Remember how I mentioned the rage? Yeah, I had plenty of that. You know how there’s those villains you love to hate (Warner, anyone?) and the ones you truly love to hate because they’re awesomely complex? Yeah, well Scorch’s bad guys weren’t like that. I seriously hated them. Well I didn’t quite hate Zara with a burning passion, more like extreme disgust. Heloise and Norwood made me want t spit and scream and punch someone, though. I’m actually still not sure whether that’s a good or a bad thing.
Things I did enjoy:
-- the dry, dar humor
-- Lex and Driggs’ relationship
-- Pip and Bang, but especially Pip
-- That the story’s getting more complicated
The Nutshell: Scorch was an enjoyable read but that’s about all I can say about it. It’s one of those reads that I enjoyed well enough while I was reading, but will probably forget pretty quickly.
