Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Pretty solid. Downsides for me were the hokey dialogue, everyone except Four having the same humor, and an overarching theme about a past character that weighs too heavily where the characters can't seem to let it go for like 400 pages even though th ...more

I don't know... Brisk read but this one felt like one big setup to the next book. Almost feels inconsequential. Feels like it's missing a satisfying book Act Three leaving off with a television-like cliffhanger to the next episode.

The hot and heavy parts are indeed what they are. The rest of the book is half-baked.

The Death Cure by James Dashner

Way better than the Scorch Trials simply for the fact that the first few pages answered many mysteries than book 2 did in its entire run. Book 2 read to me as filler and while this one is great at revealing all the answers, I'm not sure if it capture ...more
