Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials
Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials | James Dashner
Thomas was sure that escape from the maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to. The earth is a wasteland. Government and order have disintegrated and now Cranks, people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim...and meal.Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED? The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner.

Fantastic book! This book is about a group of kids, who after escaping a gigantic maze in the first book, end up in the real world, which has been affected by the sun so greatly that most of the world is inhabitable. On top of all this, they struggle against a deadly virus called the flair. They meet all kinds of new people and both make/lose friends along the way. A very good book and would very much so recommend if you like fantasy books!

jp.vandendungen The point of view in this book is set in first person, from the eyes of Thomas, the main character. We know this because the author often uses phrases such as me or I. He also quite often shows Thomas‘s thoughts, as a way to both establish the Thomas thinks, and this true intentions throughout the book. 8mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done JP! I would agree, this is a great series but I found the books after book one to be less enjoyable myself! I was just missing the recommendation. 5/6 8mo

Up and out for a cycle early this morning so I could read this book on a blanket in Stanley Park. It had been too long.

mandarchy Ah! Say hi to the squirrels. I'm hoping this pandemic ends soon so I can visit my nephew. It's been a long time since I've been to that park. He lives near there. 1y

Spectacular, I loved this book! Its about how when Thomas and his friends get transported to The Scorch, which is super hot btw, they have to get through a town full of people who have a disease which makes them inhumane. They also have to get passed another group, who went through the same thing as them, except only girls. They‘re sent to kill Thomas, but, and both groups are promised a safe haven, and no more trials if they make it. 😍

I forgot to post but I finished this book a few weeks ago and I really liked it. I think that the author has written with a lot of detail which made me feel as if I was in the book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A thrilling sequel to the Maze Runner! The slang uses by the teens still annoyed me, but I got used to it. I loved the scene with the nose-eating Cranks! I don't really enjoy the writing style of YA-books, but the story was very nice!

So far we know there is a group of boys stuck in a mysterious room surrounded by zombie like characters called cranks. The boys soon discover that there isn‘t anymore bodies in the room. Everything has been cleaned and the scent is also gone. Just in 20 minutes of them being in the smaller room with Aris. Minho, one of the main leaders of the group find that Aris‘ title on his neck has changed to the partner. So with everything being cleaned and

chase.mccuaig Ari‘s title being changed it all happened in 20 minutes of them being in the room. This book is definitely a pick in my books. It is great due to the constant suspense and action. I would say it is a solid 9/10. The POV of the novel is from Thomas and it is a first person view. It is established through us seeing his problems and worries 2y

As the second book of The Maze Runner series The Scorch Trials didn't disappoint. It follows the Gladers, Thomas, and a couple other characters they meet along the way through the next set of trials. I really enjoyed it but have to admit I'm not a fan of the slang language of the characters. It makes it not flow as well while reading but I get why it's there. Now on to book three!

The Scorch Trials starts us off with many teen boys in a room. Suddenly there are these creatures called cranks. These cranks are like zombies for a better reference. These cranks are outside the room. They are trying to get in the room and get the boys but there are bars on the windows so no one can get in or out. For the boys there are two doors, one is locked and the other is a bathroom with no other exits. One of the boys breaks open the lock

chase.mccuaig One of the boys breaks open the locked door with a fire extinguisher that they found in the large room. With those cranks yelling and trying to get in the are free of the room they were trapped in. The room they go into smells awful and is pitch black. Thomas who is our main protagonist in our group knocks into something. The lights were later turned on and they were hanging bodies. (Not het finished the book) 2y
chase.mccuaig If you like books that contain suspense and action then you should give The Scorch Trials a try. 2y
chase.mccuaig A motif in this book would be Thomas and Theresa and their abilities to connect telepathically. They are trying to find each other in the beginning and this creates lots of suspense because Theresa doesn‘t answer to Thomas and we fear that she is dead because she is not with the boys. 2y
MissYaremcio Nice review Chase! Such a great series! 6/6 2y

The plot twists in this were so unexpected, the pace was so fast, and something was always happening. The mystery of WICKED still remains, and questions still linger. I loved the action in this, the suspense and the overall world building/ dystopian feel. The characters were still great, and I loved their dynamics, their friendships are goals! I cannot wait to read the third one, and finally find out what happens, to get answers. And that ending!

A great sequel although didn‘t excite me as much as The Maze Runner , some really strange goings on!! Hoping things start to make a bit more sense in The Death Cure.

Started watching the movie last night and it is completely different!! So if you have watched the films it won‘t spoil the book.

I rate this book a 9/10 because it continued the story well and helped to explain things. However, at one point I wasn't satisfied with a couple things the characters confessed that completely changed the story, so that was a little disappointing. Other than that, I loved the new characters and the resolution to the story was brilliant.

First finish for the month of November. Book # 20/24 for the #goodreadschallenge . I‘m terrible at reviews, so bare with me. This didn‘t grab me quite to the extent that The Maze Runner did, but it was still worth ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. And apparently there is a #readathon going on this weekend in Litsy land, so I‘m using that, as well as one on Facebook, as motivation to get as much reading done as possible! #24B4Monday #LitsyPartyOfOne

Did not get in the amount of reading today that I thought I was going to. I like the book, I‘m just having a hard time with being motivated to pick it up. I‘m really wanting something more light hearted at the moment, but The Scorch Trials is a library book and I feel like I need to get it finished before I move on to something else.

My current read. I‘m not doing a readathon currently, so I‘ve been a bit slower in getting through this one vs The Maze Runner. And can I say how much I love the #libbyapp and the fact that I can read the library books on my #kindlepaperwhite !! My eyes are much happier with me. 👀

I love how this book keeps you on your toes with the flare, WICKED, rebel group etc. As an eighth grader it can be tough to find a book topic that is interesting, but the Scorch Trials and dystopia books in general is my favorite genre.

I loved this book. In my opinion it was the best one out of the trilogy, Maze Runner. The plot is full of twists and turns, and you don‘t even have time to take a breath. The characters are unique, and the novel does not shy away from the concept of death, like many dystopian novels do, only killing off a couple unimportant characters. It takes the average reader roughly 15 hours to read the whole trilogy.
