The Chemist-Stephenie Meyer- Review

So, I finally finished this tomb of a book. 

I was really looking forward to this when I heard it was coming out but it ended up just being a THREE star book for me.

This is totally different to Stephenie’s other books and she should be admired therefore for trying her hand at other genres. However I found it to be a rather average book. I liked it, I managed to finish it but it just wasn’t absolutely amazing as I expected initially it may be.

I won’t detail the plot in too much detail as I’m sure many people before me have, just sum up my thoughts. But it’s essentially a Bourne novel except the protagonist Alex is female.

The characterisation was well done, I liked Alex and Daniel, I thought they were great, I didn’t like Kevin though to be perfectly honest!

The plot moved enough to keep me reading but I wouldn’t say it was particularly fast paced and to the contrary, it really dragged in some places. I got a little bit bored towards the end and skim read a few of the pages, I think the problem with this book is it was too long and it just didn’t hold me interest the entire way through.

Good although average read. Nothing special.

Three stars
