What's the story all about


It’s the end of the line.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.

Will anyone survive?

What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.

The truth will be terrifying.

Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.

The time for lies is over.

What do i think

Dreaming about the grievers

Here’s my short review:

Now here’s the finale of the series! YES! *clap-clap* AND we’re all expecting that this will be having a very good ending and closure.

But then, this book left me hanging on a ‘CLIFF’

Since I’m being honest with my reviews, here goes my rants again…

I read TMR series, because we all know how interesting the premise was and how it arouse the curiosity of the fellow readers around the globe. YES, it all started with a rare and captivating story, that’s why I was so enthralled with the first book, but the next books went down awfully and notoriously (Sorry Mr.Dashner). This eagerly anticipated story turned out to be a HUGE LETDOWN for me. There are some scenes that really touched my heart and scenes that struck me some terror, but still… my questions left UNANSWERED.

As for the plot and story line of the Death Cure, I found it absurd and atrocious (My apologies again Mr. Dashner, I’m just being honest here.). Thinking about how ridiculous some of the scenes in this book makes me laugh. I do not get it. I don’t know where the story goes. It seems like, he kept on fitting a lot of unnecessary details just to make it look nice and smooth. But no, it wasn’t like that for me. It’s kinda boring actually. *swears*

I was not surprised about the fact when I suddenly fell asleep right when I was leafing through the last pages of the book. It was like I am still reading it because I’m so close at the ending of the story and that. Was. Another. Cliche. Moment. I love their adventures, but not too much. The building of interest and excitement promptly collapsed because of the additional scenes/moments that should not be there in the first place. –  just like what I’ve said earlier.

80-90% of this book made me felt the confusion and uncertainty (…of how i’m going to rate this one again…)

“Thomas, we need your brain.”

– Ch.58, page 262

I don’t know what’s the sole purpose of Thomas’ dreams. It seems like it was an excess part to the story. Lucky you Thomas, you tend to sleep and dream a lot. I envy you right now. 😦

“What’re you thinking with that head of yours?” Brenda asked.

– Ch.73, page 321

Me: Nothing. Just pure mockery about this book. *meh*

What made me snap is the ENDING. I don’t know exactly if it’s a happy ending or whatever… it’s an open-ending that makes another additional questions in my head.

Why is it the Wicked always refer themselves as a good organization despite of all the cruelty and brutal acts they’ve done to find the cure? Dashner left some answers (just a little…) but it’s not enough

Who is Chancellor Paige? What is this place they referred as ——– and how come it exist when we all know that after the Flare incident, everything is already destroyed, that the place already laid in ruins… Where is this place? Is this another hologram made by the Wicked? Just. Woah.


*spoiling a little bit…sorry*

A HUGE *HAHAHA* from me. This is ridiculous! LOL
