The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner #2)
Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.
There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.
The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has ...more

29 times this guy blacked out!! Out of 360 pages, Thomas left you with the cliff hanger of "and finally he slept" 29 times. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
If this didn't annoy you at all, reread this book (NOT RECOMMENDED) and realize that this dude spent most of his life passed out. Then try to tell me you didn't...more
What the hell? Even though I have sometimes enjoyed a book and not really liked the sequel, it's very rare that I would love one and absolutely hate the other. I desperately tried to finish it but I was bored, I kept getting distracted by either my family, my cats or some random fluff on the carpet... so I just skim-read it to the end and gave myself a basic idea of what the conclusion was.
I truly loved The Maze Runner, even though quite a few people found it annoying - particularly the protag ...more
I hate it when people do that. Don't you just want to tell them," okay, calm down. It's not like writing in caps is going to get your point across any further." But I just had to, because my brain is bursting at the seams after reading The Scorch Trials.
I love Thomas' name! I know my enthusiasm is quite unnecessary, but I've never seen the name Thomas used for the protagonist of a book. And a great one, too. Now there are other references besides that darn Thomas the T ...more
Not so. If anything, it only leaves the reader with even more questions. Practically nothing was resolved/explained from the first book, and James Dashner kept on piling on more and more plot twists––most of which were …we ...more
First of all, I will admit that I only have myself to blame for picking up this (audio)book. I wasn't a fan of the first one, and yet I still decided to give The Scorch Trials a try. Somehow, this one was worse than the The Maze Runner. How so? Let me count the ways...
1. Character development. James Dashner deserves an award for achieving the impossible by being the first au ...more
I was expecting things to finally clear up at the end of this book, instead I was left with even more questions than before...
Up until 80% I really enjoyed the story though, and I'll probably read book 3 as well, because I just have to know how all of this is going to play out.
What exactly happened here? In the first book, you were a huge Gary Stu, yes, but you also captured my heart with your endearing awkwardness. You were a confused little boy that awakened the mama bear in me and made me want to take you in my arms and squeeze you til all the insecurity is gone. For the Scorch Trials, I still wanted to play the mom, but the kind that whacks you a new one so you'll sort your shit out.
How the hell did you go from this:
No no, not the maze..but here..Welcome to the new Trial...
And Thomas, Remember..

James Dashner as once again created a none stop, action packed adventure that will blow your ever loving Shuck-Sticks-Cranked mind.
With new characters and all your favorite crazed-lingo-Gladers, comes a story of constant struggle to survive, a once again, Trial that are even more terrifying, dangerous and in ...more
Wow, The Scorch Trials was definitely a bizarre mind trip, and after everything that was revealed and unfolded, I can’t wait to see how this series ends.
This next installment to The Maze Runner picks up right where the first book left off. The Gladers have been rescued from The Maze, but their trials are far from over. They are immediately launched into a human nightmare where WICKED uses mental, physical, psychological and emotional experiments to test mind patterns ...more
I had mixed feelings to The Maze Runner and so it was with interest that I picked up its sequel to see how things continued. I was personally surprised and a little frustrated with this book. It seemed the minute I knew what was happening something completely changed in the story to make me unsure about anything. But I guess I could therefore associate with the character...
The whole point of this book is to continue the trials explored in the Maze Runner. Which were interesting from a t ...more
James Dashner is definitely in my Top Authors list! His books always leave an impact on me for some unidentified reason. I love this book to the point where it isn't healthy!
Once again James Dashner (or should I say Thomas) has taken me on an adventure that made me feel a great many emotions.
I admit to loving this book so much that I couldn't let go of it; causing me to read it entirly in one day with no breaks(I can't say my blatte ...more
This is my new favorite series. You ShouldRead The Maze Runner and this one!!!! You will not be sorry! DO IT!!!!
AHHHHH!!!!! Maybe after the shock wears off, I'll be able to write an actual review!
This book was very different from The Maze Runner, much less eerie and creepy mysterious, but what it lacks there, it more than makes up for in tension and action. We learn more about the world outside of the maze, and about the flares and the Flare, and we meet Cranks, which reminded me somewhat of the "zombies" suffering from Rage in 28 Days Later - OK, well, at least those past Gone.
We have some shifting o ...more
The effort that JD took at allowing the characters some personality didn’t go unnoticed. I found book two a bit more interesting and I think everyone will. ...more
Reading this actually feels a lot like watching the TV show Lost:
* Changing leaders
* Mysterious but intriguing clues to never-sure-what
My first impressions:
1) I WANT TO READ THE LAST BOOK NOW.
2) Not as good as the first, BUT it's still very good! (Really, how can it live up to the first?)
3) I found the end a bit anti-climatic.
5) Predictable at times, and a lot of unpredictable craziness.
6) Too much 'sleeping' and 'passing out'. T 0T But I suppose if that adds to the plot building, suspense and character backstory...sure why not.
7) Love Minho and Newt! Thomas, you're cool to ...more
« “-Algunas veces me pregunto... -murmuró Thomas.
-¿Te preguntas, qué?
-Si importa estar vivo. Si no sería mucho más facil estar muerto.”»
En The Scorch Trials pensamos que Thomas y sus compañeros se van a poder tomar un respiro y todas las “cositas” van a estar tranquilas pero…no. En este caso, van a desear poder volver al laberinto a que tener que enfrentarse a lo que se les propone. Pensaron que todo había terminado, pero esto recién comienza a terminar. Como prueba “final” de CRUEL, tienen q ...more
Wow... this was structured very differently than The Maze Runner was. I think that's the main reason so many people prefer the first book. It had a neat and tidy format, with a contained setting (the Glade) and a straight-forward "mystery". This, on the other hand, had no cohesive setting, and the characters' intentions changed from chapter to chapter.
In some ways, it reminded me of The Hunger Games. Not in quality, but in s ...more
I still don't know what the heck is going on...is Wicked good or bad? What the heck is their plan, and is there really anything in the world that could justify what they put these boys and girls through? I can't wrap my head around any such thing, I just can't. All I have to say is that Dashner better come up with a hel ...more
JUST GIVE ME THE ANSWERS, DANG IT. I NEED TO KNOW OR MY HEAD WILL EXPLODE.
I'm really very curious to how all these trials and experiments can find a cure for a disease. I suspect things aren't as they seem. (Ha. Aren't I clever?) But Teresa said, in book #1, that WICKED was good. But Teresa?! I mean, can we trust her? CAN WE TRU ...more
