The Kill Order Courage

By James Dashner

Courage

Warning: this book isn't for scaredy-cats.

Characters in The Kill Order tend to be pretty insanely brave, especially given the situations they're put in. (We think we'd probably cower in a corner.) Mark, Trina, Lana, Alec, Deedeeā€”the list goes on and on, and every one of these characters displays a tremendous amount of courage.

It seems like the only way people survived after the sun-flares was through true grittiness or hiding behind the government. Which side would you pick?

Questions About Courage

  1. Do any of the characters seem to be the most courageous in your mind? Who?
  2. Does Deedee's courage seem a bit unnatural or unrealistic?
  3. Who is the most cowardly character or group of people? What's the most cowardly event that takes place?

Chew on This

Katie McVoy, the woman who suggested the virus, is the most cowardly character in the whole series because she hid behind the government the whole time.

Trina seems to be the most naturally courageous character, along with Alec.
