Having escaped the villainous maze that kept him and his fellow Gladers trapped by WICKED, Thomas believes that he and his friends are now safe from harm. But then Teresa, Thomas' strongest link to his forgotten past, disappears, and the illusion of sanctuary shatters when the Gladers are forced to go on a harrowing quest across the sun scorched earth. Nothing is familiar, everything deadly. Stalked by heinous monsters far more evil than the Grievers ever were, bizarre and devastating weather, the dark, insane victims of the world wide virus known as the Flare, and a mysterious other group of Gladers - who may just want Thomas dead - the survivors of the Maze Trials are running out of time, and may end up paying with their lives...

OK, so, I read the first book, The Maze Runner, and was hooked. It was honestly the best young adult novel I had read in a while, and I was on fire to get The Scorch Trials (no pun intended). I was very pleased when the book came earlier than expected, and I began to read immediately.

Well...

To be honest, it wasn't that great of a story. I mean, I loved reading it and all, don't get me wrong, but it was just the kids walking across the desert, and slowly getting bumped off by new monsters (um..please tell me if anyone else was upset when Thomas didn't save Jack). Maybe Dashner was trying to do away with unnecessary characters... but, if that was a case, he could have tried a tad bit harder. I mean, Jorge - I'm sorry if that isn't how it's spelled - was barely in it, after the initial bargaining scene.

Another thing...wow. WHAT was with that movie?

The first one wasn't a literary masterpiece, but I enjoyed it. This one was just painful. Possibly the stupidest book I've ever managed to finish. A high body count doesn't make for an interesting read.

All the bits about founding a society were gone, replaced by a series of events that just felt like sheer randomness. People would get kidnapped only to be rescued half a chapter later. There was no forward momentum, just a bunch of running in place. The kids end up almost exactly at the same place in the end as they started in the beginning, with very few additional answers.

A bunch of kids died, but they were all NPCs (literally labelled as having no importance whatsoever) and no one even bothered to stop for even the pretense of mourning. There were what, eleven people in the group and Thomas couldn't even figure out their names.

Very few of the puzzles could be solved mentally. Most of them were "press x not to die" - style. Survival seemed to rely on flipping a coin. And when anyone who had any actual story relevance got hurt, it never actually had any effect on the plot. Got massive burns? Don't worry. They won't have any impact on you at all, despite the fact you're running across a desert with no water. (Not that there was much thirst, despite the fact that they were traveling on something called The Scorch.)

Instead of learning anything interesting about the world, most of the main character's internal runtime is devoted to the world's most tepid love triangle. I felt like I was being slapped to death by red herrings. Does she love me? Is she going to betray me? No, because you're stuck in a stupid YA book that thinks senseless plot twists cause adrenaline rushes.

Then there were the portions of the book that just made me burst out laughing. ARE YOU AFRAID OF ZOMBIES STEALING YOUR NOSE? DO YOU BELIEVE BRAIN DISEASES CAN BE CURED BY FEELZ? DO YOU LIKE HISPANIC PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS ADD MUCHACHO TO THE END OF THEIR SENTENCES? IF SO, THIS BOOK MIGHT BE FOR YOU!!!

Or, to reiterate: ugggggghhhhhh.

After reading The Maze Runner, which I found absolutely brilliant, I naturely went straight into the sequel. Unfortunately, I found the Scorch Trials quite a trial to read. Whereas The Maze Runner was full of mysteries that I pondered and couldn't wait to be resolved, The Scorch Trials seemed to put the characters through a whole lot of suffering and death for no reason other than for suffering's sake. There wasn't the same degree of mysteries and questions, and the setting of endless desert didn't even begin to compare to the brilliance of the maze in the previous book. Seemed to be a lot less character development as well, but could be explained as a consequence of spending the whole book on a journey. Still, a disappointing read on the whole, and a rather too repetitive ending.
