Maze Runner: Death Cure Review

Maze Runner:Death Cure Review

So at last we have arrived at the end of the Maze Runner Trilogy and I can now breathe a sigh of relief – safe in the knowledge that Minho survived until the bitter end (and that’s really all that matters! Right?!). I found James Dashner’s narrative to be slightly patchy and dragged in some chapters. Overall though, the book remained fast-paced and entertaining yet, became tinged with a darkness that brought several moral and ethical issues into play.

Finally, the author has heeded my oh so brilliant wisdom (not really, but I like to think that he has) and given Teresa a purpose that she lacked in the previous two books, being more of a deadweight then actual help. Not only Teresa, but the remaining characters all seem to have a purpose in the final book as they come face to face with the harsh brutality of the world.

All in all, Death Cure is a brilliant ending to the Maze Runner Trilogy and it remains a depiction of the future which is not as far-fetched as humanity would like to believe.

So what did you think of the ending?

    1. I completely agree with you. Newts death was symbolising that no outcome can come to pass without sacrifice and I think that Dasher knew that this particular character who was considered the glue would hit the reader the hardest…and it sure did.

  1. I don’t think it was a sacrifice so much as a way of repenting her previous acts. Teresa was definitely one of my least favourite characters particularly, because of the fact that she didn’t seem to have much of a purpose in the first two books; only coming to life as a character in the third book.
