I really enjoyed this book. I found it engaging and kept my attention the whole way through. I actually listened to the audiobook and can credit much of that to Ellen Archer, the narrator , excellent job. I will be listening to more of her. The only part I wasn’t a fan of was the epilogue. I would have liked to of heard it from Alex herself but it still answered all my questions except, did they go back for Lola? I’m going to assume yes. Great audiobook listen, just like the Host. I recommend this book.

I was so excited to finally read this new book from Stephenie Meyer. It took me awhile to get into it. The beginning started with a third person narrative and lengthy detailed information which was a bit much. After the first 100 pages, it had parts where I couldn't put the book down, and couldn't wait to read it the next day. I think a lot of great parts, and to many lulls. Her love interest s/h been Kevin and where's Lola?

I think this author is a very good writer, especially when creating some memorable and unique characters. I was intrigued by this book's premise and for the most part, I enjoyed it. But it did go on far too long and was lacking in a few unexpected twists... kept waiting for a big surprise that just didn't happen. I found the chemistry side of the weaponry angle very interesting though!!

I read several of Ms. Meyers earlier books - Twilight series. They were mostly 2 -3 stars. I picked up in the new story section at MCPL and read the summary. Intrigued by that I went ahead and checked it out. From the first couple pages I was hooked. Finished it in three days. This was a good read, not a fluffy sparkly one.

While some might find parts implausible, I enjoyed the entire story. Epilogue was tad "soft". But I'd read it again.

There were many parts of the book that I enjoyed but it was unnecessarily long as well as unrealistic and contradictory near the end. I was left feeling unsatisfied.

A good spy thriller and suspense story with a female spy as the main character. It reminded me a bit of the Twilight series with one female and two male main characters.

I enjoyed this book having a strong female lead character. In so many spy/intrigue books, such as Bourne, males are the main focus. I did not like the Daniel character. He seemed too naïve and weak. I was hoping Alex, or whatever name she was using, would end up with Kevin. I enjoyed their character interaction much more than Alex and Daniel.

Was a pretty good book with a interesting plot, just was a little long and started slow.

I am an avid reader, and have enjoyed Meyers other books as quick fun reads - but The Chemist totally stumped me. I could not make it past page 50. The story was too convoluted and stuffed with unnecessary detail. Skip it.

I found the cat and mouse opening too formulaic to hold my attention. I finally quit. I've read her other books so that was sad for me.
