Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.
In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.
Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated - and with it, order - and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim... and meal.
The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

This book was probably to worst out of The Maze Runner series. I found it dragged at parts and was kind of slow to get into. Specifically as they were walking through the town, I just thought it was kind of boring. But, with that being said, there was some critical characters introduced and luckily the story picks up toward the end. I also didn't like the story line for Theresa in this book; I dont like her being the "bad guy". But overall, it wasnt a terrible book, just not the best of the three.
I finined the first book and watched the movie and went straight to this one
It was definitely a great book (coming from a person who hates reading) you will get sucked into the book, every chapter leaves a cliff hanger.
I would totally recommend the book!!!!!!
Finished the book in 2 days and leaves you with suspense wanting to know what happens next. Can't wait to listen to the final book to know what all the crazy obstacles were for. Loved how the narrator made every character stand out by changing his voice for them. Definitely a must read but make sure you don't have anything important to do the next say because once you start listening it's hard to put it down.
If you've read the first book leave this and the next book alone they are both a waste of time the trilogy itself is not worth it the ending is very predictable and very bland. There is no plot twist, not worth the time.
