For all Twilight 's faults, most people would agree that it's a thrilling premise for a lot of teen girls - a hot vampire who will love you forever, oh my!

But The Chemist is just not very good. And it's also really boring. It's about a former agent and professional torturer who's on the run after the agency made an attempt on her life.

This former agent - whom I will call Alex for simplicity's sake - gets called in by her boss for one last case; one which she hopes will enable her to return to her former life and stop running.

She's suspicious of their intentions, but follows their instructions by kidnapping and torturing Daniel Beach. Every turn the book takes is obvious in advance.

Imagine this scenario: you have a photograph of a guy doing something illegal. The image looks just like the guy in front of you only he swears it isn't him.

How could it be possible that this guy didn't do it and yet someone who looks just like him did? Come up with the least inventive answer to that question and you've already figured out the first "reveal" of the book.

The characters are classic Meyer. A nondescript Mary Sue protagonist is a virgin surrounded by a cast of male characters, with no female relationships never mind friendships in sight.

The love interest is textbook handsome and one-dimensional to the point of disbelief. Daniel is such a good, kind, sappy guy who is concerned for the safety of a person who just tortured him.

I honestly didn't buy it. I don't care how much of a saint you are, if someone tortures you, you're not going to sit up and be like "honey, are you alright?

Nice, sweet guys are underrated in fiction. But not mindlessly self-sacrificing heroes who would cut off their own arm to save the enemy.

I have no interest in those unbelievable creatures. There is no romantic tension. Meyer gives up everything instantly with the way she writes the first encounter between Alex and Daniel.

Despite being a cold, calculating torturer, Alex feels so different about Daniel. But honestly the worst thing is the huge chunk of the book that is made up of Alex and Daniel hiding out at a ranch with a load of dogs.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that so much of this book is made up of pointless chitchat about dogs, guns and cooking. They kiss and watch movies together and sing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in the kitchen.

Maybe this is really funny to some people, but I do this all the time so whatever. The main government spy plot is lost behind all this romantic filler, and its questions are not all that exciting.

It was hard to care about what was going on because the stakes never felt high enough - I never got the sense that Alex's life was at risk.

Rather, I felt I was reading a comfortable romantic chick lit novel, in which every bit of drama is superficial, and everyone is guaranteed to survive and end up together.

And it's a small thing, but someone should point it out: why is our amazing, uncatchable, super-spy reading espionage novels for tips?

Sometimes I wonder if Meyer is just kidding with us, but I suspect she isn't. View all comments. View all 78 comments.

Oh, my, God Becky, look at her book It is so big, she looks like One of those pretentious snobs. But, how da' ya know, if the book is good?

I click on a YouTube Video to see which books are worth my time. Left : Twilight-Stephie, We'll wait til we get married cause I luv you.

Love you more. No, love you more. La-ti-da, beautiful happy life. Right : Stephie 2. Now let's kill som Oh, my, God Becky, look at her book It is so big, she looks like One of those pretentious snobs.

Now let's kill somebody. She's baaaaaaack and badder than ever. Gone are the peace-loving vampires and here are the half-crazed mad scientist on the run plus an equally psycho ex-agent I… well, I almost like you right now.

I kept going back and forth with this one - did I like it? Is it good? I had a real problem with connecting to the main characters and I think that's what kept throwing me out of this book.

First we have Alex , or whatever her name was, she's this big, scary, on-the-run torture-chemist. And I just wasn't feeling it.

Maybe it's from the chemistry courses I've taken but I just couldn't take her seriously when she would wax on about her chemical traps and her gas mask.

It just didn't feel genuine. Plus, right off the bat she completely trusts the evil corporation she spent the last few years running from and manages to torture the wrong person.

Next there's Daniel , he's definitely the fluffy white bunny of the group. He quickly became the latter.

Sure, he doesn't have any fieldwork but I think we could expect him to have picked up a spy novel or caught a Bond movie on the television once in his life.

AND the way he completely forgave Alex for her big "oopsie" in the beginning of the book - how could you not have an ounce of hard feelings towards her after that??

And then there's Kevin - the not-dead twin brother who's actually a secret-agent-on-the-run. I liked him as a character - he was the only one with some sense in his noggin.

He's rude, crass and a bit over-the-top but in a good way. Plus his dogs held my interest when all else failed. The whole trio had a very The Host feel from Stephanie's other stand-alone novel.

Kevin Kyle is the big scary brother who doesn't trust the girl despite ample evidence. Daniel Ian is the more innocent, trusting brother who can see into the girl's heart and knows she's truly good.

And Alex Wanda gets beat up alot and makes the guys feel guilty by having lots of bruises on her face. Did this book drag on? Absolutely, the editor's red pen should have slashed about pages.

Was the plot engaging? Sometimes, but it had too many lulls which resulted in the interesting bits quickly fading from memory.

Did I like it? Finnne, yes. I'll admit it. I liked it. Was it my fave of her books? But I enjoyed reading it. Audiobook Comments Well-read but not particularly memorable.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
