The Fever Code by James Dashner
Main Characters: Thomas, Teresa, Dr. Paige, Newt, Minho, Alby, Chuck, Randall
I loved the characters from the Maze Runner trilogy so much because they were all so brave and unique. However, in this book I found them lacking the excitement that they held in the original series. I felt that all of them came across as kiddish, and their dialogue felt corny, which was something that had not been a problem in the Maze Runner. Nonetheless, it was refreshing to see all of these characters alive and well again!
Again, the writing was rather childish. The dialogue and descriptions were amateurish, and I don’t understand why. It is possible that since the characters were younger, the writing was cheesier, but I don’t know for sure. However, other than being corny there were no other significant problems.
Unlike the original books, this novel was on the slower side. There wasn’t much action because they were stuck inside closed doors all of their life, but the tension and suspense made up for the lack of action in most regards.
The entertainment aspect of this book is what really impressed me. The series will always be one of my favorites regardless of what James Dashner writes next, but this book was just another great one in his long line of Maze Runner books. Overall, I recommend reading this even though I had some issues with it.
