The Death Cure

I finally got to read the last book in the trilogy!!!!! I literally finished it in 2 hours because I just HAD to find out how everything ended! Hopefully I don’t ruin anything in this review for those who haven’t read it yet!

The book opens up with Thomas in isolation from everyone else because he apparently has the Flare virus. When he is finally released from his containment chamber, he sees all of the other survivors from the trials with him, waiting for WICKED to give them information. Thomas knows that WICKED can’t be trusted, but now they are telling everyone that the nightmare is over and no more information is needed. They are now willing to give everyone their memories back so that they can all work together on the blueprint for the cure. Although many agree, Thomas, Minho, and Newt decide not to go along and escape from WICKED. But the outside is jo better than the inside; no one knows who to trust and it feels like WICKED is everywhere. Will anyone survive the Death Cure?

So I tried my best not to reveal a lot. It is kind of inevitable in a trilogy but I tried to keep the spoilers to a minimum. This book actually had me disappointed. It was pretty anticlimactic and most of the book was spent running around doing nothing. The ending was a bit better because there was at least a bit more action but it was still mediocre at best.  After all of the craziness and hype generated from the other 2 books, I was expecting a lot from the trilogy. For those of you who have read the first 2 books, I know you will most likely read this one. So be warned that it kinda sorta sucks. If you disagree, comment below and let me know why you think it is awesome and worth reading because I would love to hear different opinions!
