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

My Copy: Paperback, 325 pages
Publication Date: October 11, 2011
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Source: Library

It’s the end of the line.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.

Will anyone survive?

What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.

The truth will be terrifying.

Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.

The time for lies is over.

My Review

What you’re in for: Mysterious. Distrust. Confusion. Action. Cranks.

My Thoughts:
What a disappointing ending! The ending makes the whole series, the whole freaking story pointless. I mean, really. Read it and you will see. It’s so frustrating to get to the end of this series and feel this way: like I just wasted my time reading these books. It was a pointless story and so many things were never explained!

Okay, now that that rant is over… The book as a whole was blah. It had a completely different feel to it from the other books. I, honestly, wasn’t all that captivated by the story in this book. It just didn’t measure up to the story of the first two books.

I thought Thomas was very annoying throughout the book. His thought processes and choices and logic just drove me crazy.

The characters were not developed enough, particularly Brenda and Jorge. I hate how we never got any of the characters’ pasts explained. Why not? Isn’t that the whole point of a final book of a serious? To resolve the story and explain everything? Argh! Neither of those happened fully in this book! I am so frustrated!!!
