Format: Hardcover
Pros: lots of tension, great pacing

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.

I am a YA book reviewer, and The Scorch Trials was one of the best teen books I've read in a long time. I found The Maze Runner to be a fascinating concept, as I am very interested in post-apocalyptic teen books. But The Scorch Trials surpassed the first book by miles. It was so intense and chaotic and wonderful. I purposely spent an entire month reading it just so that it wouldn't end. I absolutely can't wait for the third book to come out.

What you're in for: Phase 2. Craziness. Telepathy. Illusions. Confusion. Tattoos. Surprises. Suspense. Betrayal.

My Thoughts:
Okay, so much crazy sh*t happened in this book. It was pretty much non-stop action/adventure/absolute craziness. It seemed like almost every chapter ended with a mini cliffhanger! I'm not sure how James Dashner came up with this stuff. He must have a very creative mind.

I'm not going to say much at all about the story, because I don't want to ruin a single thing for you. But, there is just so much that goes on and so much that these poor characters have to go through in order to survive and make it to the end of Phase 2.

Why only 3/5 stars? I feel like we still don't have much more knowledge about what the heck is going on than we did after the first book. So, that was unsatisfying to me. I also felt that Thomas wasn't very likable at times in this book. I, honestly (and don't hate me for saying this), think that the movies might just be better than the books in this case. Which I have never run into before! This is just judging from me seeing the first movie, but not reading it, and reading the second book. So, of course, I can't say for sure until I see the second movie. But, I would say that the first movie was better than the second book.

I can't wait to get my hands on the third book. Especially with that ending! Another wtf moment! What's going to happen now? What could possibly be in store for Thomas and the others next?

Format: Hardcover
This book (book 2 in The Maze Runner trilogy) picks up right where The Maze Runner left off. As mentioned in my review of The Maze Runner, James Dashner is an amazing writer, and his writing remains up to snuff in this second installment. Once again the book opens with an intense and intriguing opening that immediately pulls the reader right into the story, but this time we are shoved into a room cramped with the surviving gladers, but we already know things are going to be bad.

"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...

I was very much affected by this book; I saw the movie the mazerunner and had to see what lie in wait for Thomas andTheresa although the movie deviated somewhat from the book as was expected.I got entrenched in the story although the writing at times was difficult to follow through because I identified so strongly with the gliders.I could not believe some of the struggles and manipulations they had to endure only to find out at the end that there was no cure.So of course I had to read the follow up book to keep on top of the next saga, very entertaining informative and hard to put down.
