Review | The Death Cure (Maze Runner #3) by James Dashner

The Death Cure by James Dashner book coverA series of chaotic incidents rather than a strong conclusion. A disappointing end to a promising series.

What it’s about:

They’ve escaped the Maze and made it across the Scorch. Now will the survivors get their memories back and help WICKED save mankind from a lethal pandemic?

Review | The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner

Lots of action, familiar characters and a strong narrative arc make The Scorch Trials another quick, entertaining read.

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner book coverSPOILER ALERT! As this is the second book in the series, it’s pretty hard to talk about it with spoiling the first book for anyone who hasn’t read it. Proceed with caution!

You can also read my review of The Maze Runner here.

What it’s about:

The maze in Book 1 was just the start. The survivors are now thrown into trial 2: a 100-mile trek across a post-apocalytic, sun-baked wasteland with all sort of nasties between them and a supposed “safe haven”. And all in the name of helping to produce a cure for a disease which threatens to wipe out mankind. Who will make it? And who the heck are WICKED, the organization behind the trials?

My take:

Review | The Maze Runner by James Dashner

While it failed to build emotional connections between this reader and its characters, The Maze Runner is an entertaining, quick read which is fine for whiling away a few hours.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner book coverWhat it’s about:

When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas can remember is his first name. But he’s not alone. He’s surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade, an encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible maze.

Like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know who or how they came to be there, or what’s happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything to find out.
