    One thought on “The Kill Order”

    1. I can describe this book to you in a single word: disappointment. With a big capital D. See, the thing is, The Maze Runner was one of my favorite series ever… until the last book, which I hated. So the only reason I picked this book up was in hope that it would redeem the series for me and answer my bajillion questions. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. The Kill Order just failed to live up to The Maze Runner.I think the thing that bothered me the most about this book was that it was not ab [...]

    2. I would just like to say: How on earth can you rate this without even reading it?---It seems that I got an unexpected amount of 'likes' for this so-called review but I still don't get why people rate books without reading them. What are they thinking?Anyway, I don't think I'll be making a real review because I'm terrible at writing (as evidenced by my mistake before this edit: using the word anyways instead of anyway).

    3. My first ever 1 star review. Well done 'The Kill Order', you deserve it. Before Reading it-Oh I hope this is good!During and After reading itSo here's what I didn't like about this book (basically everything)-I couldn't get myself to read more than 50 pages per day. -I thought about giving up constantly.-The characters were boring, bland and flat-forced, vague and unnecessary relationships -stiff and unnatural dialogue-people dying before I could care, or remember who they were-inconsistencies i [...]

    4. Actual Rating: 3.5 starsThere are the books that either have too little action and you're bored to tears reading said book, or book that have too much action, and too little of everything else. The Kill Order tends to fall in the latter category of books, and I'll bet that was where Dashner was intending The Kill Order to fall. The plot for The Kill Order is simple - it's the end of the world, sun flares are destroying the Earth, and a group of teenagers (are they teenagers?) are trying their be [...]

    5. Now I enjoyed this book. It's before the maze runner, I think it said 13 years. Anyway, it was a pretty dark book. I felt bad for this group and what was happening to them. And holy crow, what those evil people did to Lana. I mean they did evil things to a lot of people but this was one of the group and these freaks were off their nut! Also at the very end we get to read about Thomas as a young boy before all hell broke loose in his world. It was just a page or so. Either way I enjoyed it =)

    6. Well. First let me start off my saying that I am extremely disappointed about the fact that the series is now done. I started this book yesterday afternoon, and now, at 2 in the morning, I've finished it. And let me just say HOLY CRAP. THIS BOOK. I CAN'T. I thought all the other three were good, but this book made me so overwhelmingly.I don't even know. So many feelings. Can I just vent? I'm going to vent, OK?(view spoiler)[ So firstwhere do I even freaking begin honestly. Alright, let's just st [...]

    7. DNF at 47%"Mark jumped to his feet, pulling Alec's arm. The entire area around them shook as it rose, and it took all of Mark's effort not to fall again. He knew that what was happening had to be impossible, and it made him wonder about his mental state."I know that scene is supposed to have me at the edge of my seat, but the only thing I can think of right now is the lack of cheese sticks in my house, and that makes me wonder about my mental state. After the fuckfest of The Death Cure, I wasn't [...]

    8. I was only informed that this book was coming out when I was scouring through my Kindle store, looking for free books. And I saw this and I was like, "Hmmat sure does look like the Maze Runner and the other books in that crappy trilogy". And then I looked at the info and found out that's a prequel. A prequel.[image error]I don't LIKE prequels. I wanted to know what happened to stupid Brenda and idiotic Thomas. Not Teresa and Thomas (who, by the way, should have been together NOT Brenda and Thoma [...]

    9. ffffff, we have to wait until August? And yeah, people, this is a prequel. It's before The Maze Runner even took place. I don't know what other people thought, but this trilogy is one of the best I've read and I don't like this genre of book. I am thoroughly looking forward to this book. I do have high expectations for it, and I do think they'll be met. October 5, 2012So, starting to read this, I kind of said to myself "what do Mark and Trina have to do with everything else?" but I gave it a cha [...]

    10. So disappointing. I liked the prologue and the epilogue, I felt the rest of the book was completely pointless except for the character Deedee and the explanation of the origins of The Flare. Which a whole book was not needed for those things. It was a ton of action which got really boring, and I just don't see the point of the story. It was fairly entertaining at times, but compared to the rest of the series it was pretty crappy.

    11. First DNF of the year. I got to about 75 pages in and realized:I DON'T GIVE A SHIT WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE PEOPLE Really that's it. I loved the Maze Runner books, devoured them back when they were released but I think this book is a perfect example of reading tastes changing over time.

    12. Had to DNF this at about 150 pages. I'm just not interested in the "Maze Runner" world anymore and the story didn't grip me at all. Meh.

    13. Before reading the book:Wow, this sounds interesting!_____________________________________________________________After reading the book:Well, that was disappointingI'm gonna warn you guys, and you should take it seriously as a fair warning:Do NOT read this book and/or review if you haven't read the ENTIRE Maze Runner Trilogy.Just don't if you're planning on reading the trilogy. At least not if you don't want to get spoilers for the whole three books.Now that it's set i will start off by mention [...]

    14. The Kill Order is the much anticipated prequel to The Maze Runner series by the incredible James Dashner. I can't even begin to express how badly I wanted this book. Dashner is one of my all time favorite authors. He's the reason I found my love for post-apocalyptic/dystopic books which provoked me to want to read more in this genre.This installment takes place thirteen years prior to the initial time setting of the series, which was before Thomas and the Glade, and even before WICKED was create [...]

    15. Cuando empece a leer este libro no sabia que esperar, en especial con ese prologo que en lo personal me dejo en shock!Fue algo desconcertante cuando vi que no era sobre los mismos personajes, pero conforme pasaban un poco los capítulos me resigne que iba a ser diferente. No fue lo que esperaba, creí que iba a narrar todo el proceso de armado del laberinto y CRUEL, me sorprendió encontrarme con una historia independiente a Thomas y compañía, con personajes nuevos y la verdad la historia empe [...]

    16. RESEÑA COMPLETAUfff, no estoy segura de poder decir algo coherente, lo acabo de terminar y son demasiadas cosas que asimilar.Fue un libro grandioso que me hizo sufrir como loca. No fue lo que esperaba, creí que iba a narrar todo el proceso de armado del laberinto y CRUEL, me sorprendió encontrarme con una historia independiente a Thomas y compañía, con personajes nuevos.También creí que todos los interrogantes que La cura mortal nos dejó iban a tener su respuesta, pero en el fondo sabía [...]

    17. Also posted here: wintrywords/2012/I feel like curling into a little ball and punching a Crank in the face after reading only half of The Kill Order. There’s not much else I can do anymore, feeling like my life is a lie.I am a huge fan of The Maze Runner series so when I found out there was going to be a prequel I about had a heart-attack. When I somehow manage to land an ARC, I am pretty sure I did indeed die of a heart-attack. My zombie is typing up this review now. The neighbors probably he [...]

    18. Not to be a freak, butholyfreakingcrapi'mexcitedokayididn'treallyevenlikethelastbookverymuchbutohmygodohmygodyesyesyes!Freakout over.I'm just really excited to read how this all starts!EDIT: 3/2/2012New cover. I really, really like it. Let's just hope that it reflects how good the book is.

    19. I had read the Maze Runner series a while back, but had never gotten to this book because I hadn't thought that a prequel would be as enjoyable as the main series.Honestly, I do feel that my prediction was right. I flew through this book - I'm not sure why but it didn't draw me in the way The Maze Runner did.Could live with or without it.

    20. Mmmmm, no me gustó. Pesado, insustancial, un hastío interminable. Creía que Dashner con este libro me iba a dar las respuestas que no me dio en la trilogía. Pero no. En algunas partes es entretenido, eso tengo que aceptarlo; también tiene un buen inicio. Sin embargo, está lejos de ser considerada —en mi opinión— una buena novela.

    21. That was a nice ride. actual rating: 3.5 starsMark always loved Trina, even before the world ended. One thing that the sun flares brought together: Mark, Trina. And Mark will do anything to protect her. After their village was attacked and a deadly virus is turning people batshit crazy when it is not killing them is free, the relatively calm life they were living comes to and end and a small group of survivors find themselves on the run again.Surprisingly, the greatest character by far is Mark's [...]

    22. Ever finish a novel and think, well, that was pointless?Hint: I am talking about this novelWe are set far before the first novel - in the heart of the initial Sun Flares and virus outbreak. There's a whole new expendable cast that provides quite convincing fodder. I was annoyed that nothing seemed tangentially related to the The Maze Runner.Every second of the book was spent in heart-pumping action - and boy did I get tired of that. There's something to be said about keeping the audience interes [...]

    23. I have to re-read this book. I'm like 85% sure I'm not going to like it as much the second time, but anyway.Quiero y no quiero releerlo, me gusto mucho la primera vez pero me urge hacerle una reseña decente XD y creo que con la re-lectura ya no me va a gustar tanto. Que pena, pero igual siempre tendré la trilogía original que adoro :D yei

    24. I really wanted so much more from this book. I wanted to know things about the characters that we had been introduced to in the first three books. Instead we are introduced to all new people 13 years prior to the events that take place in books 1-3. All this did was give us a history of what happened, how the world ended, how the virus came to be and how they found out about people being immune. Through the first three books there are references to Thomas and Theresa's involvement in setting up [...]

    25. 2.5.Esta primera precuela es el intento de James Dashner de crear un universo entorno a su saga El corredor del Laberinto, sin embargo, creo que lo que realmente hace es escribir libros de relleno. Y lo digo también por el último de la trilogía original. El Destello es una novela que no me ha dicho nada y que quizá me haya mantenido enganchado a partir de la mitad de la novela, pero es totalmente innecesaria. Si hubiera condensado la historia en algo más corto y la hubiera publicado en form [...]
