Although this series has an odd plot, it is still filled with adventure and action. Throughout the book, you get more and more confused, and at the end of the book, you still do not get all of the answers. The remaining questions are answered in the last book of the trilogy, "The Death Cure." Although this was a good book, it gets pretty confusing in the middle, and you really have to think. However, if you have read "The Maze Runner," you should continue on with this series and finish, although the ending of the trilogy is still kind of odd.
