Somebody, please, send help What the mess is happening to this plot Instead of a giant maze, we are faced with the zombie apocalypse and a desert WhiplashEssentially, we have a few hundred pages of running, panicking, poor decision making and filler I m absolutely torn as to whether I disliked the lazy writing or the shoe horned romanceLAZY WRITING Anyone else notice that every twist and turn plays perfectly into WICKED s Evil Grand Plan.But don t worry, whenever things become absolutely hopelessthere s convenient reemergence of essential memories so that they can continue along WICKED s path Anytime something inexplicable happens which happens a lot , Dashner throws out the either the memory wipe or the all knowing government excuse It s such a cop out.Honestly, Dashner keeps trying to make WICKED a thing but it just doesn t work for me I mean, how serious can I take an uber evil government when their grand scheme was to build a maze with slime monsters to view spoiler combat a disease hide spoiler It s like socks and sandals sometimes you just know when something ain t gonna work THE SHOE HORNED ROMANCE What in the world was Dashner thinking Teresa and Thomas have this little candle flame of a romance that s become a roaring bonfire poised to take down several city blocks When and where did this develop Oh right, they both have a vague memory ofbeforeback in WICKED

How can an author start a trilogy with such a fascinating world building, create endearing and strong characters and build up suspense and intrigue inside a complex and admirable plot and then write this That s right, I m extremely disappointed in Mr Dashner How could he make Thomas so annoyingly obsessed with that annoying girl he so annoyingly has telepathic conversations with I.did.not.care.I did not care about the romance I did not want any romance Honestly, I could say I adored the first book, but there s one thing that irked me until the last page and that is the existence of Teresa I always thought her incongruous presence disrupted the order of things in book one along with its atmosphere But, well, I was willing leave my differences aside, for the sake of Thomas.It did not last long How could she do that I m in much disapproval with the plot I don t care if there is a reason behind what happens, and what Teresa does I still think it wasn t right and that the man who wrote The Maze Runner could have come up with a less frustrating idea This feltlike a journey into nothingness that a concrete and eloquent plot It s impossible not to lose focus when reading this sequel I mean, I tried to, I tried very hard, but man does nothing of interest happen Unlike in the first book, Thomas doesn t slowly build relationships with others around him new people he meets he keeps to himself as much as he can, when Brenda and Teresa are not around and that just remove a lot of the charm I thought he once had The random people that cross his path are so dull and the dialogs even duller, therefore, my mind often simply diverged Because of that, very few secondary characters felt three dimensional to me And the setting how depressive it is an eight year old could ve imagined the pitiful setting And those monsters I really can t wait to see what they look like in the movie I m pretty sure I ll get a good laugh out of it But then again, the producers probably modified them, because come on Everyone loves Minho including myself but can I just mention how unsexy he is in this He s always shouting at people or stressing out about a thousand little things There is danger to freak over, that for sure, but couldn t the author offer us, from time to time, a side of him that s just lovely Sigh.There is some good in the story too such as the writing The writing is indeed nice.I m still going to read The Death Cure, seeing that I can t just NOT know how it ends.PS Thomas, please stop fainting We re not in the medieval ages and there aren t that many girls acknowledging your presence What the hell Even though I have sometimes enjoyed a book and not really liked the sequel, it s very rare that I would love one and absolutely hate the other I desperately tried to finish it but I was bored, I kept getting distracted by either my family, my cats or some random fluff on the carpet so I just skim read it to the end and gave myself a basic idea of what the conclusion was I truly loved The Maze Runner, even though quite a few people found it annoying particularly the pro What the hell Even though I have sometimes enjoyed a book and not really liked the sequel, it s very rare that I would love one and absolutely hate the other I desperately tried to finish it but I was bored, I kept getting distracted by either my family, my cats or some random fluff on the carpet so I just skim read it to the end and gave myself a basic idea of what the conclusion was I truly loved The Maze Runner, even though quite a few people found it annoying particularly the protagonist and not the best written book ever I found myself dragged into the maze with them, trying to solve the mystery why are they there How do they get out Can they get out And so on But this second in the trilogy was so disappointing Thomas was evenannoying, we d already lost the best character Chuck at the end of book one and the story just didn t grab me Maybe because it took me a while to get what they were meant to do cross a desert basically and when I got it I thought how lame.I just felt nothing for this novel, the characters, the plot I wanted it to end and that s never good Mostly I felt as if Dashner himself didn t know where he was going with it Where The Maze Runner was structured and clever, this story all felt a bit random and haphazard I found myself wishing that the author could have just rounded the first book off at the end and not bothered with a second installment it seemedlike a money making scheme than a contribution to the overall story Plus, Thomas must be both the most boring and unrealistic character ever.Another thing that annoyed me in both books, but stood outin this one because it didn t have a gripping plot to distract me from it, is that the author tells you everything A good author knows how to show the way things are, if that makes sense, and it makes for much better writing Dashner continually tells the reader what Thomas or whoever is feeling rather than letting them realise it for themselves instead of saying something along the lines of Thomas eyes grew cloudy with suppressed tears , he would instead say Thomas was really upset And, therefore, it simply did not flow But the worst thing for me is the constant inexplicable sensing going on Countless times in the novel Thomas just knows that something is dangerous or an individual can be trusted because he gets a feeling and just how the hell does he do that There is no rational explanation for it and the author doesn t seem to be developing some sixth sense storyline as of yet It all seems a bit ridiculous to me That s why I won t be reading The Death Cure, it s unfortunate because I was really looking forward to this sequel 3 starsI seriously don t know how to feel about this It s a total mess.I loved the first book, but I am not sure I like this one that much.I don t enjoy the writing style at all I didn t mind it in the first book, but in the second it just becameunbearable.I loved the characters in the first one, now I don t even care for them at all.Not sure if I will read the last one. Too many questions Too many shuck questions, all without answers And that about sums it up I swear, by now I m as confused and angry as Thomas and with all the shit WICKED pulled off I can t help but wonder if they might be past the gone already But I m getting ahead of myself so let s start at the beginning, right We ll make it easy and begin with the similarities between the movie and the book The characters There s a girl named Brenda There is some sort of wicked party no pun intToo many questions Too many shuck questions, all without answers And that about sums it up I swear, by now I m

right We ll make it easy and begin with the similarities between the movie and the book The characters There s a girl named Brenda There is some sort of wicked party no pun intended, seriously lolLet me think let me think tumbleweed moment Okay, I think that s it XDAs you can see there is basically nothing the movie and the book have in common and I m not entirely sure which one I likedI mean they are so different that you can t even compare them with each other For some reason I think that the movie made a whole lotsense though lol Don t get me wrong, I enjoyed the book, but damn did it leave me with many questions XD There happens so much and we never get a freaking explanation for anything that happens It s actually kinda frustrating and if James Dashner wrote this book solely to annoy us and to turn us all into big question marks Well, I guess he achieved his goal because I am one hell of a big question mark right now lol Well done, James, well done Newt burst out laughing You re one depressing piece of klunk, slinthead Nah, with all those corpses magically disappearing and the brick walls, I d say this is somethinglike the Maze Weird and impossible to explain The latest and greatest mystery Maybe our next test, who knows Whatever s going on, we ll have a chance, just like we did in the bloody Maze I guarantee it I have absolutely no clue, how Newt and Minho even managed to take all those happenings in stride, but I guess by now the weirdness of it all is just another part of their pretty messed up lives XD Maybe that s the purpose of Wicked To get them used to madness Seriously, by now this theory seems to be as good as any I could possibly come up with lol Thomas rolled his eyes I never said jack about me being braver than anybody I m just sick of hearing people s voices Yours included Minho snickered Slinthead, when you try to be mean, it s just freaking hilarious No wonder, Thomas is grouchy as hell If I d be in his shoes I d most certainly be testy too, especially after all the shit that went down at the end of this book I mean WHAT THE HELL To say nothing makes any sense any would be the understatement of the century And THIS is putting it lightly shakes head view spoiler And here is the moment I m starting to rant Why did they even have to run through the desert if they got no cure in the end Why did Jorge and Brenda appear all of a sudden and why is Brenda so touchy feely What s that entire thing with group A and B Why did Teresa have to betray Thomas like that And how can he even trust her after all that happened I mean she basically beat the living daylights out of him Who is Aris What s his purpose Evenimportant, why can Brenda talk telepathically too Why the freaking hell is Wicked doing all this shit Are they bored, crazy, stupid Why send monsters after them again WHAT IS THEIR FREAKING PURPOSE GAHHHH Okay, I m calm again lol But I m still as pissed as Thomas and I can totally understand that he doesn t want to have to do anything with Wicked right now Wicked is good As if lol hide spoilerHe didn t care about the others any The chaos around him seemed to siphon away his humanity, turn him into an animal All he wanted was to survive, make it to that building, get inside Live Gain another day I don t want to give away all too much of the plot so I think I ll leave it at that, but suffice it to say that this was one hell of a freaky, weird and crazy ride I m so confused and I have absolutely no clue whether I liked this book or not I read it pretty fast and it definitely had my attention, but all those questions and the fact that none of them were answered somehow left a bad taste in my mouth Based on my indecision I m giving this three stars and I really hope that the last book will makesense again lol Sigh I don t know how to write a review for this book without it sounding like a full out rant So I guess I ll just rant.First of all, I will admit that I only have myself to blame for picking up this audio book I wasn t a fan of the first one, and yet I still decided to give The Scorch Trials a try Somehow, this one was worse than the The Maze Runner How so Let me count the ways1

So I guess I ll just rant.First of all, I will admit that I only have myself to blame for picking up this audio book I wasn t a fan of the first one, and yet I still decided to give The Scorch Trials a try Somehow, this one was worse than the The Maze Runner How so Let me count the ways1 Character development James Dashner deserves an award for achieving the impossible by being the first author to establish negative character development I cared even less about the main characters than I did in the first book Everyone started to blend together and there was no one character with any distinguishing features Thomas Minho Newt were practically interchangeable, and I swear Teresa and Brenda were the same person Oh, I guess Jorge s dialogue was pretty memorable though in the sense that every sentence he said ended with the word muchacho I don t think it can get anystereotypical than that Putting the main characters aside, it seemed like Dashner just threw up his hands and said Oh, shuck it when it came to giving the other Gladers even a splash of personality view spoiler At the end of the book, when a bunch of the Gladers died didn t make it to the Safe Haven, Thomas thought something to the extent of, Oh well, I didn t know them very well anyway Even Thomas didn t care about these people hide spoiler 2 Writing style This is the type of book that convinces me anyone can get a book published Something about the way Dashner describes things is so offputting that it just makes me cringe The dialogue is predictable and not at all clever Emotions are for the most part relayed through phrases like Thomas was angry and Thomas didn t know why he was so frustrated Some of the descriptions were akin to a five year old s writing I distinctly remember one part where Thomas was taken aback at the sight of blood, and he called it crimson goo Let s all take a moment to reflect upon such inspired word choices.3 Storyline While the Scorch Trials are considerably action packed, they somehow don t feel substantial I couldn t put my finger on why this bothered me so much at first, but I think I ve figured it out now This book was like a YA and crappier version of the TV show LOST A series of mysterious events occur, monsters pop out of nowhere, the motives behind WICKED are unknown, memories are clouded, etc While that s all fine and dandy, the thing that s irksome is that there is no way every single one of these mysteries will be explained in the last book What was the purpose of the maze What are Grievers How do Thomas Teresa co have the ability to communicate telepathically How did WICKED choose what variables to include Why was it necessary for Thomas to be betrayed Okay, even if they re not answered in the second book fine I like suspense as much as the next person, and I enjoy guessing but if Dashner thinks he can build me up and not answer a SINGLE one of these questions, then he is delusional And if these questions ARE answered in the last book and I m totally wrong I apologize for jumping to conclusions, Mr Dashner Maybe I shouldn t be so prematurely irritated But I seriously doubt he ll deliver 4 This entire book is pointless As in, it literally contributes nothing to the plotline It doesn t feel as if any forward progress has been made I bet if I read The Maze Runner, skipped this book, and went straight into The Death Cure, I wouldn t be missing out The important outcomes of this book can be summarized in about three sentences I feel like Dashner wrote it just to make the series a trilogy.Anyway, sorry for being a rambling Debbie Downer I feel better for getting all that out though, whew unfortunately, I m just setting myself up forself inflicted torture because I m still going to read The Death Cure I ve already made it this far, so I owe it to myself to justify the pain of reading The Scorch Trials and at least finish the damn series I mean the third book can t be worse than this one right Right I AM SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW.I hate it when people do that Don t you just want to tell them, okay, calm down It s not like writing in caps is going to get your point across any further But I just had to, because my brain is bursting at the seams after reading The Scorch Trials.I love Thomas name I know my enthusiasm is quite unnecessary, but I ve never seen the name Thomas used for the protagonist of a book And a great one, too Now there are other references besides that darn Thomas the T I AM SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW.I hate it when people do that Don t you just want to tell them, okay, calm down It

There was something in the book about killing someone to get food I don t think I would kill for the next book in the series, because then I d be sent to the crazy place, but I still want it really really bad REALLY, REALLY BAD Now I m doing it againNow I can do my homework in peace Hopefully I ll probably surf the web for other people s thoughts on the ending insteadUntil The Death Cure.Want to
