After an epic ending to the Scorch trials, i could not wait to pick up the Death Cure and I was not disappointed. The trials are finally over and Thomas and his friends have a new challenge to face - can WICKED be trusted?
This book is focuses more on the outside world. It was fascinating to see the destruction that is left behind by the flare and how civilization is functioning. Again it is full of action, and I must admit the ended dragged on a bit - i got to the point where i thought could have cut out half of it out, but part of that could have been anticipation of the finish.
I dropped a star because there was parts which confused me..
I do not understand the need for Ava Paige, she barely appeared in the book but yet played a vital role in the ending. The character was not developed and im still confused as to how Rat Man had so much control when she was the leader.
Another negative was Theresa and the fact she played such a small role in the final book. Although she was involved throughout she seemed to be replaced as the lead female protagonist and just ended up being another one of the group. Her relationship with Thomas also was not elaborated on leaving one of the final scenes void of emotion for that reason.
Overall it was still an Epic finale - and a trilogy I would wholly recommend that you read. With the influx of popular distopian fiction I had begun to become tired of the concept but I was glad I shrugged off my worries and read this as it restored my faith.
Lets hope the films do them justice....
