Beschreibung

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.
In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.
Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated - and with it, order - and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim... and meal.
The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

Quite boring with little structure

Seems like a plathora of bad things thrown upon teenage boys... for no real reason. At least none that has a good explaination (and as I read in other reviews - will not be have much of one in the last book of the triology). The writing is flat, the main character becomes increasingly more unlikeable and is also kind of dense. The Maze Runner started so well - what a fantastic idea to wake up in a giant, dangerous maze without any idea or memories about it. But I guess that's how far the authors' fantasy reached. Sure, he invents more cruel things to happen to the boys, but there is no depth, no real point to the cruelty, and not much of a connection between the different plot parts. Side characters come and are used like meaningless props without much personality or history. The writing is simple and boring, the special vocab of the book kind of weird. Altogether, I found the book pretty bland. I have no desire to finish the triology.
