I was hoping to find out how Wicked started; and more about Thomas and Theresa's relationship. They were the main characters in the Trilogy, but they were non-existent in the Prequel. This entire book was about how the Flare began. The main character, Mark, lives through the Flare, floods, food shortages, diseased crazed people beating him up and more! He's like today's Rambo! This book took me a lot longer to read because many parts, like Mark constantly needing n..
I really enjoyed this series. I actually became interested in it because of the movies, and the books are much, much better than the movies in my opinion. Aftering read the books I really don't understand why the 2nd movie deviated so much from such an interesting and original plot in favor of becoming more of a generic, cliche zombie flick. Nice, easy, and enjoyable read. Apart from some character developments in the 3rd book that I couldn't suspend my disbelief f..
The world before the flares is hard to imagine: a world where people were normal, you could go outside with dying from sun poisoning, and it was safe to be in public. The world that everyone lives in today is something we all take for granted. Teresa and Thomas lived in the world after all of this, so it was hard for them to remember what it was like before. They lived in a world where they’d been “left with only whatever they had that hadn’t fried” in the ..
Imagine a story where the author has a small secret to tell, and it's so small he can't reveal any clues at all about it because you'll figure it all out, so he creates this book where NO ONE EVER ANSWERS A SINGLE STUPID QUESTION! Welcome to "The Maze Runner".Dashner starts the book out with a fairly cool scenario. Unfortunately, he immediately falls into this maddening habit of never answering a single question from any character with a straigh..
This is a good sci-fi series that draws you in right from the start. Thirty teenage boys trapped in the center of a maze, with no idea as to where they are or why. Worst of all, none of the boys have any memories of their life before they got there. Things begin to change dramatically when the last two teenagers arrive, Thomas and Teresa (the only girl!).I downloaded the complete collection and read all the books at once. Each book picks up right where the last one left of..
