I don't think I got even halfway through this book. weak characters, flimsy plot, and too many flaws or convenience's with the time travel aspect. very poorly put together over all.

if Jim Bond would have tried to sound less like a robot I would have really enjoyed this book. I listened at 120% just to get through it faster in hopes that the narrator is better in the next book.

this book definitely doesn't take long to grab you and pull you in! The 2 main characters are well written and the interaction between them is charming.
I read this and the next 2 books before I joined audible so I already knew I would like the storyline but the narrator does an excellent job!

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn't done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch. The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them. There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers' destruction—and they're determined to survive. Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.

overall I enjoyed the Maze Runner series. this book however was my least favorite. it felt as if Dashner was just plodding through this one to get to Death Cure. I'm glad I read it in the end... it introduced a few new characters like Rat Man and a few others that are involved in Death Cure.
The relationship between Tom and the Gladers kinda falls away in this book which is disappointing.
If you enjoyed the first book, the Maze Runner, stick it out through Scorch Trials, in the end you'll be glad you did.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends — the Gladers. But it's finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test. What WICKED doesn't know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it's enough to prove that he can't believe a word of what they say. Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He'll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all. The time for lies is over.

About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

But, good-hearted and dutiful, Isabella accompanies her two young country cousins to oversee their London debut...only to find that it's she who is attracting suitors...all of whom do seem to have quite an excess of creditors!
