This was a good wrap up of the series. actually enjoyed this one more than the first two. Lots of action, better characters, etc..

Please read my review of book 1...this is a continuation (with a blurb added for book 2):

A positive was an actual resolution or ending (though I would have preferred to see it 2 books ago).
It was the obvious ending...the one that should have appeared obvious & that I had to bring up to my teenager during my read of book 1; kind of a "duh" moment.

Much of the "science" was "shit," btw. You can't create a vaccine based on brain patterns. And it wouldn't work if you could. Dumbest idea I may have ever heard. No excuse that it was thought up by Flare infected.

Okay, flat out, can someone read this for a thrill? If that's your thing. Could it make you think? On a basic level, but it completely misses the Berg getting people to think on a higher level because it's too basic itself. Why do I disapprove as a mom? There is zero value to the violence. It's over hyped & over dramatized...just like a bad movie that pre-plans it's sequels. Layers of drama & violence...hoping to boost ticket sales.

The series ended as I thought it should have begun, but I enjoyed the journey none the less.

This series took me on quite a roller coaster ride. I can't believe it's finally over. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. I don't think I'm disappointed though; any other outcome would have been upsetting. But it still leaves the question of whether or not WICKED was good up to the individual. I'm still undecided. It was a great story and I look forward to reading the prequel.

Saw the movie first. The book and the movie are completely different. The movie doesn't follow the book at all. The book as written is far better than the lame excuse of a movie. The interaction between the Gladers and the Right Arm in the book is better with the initial mistrust between the two parties. The interaction between Brenda, Theresa and Thomas plays out better in the book than the movie. Newt still gets killed in a confrontation with Thomas but the way he is killed in the book is so much better. See the movie first if you haven't already but then get ready for a completely different/better story with the book.

Surprising way to end a series.
