DEAR January 15 – The Scorch Trials

The sun is getting closer to the Earth.

Earth’s civilians were getting infected by a disease named the Flare.

A lethal infection.

Notice – Spoilers ahead

The Scorch Trials is the second installment in James Dashner’s award-winning Maze Runner trilogy. The book describes the Glader’s survival through their adventure into and out of the Scorch. Thomas, a 16-year-old teenager suffering from artificial amnesia, leads the Gladers through the blazing Scorch along with Minho and Newt.

Before they embark on the journey, a man, known as the Rat man, reaches out to them. Threatens them, and uses the cure for the Flare in exchange of crossing the Scorch.

My favorite quote from the book was a thought from Thomas:

Hunger. It’s like an animal inside you.

This shows the hunger they’re experiencing. They are willing to kill for food, they are willing to turn into cannibals for food. This thought, although simple, vividly shows their hunger, so the readers can relate to the hunger they’re experiencing.
