Sloppy, nonsensical writing. The Death Cure unraveled like a ball of yarn...
on January 29, 2015
This was, by far, the weakest book of the first three in the series (I have yet to read the fourth book). I didn't have the urge to read anymore halfway through, but pushed on just to see if it got any better. The author got very sloppy near the end...and did a downright terrible job of wrapping things up. I felt cheated and wanted my money back.
-Brenda is an annoying character...because the way her relationship with Thomas develops is very forced. They do not have the connection he and Teresa had. He and Teresa belonged together for better or for worse--the author showed us this through how Thomas felt he was cheating on Teresa with Brenda...
-Terwsa forgave Thomas for not waking up to find her when she called out to him during the dorm raid. Chuck had no real reason for being killed (when wicked couldve simulated his death as they did with the hanging bodies). Teresa did not deserve to die. Thonas couldve trusted her if hed bothered to regain his memory. He doesnt care enough when she is crushed....he leaves her to die alone and goes off to make out with Brenda...totally unbelievable. He trusts and forgives Brenda freely but never lets Teresa in. We never learn what Teresa got back from her memories...but we learn that it would not have altered Thomas to regain his. Yet he never does. Brenda gets everything she wants in the end but Teresa dies alone. Thomas becomes a complete and total narcissist...a coldblooded killer who is a disgrace to the sacrifices made for him.
-Teresa and Thomas are important in the 1st book. The second book their relationship gets weird. Then in the last book Thomas is up Brenda's butt for nonreal reason. Teresa deserved to live at the end more than Thomas did.
