I think this book is catered more to teenagers rather than adults. I say that mainly for the language style and character development which will appeal more to young adults. While I enjoyed The Maze Runner and the fast pace of the novel, I found that The Scorch Trials had too much happening for no apparent reason than to add to the action. Most of the book didn't make sense, but perhaps that was the point? I assume it will all come together in the 3rd novel. I hope so.
