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 notice it.
Although this book was fast passed, a lot of it was filler and this book could really just have been shrunken into about 100 pages at the max.
I gave this book 2 stars only because James Dashner was able to create such real characters by giving them actual human qualities. This is mostly referring to Newt and Minho since they seemed the most real and fleshed out. This compared to other characters like Thomas who had about as much personality and emotion as a burnt piece of rat meat on a stick. He's also about as smart as that which I don't understand since all the Gladers were suppose to be extremely smart children who where put in the maze from the last book because of their high IQs.
Apart from the few inconsistencies in this book, the one thing that never made any sense to me was that if everyone in there is suppose to be named after super smart person (like Isaac Newton, etc), then who is Frypan named after?
If someone figures it out, please tell me.
“Anybody else wanna pee their pants and cry for mommy?”Thomas's innermost thoughts have this je ne sais quoi.
I felt her absence. It was like waking up one day with no teeth in your mouth..(Somebody, please, send help)

"That they were safe, that he and Teresa could get to know each other again. That life could be good."
"Oddly, the thing that stood out the most to Thomas was Teresa's last name."
"Thomas found himself hoping she was the Brenda girl Jorge had mentioned."
"Brenda didn't take her eyes off Thomas. As for him, he still felt the tingle that had shot through his entire body when she'd touched him with her lips."
"Something stirred inside him, mixed with guilt and longing for Teresa."
"Once again, Thomas felt a ridiculous surge of guilt like he was cheating on Teresa. He couldn't help that this girl was so touchy-feely."
WICKED is good. Nah.
“The betrayal meant he couldn't trust her anymore, and his heart told him he couldn't forgive her.”
“Anybody else wanna pee their pants and cry for mommy?”
“Can you do that?” Thomas asked.
“Kill someone three times.”
“I’d figure out a way.”
