[Book Review] - The Death Cure by James Dashner

Title: The Death Cure
   Author: James Dashner
   Series: #3 - The Maze Runner
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: October 11th, 2011
   My Rating: 4.0 out of 5.0

     Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test.

      What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says.

      The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine.

      Will anyone survive the Death Cure?

My Review:

     I am mixed about this, there were parts of this book that blew everything open and made my eyes wide as the series concluded in a grand finale. However, there were parts of this book that I wanted to slap Thomas and Brenda both, Teresa's change and need to prove herself to Thomas after what she did in The Scorch Trials was almost sickening, but I still felt kind of sorry for her.

     Anyways to the bread and butter, I did enjoy this book a lot. I loved the finale and enjoyed everything up to the very end. How the series conclude I didn't quite get, it's not that I didn't understand it; more of I don't think it was completely believable. It's a slap in the face, WICKED wins again. As well, there was a huge lack of emotion at the end, there was no joy, no sense of victory which also aided to this ultimate depression of an ending.

     I was extremely happy with this new world, the complete reveal of Wicked and the real snow capped mountain/forest landscape and city. I enjoyed the change of pace, as well it was almost nice to not have to worry about the whole games taking place during the whole series of the book, but the real question I asked myself when I finished was it? I mean could the trials be almost the same as everyday life? I mean the reveal of the Cranks and what they were capable of, and how they were spreading everywhere, and slowly taking over humanity was terrifying, but at the same time brought the games to real life.

     Now the one thing I did miss, and I wish it was there really. I wanted to know what Thomas was like before the wipe and what made him believe this would be a good idea? Why did he begin the Maze Trials and whatnot? I guess we'll all have to wait until Kill Order for that reveal, I can't wait either!
