Book Review | The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer

This was such a fun, page-turning read from Stephanie Meyer! I think Meyer has found the genre she was always meant to write in!

The thing I’ve always liked about Stephanie Meyer’s writing is how she gets me caught up in the characters stories. I can’t tell you how fast I read through the Twilight books, even though I began to detest them about halfway through New Moon. What many have criticized Meyer for in the Twilight books—a weak feminine protagonist, mainly—you can’t criticized her for here. Her main protagonist, Alex, is a fierce, dangerous character.

This ex-agent has a very specific skill set that makes her lethal, and has been on the run from the government for three years, after many attempts on her life. Over those years she’s had to kill a few people to protect herself. When her former handler offers her a way out, she finds out its too good to be true. She’s like a female Jason Bourne and it’s great!

This book moved at a very fast pace, and had me itching to know what would happen next, and how she and her companions would get out of the current scrape they found themselves in.

 

The only reason I didn’t give this more stars was the romance felt a little unbelievable at first. Otherwise, this was probably my favorite book from Meyer!

My rating: 4/5 stars

  1. I must admit I was also into Twilight a few years back and now with all these new and talented authors making their name in the bestsellers list, I realize there’s still so much more than the Cullens have to offer. I’m glad that Meyer finally branched out to a more serious and exciting new genre. Thanks for sharing your review, I will definitely read this soon!

  2. I wasn’t sure if I’d be interested in this book when I first heard about it, but now you’ve sold me on it! When I heard she was writing a new book, I was hoping for a sequel to The Host, but I guess this will work too! 😉
