In this volume we follow Thomas after the events on the second book. I don’t want to spoil you in case you haven’t even read the second book. (Don’t even think about reading this review!)
It’s the end of the line.
WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.
Will anyone survive?
What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.
The truth will be terrifying.
Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.
The time for lies is over.
Honestly, i enjoyed this trilogy. I liked the ending and i don’t understand why this gets so much hate. It is the best? No. But given everything that happened i felt this was right. But i will give a fuller review in the second part.
Overall, the book gives us a new perspective on WICKED. Are they this bad thing? Is WICKED good? Why do they do all this things? What are the plans for Thomas? Everything is answered in the course of the book but it’s no literal. You have to comprehend and analyse.
It’s medium pace, but you do go to a lot of different places but the action is always there.
I gave it 4 out of 5. Please give it a try if you read the rest. I think i enjoyed this one as much as the first one. Have you read it? Do you agree with the majority of people? Tell me! 🙂
Full review next!
Ending: i don’t understand why some many people don’t like the book or the series. because the ending made sense in a natural way. The immune people would always be the surviving ones. The ones worth saving. This is natural selection at his best, only the adapted ones survive to create a new and improving civilization. So i guess its the natural ending to expect. I did ended up enjoying Brenda more than Teresa but her death still shock me.
Newt: WHY?! WHY THE HELL WHOULD YOU KILL THE BEST PERSON IN THIS DAMN TRILOGY?!?!?! Sorry for the caps, i just felt apart. The way he asked Thomas to kill him because he didn’t want to get crazy. The final meeting between them was the death of me. I started shaking. To me he was the light at the end of the tunnel. When we find out he is not immune i think everyone’s heart broke. Still, his story arc is very cool and the one with a great amount of growth.
Maze: i liked they went back to the maze, it was like a full circle. At that moment we knew everything was going to end in some way.
WICKED: This was a WICKED book. Explaining everything that was on their minds. I still don’t get it why they actually had to kill Thomas just in the end. Why not kill him right in the beginning and experiment in the others? i liked the creepy ending. When Ava Paige says, while the rest goes to extinction. This is the reality in nature. Only the strong ones who adapt survive like i said. She was the only one in WICKED who understood that. The other were already infected not only with a disease but also with ambition. Still in the end we understood why Teresa always said WICKED is good, that was their moto, they said that to everyone before erasing their memories. That was their goal but it got lost in the way.
Thomas: Thomas was very different in this book, more deathly. in the previous he was even afraid of hurting someone and on this book he is killing people like crazy. His relationship with Teresa was unfinished to me. They never actually made peace but he never told her he was hurt. That is the part i think didn’t developed very well.
I hope you enjoyed the review!
