The Death Cure by James Dashner
The Death Cure (Maze Runner, #3)

This was typical of the final book in a YA trilogy. The first book was really solid but after that it was all downhill culminating in this painful final book. The ending did tie everything together well but the 300 odd pages before were meh.

After IQ84, I was really hoping Murakami had found his mojo and while Colorless started well, it really dragged in the second half and the end was unimpressive. Are Murakami's best days behind us?
