The Death Cure is the third book in The Maze Runner trilogy, so if you haven't read The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials, I highly recommend you to leave this page now.
SUMMARY AND SPOILER-FREE REVIEW:
After surviving the maze and the terrifying scorch, the Gladers are almost complete with the trials. Thomas has nothing left, WICKED has taken it all from him. Now is the time to fight.
The truth will be terrifying. The time for lies is over.
Long before getting into the book I knew it would be hard to read certain things, so it took me a while until I decided to pick it up. I was kind of demotivated because I already knew what was going to happen... But I pushed myself, because I had loved The Maze Runner and enjoyed The Scorch Trials, so there was no way I could leave the trilogy just like that!
I went to the library and picked this book up. It took me a couple of weeks, though it's a super quick and fast-paced story. The action never stops, really. There are a lot of really great scenes and majestic plot twists that I would've love hadn't I been spoiled.
I've already said it and I will say it again: this trilogy has something addicting. You literally fly through it! And it's very original and fantastic!
It was very creepy, maybe not as much as the first one, but still. The setting of these novels are amazing, I really enjoy it. It's very complex and sometimes hard to understand, but it's totally cool.
It wasn't as good as The Maze Runner, at least for me, but it was better than The Scorch Trials. That makes me super excited about the movie! Literally can't wait to watch it!
I'm so glad I took some time after reading the second book in the trilogy, because otherwise I know I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much. It's really good, but exhausting as well.
The Death Cure is very emotional. I was on page 113 and already crying... Some things just hit me pretty hard. And I was so mad at myself for being spoiled that I didn't have time to be mad at James Dashner! That made me even more mad!
The characters were pretty confusing in this book. I still don't know where Theresa was standing during the last two books. Brenda was still pretty annoying... I actually wanted Thomas to stay single or end up with Newt,
and I know I'm not the only one.
In conclusion, The Maze Runner is such a great trilogy and though I'm not sure about the ending, I don't think there could have been a better one. Reading these three books has been a very exciting and wonderful experience, and they have become very special to me!
I will post a review on the movie once it comes out, so stay tuned!
