The original review appeared on my other site: The Reviews.
Book 2 of The Maze Runner hits the ground running and doesn’t stop. And before you brush this series off as just another teen utopian/dystopian/love story along the lines of The Hunger Games or Divergent, think again.
In The Scorch Trials we get all the action of The Hunger Games, all of the intrigue of Divergent, and none of the distraction of a love story. In this episode another layer of the experiment is revealed and Thomas continues to not like what he is finding out about himself. At least, his old self.
