Book Review: The Death Cure, James Dashner

death-cureGoodreads Blurb:

It’s the end of the line.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.

Will anyone survive?

What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.

The truth will be terrifying.

Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.

The time for lies is over.

My thoughts:

I’d like to say this one was my favourite of the trilogy, but I’m torn between the three! I absolutely loved it, again I was on the edge of my seat, and getting answers which weren’t always the best to hear.

As I learnt more about the reasons for WICKED’s actions I wanted to believe they’d done the right thing, but my loyalty to the characters held and I sided with the Glader’s anger. Something which brings out a side to the boys which you wouldn’t really expect, and decisions which shouldn’t need to be made by anyone, let alone boys of that age.

Though the boys get a relatively happy ending, the path they had to take to get there was rough. For me it was a rather emotional ending – I got really attached to the characters, and not all made it through.

I think The Death Cure was the perfect way to finish, and I absolutely loved James Dashner’s trilogy. It is definitely one of my favourites, and I can’t wait to see the other film adaptions as well!

I tried a new review technique, I’ll see how it goes for next time too.
Thanks for reading,
