Wow, this book was amazing. At first I thought I never would give it five stars because I don't particularly like those kind of books but James Dashner surprised me. The book was never boring. Thomas irritated me sometimes and I'd already figured out some things well before he did but still, the constant tension kept drawing me in, making me want to know what happens in the end. Chuck was an interesting character, turning from the annoying kid to the one who gave Thomas hope. I feell bad for what happened to him. I really hoped he would get out of there and be happy, if not for finding his mother. He deserved it. His death was heart-wrenching.I can't wait to sink my teeth into The Scorch Trials.
