Okay, I dont know if I am or had a "total blonde moment" but I am still VERY confused about Ian and Jared's last name lol...

When Ian asked Jared if he was jealous that first time he said "Jealous Howe?" I found this funny... But I couldnt understand why lol. When Jared then asked, in the same chapter "Jealous O'Shea?" I got even more confused... Why was I confused? Because I had no idea who O'Shea and Howe were...lol...

I finished the book the first time thinking O'Shea and Howe were two kings that were after the same thing (WHY I came up with that is BEYOND me lol). A few weeks ago, while reading some background information on these to lovely men, I found out that Howe is Jared's last name and O'Shea is Ian's last name... I slapped my hand against my head and rolled on the floor laughing at what I had thought and how stupid I had been...

Okay, so here is the question lol. I am rereading The Host right now (trying to keep myself busy until I reread Twilight for Breaking Dawn...Which isnt working lol). I paid careful attention to when Jared introduced himself. But he never said his last name there! He just kissed Melanie...And Ian never says his name either lol...So, in any part of the book, does Ian or Jared say their last name BEFORE they call eachother by their last name?


Sorry for the long description for such a little question lol...

Jared introduces himself properly after he chases Melanie down. When he knows she won't run away, he holds out his hand and says something like, Hello, my name is Jared Howe. Don't quote me on that, I don't have my book handy. Ian's last name is never mentioned before Jared says "Jealous O'Shea?" It is mentioned many times after that though.

Don't feel bad about not knowing about their last names, we all have those airhead moments. :D That is funny though... :lol: :lol: :lol:

So :shock: , I answered my own DUMBDUMBDUMB :cry: question and so did kitticat2 (Thank you for not laughing at me to hard) :lol:

Jared introduces himself after he chases down Melanie.
Ian says Kyle's last name when he is joking with Jodie.
And, another name I couldnt find for the life of me, Jared shouts Melanie's last name when he is trying to make her come back when she goes missing...

I still laugh when Jared and Ian call eachother by their lasts names...Why, I dont know lol

I love it when guys call each other by their last names, its so funny. I think its because guys are trying to be competitive with each other so they use last names for some reason. But its so funny! :lol: The whole Ian and Jared fighting over Wanda/Melanie is just hilarious!

I don't think Jared says his last name to Wanderer. It'd be pretty repetitive seeing as she'd already know that information; she know's everything else about him.

I think the guys calling each other by their last names, was SM's way of telling us what they were. Just a little something on the side you know.


And my guess is that Wanderer wasn't in a body for weeks at the end. I doubt it would be a month or longer because that's just too freaking long. It wouldn't make sense, even though they did say they wanted the right body. I'm guessing it took them a couple weeks tops because they'd want to do it as quickly as possible.


I loved this book so incredibly much. Way more than anything she's ever written. Way more than any book in the Twilight Series. =]
