Death Cure- James Dashner

Written By: Kellie - Jan• 25•12

Synopsis: 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.

Review: I really wanted to like this book. I tried, I swear I did. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and was excited to see how everything came together. Maybe I hyped it up too much in my head, but this book was a disappointment.

Not only did I have trouble really getting into it due to a bit of a mish-mashed plot, but I didn’t feel like I got nearly the amount of answers I had been hoping for. Early on, Thomas passes up the opportunity to get some real answers, which I only found to be mildly believable and insurmountably frustrating. Also, the ending was kind of a let down. Not a cliffhanger, but certainly a little anti-climactic. There was no big hurrah moment, and I was left feeling a little like it had all been for nothing.

Not to say this book was a total waste of time. It was very cool to see the series come full circle (we get to go back to the Maze for a brief visit), and catch up with some old characters. Plus, I always love the lingo that this series has created as well as the band of brothers type feeling Thomas has with his fellow Gladers.

If you’ve read the first two books in this series, then it’s prrobbbably worth finishing it off by reading The Death Cure but I fear this final book may have ruined the entire series’s rereadability for me, so go in with caution.
