I loved this series and so the Pre-quel was a "must listen" for me. I don't regret listening at all and it was entertaining. But, I found the other bo..Show More »oks more interesting and more rich. Perhaps knowing where it is all going takes away the punch though. Overall, I do recommend this to fans, but don't listen to it first. Maybe its for "fans only".
Being 38 years old, I'm not exactly the author's primary target audience, nonetheless, I found this book a very fun listen. I found myself sitting in..Show More » my car for quite some time just to hear a bit more before having to go into work or into a store. The story flows well, without any real dragging portions.

This is definitely a book that will have you coming back for part two when it is released.

If you enjoyed The Maze Runner then you will love The Scorch Trials.
The narrator Mark Deakins does a great job; if you enjoyed him in The Maze Runner then you will enjoy him in The Scorch Trials. He brings life and personality to each individual character.
This book does contain more graphic content than The Maze Runner, if you did not like descriptions of the final battle between the Gladers and the Grievers then you will probably not enjoy portions of this book.
I enjoyed this book and cannot what for the third installment.
I gave it three stars because I like the first two books. Wow. This book was a snore. I really liked the first two books but this one lost me. By the ..Show More »end I had lost all investment in the characters. He could have killed them all off and I would not have cared.
