Okay it took me wayyy too long to read this book. I talked to my sister about it and she had a similar experience with the beginning taking ages to get through and the end being very abrupt.
I guess this pacing is symbolic of how long they spent trying to solve the maze and how quickly the chain of events unfolded as soon as the Ending was triggered.
I’ve watched the movie a while ago (because hello Dylan O’Brian) and I’ve tried reading the book before but only made it to the end this time around.
I really enjoyed it more than I thought I would as soon as I got more involved with the book, and I even became really attached to the characters and cried when some of them died.
Apparently my soul is in for a lot more torture in the rest of this series. I guess in every bookworm there is a masochist because we love reading books that torture us.
Overall I think Dashner has created an intricate world of thrilling mysteries to be solved. The epilogue certainly left me burning with a ton of questions. Hopefully “The Scorch Trials” will answer some of them.
Before I start reading it, I think I’m going to watch the first movie again and reevaluate how I feel about it’s portrayal of the story.
