Gripping sequel and another amazing narration by Mark Deakins!!! Going to start the third book right away can't wait one minute.
Once again I will say, I'm BLOWN AWAY by the fact that there is not even an OUNCE of similarity between the Scorch Trial movie (which is all I had to go by up til now) and what I just finished listening to from the actual book!!!! Did James Dashner REALLY sign off on the final script for the movie?!! Did he just sell the rights off and had no say at all about what went into the "Hollywood" version of his amazing book?! I'm baffled at how the movie is not even CLOSE to having the same storyline as the book!! Thank God I took time to do the "audible" version of the book, because it moved me in ways that the movie couldn't dream of doing. Wow......
this book was amazing!!!!! the narrator was awesome!! I almost klunked my pants when that shank Teresa did something!! (No Spoilers) Thomas was as cute as ever!!! Definetly purchasing the next book!!!!!!
two completely different narratives. it is interesting to listen to this one, but the film adaptation brings more action and consistency to the story it is worth reading/listening
Story: I like the first book and I was willing to listen to the next book before the movie came out. I found it on par with the first book, no more or less than. The same about the second movie though they condensed and changed some of the characters to meet reel run time limitation. In addition, I felt that some of book events and characters were not quite believable. But then, I believe the author wanted to leave doubt about everyone in the book for suspense.
