3rd book in the Maze Runner series. Twists and turns of betrayals and backstabbing. More is revealed about the mysterious WICKED, not that it makes a heck of a lot of sense... Still, it's a pretty suspenseful book with interesting characters and I couldn't just stop reading the series without trying to find out what happens. ( )

A lot is revealed in this book and the story finally comes to an end. Dashner manages to keep the action going right to the end. The main problem is that WICKED's search for a cure makes no scientific sense and the notion that a government would release a deadly, airborne virus into the general population, on purpose, for which it has no cure is just silly. There are easier ways to reduce population. ( )

Listened to the audiobook and its really good. Not like some of the monontous audio books out there. I didnt care for the beginning of actual story at first but then it got really good and i liked the ending. I was hoping there would be more of this series but its hard to tell by the ending. It seemed pretty final... ( )

Unfortunately the last book of the trilogy doesn't made me to like the story. First of all it's very hard to like Thomas, the hero with all of his whinings. But my major concern is that I hoped some solid explanation why to torture teenagers for years to find the cure of a viral disease. Unfortunately I've learnt too much biology not to laugh at the 'explanation' which is a big bunch of illogical and unscientific nonsense. ( )

Like so many other series that have strung along readers with mysteries to be discovered, this series is disappointing in the end. I think I gave up on this one when Thomas actually stops someone from explaining something because he just doesn't want to know anymore. You can't focus a series so much on discoveries of the truth only to have the main character refuse to engage! The final reveal in this book is so completely obvious that I really couldn't believe no one had done that already (several times over, in fact, given the basic timeline of the Flare). Also, while I get that this is a book that is aimed more at boys, and romance is a stereotypical girl thing, the romance is so underwritten as to be nearly non-existent, which made me wonder why it was in there at all. The relationships between Thomas and the other Gladers were so much better developed, and they really made this a two star book for me, rather than a one star. ( )

It was the smell that began to drive Thomas slightly mad. Not being alone for over three weeks. Not the white walls, ceiling and floor.
