This book is the 2nd in a series so DON’T READ the review unless you’ve read the first book. Even the character names can giveaway who lived or died in the first book. You’ve been warned.
Read my review for book 1: The Maze Runner
This is one exciting book. I didn’t know who to trust or what to expect. I constantly tried to take all the clues and make sense of what was going to happen!! By the end of the book I still didn’t have a clue what would happen in the 3rd and final book.
Thomas is a great character. He does what it takes to survive and keep his friends alive. He’s the kind of guy you’d want as a friend and leader. Thomas has a friend named Minho who I love! He seriously cracks me up. I love his bluntness. Minho’s a tough and light-hearted guy trying to get through these horrific circumstances. He seriously makes me laugh out loud. Newt is another friend of Thomas’s that I think is awesome!
I definitely cringed and felt sick throughout the tense moments. I won’t say anymore because no one wants their read spoiled. Check My Ratings at the end of this post to see more details.
I can’t wait to read the 3rd book. I should be starting it very soon! As soon as my husband finishes it. Since he introduced me to the series he gets first dips on the next book in the series. That’s our little deal.
