After having refreshed my memory of "The Maze Runner" by watching the movie, I decided to finally pick up its sequel. Thomas and his friends have successfully made it out of the maze and are eager to enjoy their new-found freedom. The peace is short-lived, though because shortly after they're dumped in the Scorch, a blisteringly hot desert with Cranks lusting after their bodyparts. The Gladers' new goal is reaching the so-called safe haven. The catch: they only have two weeks to get there... I had high hopes for this book, but I have to say that I was pretty disappointed by it. The storyline was admittedly quite good, but it just wasn't as exciting as its predecessor. Also, there's a lot of sleeping, eating and getting knocked out going on which I find quite tiresome and annoying. Even though I am not overly happy with this installment I want to know how Thomas' story is going to end. I'm hoping for a big finish!

can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere
in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED? The pulse-pounding
sequel to The Maze Runner .
James Dashner wuchs in einer Kleinstadt in Georgia, USA, auf. Der dichte Wald in dieser Gegend lieferte ihm bereits als Kind viele Ideen für seine späteren Geschichten. Nach seinem Studium arbeitete James zunächst in der Wirtschaft. Doch schon bald fühlte er sich als "kreativer Mensch im Körper eines Buchhalters" gefangen und wandte sich dem Schreiben zu. Seitdem ist er Autor zahlreicher Bücher. James lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen vier Kindern inmitten der Rocky Mountains, behauptet er zumindest.
James Dashner was born and raised in Georgiea but lives and writes in the Rocky Mountains. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series.
