Book Review: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

 If you read James Dashner's The Maze Runner, chances are you're dying to find out what's happening next in The Scorch Trials. If so, you need to read this book soon. Rather than finding answers, you may be asking more and more and more questions. Nothing is as it seems in this bizarre world.

If you thought that the Gladers were safe after leaving the maze, you're wrong. WICKED, the mysterious organization behind the maze and the scorch trials is upping the ante. Only a few will survive the next test. And this test is much harder than the first. This will test the boys and girl(s) mentally and physically. There are no safe spots, there is no way to escape the game.

Was it a little frustrating to have this book pile on more and more questions and offer no answers? I'm not going to lie, it was. For sure. But, I was not disinterested in the story once. And, I am looking forward to the next book in this series even more than I was this second installment.

So, I guess that I have to wait a whole year to find out the what's going on in this whacked-out world. I hope it's well worth the wait!


  1. Oh no! You were left with even more questions? I didn't think that was possible! Nonetheless, I must read this one ASAP! Great review!

  2. I don't know why I didn't enjoy the Maze Runner. I think I don't like any book with machine contraptions!!

  3. I cannot wait to read this book. The end of The Maze Runner was such a hook for this book! So glad to hear you like it even if you need things answered yet!

  4. Ah! I hate lingering questions, but I did love TMR. Glad it was an interesting read :D
