Okay - just finished re-reading The Host and I have a question:

What was Jeb actually doing when he found Mel/Wanda in the desert?? They walked hours to the caves after he found her - did they run surveillance trips out in the desert, that far away?? How did he know she was there? Later, Wanda realizes that the lines weren't actually directions to specific places, but locations that allowed Jeb to see you before he decided to let you in...anyone have any idea or see anything I missed in the book that would tell us exactly what he was doing when he came across her? Just curious!

"Hmmmm...," he mused as he quickly finished. "It seems I'm going to have to tamper with your memory."

That is a really good question. Jeb must have found Wanderer/Mel alone because otherwise...
(and please relieze that this is insanly messed up)

kyle: "What the--"
Sharon: "Kill it before it see's us"
Maggie: "It's all just a ploy to discover us"
jared: *stunned silence and blistering hatred at the recognition*
Ian" "i don't think it has the strength to move, let alone hurt us. it needs help."
Kyle: "Ian, you're an idiot"
Ian: "sorry kyle that's your job"
Andy: "are we going to kill it or not?"
Kyle: "dibbs"
Ian: "this isn't necessary..."
Doc: "it would be useful..."
Jeb: "Everyone SHUT UP. We're doing what i say because..."
Everyone: "this is your house."

Yeah, very cute! But I know he was alone, because he left her and then came back with the others...but were they running out in the desert on security checks, or what? That's just one thing that's been unanswered for me...that and how they also found the Seeker, how that fight went down when Wes and Brandt were shot....we never really learn those details, either....

i know what you mean, but is the way he found her really important? i liked how it was (at first i thought that it was Jared) i don't think a full explanation would have added to the story.

I think he just saw her passing back and forth, the way the directions would make anyone do if they were following them, and he decided to go check her out. They obviously watch what is going on at groud level around the caves. They know exactly what is going on with the search party, for instance. I'm sure they run routine sweeps of the area and take turns just keeping an eye out.

As far as Jeb, himself, goes... I love his character. He acutally reminds me of a great-uncle I had. The one that is slightly off but he sees way more and knows way more than anyone gives him credit for. Jeb's great!

No - doesn't really change anything at all, I was just so curious about how they could watch all the Souls and have learned so much about them. They must have had some kind of surveillance going on or something...just intrigues me is all. :lol:

I like his character. I thought it was funny how he was thought of as "crazy" by so many of his family members and then he turned out to be wise beyond expectation. I woud like to know more of his story

Jeb is hilarious. He makes my uncle look normal.

He's fun to come up with Taglines for.
