Since the first trailer was out and i don't want to take a peek unless i finished reading the first book that i dashed to the finish line to finish this one overnight. Sorry Thomas but you've got nothing on me when it comes to book running...lol!
but seriously this book got me hooked. I was confused about what was really going on in the Glade like Tommy here....coz it's a MAZE duh! But then eventually things were revealed slowly but still mysteriously and many heart stopping action sequence later I wanted a grief serum coz somebody dieeeeee! actually i think it is safe to say that many died...but really the one character you thought is gonna make it somehow just got taken out and It was brutal man! I mean i get that he was kinda annoying the whole time but his intentions were good. I love that there is something nasty and dangerous here, conflicted characters, unexpected characters, probably the ones that went loony. you would be too if you underwent the "changing".
Anyway, i finally watched the trailer and it looks very promising. I love how the maze looks like and those massive walls will look amazing on screen. I noticed some slight change in some scenes in the trailer but only to make it more suspenseful than in the book. Dylan looks perfect for the role of Thomas. @arjaye...don't miss the premiere ng crush mo ha? hehehe!

The character's clumsiness and witty punchlines is the source of much of the hilarity seen in this book. But the story itself is very very weepy! If you're like me, I imagine my characters portrayed by real celebrities. In this novel, The woman is acted by Emily Blunt and the guy is acted by David Gandy. I give this book 5 stars!

Cruel Beauty!!!! it just absorbed me right there and then the moment i picked up the book! and the writer in particular is really good The mood and style she creates in the book is so consistent and compelling. The whole book is a paradox and everything just turns in on itself and twists and turns at every point; from the setting, to the characters, to the plot of the story itself. It's not one of the best books I've ever read but it's a great book! The story is based on the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast. So yeah it is a romance story but the book also focuses on other things like sacrifice and duty to your family and to your country. It was a little scary for me too haha with all the demons and shadows and the sort of creepy castle but that is what kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting to read more!
