Book review: the Chemist

Three stars? Four?

I have never been a Twilight fan (and proud to say it). But Stephanie Meyer is on to a new heroine now, the Chemist. How interesting that it interleaves with my current TV series obsession “Breaking Bad.” My wife and I are powering through season 4, maybe 5 by the time I post this (We have a tradition of only discovering years-old dramas long after everyone else has forgotten about them).

Hey, its trashy, fun, life-and-death, good-guy-bad-guy action, with some romance thrown in. And laced with chemistry. It could have been a bit more detailed on the science-y chemistry side, instead of the drama side, but who’s complaining? A fast, fun read.

By the way, if you’re a reader and looking for a community of readers who like discussing books they like, consider Goodreads.com. I used to post my reviews there, as I could automatically cross-post them to WordPress, but no longer. With the Goodreads website redesign, the API no longer works. 😦

I still like tracking my TO READ, CURRENTLY READING and READ books there, and visit with friends (bookworms?) of similar interests.

CMIO’s take? Sometimes reading a lot does NOT mean reading for work. And, reading a lot always makes you and your perspective more interesting. And, non-work reading often makes you more useful at work. Even, dare I say, sci-fi.
