After whizzing through the first maze runner book i instantly ordered the second, desperate to know what was going to happen next and I wasn't dissapointed. The book gets going at a fast pace which I liked as I hate books that take ages to get started. There are absolutely no dull or pointless parts like in some books and as the gladers make their way through the scorch they carry on gradually piecing together the puzzle and get slightly more knowledge of what's going on and why they're there but there are still some questions left unanswered which then makes you desperate for the next book!

The scorch trials (known as phase 2 in the book) are much harder and nastier than the maze which after reading this seems very tame! The gladers have to endure lots of horrible things on their journey like extreme storms and the terrifying 'cranks' who are people who've caught the flare and have gone insane from it resulting in them becoming basically savage zombies! Plus lots of other horrors but I won't ruin it for you by telling you what they are. They're horrible!

The characters in the book are the same as the first with a few new additions and none of the characters are irritating or tiresome (unless they're supposed to be) and you grow to like them as the book goes on and want them to survive. Minho is the leader of the group now and Teresa isn't with the group for a big section of the story which I wont say why (spoilers!)

Absolutely brilliant story and I can't fault it! Finished it in a matter of days! Can't wait for the next one

Tom is joined by some new and old friends in a the scorch trials. The collective joins in a journey across Barranquilla lands, ruined cities and desolate mountains. Just like the previous book there are mysterious strangers, ghoulish creatures and new natural abnormalities. A great twisting storyline. Definitely worth reading to continue the series

Having watched the film and being unable to be patient to wait for the second instalment of the film, I decided to purchase this book. I was a little disappointed with the way the plot unfolded. There was many interesting characters which developed in this story, that made me want to continue reading. However, just when I thought it was over, it started all again!!

This book is soooooo good, sometimes my heart went out to the characters and stopped when a daring move happened. It is packed with Drama. You should get it definitely.

Saw the maze runner film and had to read the trilogy especially as Death Cure film ( book 3 ) isn't out until 2018. Unputdownable

Second half was a lot better than the first. Took a lot to get going and got boring in parts. Ending is predictable if read first book.
