Ugh - same ol' same ol'

— feeling what?!?
The Scorch Trials - James Dashner

Rating 2.5 out of 5 stars. In the second installment of the Maze Runner series, we get the EXACT same story but outside the maze and a sprinkle of new characters. 

 

Nothing is resolved. The mystery is still all around and more and more strange things to ponder about are thrown our way, but not in a good way that keeps you guessing and wanting to know more. Nope. It's all quite boring. 

 

I'm totally done with it, really. And I'm giving fair warning that I'm skimming the heck out of book 3. All I want to know is why is WICKED putting all these children through such horror. I can't have WASTED my time with this to not be for a reason. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to super disappointed. 

 

As of now, I'm going on record to say - do yourself a favor and skip this book. It's just a rehash of the first book, but without the menacing Grievers.
