Description

The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner. Thomas was sure that escape from the maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to. The earth is a wasteland.

Government and order have disintegrated and now Cranks, people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim - and meal. Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewheren his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

Action-packed with loads more unanswered questions

The Maze trails were brutal. Now, safe in the care of their rescuers, Thomas and the Gladers can relax and begin to heal from the horrors of the past months.

But WICKED is not done yet.

They have more trials in store for Thomas and his friends. They’re ready to plunge the boys into dangers that will make the Maze trials seem like child’s-play. There will be peril, murder, betrayal, tough decisions and heart-break along the way. This time, there are no rules and only one objective: to survive.

Dashner has his foot on the accelerator and he’s not letting up in this second, thrilling installment of The Maze runner series. Once again, the fantasy world created by the author (and WICKED) is unique, filled with “variables” that terrify and have you sitting on the edge of your seat.

Some of the characters who I felt were a little “shallow” in The Maze Runner got a chance to shine in this novel. Teresa’s character played a bigger, although very ambiguous role, but we got to see a little more of what drives her. Minho gained strength throughout the journey. The main storyline revolved around Thomas though, and his reactions to the people and challenges thrown at him.

I was hoping for some more answers to questions raised in The Maze Runner, but I think I have even more than when I started. I am dying to find out what WICKED has in store for Thomas and I’m positive that Dashner will finally deliver the answers in an action-packed third installment!

Re the narrator, this isn't one of my favorite. Some of the reading is a little too emotionless for my tastes.

Great 2nd book.

I loved the second book but I am finding the unrelentingly, horrible and cruel misfortune that all the stories characters suffer from repeatedly getting a bit heavy and depressing. I am still looking forwards to listening to book 3 but I hope that their fortunes start to improve drastically or I will start to find this fantastically interesting series to hard to go on with unless I have at least three or four books to listen to that all have incredibly happy endings.

The Scorch Trials: The Maze Runner 2 Review

Where does The Scorch Trials rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've only listened to this audiobook, so I can't rank it yet.

What did you like best about this story?

The thing about the flare, the scorch and how Minho is the leader.

What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mark does different sounds for every person, he gives the virtual people in the book a true personality.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Scorch trials

Any additional comments?

The book is awesome! It's scary, it has alot of detail, and James Dashner does an extraordinarily outstandingly amazing job of making his readers enjoy his books really well.

A mystic story and a wonderful speaker

I really enjoyed this and the last part of this series. Although there are about 10 hours to listen to, it went by in a blink and now I am looking forward to the next part.
Recommended also for learners of English as it’s very easy to understand. The speaker does a perfect job by slipping from one role to the next, making it so easy to get immersed in this story. Truly wonderful.

Das Buch ist OK zum Englisch lernen.

Leider wirkt dieser Teil wie ein Mashup aus allem was ich kenne und eigentlich nicht mehr lesen möchte. Dies wird serviert mit viel unnötiger Gewalt und nerviger Brutalität. Trotzdem möchte ich wissen wie die Story weitergeht, und wenn die Auflösung im dritten Buch mich nicht überzeugt, dann werde ich mein Rating zu diesem zweiten Teil nach unten korrigieren. Für sich alleine gibt das Buch jedenfals nicht viel her. Aber irgendwie hat es mich unterhalten. Und zum Englisch lernen ist es ganz OK. Der Sprecher ist mit Abstand das Beste am Hörbuch!!

Band 2 besser als Band 1

Ich habe Maze Runner vor ziemlich lange Zeit gelesen und muss gestehen, ich war nicht gerade begeistert. Ich habe Band 2 deshalb auch nie angefangen. Nun habe ich aber den Film gesehen (eine jener extrem raren Situationen in denen der Film mir tatsächlich besser gefallen hat als das Buch!), und wollte doch wissen wie es weiter geht. Und ich muss Scorch Trials, hat mir auch wirklich viel besser gefallen. Ob ich Bands 3 auch noch "lese" weiß ich noch nicht, jedoch fand ich nicht nur die Geschichte besser (man weiß nun auch zumindest 1/4 der Zeit was passiert...) sondern auch der Sprecher ist sehr angenehm und hat für mich für den halben Stern zusätzlich ausgereicht, um auf 4 Sterne zu kommen.
