The final installment of the Maze Runner series, The Death Cure, was comprised of gripping characters, nail-biting suspense, and constant page-turning plot lines. The story continued to detail the fateful encounters and occurrences of the main characters, focusing primarily on their fallout’s and friendships with Thomas. Thomas works relentlessly to uncover the true intentions behind the actions of the company WICKED, and to gain a better understanding of why the maze was built in the first place. The book keeps the readers asking questions about what WICKED is actually trying to accomplish, making all the more of an impact when Thomas finally discovers the truth and WICKED’s master plan is revealed.
The hard-to-put-down final book of the series told the heart-wrenching and heart-warming fates of the characters that the readers had grown so attached to. Between the shocking plot twists, chilling descriptions of the main group’s encounters with the mind-addled cranks, and revelations about the motivations driving the initial experimentation, the book was both very enjoyable and exciting.
I would recommend that people who want a fast-paced, action-packed story read this book. The ending was rather harrowing, but the story leading up to it involved the readers experiencing a wide range of emotions and always being on the edge of their seat not knowing what to expect next. For those who want to invest themselves in an exhilarating story, The Death Cure is a must read.
