liked it

this read a lot more like a book for science class than i had hoped. i wanted more murder and less elements but it was still an interesting read. it was fun to learn about the history of alchemy and just how far some people are willing to go to murder. also, interesting to learn about all of the "bad" elements that exist in our bodies and in our environment in general/naturally. a good read if you like science and history.
