"The Death Cure" by James Dashner

The Death Cure by James Dashner is a real page turner that I couldn't wait to get back to reading. This is the third book of The Maze Runner trilogy that I enjoyed as much as I did The Hunger Games trilogy. The Death Cure picks up where The Scorch Trials left off and is a suspenseful read that is loaded with adventure but doesn't quite finish as I expected. All through is a fight for survival.

I liked most of the characters, especially Thomas and Minho. It is about saving the human race from a virus that makes people lose their sanity. Some are immune to it and so hated by those who have it. I liked how the "subjects" all worked together to prevent what happened to them from happening to others. The question is does the ends justify the means. At one point, Thomas says he doesn't believe there is a right and wrong anymore, just horrible and less horrible. It has a strange ending but then, the whole series was strange since it is science fiction.

You must read the first two books in this series though before reading this one or you would be pretty lost. I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone looking for something different and adventurous.
