Publisher's Summary

Book two in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don't miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!

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.

The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O'Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The third movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will hit screens in 2018.

Also look for James Dashner's edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED!!!

Once again I will say, I'm BLOWN AWAY by the fact that there is not even an OUNCE of similarity between the Scorch Trial movie (which is all I had to go by up til now) and what I just finished listening to from the actual book!!!! Did James Dashner REALLY sign off on the final script for the movie?!! Did he just sell the rights off and had no say at all about what went into the "Hollywood" version of his amazing book?! I'm baffled at how the movie is not even CLOSE to having the same storyline as the book!! Thank God I took time to do the "audible" version of the book, because it moved me in ways that the movie couldn't dream of doing. Wow......

Maze Runner - #2 - The Scorch Trials

Story: I like the first book and I was willing to listen to the next book before the movie came out. I found it on par with the first book, no more or less than. The same about the second movie though they condensed and changed some of the characters to meet reel run time limitation. In addition, I felt that some of book events and characters were not quite believable. But then, I believe the author wanted to leave doubt about everyone in the book for suspense.

Reader: Good.

Production: Good.

The plot was a little predictable and it was frustrating that Thomas seemed so gullible but otherwise I liked the book a lot!
