The Death Cure (Book Review)

I just finished The Death Cure by James Dashner.


I started reading the first chapter and didn't come up for air until page 240. Then I dove right back, finishing the whole thing in one session.

In this final book in the Maze Runner trilogy, James has heightened everything: the tension, the stakes, the emotions, the sacrifices, the setting, everything. If you liked the first books, I think you'll love this one.

Some of you may recall my one-word review of The Scorch Trials. Why?!

Why had the world changed? Why were kids subjected to such callous tests? Why did so many people have to die? If you felt the same way, you'll be happy to know that this book has the answers.

On a personal note, I've been a Dashner fan for many years and I can't wait to see what amazing story he comes up with next. If you ever get a chance to take a class from him, or hear him speak, or watch him present at a school, do it. He's a lot of fun. The next best thing is following his blog or Twitter.

I just put my review of this book up this week - soooo good! I am a HUGE Dashner fan, if you can't tell from my blog, lol.

Ooh. This one sounds very intense. Very. Intense. Definitely something I'll have to read curled up in bed with a cup of hot cocoa!

Bethany - Your review was great.

Danyelle - If I had to pick one word to describe this book "intense" would be in the running. (Ha ha, get it? Running? Sorry.)
