I wanted to love the conclusion to this trilogy, I really wanted to but I just didn’t. It seemed a bit…boring. The Death Cure took a long time to become involved in. There were some parts that kept me reading and really were brilliant but for the most part I was unimpressed.

I found Thomas tedious and angsty, he annoyed me a lot in The Death Cure where in the other two books he seemed far more interesting. I think this book may have been better if it hadn’t needed to live up to its action-filled predecessor. The Death Cure was far slower and, perhaps, more political.

There were action scenes, albeit few and far between, but they were exciting and compelling just like they should be. Those scenes are the only reason this book will get the rating it’s getting from me.

I was utterly disappointed that all the questions that had arisen throughout the books were not answered.

*SPOILERS BELOW*

Who was Chancellor Ava Paige? Why did she help? Where did she go? What about the rest of the world? Where did the immunes even end up? What happened to Rat Man? Why on earth didn’t Thomas get his memories back so we could see what had happened? I honestly can’t imagine not wanting to know why I did what I did even if it was a horrible memory!
None of this is answered and that drove me mad.

*END OF SPOILERS*

I did, however, absolutely love the character of Newt. I found the scenes that involved him — especially as they reached the end — touching and wonderful.

The book ends on a rather anticlimactic point and felt somewhat unfinished.

I also didn’t like the love triangle. Some day I’d love to read a fantastic dystopian novel without a pointless love triangle… It can be done, it’ll just take a wonderful writer to do it!

After reading the first two novels in this series I couldn't wait to get the third, kind of wish I hadn't bothered. Although there were some really good and exciting bits throughout when I reached the end I couldn't help but feel a bit ripped off. It was like he just got to the end and thought "I need to meet my deadline, this will do" I've been left with a massive feeling of disappointment in a series that had a lot going for it. The reason I gave three stars is because there are some good bits with some unexpected twists but the ending could have been so much better.

I would definitely recommend this series, just don't hold out any hope for the ending

This book was just nothing compared to the other two in the series. It was like the author just lost his flare (sorry couldn't help myself!) for writing. The character development of Theresa is non existent in this book along with the fact the main female protagonist was only mentioned in about fifteen pages. This book has the worst ending I have ever read. So many questions unanswered and so many routes he could have taken with it and he goes for the shortest easiest one which was so bad a child could have done a better job. I was just so disappointed. Terrible book to end an amazing series.

I enjoyed the first book but two and three were a slog that I just wanted to get through in order to find out what the whole pint was. Not very well written or engaging. The characters are two dimensional and rather frustrating. The first book had good pace and plot but to draw it out to three books was excessive and annoying. Book two and three gave little real information as to the whole point until the very end of Death Cure. I skipped through huge swathes of the book just to find out what the point was. Glad it's all over now so I can go on and read something else,

I read this to find out how James Dashner managed to end this series of pretty awful books. Spoiler alert - it's such a ridiculous ending that you'll wonder, as I did, why you bothered reading any of this series at all.

Such a clever idea to begin with turned into an incredibly childish read. Why did all the characters have to be so head strong and charge in at all times. They never seemed to grasp the obvious that laid in front of them and seemed to be emotional about everything that happened to the point where I just didn't care. If it wasn't for the fact that I had to know what the ending was I wouldn't have bothered after the first book. Really frustrating because of such a clever concept to begin with.

I was really let down by this book. It felt incredibly underwhelming compared to the other two which is so disappointing when it had so much scope to be fantastic. It didn't feel as though it explained everything well enough or tied up loose ends. I actually regretted spending time reading it.

*****NB The following review is written by my 14 year old son*****

So after reading the other two books i decided to finish the trilogy when i found out about the death cure.
I personally do not understand all the hate about the ending i thought it was AMAZING!
Although i found myself not getting hooked to it and reading it in like 2 days like the other two books Im very glad i came back to read it because as i stated before i thought ending was very well written and unlike others i felt it wasnt written just for the sake of it. i felt the book really stood out from the other two and is very welcome to join them. I would almost go to far as to say it was the BEST in the trilogy :)
I give it four stars only because dashner really did stretch out every little detail, although some people may find this a nice thing i continuously found myself skipping some sentences or full paragraphs just because it was boring reading about 'the tint of thomass eyes as the bright sun shone down upon them.' and every other little thing
All in all i think this book is certainly worthy of a read and i hope you enjoy it. i would reccomend this to teenagers as im a 14 year old boy and i loved it.

p.s. it had me in tears at some parts hahahaha
