Neat Ideas, Great Performance by the reader.
Redundant writing, not enough visual descriptions
Very good performance*
Yes, but not whole heartildly
The main character re-iterated his story like 4-5 times in this! How many times can you have a scene of the main character explaining himself, and of course, have the listener believe him? Re-title this one (main character explains himself to everyone he meets, and travels through a desert)
Still a neat listen, the reader makes it worth while
I couldn't get past the endless time in the desert! Ughh. Everyone keeps telling me that it gets better from there, but I couldn't do it.
Ex-military high school math teacher.
The new locations, and the global view. It expanded the series and provided some needed depth.
Hunger Games, and the movie Total Recall.
The betrayal of certain characters and the resilance of the characters
Need to read the first book in the series to understand this one.
Started out where I didn't like it but listen to it all and ended up liking the ending and now listening to book 3
This book had me riveted. I don't know how many parking lots I sat in for half an hour before going in to the store/bank/etc. because I wanted to listen for just a minute longer. The gladers go through so much in the book. Just when you think there is a pause, something new is thrown at them, and I'd think "oh no...not again!", which I'm sure is how you are supposed to feel...as overwhelmed as Thomas and the boys. Great story, and even though the narration can be a little flat at times, Mark Deakins really does an amazing job bringing the characters alive through dialogue. Loved it!
Again the book keeps a reader involved with lots of action and hope of resolve. but again, that resolve does not come. only other complaint is his emotional/ non logical thinking at the end that is not consistant with his rational thinking throughout the rest of the book. if i wanted to be inside the head of a teenage girl, id read twilight.
Say something about yourself!
Excellent second book in the series. Great characters. Can't wait for book three.
Audio books are my new favorite thing, I'm catching up on so many books. If you know any good dystopia novels, please recommend them to me!
I actually think I liked this book better than the first. Not that the first was bad, but I just felt this one was really exciting and had a little more depth. I didn't feel like I was missing so much information like I felt at times while listening to the first book. Again Mark Deakins did a great job reading this book, I was really impressed. Excited to listen to the third book!
Great trilogy. Really enjoyed the storyline and characters. Mark Deakins, the reader, uses really good voice inflection and makes the characters come to life. Highly reccomened for all you shuck faces out there!
O.K. So, the beginning of the book had me worried. It felt like Dashner was trying way too hard to make it action packed and mysterious. It was just too much too fast, but once the story slowed down a bit, everything that made "The Maze Runner" great reappeared. It's not quite as good as the first book, but still a quality story full of questions. I can only hope that after all this build up the third book is a satisfying ending that supplies some answers.
