If you loved The Twilight Saga and you like the thriller genre, you will enjoy reading The Chemist. Notice I said “and” and not “or” – that’s an important distinction.
Also, going forward, all my book review photos are going to be Kindle ones since Santa brought me a Kindle for Christmas. That’s kind of boring, I know, but maybe I’ll try to make the photos more interesting?
I am a huge fan of The Twilight Saga – I read the books or watch the movies once a year as part of my 30 days of birthday celebrations, and if you’ve been around my blog for any amount of time, you know I love thrillers. Thing is, The Chemist sort of falls right somewhere in between. The story line is cool, quite thrilling. A genius professional interrogator with a medical background, called The Chemist, who worked for a secret organization in the United States government is on the run from her bosses because they are trying to kill her for something she knows – she doesn’t know why but she’s living an extremely paranoid life. She’s called in by her bosses for a one last mission and to make sure she’s not being double-crossed, kidnaps the subject of the mission, Daniel Beach who supposedly is about to release biological weapon that will kill hundreds of thousands of people. Turns out there’s a bigger conspiracy afoot. That’s all I’m going to tell you about the synopsis.
Spoiler alert, I love the ending.
That said, I’ll admit despite my love of Twilight, I had to speed through some very cheesy dialogue throughout the book. Like when you’re being hunted down by dangerous opponents, there’s no time to roll around in the truck making out ok? That’s just not realistic! (Said the Twilight lover).
It could be a great chic flick. I wonder who’d play Juliana Fortis.
So, are you going to read The Chemist?
