My thoughts after I finished this book What the HELL did I just read James Dashner s writing style is nothing like anything I ve ever read, or anything I ever will read.It s simple and complex at the same time It is full of so many contradictions, so many layers, so much depth that it s really impossible to describe his books The thing about James Dashner He does everything for a reason.No detail is too trivial No plot twist too big or small Everything matters In the end, when everything fits to [...]

I go off track my reading challenge schedule I just got a ton of work and I really have to set aside reading the last 100 pages of this book I hate it when work interferes with pleasure reading It s just ain t right Hahaha.Okay back to the book.5 stars.This Dashner novel is very reminiscent of the anime sword art online I really really liked that anime show a lot Plus I was an avid fan of MMORPG back in my days It was the dawn of Ragnarok Online So the inspiration is not really new to me anyway [...]

UGGHH where to begin with this book Let me first say before I go in to dislike mode, that I am a James Dashner fan I loved the Maze Runner even though that series didn t end the way I wanted I still enjoyed it even got my brother boyfriend to read it, which never happens I was pretty disappointed about this book the entire time I was reading it, as you saw from my status update earlier Like I mentioned earlier that I really enjoyed the Maze Runner series it was hard to get into at first because [...]
That plot twist might ve been way out of left field, but it just created logistics problems S And I read this almost in tandem with Brandon Sanderson s Steelheart, which really highlighted for me the main problem with Dashner s books his writing is so clunky It s really awkward.
3.5 Not as bad as some people are saying, not as good as I thought it was going be, either The worst thing is that we re all comparing it with The Maze Runner series, it is not better, so, people get really dissapointed But I liked some details and plot twists, it is also a very fast paced book with no wasted pages at all It has some good funny dialogeI don t know, is not bad or good, it is just entertaining It has the possiblility of a very good continuation, hope I can read it soon I was going [...]
Review originally posted at Book Probe Reviews.After I finished reading The Eye of Minds, the first in James Dashner s new YA sci fi series The Mortality Doctrine, all I basically did was 1 eat in my sleep.2 run in my sleep then wake up in shock horror.3 play the guitar, pretending I m a rock god in my own VirtNetwhile really feeling considerably itchy.Basically The Eye of Minds will mess with your mind.Even Sassy attempted to access the VirtNet againbut she ended up on the floor because I attem [...]
Who knows the true definition of real Real r l adjective 1 Actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact not imagined supposed 2 of a substance or thing not imitation or artificial genuine According to Google s definition of real dictionaries are a thing of the past , anything that is not artificial or an imitation is real Therefore, everything in a virtual reality is purely a figment of our imagination Ah, but the question is, is the VirtNet real If we are able to manipulate our brain to ex [...]
Neden sa g sterip sol vuruyorsun be adam kinci kitab verin bana hemen imdi
Sigh.Okay, if I put on my would kids like this hat, this book is pretty great It s a fast paced techno thriller with a lot of twists and turns to keep the story moving along A good gateway book for reluctant readers, perhaps.If I put on my is this a good book hat, I just want to throw it across the room in frustration and agony While the book certainly falls in line with Tad Williams s Otherland and Conor Kostick s Saga thematically, it s written like a Dan Brown or Brad Meltzer book that focus [...]
Das Ende war so genial ich brauch Band 2
DNF around 18% I read the first 10% or so of this in 2014, because it sounded like something I would love Don t as me why, but I love books or the idea of books that are somehow set around gaming Not being a gamer myself I don t know why this is, but I do So this sounded like the perfect book for me I put it aside quickly then, but recently wanted to give it another chance After listening to an hour and a half or so of the audio, I think I will relegate this one to the DNF pile permanently Dashn [...]
I have a problem with the way Dashner writes.First things first, the book was okay after I finished it I read The Maze Runner really liked it and The Scorch Trials hated it , so this was my third Dashner book and the book that would sort of solidify my opinion of Dashner And I ve decided I don t like the way he writes While I found the book okay as a whole after finishing, it was not fun to read it was just annoying Similar to the Maze Runner series, I appreciate the concept and core story even [...]
When I was reading this I hated the writing style and felt we needed a better a introduction of the characters
Such a bad book Absolutely ridiculous I couldn t finish it I got maybe 25% of the way through, but it was mind blowing and not in a good way.Yes, I understand how a virtual reality game does not need to be realistic But even the real life aspects are totally without any connection with real life Just as an example, why would a government agency kidnap a teenager, and then demand an apology from the teenager when he rebels against his captors And then, the teenager actually does apologize And, wh [...]
This book was pretty meh At first I thought it reminded me of Ready Player One minus the nerd references and the humour But as it went on it reminded me of Ready Player One less and less I don t know if I will continue this series or not I ll see if I ever get in the mood for it again in the future or not.
I met James Dashner at a book event last year and at one of his panels, he challenged the audience to read The Eye of Minds I accepted, bought it, and he signed it for me I m a huge fan of Ready Player One and I just finished Warcross, which I thought was pretty good Being a non gamer, I figured since I enjoyed those 2, I d probably enjoy TEOM as well Hmmmm Not so much.It was ok, and I m giving it an extra star because of the ending and that twist But, I never really connected with Michael, Sara [...]
I read Maze Runner, but other than that I haven t had much experience with Dashner I was disappointed with this book My biggest issue is that if your character is supposed to be a great hacker, or really smart, then he should do some amazing hacking or something really smart Throughout the book I was wondering why the protagonist was ignoring his hacking skills, ignoring clues, refusing to search deeply, or interview potential sources than superficially Overall, this book made me wish I was re [...]
Una historia adictiva, llena de acci n, sin romance lol , que te engancha desde la primera hoja Pronto rese a Para aclarar dudas, no se parece en nada a ECDL
This was definitely a different kind of book I didn t love it, but I also didn t hate it There were parts that were very interesting and parts that kind of bored me The writing style wasn t my favorite ever and some of the wording and descriptions and such felt weird to me There was a lack of flow, everything happened very fast It was kind of hard to follow The characters were likable, but also sort of generic Their personalities won t stick out in my head at all The ending was neat, but didn t [...]
Kindly skip the sentences that wereunderlinedas they will contain spoilers.Before I get into the review of the novel, I d like to point out that I was expecting this to be a bad rip off of Ready Player One RPO s one of my favorite novels, so I had mountain high expectations for The Eye of Minds Just like James Dashner s The Maze Runner, this one literally started with a mystery I kinda like that about Dashner A mystery at the very beginning tends to make the reader speculate possible events, alt [...]
Disfrut mucho la lectura de la saga Maze Runner y ten a muchas expectativas para este nuevo libro de James Dashner, especialmente trat ndose de una historia que est tan relacionada al mundo de los videojuegos, algo a lo que me siento muy cercano.Por eso lamento decir que este libro me result una triste decepci n.Los personajes me resultaron huecos y aburridos, adem s de poco desarrollados En ning n momento logr sentir ninguna empat a con Michael, el protagonista, y tanto sus amigos como el resto [...]
This book surprised me for the better I didn t expect it to be bad, as I d already enjoyed the Maze Runner series, but because I m not keen on video games I thought maybe I wouldn t enjoy it as much I was very wrong Whether you like video games or not you can definitely find enjoyment in The Eye of Minds It s almost like an adventure or fantasy book except that everything that going on isn t actually real, it s all in the world of the VirtNet Yes, the plot was very interesting and action packed, [...]
This is the first book by James Dashner I read and I definitely enjoyed it I found myself constantly rooting for Michael, Bryson and Sarah the whole way through The VirtNet world the author created is amazing This book was fast paced and drew me in right from the beginning I did not see the ending coming, however, there were clues I was so enthralled with what was happening and what would happen next, that I missed them I can t wait to see what happens next This book will keep you on the edge of [...]
RESE A COMPLETA EN LEEE AELA WTF Dashner Ese final por Dios No se lleva las cinco estrellas porque la primera mitad tuvo sus altibajos, pero a este tipo le encanta jugar con la mente del lector y con su cordura, agreguemos , cre un universo muy rico y una historia brillante.Hac a mucho que no me torturaban tanto.
HALA THAT REVELATION WTF
Had a chance to read the manuscript of this amazing novel, and I honestly think it is going to be even bigger than Maze Runner If you are a Dashner fan, this is going to blow you away And if you aren t this will make you one.As with all Dashner books this is a great combination of action and what the heck is going on here Great read
En estos momentos minutos despu s de terminar el libro no s ni c mo sentirme Tengo rabia porque no fue lo que esperaba, en parte yo misma me cree unas falsas expectativas pensando Es James Dashner Seguro ser asombroso y qu va, no est ni por los pelos a la altura de The Maze Runner y por TMR me refiero al primer libro, no a la trilog a como tal.El libro no me convenci del todo en ning n momento Como primera instancia los cap tulos aparte de ser cortos, estaban divididos como en ocho a veces menos [...]
