Book Review: The Maze Runner Trilogy

maze runnerAnother trilogy done and done! My goal this year is to read 50 books. With a wedding and cross country move coming up, we’ll see how that goes..but that’s the goal!

I just finished the Maze Runner series, which for those of you who don’t know, the Maze Runner movie will be coming out sometime this year. Which left me a little like this.
Yeah. So without further ado:

Maze Runner: I felt this was the best of all the books – typical trilogy style, it’s tough to top #1. My favorite part of the book was discovering things along with the characters. Basically, there’s a bunch of boys in this Glade, with high walls and monsters outside. Oh, and their memories have been wiped, so they don’t know why they’re there, or how to escape. Enter Thomas, our hero, who seems to have some forgotten connection to the maze creators. The book moves fast and you get caught up in the character development quickly. Before you know it, you’re downloading the next one on amazon. Which brings us to;

The Scorch Trials: Not gonna lie, this one was a bit slow at times for me. The boys are out of the Glade, yet find themselves in another trial – this time in a desert wasteland. Some good plot twists happen at times, some deep betrayal and all. But overall this one seemed to just set up the final book.

The Death Cure: This on picked up again for sure. With characters understanding more and more, some even getting their full memories back, the remaining gladers must find a way to stop WICKED (read the book, you’ll get it) once and for all. But it turns darker than they could have thought, and there are some great and tragic surprises along the way.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend this series. The characters are well developed, showing both their strengths and weaknesses at times, which makes them more relatable.

That’s all for now!
