Book Review: The Death Cure by James Dashner

Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Genre: Dystopia
Publisher: Random House
Source: Bought
Rating: 5.5 stars

Another series over. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner... I'm suffering from series withdrawal. ): Also, this review will be short since I don't want to give anything away. Don't read this unless you've read the first two books in the series!

The Gladers have gotten out of the Maze and out of the Scorch, past Grievers and Cranks, only to be trapped in WICKED headquarters. Rat Man is saying that the blueprint is almost finished, and that their memories must be restored but Thomas doesn't want them anywhere near his brain, not again. The Gladers will have to escape, but is the outside world any safer? And, what if Teresa is right, and WICKED is really good?

This book is riveting; fast-paced, action packed, and full of emotion. The suspense is incredible because no one, and I mean no one, is safe. It's all perfectly terrifying, and hauntingly possible because James Dashner has crafted a world that is so different, yet eerily similar to our own. The characters have grown so much since the first book and continue to do so as they're pushed to and past their limits.This book will definitely leave you thinking. I loved and hated every minute of The Death Cure because it was so amazing, and because I knew it would have to end.

Other Books in this Trilogy: The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials
What did you think of the ending? (No spoilers, for those who haven't read the book!) How much are you going to miss The Maze Runner?
