The Death Cure by James Dashner










Book 3 (Book 1: The Maze Runner, Book 2: The Scorch Trials)

Novel Summation:

Thomas knows that Wicked can’t be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they’ve collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It’s up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn’t know is that something’s happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can’t believe a word of what Wicked says.
The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine. Will anyone survive the Death Cure.

My Thoughts:

I read this book awhile ago so this will be short. This was a really interesting read. The concept of the series is really interesting. The book gives us a look into the world outside the Maze once again but this time the setting is more populated. What bothered me about the book was that it didn’t end with us knowing exactly what happened with Thomas in the past. He chooses not to fully remember and you have to respect his reasoning but I am still very curious. Lots of familiar people return and some new ones appear. There isn’t really character develop but Thomas does grow a bit and the plot develops slightly; some insights are shown. As the book progressed the ending for me was very predictable but still interesting. I would recommend this series to people.

Future Books:

There is a prequel book to the series called The Kill Order and comes out August 14, 2012.
