The thriller is worth a read. But her fans can’t take it as they were expecting a sequel for her unfinished “Midnight Sun” (The Twilight novel from Edwards’s perspective). She has stated in her recent interview “When a book comes out, and it’s not ‘Midnight Sun,’ people are unhappy. I’ve always been hard on myself, and now that everyone is reading my stuff, half the people hate it,” she said. “It’s hard when you start doubting yourself, and a few million people are telling you that you’re right, and that you should doubt yourself even more.”
She added that she doesn’t want to stick only to the same genre, as she is bored and she wants to explore different ones. Her previous novel “The Host” was a Sci-Fi were an alien comes to earth and occupy human bodies.
Her fans reacted differently in social Medias. Few fans are happy to read whatever favourite author pen, but few wants Twilight kind of novel. Whatever the reaction is The Chemist is a must read for thriller lovers and Stephenie’s fans. The novel has got positive reviews but, the sale might not reach peaks as her Twilight series. The Twilight series has sold around 155 million copies and the movie series has made around $3 billion worldwide.
