“In my opinion, it's getting too confusing. We don't have a single goshdarn idea of what's going on. I suppose Dashner wants to see if we can figure it out... a sort of trial of our own (I sound like an insane english teacher), but I haven't got a clue as to the reason... theories, yes. Future leaders of the world? Make everyone else somehow invincible? But I just feel lost.
It was great, fast-paced, never slow. Just like the first one. But then you don't know who to trust... Teresa pissed me off, but I really liked Brenda. I don't know how I feel right now... I have to wait for it to sink in before i get a solid opinion.”

“The Maze was only the beginning...
Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more Variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back... read more ”
“You know how sometimes it's hard for a sequel to live up to the first book in its series? Well, this isn't one of those times! The Scorch Trials is the second book to The Maze Runner, and it was completely FANTASTIC!
This book picks up where the other left off -- all the Gladers have just been rescued from the clutches of WICKED after escaping the maze, but if they thought their adventure was over, they were wrong. In fact, when they wake up in the morning at the "safe" house, they find all their rescuers dead, Teresa is missing, and there's a creepy, rat-faced guy behind an invisible force field who has knows what's going on but won't tell them.
This book is just as fast-paced as book 1, maybe even more so, and if you're into adventure and terror, this is the series for you.”
“I just finished reading James Dashner's, Scorch Trials, and, whew, I think I need a nap. The action never let up. James had me on the edge of my seat almost throughout the whole book. His use of short chapters and cliffhangers at the end of each was very effective in maintaining the tension.
Thomas, who had been a maze runner in the first book, and responsible for getting he and his friends out of the Glade, is immediately dropped into a pot of problems at the onset of the book. Now he has to endure the Scorch Trials. He and his friends have to endure scorching deserts, deadly lightning storms, abandoned disease riden cities full of crazy people, and betrayal, as he battles to make it to the "save haven" in the alotted time. He barely makes it. But the tension is not over.
The book leaves me dangling at the end. To me there wasn't enough resolution. I realize that there is another book still to go in the series. But I needed a little more of a breather, a touch of something warm and fuzzy. Especially if I am to dive into another book and another round of sitting on the edge of my seat.
My tastes usually go for something more mellow, but overall, I did like the book. I would heartily reccomend it to one who likes to chew their nails while they read.
