The Rule of Thoughts (The Mortality Doctrine #2)
Each scene and chapter felt like a ride, and it was pretty thrilling to see how the characters would react and deal with all the crazy that was happening around them.
This book takes off like a rocket, right where the last one finished off. If you're new to this, I wouldn't start with this book because you will feel a little loss.
But for those of you that have read this, Michael is still coming to terms with his new reality and his newfound "fight" with Kaine, the ultimate tangent.
Michael, and his two best friends, Sarah and Bryson--are determined to stop Kaine, and his evil schemes.
What's really good about this book, is that it's pretty much non-stop action. There's never a dull moment. There's always something going on--so boredom won't be an issue.
There isn't much romance, so if like me you crave it, you won't be getting it here--but the good thing is you won't find yourself missing it.
I liked the twists and turns and found myself on the literal edge of my seat at times.
My only suggestion is that this book be shared with a younger audience. I find that from the ages of the characters, to the pacing--to the overall feel of the story, I think it would better appeal to teens under the age of 18. I believe there will be a better understanding, and quite frankly I think they'd enjoy it more.
However if you're a Dashner fan like myself, you won't be disappointed. There's a lot uncovered in this book, but there's still a lot more to go--without feeling like you're left on a cliffhanger--I know how much some of you hate that.
If you loved Maze Runner, you won't be disappointed, but strap in because it is a ride.
The Rule of Thoughts action does not stop from the moment Michael wakes up to the very last page.
Just like Dashner's previous books, the reader is left to guess what is real and what is virtual. The complex plot with twist and turns not only keep readers on the edge of their seats but also leads to bigger questions. Dashner weaves in issues of morality and humanity and leaves the reader to battle the question just what role computers and virtual reality should play in our future.
The Rule of Thoughts is a fun and entertaining read. A must read for fans of The Maze Runner. With a cliff hanger ending, it will leave readers begging for the next book. I know I am!
