Review of THE RULE OF THOUGHTS by James Dashner
Dashner created a unique and fun story world with the first book. This is a great book for gamers because of the world of the narrative. Michael, the main character, is literally one of the most complex characters I've ever read. And his friends create a nice mini-community that creates a feeling of warmth even in the midst of the insane circumstances they find themselves in.
Dashner blew me away with the first book, especially the end. This book has only continued to cement Dashner as one of the most innovative storytellers around in my mind. Kaine is a truly compelling villain, and the narrative force of the story kept me reading until the end. As the second book in a trilogy, this book creates plenty of hunger for what Dashner has in mind for book 3.
