The Death Cure

Warnings: emotions.

The trials are over. WICKED is planning to restore the survivors’ memories and complete the final cure for the Flare.
But Thomas has already remembered more than they think. And he knows WICKED can’t be trusted.
The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine. Will anyone survive the Death Cure?

Book 3 (FINAL) in the Maze Runner series by James Dashner.

I adored the first book and movie, and I also really liked the second book. But this book is pretty different to the two preceding it –  and I loved it.

Everything is quick, action on action and drama all the way through. The chapters are short (73 chapters and an Epilogue) and I think it adds to the effect of everything being done in a flash. It makes you feel like you’re going as quickly as the characters, and it helps the reader to become more immersed in the story.

Now, even though I was prepared, the emotions hit me. Hard. I was bawling my eyes out during some parts, and teary-eyed during most of the book. The new characters introduced and the old characters are still beautifully described, and the way Dashner ties up the loose ends left me feeling pretty satisfied at the end of the book.

If I have a complaint about this book – I can’t remember it. I just love it.

8.5/10 (minus .5 points b/c emotions k)
