The Maze Runner (2009)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 5
This book is the perfect example of why I usually don't read YA fiction. Not only is it written for teenagers, it feels like it was written by a teenager. So many of the author's choices don't make sense. For instance, he wastes whole chapters on Thomas' disbelief that the walls of the maze mo...

The Death Cure (2011)

I don't know where to begin so I guess I will start at the ending: everybody dies! This book, and every book in the series finished with varying degrees of irresolution. The plot is fast paced and kept pulling me on to the next chapter and the next book, however, I was constantly frustrated with ...
The Kill Order (2012)

The "Kill Order" was a very good book in my opinion. I saw "The Maze Runner" movie back in October. I had not known about the books so I was able to go into the books and even the movie completely unknowing of anything about the storyline. I found out that this is actually the prequel book for "T...

A Mutiny in Time (2012)
3.76 of 5 Votes: 5
This is a well-written execution of a weak idea. Good alternate history is about what happens if something interesting changes in history. In this case, a rich, powerful and ubiquitous secret organization has agents scattered all throughout time in order to achieve its goals...but its goals are v...
The Maze Runner Trilogy (2013)
4.23 of 5 Votes: 5
I'm a sucker for dystopian, end-of-the-world type sci-fi novels. This series was an easy page-turner. Written for teens, of course, so rather innocent and chaste for my liking (bring on a hastily-raised skirt and some impromptu sex in an alley for crying out loud!) but it was fun to try to figu...
Infinity Ring Book 1: A Mutiny in Time (2012)
3.76 of 5 Votes: 5
James Dashner is a great story teller and I love to read his action sequences. This is a good adventure time-travel trilogy similar to the 13th Reality series. Dak and his friend Sera have Dak's parents infinity ring and they travel back in time to stop the SQ--a nefarious organization that run...
Um motim no tempo (2013)
3.76 of 5 Votes: 2
The writing isn't very artistic & it's not ideal for reading aloud (A number of the story's clues are visual, so those had to be explained to my listener, and the clipped sentences & dialogue made my vocal cords feel like I had participated in a yodeling competition.). However, my kids enjoyed th...
Prueba de fuego (2010)

The Scorch Trials, written by James Dashner, is the second book of the series The Mazerunner. This book is exciting and full of details that paint an extremely vivid picture for the reader. I myself especially liked the author's imagination and ability to think of excellent similes and metaphors ...

Atticus Higginbottom--known as Tick--and his friends Sofia and Paul are embroiled in a showdown with the evil Reginald Chu who plans to rule all the Realities with his Dark Infinity. Mistress Jane is given a more nuanced treatment and fleshed out which took the reader from dislike to sympathy to...
The Blade of Shattered Hope (2010)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 5
This book in my opinion was a bit boring. It did not seem to really get any direction, and was rather confusing. Mistress Jane comes back with vengeance, and tries to destroy a reality, and Tick has to come to the rescue. The problem is that Tick has no idea what to do, and so it makes him a litt...

I thought this book was amazing even though newt and Teresa died which sucked. But I cared more that newt died more than I care if Teresa died sorry!But anyway I think my obsession with minho is way too much. I told my friend how sassy he is and then I said he was "the sass queen"friend: "queen? ...
Virus letal (2012)

Entertaining, well written young adult dystopian novel. 4.5 made me cry but I skip some parts filled with too much action (at least for my taste).

eyeofmindsDiving in to James Dashner's "The Eye of Minds" was as addictive and immersive as one of my favorite video games. Which is apt, since this young adult novel (hey, I'm still young enough to enjoy those!) is about an adventurous teen named Michael who journeys daily into the popular and d...
El juego infinito (2014)

The eye of minds was a pretty good book. James Dashner did a really good job in creating a fantasy futuristic world. I liked how he made the world seem realistic. I also like how there were many plot twists throughout the story. Like at the end when we find out one of the main characters wasn't a...
The Rule of Thoughts (2014)
4.03 of 5 Votes: 5
An exciting and thrilling sequel to the semi-boring Eye of Minds. The Rule of Thoughts takes the world James Dashner has created and turns it on its head. I find that most sequels are bogged down with extreme world building, but The Rule of Thoughts does its world building in an unconventional wa...
The Maze Runner Series (2012)
4.23 of 5 Votes: 5
I'm giving the trilogy a 3.75. There were captivating parts to the story and there were equally dragging parts to it. The whole 'WICKED is good' reminded me of Dan Brown's Inferno, where they had good intentions of saving mankind -- in this case, The Flare -- but had crazy measures to do it. And ...
Maze Runner-Trilogie - Die Auserwählten: E-Box mit Bonusmaterial (2014)
4.23 of 5 Votes: 3
It was ok. As others mentioned before me, I also find the book very frustrating. Thomas was too perfect, none of the characters were asking the right questions, their behavior wasn't the most logical one either; the books felt overcomplicated (the whole WICKED plan) and too superfluous at the sam...

I'm going to try not to go on a really long critical rant about this poorly written series. I bought the books after going to the movie and realizing that I had no idea what was really going on. The books did, of course, provide the answer but at the cost of agonizing Bruce-Willis-Die-Hard type a...
The 13th Reality, book 2: The Hunt for Dark Infinity (2009)

Awesome !This would be a perfect book to read. The dialogue is funny, the names are even funnier and the story is just complex enough and has you guessing the direction it’s going to go to have you turning the pages for more. The whole thing ends on a twist that makes me want to read book three r...

Wow. That's all I can say. This book did not disappoint. It neatly wrapped up many of the unanswered questions and confusion that had plagued me in book 3. The rich imagination of James Dashner, clearly came out in this book, as absolutely nothing was predictable. This kept me on the edge of my c...

I have loved this series from the very beginning, and this final volume was no different. Tick and his friends come to a stunning conclusion, and I won't add spoilers here to ruin the adventure for you. My only complaint is that I would have loved to see this series end with the originally planne...
The Maze Runner Files (2013)

Los Expedientes Secretos más que un libro viene siendo un complemento de la saga completa de The Maze Runner y no puedo evitar sentirme un tanto decepcionada. ¿Por qué? Porque la extensión es bastante corta y no la considero de gran utilidad como para crear un libro propio que bien pudo estar com...

Muy bueno. Ayuda a entender mejor algunas cosas, aunque me hubiera gustado que fuera más extenso y que incluyera más sobre la participación de Thomas en la creación del laberinto. Creo que lo que más me gustó fue el primer recuerdo de Thomas de la llamarada (bastante shockeante) y la última nota...

Mmm... la verdad que tenía grandes expectativas con respecto a este nuevo libro o anexo de la saga. Creí que al ser "expedientes secretos" se iban a revelar todas las dudas y cuestiones que se mantuvieron en secreto y jamás se revelaron en toda la saga. Recuerdos de Thomas, su relación con Teresa...
