Publisher's Summary

Maze Runner 3: The Trials are over. WICKED have collected all the information they can. Now it's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. But something has happened that no one at WICKED has foreseen: Thomas has remembered more than they think. And he knows WICKED can't be trusted....

The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. With the Gladers divided, can they all make it?

    "A brilliant and gripping story line!"

    Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narration. The writer could have used more descriptive and effective language and grammar, but overall the three books have you on the edge of your seat and enthralled.

    "Storyline a little weak"

    I found the two first books with a lot of unanswered questions, and I don't feel like the this book answered them all. But overall I don't regret buying the book, as it was almost as good as the two first books.

    "Loved it. The best of the series."

    Without a doubt this was the best book in the series. It had everything you could want in a truly great and unique story and for once a happy ending. Gotta love a happy ending. To many stories these days have endings that leave me wandering why an earth I read books any more. It's for books like this that I continue to read.

    "Fun but a little vague"


    The trials are over - or are they? WICKED wants to promote the surviving Gladers from guinea pigs to partners in the search to find a cure for the deadly flare. The Gladers are divided with many, Thomas included, struggling to believe that this really is the end. Are WICKED’s promises just another variable in the process and is the cure really within their grasp?

    After the build up and intense action of the last two novels, I feel a little let-down with this installment. For at least three quarters of the book, I felt that there was no real purpose behind what the characters are doing. They had no plans and just seemed to be running around wherever chance would take them. The first two books in the series had clear objectives, and the characters James Dashner created were so driven, it felt very out of place to have them just going with the flow.

    Some of the plot points also seemed so inconsistent. WICKED is such a technologically advanced entity, yet they don’t have cameras in the rooms and a bunch of kids can overpower an entire battalion of security guards? They don’t go after Thomas, even though they know where he is and they believe that the entire world’s fate depends on him? Some of the scenes also seemed cliched and contrived, especially those scenes with the ‘rat man’. I also felt that the novel lacked proper closure on some key points.

    The ending was unexpected but satisfying. I love that Dashner didn’t go with the obvious ending. There was a bit of a moral story in this series, which I enjoyed, and the end of the novel was fast-paced, imaginative and action-packed. Overall, still a fun series.

    "Maze runner death cure - a cure for reason"
    What disappointed you about The Death Cure?

    immaturity of the story and plot


    What was most disappointing about James Dashner’s story?

    his lack of coherent thought


    What didn’t you like about Mark Deakins’s performance?

    it was impossible to enjoy Deakin's performance as getting through the story was agony


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Death Cure?

    book 2 and 3 can't be salvaged though book 3 is far worse


    Any additional comments?

    this book can only be appreciated by thoughtless teenagers and retarded adults. read the 3 books to know how it would all end. though the journey was harrowing and i had to take many long breaks before i could continue or finish the books the end only left a bad taste in my mouth.

    "Walk away, pretend this book just doesn't exist !!!"

    This book was nowhere near as good as the first or even second book and was a sucky ending to what was a genuinely a good story in the first book. I don't wanna spoil the end for you, so I advise you not to read this book, you are better off imagining your own ending and savouring the mystery, than reading this and wishing you hadn't.

    I suggest the author should release a new 4th book which entirely replaces the 3rd book and all the events in it and then no one mentions the third book ever again.

    "Good finish"

    I felt the story lost its power after The Maze Runner and it carried on mainly to fill in plot holes and to try and finish off some explanations. That being said the two main characters Thomas and Minho were fairly compelling although many of the other characters such as Brenda and Teresa became more two dimensional. I enjoyed the story overall but the first book was so good, the second books struggled to compare.

    A lot of the plot was left ignored, brushed over or simplified. Very unsatisfying, a little lost and a real let down.

    "brilliant book"

    this was a brilliant book with action and had a great story line. This book is the 3rd book in the maze runner series and is awesome. I would recommend this book to people who are 13+ as it has some violence in the book and will probably scare children below this age.

    The subjects gat a choice whether they want there memorys back, But will they choose to get them back? They find out who is imune to the flair and who isn't. Three gladers decide to escape from wicked with inside help. But will they be leaving there friends behind or will they be the ones who were left behind? Can they survive the real world? They must help the right arm with an old enemy in the group. with a brilliant plan but will they be able to get rid of wicked once and for all? with a brilliant plan or will the plan backfire and make them fight against the clock to save everyone in time and themselves. hear as some of your faveroute characters fall and others stand tall and try there best to survive
