We have a couple of copies of the paperback version of The Host to give away courtesy of Little Brown. This latest version has a bonus chapter that “is something Stephenie wrote when she was working with the film producers – it was a scene that Stephenie always had in her head, but it couldn’t appear in the book because her narrator was unconscious at the time. The “omitted” chapter would, chronology-wise, fall in between Chapter 58 and 59 of The Host.”
What’s even better is that we have it to giveaway a few days early from it’s April 23rd release.
According to the Little Brown press release:
With a 650,000 announced first print run, the paperback edition will feature a special Reading Group Guide that includes a new, never-before-published “bonus chapter,” an interview with Stephenie Meyer, discussion topics and questions, and the author’s annotated playlist.
THE HOST debuted at #1 on The New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list and remained there for more than a year. Meyer’s first adult novel was not only a huge commercial success, with more than 2 million copies sold, it also brought a whole new audience of readers to Stephenie Meyer. Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST, appeals to rabid Twilight Saga fans and readers of classic literary suspense alike.
Movie rights to THE HOST have been optioned by Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz, the team that produced the film of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Andrew Niccol of Gattaca and The Truman Show will write the script and direct.
