and well told.
Though, Meyer seems to have a thing for the whole "two men in love with one woman" storyline. At least in The Host, there are actually two women...they just share a body.
So...just do it. Read this book. Now. Or as soon as you can get a copy.
