Review: The Death Cure by James Dashner

I just finished listening to the Death Cure by James Dashner on CD. It's the last book in the Maze Runner series. This book had a lot of action, (which I enjoy)  but less humor than the others, (The humor has been one of my favorite things about the books). The characters escape from Wicked and run around the city fighting cranks and citizens and looking to join up with the Right Arm and defeat Wicked. I wanted to cry when something bad happens to one of my favorite characters, but James does a nice job resolving and ending the series without wrapping up everything in a nice, neat package with a pretty bow, so the ending is satisfying and believable—and leaves room for more? The series is one of my favorites and I look forward to the Maze Runner movie coming out.


Book 3: The Death Cure



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. Will anyone survive the Death Cure.

  1. Really? I had no idea there would be a movie! I *almost* read the Maze Runner, but then someone told me there wasn't any romance whatsoever...and then that's why I didn't read it. But I'm still curious about it. :) I guess that when I have time I will read it someday! Thanks for the review! :D

  3. And romance has WHAT to do with whether it's a good story?

    Your review makes me want to read it, which is what good reviews do.

    1. The series does have a lot of killing in it, just to warn you.
