The Chemist
The Chemist | Stephenie Meyer
In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life. She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realises it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires makes her situation even more dangerous. Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of. In this tautly plotted novel, Stephenie Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialised skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's bestselling authors.

Between a pick and a so so. Read it for a book club and enjoyed it enough to finish in a weekend. Had a very hard time thinking of questions to ask at book club. I don‘t think there‘s much to discuss here. Lots of action, lots of guns, big summer block buster of a book. My sticky notes are things I want to discuss, but all very surface level. 🙄

Why the hate for Stephenie Meyer? I don't mind her. I just want to be completely engrossed in a story and be made to feel something. If you catch my attention and make me forget the world around me for a few minutes, I call that a win. I was super busy and it took me a month to find enough time to read this in full. It was a little slow at first, but somewhere near the middle of the book it picked up the pace. A coworker loaned it to me randomly.

Trying to keep up with reviews. All I have to say is that I respect this author a lot. As a result, I wanted to read something by her which was not the saga she is so well known for, but I was afraid to be disappointed. Thankfully, it's furthest from the truth. The main character is funny, relatable, and jump-of-the-page real. The supporting characters are just as strong. And despite all of the odds... that ending. 😭😍❤️📚🎉 #nospoilers #scifi

So far I am enjoying this one. I didn‘t really enjoy the twilight books by Meyer so I took a chance and gave this one a shot. It‘s kept my interest and has me turning page after page surprisingly, main character Alex thought process seems so robotic when she thinks of Daniel it‘s entertaining. The action in this adds to its appeal for me as well.

It feels so weird to be back from vacation already. Thankfully my coworkers helped me manage my caseload, so it is not as overwhelming as I feared. And there is always reading to help me cope. This is my current book, and so far it's definitely engaging and worthwhile. #currentlyreading

My eyes may be bigger than my speed of reading. Pro of working at the library access to a lot of books I don‘t own. Plus don‘t have to make room in my already too large collection of Books. And saves me money. Con of it is that I check out all the books I want to read but I still have so many waiting to be read at home. There are not enough Hours in the day!! the top two are sequels to books I‘ve read and I‘m excited to see what happens next!

Stephanie Meyer has improved a lot over the years, this book was engaging and I loved the whole story. I recommend the audiobook as well, I‘ve really enjoyed this story and was on the edge of my seat more than once! Some people have issues with the slower pace to get the story going, but once it‘s on the move it goes fast. Like I said the audiobook helps a lot to get through the slower parts.

I have never read the Twilight series and never will. Do not read vampire books. However I lived Stephenie's The Host. Finally got to this one. Lived it too. Love how her books make me think. This one about whether or not torture is ever acceptable.

Mindyrecycles I enjoyed the twilights but really hated The Host. 😂 12mo

The Chemist was no comparison to Twilight— not bad, not good, but just meh. I do think it should‘ve been shorter simply bc it easily ‘could-have-been‘ & without sacrificing anything or any meat. Also, it was a book club read (and I‘m the one that submitted this book for reading) and I was very disappointed that there were no pre-written book club discussion questions by Meyers or on her website :/

Have you read this book yet? I am doing the audio book so no looking ahead. It is a little difficult & rough at the moment. Was looking for a little relief & happy thought!!

I really enjoyed this read. An ex-agent is on the run from her former employer. They called her The Chemist and she uses her unique set of skills trying to outsmart, out run what they have in store for her. It was super fast paced with a little romance thrown in. This book has a ton of highly skilled K-9s throughout the book. I‘m always been intrigued by well trained dogs and what they can really do. It really added to the uniqueness of this book.

Wow. This was so much better than I expected. It‘s not a book I ever intended to read, but when your grandmother shoves a book at you because she loved it so much it‘s really hard to turn it down. It was action-packed and engaging and well paced, and the main character was awesome. Full review here: http://novelnotions.net/2018/07/18/the-chemist/

So I have decided that I like audio books! I have a 30 minute commute to work each day, so I started listening to the book instead of the radio. I knew my limits at home, and would read the book instead of listening to the audio. Worked out great for me. I'm sure some of you all have been doing this for a while- I'm just a little late to the show lol! But I did enjoy this book much better than the Host. It was a surprisingly good read!

Bookzombie Yay! Glad you are enjoying audiobooks! 1y

Alex, an ex-secret agent working for a covert branch of the U.S. government, has been on the run for three years. Suddenly, she is lured out of hiding when her ex-handler asks her to interrogate a suspect involved in a biological terror plot. She captures the suspect, and begins to break him down, when she finds out how deep the rabbit hole goes. PLEASE STEPH, STOP WITH THE SUPERHERO REFERENCES.

This is the first book Iv read that had so many fight scenes/spy stuff in it. I‘m not one for mysteries, or action, But I did enjoy the small bit of romance thrown in. I‘m a huge fan of Stephanie myer, but I was definitely missing the sci-fi/fantasy vibe she usually has. Well written, the romance was a little forced, as was the character of Kevin. But I fell in love with the characters and stayed up late to keep reading several nights. 7.5/10⭐️

Omgeeee I thought for a while that I would dislike this book. But I. AM. Hooked. So much suspense and unknown and these characters 🙌🏻 #latenightreading #bedhogs #stephaniemyer

LibrarianRyan Once I got into it I enjoyed it. Mostly. But it took a bit. 2y
Amabear @LibrarianRyan I‘m a sucker for a love story, and I thought this book was going to be utterly romance free for a minute so I was dragging through, I‘m not usually a mystery or action reader but it started getting me into it! They just left the safe house. I‘m nervous and excited for what‘s next 😂 I wanted to keep reading but I hav responsibilities tomorrow lol. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Amabear I stayed up@way to late last night. In this book I like the action and the intrigue much better than the romance. When the romance picks up speed is where it lost me again. (edited) 2y

They all look SO good through. One of the Darcy books is headed off to a new home! Have you Read any of these? #bookhaul they were BOGO!

I can't take one more book that has the main characters fall in love within two seconds of meeting each other!!!!! "I don't know you at all and you've been quite awful since I met you, but I'd die for you because you're hot."

Make the effort to have the characters grow into it!!!! Ugh. So annoyed I couldn't even be bothered to get an image for this review ?

So I put this book off for years. I just couldn‘t understand how you could jump from vampires to a thriller. But now I wish I had picked it up sooner! This audiobook took forever but I loved every bit of it! The main character was paranoid as heck but she was also a badass. And I think this is going to be a movie or TV show - which I will definitely be watching. 💉
