Publisher's Summary

The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner. Thomas was sure that escape from the maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to. The earth is a wasteland.

Government and order have disintegrated and now Cranks, people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim - and meal. Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewheren his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

    "Continuing Strong"

    Only a few hours into the Maze Runner I knew I would have to finish this series, The Scorch Trials picks up seamlessly from where the first book left and only deepens the mystery. It's full of twists and turns that left me begging for my favorite characters survival. Just like the first book this will have you racing to the end.

    Story
    "Action-packed with loads more unanswered questions"

    The Maze trails were brutal. Now, safe in the care of their rescuers, Thomas and the Gladers can relax and begin to heal from the horrors of the past months.

    But WICKED is not done yet.

    They have more trials in store for Thomas and his friends. They’re ready to plunge the boys into dangers that will make the Maze trials seem like child’s-play. There will be peril, murder, betrayal, tough decisions and heart-break along the way. This time, there are no rules and only one objective: to survive.

    Dashner has his foot on the accelerator and he’s not letting up in this second, thrilling installment of The Maze runner series. Once again, the fantasy world created by the author (and WICKED) is unique, filled with “variables” that terrify and have you sitting on the edge of your seat.

    Some of the characters who I felt were a little “shallow” in The Maze Runner got a chance to shine in this novel. Teresa’s character played a bigger, although very ambiguous role, but we got to see a little more of what drives her. Minho gained strength throughout the journey. The main storyline revolved around Thomas though, and his reactions to the people and challenges thrown at him.

    I was hoping for some more answers to questions raised in The Maze Runner, but I think I have even more than when I started. I am dying to find out what WICKED has in store for Thomas and I’m positive that Dashner will finally deliver the answers in an action-packed third installment!

    Re the narrator, this isn't one of my favorite. Some of the reading is a little too emotionless for my tastes.

    "Great 2nd book."

    I loved the second book but I am finding the unrelentingly, horrible and cruel misfortune that all the stories characters suffer from repeatedly getting a bit heavy and depressing. I am still looking forwards to listening to book 3 but I hope that their fortunes start to improve drastically or I will start to find this fantastically interesting series to hard to go on with unless I have at least three or four books to listen to that all have incredibly happy endings.

    "The Scorch Trials: The Maze Runner 2 Review"
    Where does The Scorch Trials rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've only listened to this audiobook, so I can't rank it yet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing about the flare, the scorch and how Minho is the leader.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark does different sounds for every person, he gives the virtual people in the book a true personality.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Scorch trials


    Any additional comments?

    The book is awesome! It's scary, it has alot of detail, and James Dashner does an extraordinarily outstandingly amazing job of making his readers enjoy his books really well.

    Has The Scorch Trials turned you off from other books in this genre?

    the scorch trials and the death cure has turned me off James Dashner


    How could the performance have been better?

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    sadness and disappointment

    "Not my cup of tea"
    Any additional comments?

    I did make it through 'The Maze' but enjoyed the film more (possibly because I was tied to the seat of an aircraft?). The sequel was lacking in exactly the same way: the book is written in an unsophisticated adolescent language, the conversations shallow as are the characters, the interactions and reactions the same over and over again - very little to enjoy in the writing style - too many "shanks", "shut your hole", "slim it" and too little depth.I may try the film in the next aircraft but did not make it through the book itself.

    it's worth listening to and I really enjoyed the performance by the reader. the plot is a bit slow in places or maybe not quite believable which makes it feel laging. but overall I do like it.

    Great story but mostly brilliant narration. Quite possibly the best narrator I've heard for an audiobook...absolutely mastered the characters voices, male and female, regardless of accent.

    "Best in the world"

    This series is the best I have ever heard and I thought the narrator was amazing. It is quite scary in some places but it has the best story line ever created I would say it is only suitable for children over 12 since it is quite disturbing in places. If you have enjoyed this audio book I would recommend The Death Cure and The Kill Order and The Fever Code
