Let me start by saying that I enjoyed this book much better than The Kill Order. I think my problem with The Kill Order-and I think that was also James Dashner’s problem-was the lack of familiar characters. The Maze Runner came out first and it has all these characters you connect with. After that comes The Scorch Trials and then Death Cure. James wrote these books before the Kill Order. He connected with these characters, and then he throws himself into a world where none of them are present. I could tell he wanted to get it over with and so did I.
Like I said, Fever Code was so much better. It was such a relief to see my beloved characters again. I was filled with rage a few times, when parts of Thomas’ memories were put into Newt’s head. I mean, I like Newt just as much as the next person, but those are not his memories.
I was very disappointed in Theresa.
Newt was a lot more likeable in this book than in The Maze Runner.
Minho remains awesome.
There’s a lot more stuff going on. It’s intriguing, because the people you think you can trust, turn out to be the most villainous.
I thought the dialogues, especially from the infected ones, were pretty well thought out.
It had the right amount of details. Some books tend to put in so many details of which I don’t know what they have to do with the story. Fever Code had just enough to make me picture it.
All in all, a very good read.
