This book is not for me. If you like shooter games, you may enjoy it. I was intrigued by the first book, got skeptical in the second, and was mostly bored by the third.

If any of the characters developed, I did not notice. I found them as cardboard cutouts. I also found the reality of the world not plausible. There seemed an extreme lack of intelligence in the authority figures.

I expect more from books, especially ones with good reputation.

I'm also tired of writers who write these fatalistic books for teens. Why is there no one who can write a book about a post apocalyptic society that rises from the ashes to create something wonderful? Or why not write a book about saving the planet, before we get to the apocalypse? No wonder depression is sweeping the world when even fiction is painful to read.

I borrowed the audiobook from the Toronto Public Library.

I really enjoyed this third installment of The Maze Runner Series. It was satisfying and exciting. Like the other books, it was tough talking, action packed and full of mystery. Again, there are Cranks, who are people infected by the deadly Flare virus. I like this kind of take on zombies and the dilemmas dealing with them. The book started off fast and managed to give a lot of back story from the other books without seeming repetative or overly narrative.

Thomas grew in this book, though there were a few times where I thought he did reckless things just because he was not thinking properly. Maybe that makes him more human. There was one point I just wanted to yell at him to stop what he was doing. He gets faced with some tough decisions and not everything is completely rectified for him, which is interesting.

The friendships were done really well and were, for me, some of the best parts of the book.

There are so many juicy plot twists and moral issues that come up in this book that it keeps the reader turning pages. Then there are times when I felt that everything goes from bad to worse to even worse. Then, just for fun, even worse than that. Certainly, near the end of the book, I was rivited, waiting to see what would happen next. Some things also come full circle, which is quite satisfying and I have to say that I liked the ending, but won't say any more than that.

I would recommend this series for late middle school and young adult readers and think that it will especially appeal to boys.

HOLY SHUCK!!! This book is awesome!!! I got the book yesterday but thanks to darn things like work getting in the way I just finished it a day later. I could not put it down, 400 pages of suspense. Did Thomas get out of the white walls?, did they find the other Gladers? did Teresa stab him in the back AGAIN? is WICKED good? all while they have to fight with a city of Cranks with electric grenades, guns and hand to hand combat with the help of some old friends and new friends. Also having to fight with flare which leads to the Oh My God part of the book that made me to cry and throw the book across the room all at the same time but the story wasn't over. WICKED was still after them and Thomas had to decide if he was going to give in or to keep on fighting.

This final book in The Maze Runner trilogy picks up right where The Scorch Trials left off. Thomas is in a white padded room, contemplating something interesting...

"It was the smell that began to drive Thomas slightly mad. Not being alone for over three weeks. Not the white walls, ceiling and floor."

James Dashner definitely brought his A game back when writing The Death Cure. All the minor things that annoyed the heck out of me in The Scorch Trials was smoothed over by the fabulous writing and story-telling in this conclusion. It was an amazingly awesome wrap-up to this exciting and enjoyable series.

I don't want to give too much away, because I know nothing ruins my day more than stumbling across a nasty spoiler that drives me crazy for days on end...but I just have to say that I absolutely adore a writer who is not afraid to kill off main characters if and when it needs to be done. And to do it right! I mean, not just kill them to get a reaction, and not just for a matter of convenience sake, but because this character MUST die for things to be right with the world, and the story (if that even makes sense to you...it does to me...at least in my head...).

That comradeship that was built in The Maze Runner comes back into play in The Death Cure and you see, and feel, how important these relationships these characters have built with each other are, and how fragile they can become when push comes to shove. You care about these characters and what can, and does, happen to them. They are almost like family now!

The chapters, as always, were kept short, yet involved, which keeps the readers interested and coming back for more. Overall it was an amazing story that I am glad I got the opportunity to read and review. The ending cleared up almost all outstanding issues and I was really impressed with the series as a whole.

I recommend this book, and this series, to everyone!

Format: Paperback
The third and final book in "The Maze Runner" trilogy has us following Thomas and friends after they arrive back at WICKED headquarters. The Rat Man (Janson) has decided the trials are over and both groups of Gladers can get their memories back before everything continues. Thomas and a few others, have different plans, as they are not sure the actual "trials" have concluded and definitely don't trust WICKED yet.

This book seemed to cram a LITTLE too much in to too few pages. I understand that in this type book you probably don't want to write a Stephen King style "The Stand", but another hundred pages or so could have really given more, much needed info. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book as well, but would have been interested in more information.

Final Verdict: If you're read the previous two, then this is another MUST READ to finish out the story!
