The Host: 10 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie
Wanderer is given no choice from the seekers about leaving Melanie’s body so that she can be executed. This amps up the dramatics of the host species and instills in Wanderer the desire to escape and not see her human body and the mind still occupying it become destroyed. Instead of leaving to get a consultation, as happens in the novel, she must escape the clutches of her own species.
The Seeker begins catching on to Wanderer’s whereabouts nearly immediately. Since the seeker disappears for huge chunks of Meyer’s book, this actually helps the action propel forward and helps the Seeker and her seeking become a very real threat.
