I don't really know the rules for that stuff I wonder. She snagged the warm, bloody finger off the floor and backed to the bathroom, keeping her eyes on him as he writhed in his bonds; even the best zip ties weren't foolproof.

Don't ask me how it ended. Honestly, I would have DNF'd probably, except for the fact that so many people were asking about this book, wanting to know how it was and whether I liked it.

I'm genuinely sorry to say that, no, I didn't. There would be flashes of good writing or clever dialogue, and I would sit up a little, hopeful, only to be disappointed again and again.

Hopefully her next work will be better. If you're new to her work, don't start with this one, please. View all 73 comments. But I was pleasantly surprised that SM wrote such a great thriller.

I just wished they could have taken all of the dogs and that's all I'm going to say on that because you need to read the book!

Juliana Fortis has been on the run for some time. They want to kill her for reasons. She changes names constantly and keeps on the run.

She booby-traps any place she stays in and they are some awesome booby traps. She sleeps in a gas mask and other things. Sounds like a pretty crap life.

Then she is pulled back in to the fold in a sense with some information email to her by an old friend from the work place.

She decides to go after the person they want her to find because it's a matter of life and death for millions of people. It was a lie and she tortured a sweet man for no reason.

This bothers her to no end and said boys brother almost takes her out with the help of his dog Einstein. He's off the grid for reasons.

I love all of the dogs and all of the characters. But poor Daniel is an idiot. I mean you have all of these people trying to kill you in the world and he goes off and does something stupid.

So now not only are people looking for Alex Juliana and Kevin but they will take out Daniel too and anyone or thing that gets in their way.

Yes, a lot of people die and some things happen to the dogs. BUT, they didn't expect to run into Alex - The Chemist, a weapon of torture and how she can take you out.

I mean there WAS these assassins but. Back to Daniel, I wanted to smack him sideways for being so stupid. I mean yes, he's never been in situations like Alex or his brother Kevin.

But I have never been in those situations and even my tiny brain knows not to do stupid stuff like he did! I digress! All kinds of stuff goes down and in the end some of them end up where they want to be.

LOL, just read the book and you can know the whole story. I very much enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down actually.

I waited so long because I felt like I was going to be bored because these kinds of books a lot of times bore me to tears. And for some weird reason I thought we were going to be sitting in a lab, doing boring lab stuff and blah.

It wasn't like that and it's all good so there. View all 30 comments. Feeling post pages: I tried, I really did. But how am I supposed to take our torturer seriously when the victim can't even?

She'd never dealt with that in an interrogation before. All the others who'd been on her table had known what they were there for.

She'd faced terror and pleading, and, occasionally, stoic defiance, but never this strange, trusting almost-challenge: You won't hurt me. Awkward sentences, Mary Sue who's a PG black widow, insta-love Don't hate me Twi-hards.

Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature : Stephenie Meyer changes it up fairly dramatically in The Chemist , her second adult novel, where there is nary a vampire, werewolf or space alien to be found.

The narrator, a bright, rather repressed molecular biologist, was originally hired by a nameless government agency to do cutting-edge medical research, but ended up being pressured to use her medical skills to create biological compounds that cause severe pain without permanent physical damage, and then to use them for torture-assisted interrogations sanctioned by this agency.

She justified doing this because it was for the purpose of fighting terrorism and major crime. But something she learned made her a liability for the agency: a poisonous gas attack killed her co-worker and just missed her.

Alex arms herself to the teeth each day, with guns, syringes filled with various useful and often deadly solutions, and readily breakable glass earrings containing a caustic gas.

And she sets up an appallingly elaborate booby trap in her apartments before she goes to sleep each night, with a dummy in the bed complete with a fake bewigged head and with wires attached to it that will set off her homemade poison gas if the dummy is disturbed, while she sleeps in the bathtub wearing a gas mask every night.

Her preparations have paid off: in this way she has killed three assassins that the agency has sent after her. If she does this, her contact promises, there will be no more threats to her life from the agency.

Knowing it could be a trick, but wishing for some peace in her life, and moved by the threat of a biological attack that could kill hundreds of thousands, Alex takes on the job despite her suspicions.

She was right to be suspicious. Now she has some people on her side, and they all have a bone to pick with certain government agencies.

The hunted turn into the hunters. Meyer clearly did quite a bit of homework with respect to the molecular biology and other scientific and medical elements of the plot.

These details are realistic and intriguing, without bogging down the plot. The preternaturally intelligent trained dogs occasionally perform eyebrow-raising feats, but they added a definite spark to the story.

All of the main characters off several people during the course of the story, though more tender-hearted readers can comfort themselves with the thought that by and large the dead probably deserved their fate.

Despite its length, The Chemist moves along quickly; I finished it pretty much in one evening and never got bored.

Content advisory: This is an adult book with violence and a high body count, not for the squeamish. There's also a non-explicit sex scene and some light innuendo.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. Thank you! View all 21 comments.

Okay so to be honest it vexes me to see Stephenie Meyer being vilified by so many reviewers here on Goodreads. No it is more than that.

I mean there are not so pleasant reviews posted by people who admittedly have not even read the book in question and then there are those that completely deconstruct the book pick one, particularly from the Twilight Saga but if you check out their read count you might notice that this is their second, third or fourth time through said book.

If I do not like a book, chances are I may not finish it or It will get a lower star rating from me, but under no circumstance do I ever read it again.

To think that there are some people doing that just so they can more effectively eviscerate it, well that just seems mean spirited to me and not at all in keeping with the positive, supportive and accepting environment that has been my own personal experience here on this site.

Sparkly or not. And I can admit that I have felt oddly complicit in my silence. The blurb for The Chemist gives a good summary of the nature of the story so I will not rehash that here, suffice to say it is about a former agent, of some secret government group, who is in fact a torturer, not of the plier, hammer and waterboard variety but one who employs chemical compounds designed to stimulate intense pain thereby encouraging her subjects to reveal whatever hidden truth is desired.

Only now the chemist has gone rogue, running for her life from her one time employer who clearly wants her neutralized. Great ideas, pulled wet from a well, never nurtured or given the time to develop and realize their full potential.

The narrative does not flow very well. It feels clunky and cobbled together. At the same time it felt like the author was just trying too hard, most especially in introducing and fleshing out the protagonist Alex.

It was like she was trying to convince herself about the plausibility of this character and quite frankly the more she said the worse it got.

And then there were the times that I felt like a contestant on some game show, with my hand in the air willing the host to pick me, pick me.

I know the answer or perhaps the question. Moving right along we have insta love up next. Never mind that Alex voices her resistance, no doubt the lady doth protest too much.

Sadly it is not to be found here. Sure the hunt is on, the stakes are high and oh my is that not a lovely moon we have tonight.

In other words…… There is a lot of romantic filler but sadly little romantic tension. On the bright side I loved Einstein and Khan and all the other four legged team members putting themselves courageously in the line of fire to defend our chemist and company.

They rock! For those of you who may have never read a Stephenie Meyer book, please, I implore you, do not start here.

If teenage angst and sparkly vampires are not your cuppa then might I recommend The Host. It is a highly enjoyable read. View all 39 comments.

I don't get it. How is it possible? Has Stephenie Meyer's fame completely evaporated already?! View all 19 comments. This was awesome!

I was invested from the first chapter. It was action packed! The story drew me in and I really wanted to find out who was behind it all. There were a few slower chapters scattered throughout but they were still interesting.

In other reviews, some people considered it too wordy but I didn't feel this way at all. I actually liked having all the information and knowing how much preparation and strife the main character went through to not be found and killed.

Apparently it's friggin exhausting! I would've been dead in roughly three days. No thank you. The book was great for the first third and last third but it was a little wobbly in the middle due to the romance between two of the characters.

Chapter 15 where the romance started was just not good. I felt like the author forced the romance instead of allowing it to happen naturally and that's never a good thing.

Plus the intelligent and badass main character started slipping and losing her head, which was annoying. Contrary to what the author believes, love doesn't make people drool at the mouth and babble nonsense.

As much as I loved this book I had to take away a quarter star for that. Luckily it gets better and that chapter was simply a speed bump in an otherwise fantastic book.

The main characters in this one include Alex, who I liked for most of the book, Daniel, who I also liked for most of the book, and Kevin, who I hated at first but loved by the end.

Secondary characters include Val, who slightly annoyed me but who grew on me a little when she became useful, Ernesto, who was just kind of there, and, of course, Einstein, Khan, Lola, and the rest of the dogs, who were amazing.

A special mention goes to her PPK and Sig Sauer that were brought up about times over the course of the book. Overall I'm really glad I decided to ignore my worries about the fact that this author wrote Twilight, and to give this book a go.

I was pleasantly surprised and will read more of her novels in the future. Other than me forcing him to read all my reviews before I post them.

High points: - The characters: I liked the main characters, they are pretty interesting. There were some very drug out scenes in the middle.

The blah poi Not really sure how I feel about this one. The blah point: - The story: Most of the time I had no idea what was going on in the main story or what the character motivations were.

Just way too convoluted. Maybe others got it, but I was often wondering why they were going somewhere.

Do I recommend it? Not sure Is it YA? Not really, except it kinda has a YA formula. All the characters are adults, though.

I could put it down and walk away and then at other times all I could think of was readi 3. I could put it down and walk away and then at other times all I could think of was reading this book.

It was a strange feeling for me as I am usually totally engaged and invested while reading a novel. I had a hard time figuring out and remembering who was who and how they were connected to the ongoing storyline.

The novels main character who goes by the name of "Alex" most of the time is a strong female lead who is an expert in her line of work and possesses a unique talent to get the job done.

I found her first experience with Daniel was quite intense and exciting but that intensity just didn't continue for me throughout the rest of the novel.

I think I was more interested in the relationship that Kevin had with his extremely intelligent trained dogs and their special abilities especially Einstein, as it added some extra life to the storyline.

To wrap it up it was an interesting, slower-paced, somewhat exciting read with a satisfying ending. Would I recommend? Maybe, as I think this is one that you have to read for yourself to see if you love or hate it!

Forget who the author is and just judge the book on its own value. It turns out to be a very readable, entertaining story with likeable characters Daniel in particular and some well written and amusing dialogue.

That's not to say that a little more editor's red pen could have been applied. There were sections that went on too long, and some judicious cutting could have made the book tighter and might even have given it a greater degree of suspens Forget who the author is and just judge the book on its own value.

There were sections that went on too long, and some judicious cutting could have made the book tighter and might even have given it a greater degree of suspense.

Alex is one feisty lady, Daniel as mentioned before is charming and Kevin also has a lot going for him.

The ending is exciting and the epilogue satisfying. I liked it very much! View all 8 comments. You can find this review and more at Novel Notions.

This is a book I honestly had no intention of reading. Twilight will always be one of my guilty pleasures. The foreshadowing that was so present in You can find this review and more at Novel Notions.

I was wrong. The only reason I gave in and read it is because both my mother and grandmother were raving about how much they loved it. I was skeptical, but they were totally right.

Who would have guessed that Meyer had this kind of skill lurking beneath her teen paranormal romances? Our main character, who shall remain nameless, has been on the run for three years.

There is no martial arts black belt in her background. In the first two chapters, we see how incredibly cautious and well prepared our chemist is.

The precautions she takes before going to sleep each night impressed me and saddened me at the same time. She was excellent at working to minimize her weaknesses and emphasize her strengths.

And if there was a weakness that could be turned into a strength, she did so without hesitation. She utilizes this by using unisex aliases like Casey and Chris, and knows how to dress and alter her gait in a way that many people would dismiss her as a teenage boy.

While impressive, the life she was living was no real life; survival was all that mattered. But then things changed.

She met people who radically impacted her life for the better, and she was determined to keep them, even if it killed her.

None of the characters felt like carbon copies of each other, or like two dimensional characters added merely to bulk up the cast.

Every character felt real, and had their own fears and hopes and quirks. Meyer also presented dogs in a wonderful way, where they felt like fully fleshed out characters in their own right.

I have a soft spot for authors who include animals as legitimate characters and give them their own vibrant personalities, so I was thrilled by this inclusion.

And can we take just a moment to appreciate the vast amounts of research that must have gone into this book?

This is a delicate balance to strike, and I was impressed with how well Meyer handled it. I was honestly astonished by the work that must have gone into writing this book.

Also, the readability factor was through the roof. Meyer has that gift. Another element I definitely appreciated was the pacing.

This is not a short book. My copy was pages long. And never in over six hundred pages did the story drag.

The pace was steady and engaging through the entirety of the story, which is incredibly rare. Even better, in my opinion, is the fact that this book stands completely alone!

Standalone novels are unfortunately few and far between these days, so I latch on when I find one, especially when it turns out to be a great book.

Finally, I just have to applaud this novel for its cleanliness. For a book in this genre, there was remarkably little profanity or descriptive sexual encounters.

Remember when I said that my grandmother recommended this book to me? The Chemist is a fast-paced thriller full of intelligent characters who are easy to care about.

Sometimes, the brain can be your deadliest weapon. I have nothing negative to say about this book, and I hope more people will give it a chance. View all 11 comments.

Attempted in April DNFed on page Are you telling me I didn't get further than 56 pages?! It felt like about Of nothing happening. I was excited about this book.

I loved Stephanie Meyer's adult sci-fi The Host and was eager to see her write another adult novel but this was just boring.

It was 56 years pages of infodump on how this character hides her identity and Attempted in April It was 56 years pages of infodump on how this character hides her identity and takes so many precautions to not be found, but I don't know who she is, who's trying to find her, or why anyone needs to find her.

The story hasn't even started yet at where I'm leaving off. It's rare for me to DNF an audiobook because they are so easy to just let play, but this certainly doesn't work in audiobook format.

The story is already dull, and the narration was pretty monotonous and lifeless. I had no reason to care about this character or her story, so I'm moving on to things I'm more in the mood for.

The only thing I didn't like was view spoiler [how the insta-love between Alex and Daniel was handled. I would have rather this been a slow simmer rather than a quick burn.

A new Stephenie Meyer!!!!!!!! The blurb is lackluster. The forbidden love element terrifies the shit out of me. We shall see.

Recruited as a young adult and trained to focus on nothing but the assigned mission As such, this "adult" book resembles Ms. Meyer's YA fiction in that it features new experiences for the heroine which results in instalove, characters who go googly eyes over kissing and hand-holding, and references to intimacy that fades-to-black.

I have mad respect for Ms. Meyer's choice to try her hand at a new genre and was desperately excited to see this new release available. Meyer's storytelling in Twilight is what made me first take notice of how engaging leisure reading could be.

It was life-changing for me So, I did experience some disappointment while reading The Chemist to see that her writing style appears to have changed significantly in my perspective.

One of the noticeable changes is that The Chemist is written in third-person versus her historically successful first-person narrative, and her overall storytelling, while fast-paced and engaging, created seventeen hours audio of observing and not experiencing for me anyway.

There are several well-loved authors who are wildly successful with similar styles but Ms. Meyer's writing has always sucked me in and let me live a different life for a while.

I was gravely disappointed by this element; however, I am equally enamored by having another female lead in the thriller genre. So 3 stars it is. Most people will read this book out of curiosity and I won't deter you.

Check it out! I'm sure there will be many who will absolutely love it. My favorite quote: "Laugh about it or cry about it, that's the only choice.

I'd rather laugh while I can. I was really apprehensive about reading this book because of the mixed reviews but I was absolutely intrigued from the first page!

I would recommend those who were worried like I was to read it. View 2 comments. What a bore! I was so excited to read this because I'm a huge Twilight fan, but it was so boring and flat.

The Chemist

I read it almost ten years ago, and I was at the perfect point in my life where it actually made a lot of sense to me.

Because of that, I will always have fond feelings for Bella and Edward's admittedly self-ab Instagram Twitter Facebook Amazon Pinterest I have a love-hate relationship with Stephenie Meyer's work, and I think a lot of other people feel that way, too even if they won't admit it.

Because of that, I will always have fond feelings for Bella and Edward's admittedly self-absorbed world. It's morally complex and features these creepy aliens straight out of the Animorphs series.

In fact, I've always said that the Souls are an awful lot like the Yeerks. I've read it several times, and I'll be the first to admit that while the story has its problems, the writing and world-building make up for it.

I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that we're still desperately waiting on those two sequels. Come on! When I found out that Stephenie Meyer was writing something new, my first feeling was disappointment.

Like, "Oh, so you're too busy to work on my precious HOST sequels, but not too busy to publish a page tome , I see. This is the first completely new thing that Meyer has put out in years.

Of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I counted down the days to its release date feeling giddy. She abandons her trademark first-person narrative style for a removed third-person retelling, featuring a retired female assassin who tortures and kills people with various poisons and chemicals hence her eponymous nom de guerre, The Chemist.

One day, she ends up getting roped back into her old career. Her assignment? To stop a potential terrorist from spreading a man-made plague. This plot should be the bomb-dot-com.

Female assassins? Political intrigue? Deadly missions? Yes, yes, and yes. Unfortunately, it was not bomb-dot-com. More like lame-dot-org. Despite a compelling opening, the plot of the chemist sinks hard and fast.

It's boring. There's a marked lack of conflict. When the heroine encounters the love interest, she pretty much falls for him instnatly, even though she's not supposed to surprise.

Despite the fact that they meet under less than ideal circumstances, they have no misunderstandings or lack of empathy.

This sounds like a good thing - in fact, I'm sure you're shaking your head at me, thinking, "You're actually complaining about a relationship that doesn't have any misunderstandings or lack of empathy?

The heroine tortures the hero, and he doesn't even care. Doesn't blame her, doesn't hold a grudge about it. Second, despite having a plot revolving around assassinations and bio-terrorism, there's pretty much no drama.

The heroine and the hero make out. A lot. They talk about dogs and food. At one point, the heroine gets a makeover and becomes best-fray-frays with Alice's psychotic, non-vampiric twin.

All those scenes that the reader takes for granted and shouldn't have to be written into the story? Meyer writes about them.

There are some unintentionally hilarious lines in this book, though. Like this one: "Um, is this some kind of fetish fantasy thing?

I don't really know the rules for that stuff I wonder. She snagged the warm, bloody finger off the floor and backed to the bathroom, keeping her eyes on him as he writhed in his bonds; even the best zip ties weren't foolproof.

Alex arms herself to the teeth each day, with guns, syringes filled with various useful and often deadly solutions, and readily breakable glass earrings containing a caustic gas.

And she sets up an appallingly elaborate booby trap in her apartments before she goes to sleep each night, with a dummy in the bed complete with a fake bewigged head and with wires attached to it that will set off her homemade poison gas if the dummy is disturbed, while she sleeps in the bathtub wearing a gas mask every night.

Her preparations have paid off: in this way she has killed three assassins that the agency has sent after her.

If she does this, her contact promises, there will be no more threats to her life from the agency.

Knowing it could be a trick, but wishing for some peace in her life, and moved by the threat of a biological attack that could kill hundreds of thousands, Alex takes on the job despite her suspicions.

She was right to be suspicious. Now she has some people on her side, and they all have a bone to pick with certain government agencies. The hunted turn into the hunters.

Meyer clearly did quite a bit of homework with respect to the molecular biology and other scientific and medical elements of the plot.

These details are realistic and intriguing, without bogging down the plot. The preternaturally intelligent trained dogs occasionally perform eyebrow-raising feats, but they added a definite spark to the story.

All of the main characters off several people during the course of the story, though more tender-hearted readers can comfort themselves with the thought that by and large the dead probably deserved their fate.

Despite its length, The Chemist moves along quickly; I finished it pretty much in one evening and never got bored. Content advisory: This is an adult book with violence and a high body count, not for the squeamish.

There's also a non-explicit sex scene and some light innuendo. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. Thank you!

I mean there are not so pleasant reviews posted by people who admittedly have not even read the book in question and then there are those that completely deconstruct the book pick one, particularly from the Twilight Saga but if you check out their read count you might notice that this is their second, third or fourth time through said book.

If I do not like a book, chances are I may not finish it or It will get a lower star rating from me, but under no circumstance do I ever read it again.

To think that there are some people doing that just so they can more effectively eviscerate it, well that just seems mean spirited to me and not at all in keeping with the positive, supportive and accepting environment that has been my own personal experience here on this site.

Sparkly or not. And I can admit that I have felt oddly complicit in my silence. The blurb for The Chemist gives a good summary of the nature of the story so I will not rehash that here, suffice to say it is about a former agent, of some secret government group, who is in fact a torturer, not of the plier, hammer and waterboard variety but one who employs chemical compounds designed to stimulate intense pain thereby encouraging her subjects to reveal whatever hidden truth is desired.

Only now the chemist has gone rogue, running for her life from her one time employer who clearly wants her neutralized.

Great ideas, pulled wet from a well, never nurtured or given the time to develop and realize their full potential. The narrative does not flow very well.

It feels clunky and cobbled together. At the same time it felt like the author was just trying too hard, most especially in introducing and fleshing out the protagonist Alex.

It was like she was trying to convince herself about the plausibility of this character and quite frankly the more she said the worse it got.

And then there were the times that I felt like a contestant on some game show, with my hand in the air willing the host to pick me, pick me. I know the answer or perhaps the question.

Moving right along we have insta love up next. Never mind that Alex voices her resistance, no doubt the lady doth protest too much.

Sadly it is not to be found here. Sure the hunt is on, the stakes are high and oh my is that not a lovely moon we have tonight.

In other words…… There is a lot of romantic filler but sadly little romantic tension. On the bright side I loved Einstein and Khan and all the other four legged team members putting themselves courageously in the line of fire to defend our chemist and company.

They rock! For those of you who may have never read a Stephenie Meyer book, please, I implore you, do not start here.

If teenage angst and sparkly vampires are not your cuppa then might I recommend The Host. It is a highly enjoyable read.

View all 19 comments. This was awesome! I was invested from the first chapter. It was action packed! The story drew me in and I really wanted to find out who was behind it all.

There were a few slower chapters scattered throughout but they were still interesting. In other reviews, some people considered it too wordy but I didn't feel this way at all.

I actually liked having all the information and knowing how much preparation and strife the main character went through to not be found and killed.

Apparently it's friggin exhausting! I would've been dead in roughly three days. No thank you. The book was great for the first third and last third but it was a little wobbly in the middle due to the romance between two of the characters.

Chapter 15 where the romance started was just not good. I felt like the author forced the romance instead of allowing it to happen naturally and that's never a good thing.

Plus the intelligent and badass main character started slipping and losing her head, which was annoying.

Contrary to what the author believes, love doesn't make people drool at the mouth and babble nonsense. As much as I loved this book I had to take away a quarter star for that.

Luckily it gets better and that chapter was simply a speed bump in an otherwise fantastic book. The main characters in this one include Alex, who I liked for most of the book, Daniel, who I also liked for most of the book, and Kevin, who I hated at first but loved by the end.

Secondary characters include Val, who slightly annoyed me but who grew on me a little when she became useful, Ernesto, who was just kind of there, and, of course, Einstein, Khan, Lola, and the rest of the dogs, who were amazing.

A special mention goes to her PPK and Sig Sauer that were brought up about times over the course of the book.

Overall I'm really glad I decided to ignore my worries about the fact that this author wrote Twilight, and to give this book a go. I was pleasantly surprised and will read more of her novels in the future.

I am willing to go as high as 3. High points: - The characters: I liked the main characters, they are pretty interesting.

There were some very drug out scenes in the middle. The blah poi Not really sure how I feel about this one. The blah point: - The story: Most of the time I had no idea what was going on in the main story or what the character motivations were.

Just way too convoluted. Maybe others got it, but I was often wondering why they were going somewhere.

Do I recommend it? Not sure Is it YA? Not really, except it kinda has a YA formula. All the characters are adults, though.

There were some exciting moments to this novel and then at other times it seemed to drag and it was a little bit boring for me.

I could put it down and walk away and then at other times all I could think of was readi 3. I could put it down and walk away and then at other times all I could think of was reading this book.

It was a strange feeling for me as I am usually totally engaged and invested while reading a novel. I had a hard time figuring out and remembering who was who and how they were connected to the ongoing storyline.

The novels main character who goes by the name of "Alex" most of the time is a strong female lead who is an expert in her line of work and possesses a unique talent to get the job done.

I found her first experience with Daniel was quite intense and exciting but that intensity just didn't continue for me throughout the rest of the novel.

I think I was more interested in the relationship that Kevin had with his extremely intelligent trained dogs and their special abilities especially Einstein, as it added some extra life to the storyline.

To wrap it up it was an interesting, slower-paced, somewhat exciting read with a satisfying ending. Would I recommend? Maybe, as I think this is one that you have to read for yourself to see if you love or hate it!

Forget who the author is and just judge the book on its own value. It turns out to be a very readable, entertaining story with likeable characters Daniel in particular and some well written and amusing dialogue.

That's not to say that a little more editor's red pen could have been applied. There were sections that went on too long, and some judicious cutting could have made the book tighter and might even have given it a greater degree of suspens Forget who the author is and just judge the book on its own value.

There were sections that went on too long, and some judicious cutting could have made the book tighter and might even have given it a greater degree of suspense.

Alex is one feisty lady, Daniel as mentioned before is charming and Kevin also has a lot going for him. The ending is exciting and the epilogue satisfying.

I liked it very much! View all 8 comments. You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. This is a book I honestly had no intention of reading.

Twilight will always be one of my guilty pleasures. The foreshadowing that was so present in You can find this review and more at Novel Notions.

I was wrong. The only reason I gave in and read it is because both my mother and grandmother were raving about how much they loved it. I was skeptical, but they were totally right.

Who would have guessed that Meyer had this kind of skill lurking beneath her teen paranormal romances? Our main character, who shall remain nameless, has been on the run for three years.

There is no martial arts black belt in her background. In the first two chapters, we see how incredibly cautious and well prepared our chemist is.

The precautions she takes before going to sleep each night impressed me and saddened me at the same time. She was excellent at working to minimize her weaknesses and emphasize her strengths.

And if there was a weakness that could be turned into a strength, she did so without hesitation. She utilizes this by using unisex aliases like Casey and Chris, and knows how to dress and alter her gait in a way that many people would dismiss her as a teenage boy.

While impressive, the life she was living was no real life; survival was all that mattered. But then things changed. She met people who radically impacted her life for the better, and she was determined to keep them, even if it killed her.

None of the characters felt like carbon copies of each other, or like two dimensional characters added merely to bulk up the cast. Every character felt real, and had their own fears and hopes and quirks.

Meyer also presented dogs in a wonderful way, where they felt like fully fleshed out characters in their own right.

I have a soft spot for authors who include animals as legitimate characters and give them their own vibrant personalities, so I was thrilled by this inclusion.

And can we take just a moment to appreciate the vast amounts of research that must have gone into this book? This is a delicate balance to strike, and I was impressed with how well Meyer handled it.

I was honestly astonished by the work that must have gone into writing this book. Also, the readability factor was through the roof.

Meyer has that gift. Another element I definitely appreciated was the pacing. This is not a short book. My copy was pages long.

And never in over six hundred pages did the story drag. The pace was steady and engaging through the entirety of the story, which is incredibly rare.

Even better, in my opinion, is the fact that this book stands completely alone! Standalone novels are unfortunately few and far between these days, so I latch on when I find one, especially when it turns out to be a great book.

Finally, I just have to applaud this novel for its cleanliness. For a book in this genre, there was remarkably little profanity or descriptive sexual encounters.

Remember when I said that my grandmother recommended this book to me? The Chemist is a fast-paced thriller full of intelligent characters who are easy to care about.

Sometimes, the brain can be your deadliest weapon. I have nothing negative to say about this book, and I hope more people will give it a chance. View all 11 comments.

Attempted in April DNFed on page Are you telling me I didn't get further than 56 pages?! It felt like about Of nothing happening.

I was excited about this book. I loved Stephanie Meyer's adult sci-fi The Host and was eager to see her write another adult novel but this was just boring.

It was 56 years pages of infodump on how this character hides her identity and Attempted in April It was 56 years pages of infodump on how this character hides her identity and takes so many precautions to not be found, but I don't know who she is, who's trying to find her, or why anyone needs to find her.

The story hasn't even started yet at where I'm leaving off. It's rare for me to DNF an audiobook because they are so easy to just let play, but this certainly doesn't work in audiobook format.

The story is already dull, and the narration was pretty monotonous and lifeless. Install Steam. Your Store. Browse Browse. Community Hub.

Why Early Access? As we kept developing The Chemist, we realized that it could grow into much more than the simple game we had originally envisioned - we want to make use of early access as a means of adding more content to the game as per your feedback before marking it as released.

The first phase in The Chemist is complete, it has all the core elements we've thought of. Early access is the second phase for us, we want to see what The Chemist can grow to be when further developed together with the community.

You can say that, being a bunch of not-so-normal people ourselves, we started thinking of The Chemist as our child and so our child has to get out and learn more of life before we kick her out of the house.

These will have characteristic visuals and mechanics. These will have characteristic content as well including new contracts, resources, events, traits etc.

A market system where you can purchase new equipment and vanity items that allows you to customize your workspace.

This will also depend on how we choose to proceed with the above point of theme-specific rooms; maybe we can make it so that you can unlock and purchase theme-specific items one by one and turn your room into anything you wish.

Chemical reaction effects. Wouldn't it be cool to see your flasks blowing up? There really are many ways we can go about constructing a coop mechanic for the game and it'd also take up a lot of our limited resources to make it happen.

We'd need lots of feedback towards this to make it happen. Multiplayer - this would be a match-based system where you compete with other chemists with various tools at your disposal to disrupt their operations.

This is another far fetched idea same as coop but with enough resources and feedback it can happen! Quite honestly, early access is a completely new excitement for us as well and we'd like to make the decision of "what to do next" together with you.

No core mechanics are missing either. Content-wise, of the 4 total theme-specific workplaces we're planning to have; 2 of it is in the game the default starting living room and the basement.

It's the reason why we're further developing the game through early access and not simply packing it up for release!

The plan is making use of the Steam discussions to listen to your opinions mostly, but we'll do our best to haunt every major platform where you can leave a review.

We'll also be running polls every now and then prior to setting the goal of an upcoming patch. If things start becoming too hectic for us to keep track of, we'd seek help from community managers willing to help us out in refining your feedback and relaying it to us.
