When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

One of the most compelling writers of our time, Stephenie Meyer brings us a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the very essence of what it means to be human.

  This is set in an island where children are left by themselves after a plane accident. It is a story that shows the evolution of those children who from being civilized turn in a wild life existence where some listen only to their own interest.

This book scared me, or the better placed word here is disturbed me. It is told in such a way and described as to shock.

They tried to set a sort of flying earth on that machine , things went fine except one day some people went crazy for the trip was too long so they did a kind of rebellion and took the spatial machine for emergency and went back to earth while the rest of the people continued their tavel to the new planet.

This book shows how man even if trying to escape the place he destoyed
looking for another one for better life, wherever he goes he'll always spoil it....

That was the story in brief
