THE SERIES – THE MAZE RUNNER
2- THE SCORCH TRIALS
Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.
Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.
There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.
The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.
My Thoughts —
You should check my past review to know my thoughts on the previous part of the series. I started this part late last night and because I knew today would be a busy day, I slept early.
Started it again in the morning and then continued till breakfast. This story is not something you want to read while chewing your cereals.
Nope, it isn’t. Not if you want the cereal back on your bowl.
I will first start with the rating – 5 STARS
This book is especially for the fiction fans (Hunger Games, Divergent,etc)
Thomas was brave in the last part, in this one, he is ready to help whenever, whoever and however possible. Newt, Winston, Minho, Teresa are playing the second important parts.
THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE, SO DON’T EXPECT A FAIRYTALE BREWING ANYWHERE. THE BOYS ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR SURVIVAL. THEY CAN DO WITHOUT ADDED PRESSURE OF LOVE.
Waiting for the movie to come out in theatres in my country.
It’s locked,” he muttered when he finally gave up, his arms falling weakly to his sides.
“Really, genius?” Minho said, his powerful arms folded and tensed, veins bulging all over the place. Thomas thought for a split second he could actually see the blood pumping through them. “No wonder you were named after Isaac Newton—such an amazing ability to think.”
Minho pointed at the screaming, bloody woman. “That’s what they keep calling themselves. Haven’t you heard it?”
“I don’t care if you call ’em pussy willows,” Newt snapped. “Find me something to break through this stupid door!”
I am quite upset to find all this hilarious …I feel like a sadist… But well, they are making me laugh, not my fault.
Pg 15 – Not feeling so hilarious now…I feel horrified.
“What’s going on?” Newt asked, looking back and forth between Thomas and Aris. “Why’re you guys looking at each other like you just fell in love?”
Pg 112 – I am suspicious about this Brenda girl.
Pg 114 – Its getting scary
The story is completely unpredictable. Anything can happen anytime, people betray, are betrayed, beaten, and killed. Aris and Brenda are new characters. There are more but I found them important enough to mention.
And some dreams of Thomas’s past.
I am exhausted, it wasn’t lengthy but my eyes aren’t cooperating anymore.
Also, I am very excited about the third part of the book. I really like Thomas.
May the peace be upon you, Thomas
