The target of both stalkers and killers, a top fashion model with a rare disease sets out to learn how her pioneering scientist father died, only to find herself in the middle of a vicious conspiracy.
Cat is a hot multimillionaire supermodel but her life is far from perfect. She suffers from a chronic brain disorder and she is being stalked by a figure in a raincoat. Who is he … or it? In connection with the bizarre death of the founder of a groundbreaking biotechnology institute, Cat is pulled into a sinister corporate plot with a global backwash.
“Who’s there?”Disorder by Johan Fundin
I rarely give 1 or 2 stars while reviewing a book. Even if I dislike a book, I tend to find something positive to say about it. But there are those books that I can’t say anything positive about. Disorder is one of them.
Disorder’s storyline was confusing. Cat, a supermodel, suffering from narcolepsy, is attacked by a mysterious figure. Many assassins then stalk her as she digs into her father’s death. If the book had stayed focused on that plotline, I would have been okay with it. But the author chose to introduce other storylines that muddied the water. I was left, confused, and disorientated. Which not what I want to be when reading a book.
I wasn’t impressed with the characters either. They were all superficial. I wasn’t a fan with how Cat’s beauty was pushed on me as a reader. She’s a supermodel and guess what; they are all beautiful. I didn’t need to be reminded about it repeatedly. The other characters evoked the same disinterest in me.
I wasn’t a fan of how narcolepsy was portrayed in the book. Narcolepsy is a severe neurological condition. There were points in the book where I felt the author was almost making fun of the disease. Again, another strike against the book.
I didn’t like how the author had Cat and her neurologist become romantically involved. It left a bad taste in my mouth even more so when it was revealed why he was pursuing Cat.
The end of the book left me feeling like I missed something. The author did do a great job of ending most storylines. There were several that were dropped. What also drove me nuts was what happened to Jan. I am not going to give anything away, but it was not realistic. At all.
I would give Disorder an Adult rating. There is sex. There is language. There is violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.
I would reread Disorder. I would recommend it to family and friends.

Too bad the author tried to fit too many storylines into one book. Nice, honest review Jolie,
Thank you Carla.
