The Scorch Trials by James Dashner Book Summary

Read the second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series that is soon to be a motion picture, hitting theaters September 18, 2015, and is perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. The first book, The Maze Runner, is now a movie featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster! Also look for James Dashner’s newest novels, The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts, the first two books in the Mortality Doctrine series.
Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.
Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.
There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.
The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.
Praise for the Maze Runner series:
"[A] mysterious survival saga that passionate fans describe as a fusion of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and Lost."—
“Wonderful action writing—fast-paced…but smart and well observed.”—Newsday
“[A] nail-biting must-read.”—
“Breathless, cinematic action.” —Publishers Weekly
“Heart-pounding to the very last moment.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Exclamation-worthy.” —Romantic Times
[STAR] “James Dashner’s illuminating prequel [The Kill Order] will thrill fans of this Maze Runner [series] and prove just as exciting for readers new to the series.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred

The Scorch Trials (James Dashner) Book Reviews

I CANT EVENPlease do yourself a favor and improve the quality of life by reading this book. 100% better than the movie, even though the movie wasn't bad. Summary: If you remotely liked the movie, YOU'LL LOVE THE BOOK🤑.Score: 5/5

The scorch trialsIve read the first book and saw the movie but i think the second book is alittle but berree. #CANT WAIT TO READ THE 3RD And 4TH book.Score: 5/5

BestA+ in my book one of the best I ever read.Score: 5/5

🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍I would stay up for hours reading this book. I love stuff with action, this book had a lot of action! It ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, and that really annoys me but I can just get the third one. Some parts I was a bit confused but, I think it was on purpose so you will feel the confusion that Thomas is feeling. I love this book! It has some unexpected turns, that makes it so much more interesting. I recommend this book to people who like adventure and sci-fi. And like everyone. It’s very enjoyable! And Newt is the best and I got really mad that I barely read anything about him. Yes he is the best. Just my opinion. You can’t not like Newt. I’m also gonna make anyone I meet read these books. I would love for these characters to be my friends. I’m rambling on now. K bye! Have a nice day!🤍.Score: 5/5

This book suckedHad a plot that was very interesting, but it was so poorly written. There were so many not needed twists and turns. And they want you to care about the characters, but how can you? They are all 1 dimensional. In the end I liked the movie more than the book. Yeah, I said it.Score: 2/5

AmazingSo much more violence and action. Don't listen to the haters, it is nothing like the first book. Just the same characters..Score: 5/5

WICKED Is (NOT) GoodAmazing. Simply amazing. James Dashner goes into an enormous amount of powerful descriptive details on every single page of this novel. Could not be a better book, the movie looks great as well, and it is an overall perfect book..Score: 5/5

The best thing everThis series is in my top ten favorite series (it’s right behind warriors and ahead of captain underpants) it has lots of smart ideas in it and it has a good balance of humor and drama.Score: 5/5

Great book (yet no answers)The title I gave this review tells it all. Like most books that are part of a series this seems to pave the way to the next book. It has its own story. However, it's a big draw up to the short and abrupt ending. Still yet, I like the maze runner series so far. On to the next one! XxKRAZYxK0BRAxX.Score: 4/5

Awesome 👏💖🤩 ! I liked it even more than the first. It had action and was a little creepy. I loved it😁😁! One of my favorite books! Love all the suspense and the sense of adventure. Shows a true dystopian world. The characters are amazing ❤️❤️.Score: 5/5

Best book everI read this book along with the other 3 books 4 times (maze runner, death cure, and kill order).*the act of rating five stars makes you feel DETERMINED..Score: 5/5

Better than the first!Since I wasn't a big fan of the first book I had low expectations for this one, but wow, I couldn't stop reading! Of course it started a little slow, but it got more intense and disturbing and even scary (I read it in the dark at nighttime lol)! And again, the only thing I didn't like about this book is this fake-swearing. I tried to ignore it and it turned out to work. I'm definitely gonna start The Death Cure as soon as possible!.Score: 4/5

Pretty good second bookFirst mistake of mine was that I watched the movies firsts (just because of dylanobrien) but anywaysss the movie and the book are WAYYYYYYYYYY different and I had a hard time trying to understand somethings that were happening because i kept thinking of the movie. It wasn’t because i wasn’t interested in the book because i was 100% was i’d would always read it when i could it just stresses me so much how ( SPOILER🤠) how thomas and the other gladers find out that they are “immune” to the virus at the very very beginning of the movie and in the book they don’t even know it they do gives use a little hint at the end of book 2 that something is up and that the some kids are “immune” but the characters don’t even know just the people reading the book..Score: 4/5

Why?This book is just one big pile of action, pointless twists, and random monsters at the end just cause we need a final battle. It’s sad because book 1 was good, and sadder that people think this is a good book..Score: 2/5

It was boringI liked this book, but it was kinda boring, for me and not as interesting as the first one. I hated Brenda, and I was disappointed near the end of the book, but it was still a good book for me. If you’ve already read the Maze Runner then you definitely should read this book unless you like Teresa too much..Score: 3/5

AmazingOk at first I hated the book. But that was because I watched all the movies before reading the books, so I hated this book ( the scorch trails) because its nothing like the movie. But the ending tho! Really got me and now I’m hooked!! I totally recommend reading this book and the first one!! Now I’m on my way to read the death cure!!.Score: 5/5

AmazingI read the first book in this series a while ago, and then I found this book. I definitely recommend the whole series of four books. This book is captivating and James Dashner makes us VERY mad at the end of the book because there is a cliff hanger. All endings aside, this book is a great sci-fi read..Score: 5/5

Death Cure ReviewThis book is for the people that want the best experience over a book. This book is filled with drama, suspense, and sadness. SPOILER The part where Teresa dies is so sad.. Her last words as "I only care for you" that made me cry... And so did the sad death of newt..Score: 5/5

AmazingThis book has to be the absolute best book I've ever read. It's had so many cliffhangers, especially with me going to school I had to stop in the middle places I didn't want to... But I ended up getting through it. It had a lot of suspension and it kept me on the edge of my seat for sure. I couldn't stop talking about it to my friends, teachers, and family. And once I got done with it I was so happy to be able to read "the Death Cure". If you haven't seen the movie yet I suggest you read the book 1st because the book build up more Tension then movies do. Have fun reading the book! :-).Score: 5/5

Finished in a dayCouldn't put it down. Watched the maze runner movie and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I'm sad that it wasn't longer but I think I feel as tired as Thomas does. Page after page of action, plenty to keep you on the edge of your seat. This story is messed up... But that's because I don't know what happens in the end...yet. Downloading the death cure now.
