Now THIS book really got rolling on the story! I loved every second of it and really was bummed when it ended (at least I still had the 3rd to read?!). This book catches you from the start and never lets down. The way the story progresses and allows the reader to get more involved in each separate character was something I felt lacked in the first book. This one gave not only more of Thomas' backstory, but also of many of the other gladers as well. The twists and turns often can been seen coming, but instead of what you THINK is going to happen, something else does!
Final Verdict: A MUST READ! If you liked the first, you should DEFINITELY love this one!
"She spoke to him before the world fell apart."
I felt the pacing was a bit off with this novel. I was often left wondering what was really going on, why they were where they were, and what everything meant. It felt a little slapped together to be honest. It wasn't nearly as scary and creepy as The Maze Runner, and the whole back and forth thing with Theresa was just plain annoying.
Thomas felt completely detached from the rest of the group, which I am sure was part of the point, but it just seemed like all those relationships that were built up in The Maze Runner didn't matter at all and were a waste of space. I hope things come together better in The Death Cure.
Another thing that really annoyed me was the whole thing where Thomas would meet someone new, debate whether he should basically tell them his whole life story, then decide he either can trust them or has no other choice, and then those characters have no real main part in the book. Again it just feels like filler...and annoying filler at that...
I guess it just felt like overall there wasn't enough surprises to keep my interest, especially since I knew there would be one more book. I find most trilogies tend to slack in the second book...Read more ›
Cons: while I still didn't connect with any of the boys, I didn't find them as annoying as I did in the first book
Picking up directly where The Maze Runner left off, The Scorch Trials doesn't let the Gladers relax much before the next round of horrors begins.
While you find out a bit more of the mystery surrounding the boys - including the fact that there was a similar experiment for girls - a lot of mysteries remain at the end of the book.
Look forward to a wild ride of one bad thing followed by another.
This book is definitely better than the first one. All of my complaints for it were dealt with/not applicable here. The pacing is good, there's some downtime to appreciate the situation the boys are in but not enough to feel bored. There's little character development, but the book takes place over two weeks so that's to be expected. And what development there is, follows logically from the events of the story.
While I felt teens would enjoy the first book better than adults, the sequel is a fantastic book for readers of all ages.
Can't wait for the third, when I hope to learn what's really going on with WICKED.
The Scorch Trials is the second book in the Maze Runner series. While it is not as good as the first installment, it is still a lot of fun to read. The story is fast-paced and entertaining, even though I found that the walk in the desert — the Scorch — was a bit long. The world the Gladers discover outside of the Maze is terrifying, all the more so because it could be real: the sun is so hot it kills, and most of the human race is infected by the Flare. Little by little, Thomas starts to recover his memories, and what he finds out seems to suggest that he was deeply involved in the creation of the Maze and was an active member of WICKED, the organization behind the experiment.
The book is really different from the movie though, partly because Thomas and Teresa can communicate telepathically in the novel and not in the film. But there are other changes too that I won’t get into because I don’t want to spoil the story. Therefore, readers might be disappointed by the adaptation. The movie will be out on DVD on December 15, 2015. So you will be able to judge for yourself.
