Kurzbeschreibung

14. August 2012 The Maze Runner Series

Read the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. The first book, The Maze Runner, is soon to be a major motion picture featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and hits theaters September 19, 2014! Also look for James Dashner’s newest book The Eye of Minds, book one in the Mortality Doctrine series.
 
They thought the end came in a flash.
 
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population.
 
The worst is yet to come.
 
Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage.
 
There is no cure. No escape.
 
They’re convinced that there’s a way to save those who are left—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some you’re worth more dead than alive.
 
The end is only the beginning.

Mehr über den Autor

James Dashner wuchs in einer Kleinstadt in Georgia, USA, auf. Der dichte Wald in dieser Gegend lieferte ihm bereits als Kind viele Ideen für seine späteren Geschichten. Nach seinem Studium arbeitete James zunächst in der Wirtschaft. Doch schon bald fühlte er sich als "kreativer Mensch im Körper eines Buchhalters" gefangen und wandte sich dem Schreiben zu. Seitdem ist er Autor zahlreicher Bücher. Seine Trilogie "Die Auserwählten" eroberte in den USA auf Anhieb die Bestsellerlisten und zieht die Fans nun auch im Kino in ihren Bann: Der erste Band wurde von 20th Century Fox verfilmt, unter anderem mit Dylan O'Brien und Thomas Brodie-Sangster in den Hauptrollen. James Dashner lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen vier Kindern inmitten der Rocky Mountains, behauptet er zumindest.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Wie alles begann!! 26. August 2014
Von Linda
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Handlung beginnt 13 Jahre vor den Ereignissen im Labyrinth und bringt uns zu dem Moment zurück, an dem alles begann. Der Zeitpunkt als die Sonne zum Feind wurde und der nackte Kampf ums Überleben begann. Doch als wäre das nicht schon schlimm genug, treibt auch noch ein von Menschen erschaffenes Virus sein Unwesen. Doch schon bald gerät es außer Kontrolle und niemand scheint vor ihm sicher zu sein.

Nachdem ich die "Maze Runner" Trilogie gelesen und geliebt habe, musste ich mir natürlich auch das Prequel "The Kill Order" holen. Leider konnte das Buch mit seinen Vorgängern nicht mithalten. Die Handlung war spannend, voller Action und voller unvorhersehbarer Ereignisse, also eigentlich 5 Sterne Wert. Die Protagonisten waren es leider nicht.

Mark und Trina waren die reinste Zumutung. Sie hat die meiste Zeit nur rum geheult und war einfach nur nutzlos und er ist ihr die ganze Zeit wie ein verliebter Gockel hinterher gerannt. Leider sind beide das ganze Buch über sehr fad geblieben und man konnte nicht mit ihnen warm werden. Mark wurde erst interessant als das Virus bei ihm zu wirken begann, aber das war leider zu spät.

Der einzige der Handlung voran getrieben hat war Alec. Der alte Soldat war richtig sympathisch und hat Leben in die Story gebracht. Wäre doch Mark nur halbwegs so interessant und belebend gewesen. Auch Thomas und Teresa haben ein kleines Kapitel und wir erfahren, wie sie beim Maze Projekt gelandet sind.

Fazit: Die Handlung war großartig, aber die Charaktere waren einfach nur schlecht. Natürlich nimmt jeder die Figuren anders war, aber mich konnten sie einfach nicht berühren und ich konnte keine Beziehung zu ihnen aufbauen.

Nach der Trilogie ist das Prequel einfach ein Muss, und gewohnt spannend geschrieben erlebt man die ganze Story aus einer anderen Perspektive mit. Top, ich freue mich schon auf die Verfilmungen!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Review of The Kill Order 14. August 2012
Von Lydia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Having just put down The Death Cure, I turned quickly to The Kill Order with the anticipation of getting some answers making my knee shake with excitement. The first pages sent a thrill to me as I saw those few minutes before Thomas was sent up into The Glade ... but then the story took a journey to a place 13 years before.

This new story with new people (Alec, Mark, Trina, and others) was something very familiar to me. Flashing back and forth from this new present to their past, James Dashner does what he does best: writes a racing, thrilling story and slowly placates his reader with tiny bits of information as he does so. And it was easy to like both Mark and Alec, so I gave in to enjoy the ride.

While it was frustrating to not get the history and understand more of certain elements of The Maze Runner trilogy (sorry if that's a spoiler folks - but I know a lot of people out there were very frustrated about knowing things), it was helpful to understand what Dashner did disclose and it pieced together a lot of pieces for me that were left undone by the ending of The Death Cure. Am I completely satisfied with what was given to me? No. And I honestly don't know if there will ever be answers given to us or if Dashner will continue to string us along. But I did enjoy a riveting, full-blown prequel that set up a world that was a place of complete confusion to me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great prequel to The Maze Runner series 14. August 2012
Von Amanda Welling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First Impressions: I loved The Maze Runner series so much that I wanted to really love this book. I have a fascination with wanting to know what happens before I find myself in a story, and I love that Dashner has created a world that existed before the first pages of The Maze Runner were penned. I wanted to know more about the sickness infecting the world, the darkness that had enveloped a crazed planet. Well written as always, the opening pages of this book seemed like they were going to answer a lot of my questions. But, it didn't. I will go into that more later.

First 50 Pages: Besides the brief prologue, there is not too much that is familiar about The Kill Order. You are introduced to a new group of characters fighting a completely different battle. What this book does well, and instantly, is set up the post solar flare world. Everything changes on earth when a solar flare hits and nearly destroys everything. What is left are small settlements and resilient people. That is, until the ships come from the sky and reign a new kind of terror on the flare survivors. Instead of being their salvation, the giant ships sends Mark, Alec, Trina and Lana on a new, horrifying journey.

Characters & Plot: At first, I was a little disappointed that more of the story was not going to be dedicated to the characters I had met in the Maze Runner series. I wanted to know more of their story, for sure. But, Dashner created a whole group of characters that are tough, hardened and yet somehow still vulnerable. Mark, the main character, goes through every emotion possible in the pages of this story. He is hopeful, playful, angry, lost, scared and brave all at once. Alec is a strong support, leader and guide as they try and find their friends and, in the process, discover the dark truth of the disease that is wiping out people and making them go mad.

The story is dark, violent and more than a little disturbing. I found myself repulsed and disgusted on more than one occasion, that's for sure. There is a lot of exposition in this one, and a lot of major battles with people who do not really understand what has happened to them. Overall, the plot is well done from beginning to end, but I was shocked at just how dark and violent it really was!

Final Thoughts: This was not the book I expected it to be. I guess I don't really know what I was expecting. I think I was thinking this would be more of an immediate prequel to the Maze Runner series, but instead it takes a pretty big step back in time and talks a lot more about the origins of the disease flare and the solar flare that nearly destroyed the world. The Kill Order is a really good book, and fits the world of the rest of the series well. I do wonder, however, how new readers to the series will take to this book, especially if they read this as the first book in the series instead of a new part of the story after reading the rest of the books. I would recommend it, although not while eating because it's definitely violent!

1.0 von 5 Sternen The disappointment of the year 25. August 2012
Von Helen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have no idea what Dashner was thinking, but surely he forgot he was writing a prequel. This book has almost nothing to do with the series. I was so disappointed with it I forced myself to read it, muttering at Dashner the entire time.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Prequel to what? 9. September 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This was not a prequel in any way to the original series. Its a bunch of 'run, fight, run' and then at the very end he just threw in a quick reference to one of the original characters. (Almost as if he forgot this was supposed to tie them together!) It was obvious that Deedee was Theresa, but no mention of Thomas until the very end and never did they put those two together. I kept waiting for the story to turn towards the storyline but it never did. It would be like making the prequels to Star wars without Darth Vader ever being mentioned.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Ugh James Dashner 19. Oktober 2012
Von sarah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
WARNING: Some spoilers here from the trilogy and a few details from this book too:

Just read The Kill Order and I totally agree that the violence/fighting was a bit over the top. I've read other reviews that call it "real" and "honest" but, I struggle to understand the "real and honest" physiology that enables an under-nourished kid and old man on the brink of exhaustion to keep fighting and functioning the way Mark and Alec do after they get their behinds kicked all over the place time and time again. I think I'd probably be dead after fight number one. That said, I've never been in a fight so, I guess I don't know. Maybe I would keep going like a zombified Energizer bunny after having my vital organs crushed by repeated punches and kicks, my limbs smashed in doors and pulled out of socket after hanging on to an aircraft in mid flight, and my head consistently bashed in by pieces of metal and other blunt objects. I have a student who missed three days of school because he got a concussion heading a soccer ball. He still can't look at a computer screen nevermind get into an all out death match fight with a gaggle of cranked out zombies. He would never survive in dystopia.

My having never been in a physical altercation of any kind had another downside as I read The Kill Order. I had a super hard time visualizing what was happening in the fight scenes. I couldn't always figure out whose fist was hitting what and which body parts were swinging around to where. There was one scene where someone hit Mark who I was sure had already been killed. It was all pretty much a gory, violent blur that I skimmed through until I got to the part where someone died, passed out, or ran away.

***POSSIBLE SPOILERS FROM HERE ON***
I was also left really unsatisfied with the account of what happened in the year after the flare; I wanted more details about how they made it to Ashville and what everyone elses' story was. How did so many people survive and how did they make it to the camps? The Thomas and Teresa part seemed confusing too. Why did Dashner bother including the tidbits he did about them (assuming that's who the epilogue was about . . .) I have a theory about who Deedee is but, then again who cares if we don't get a sequel/prequel to Kill Order.

And lastly, I guess I am just a little confused about the Kill Order itself. Why did the Post Flare Coalition decide it was necessary? It seemed to me like folks were just sort of plugging along in small settlements, eating food they found in old factories, hunting, keeping cool in the shade and mud huts or whatever. Were there really soooo many people in those little settlements being self-reliant and not bothering anyone else that Earth's resources were being depleted? By the sounds of it, New York City was pretty well wiped out. That's like 10 million people GONE right there! Where are all of these resource depleters and what resources were they depleting? I didn't even realize any of the settlements knew about the other settlements near-by. Why didn't they have socials or dances with each other or something fun!? Dashner made it sound like Mark's peeps were there all alone, but according to the Post Flare folks, there were tons of settlements all over Appalachia and the world?! I'm just not sure I buy that . . .

All in all, I liked The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials ok. I tolerated the Death Cure because it was the last in the series and I was totally underwhelmed there. I probably just should have moved right on past this one but, it just looked so good and I really did wonder about WICKED and was always confused about what the pre-teen darlings T & T actually did before they got old and went into the maze. But Kill Order was sort of lame. If you love gore and fight scenes, enjoy obsessing about what supplies you may want to stock up on or skills you'd like to hone before the apocalypse, or if you're a gambler and are betting that Dashner is going to write a pre-prequel or sequel prequel or whatever and actually answer some of the questions you had after reading the Maze Runner books or answer all of the new ones that popped up after Kill Order, than this book's for you.
