The Scorch Trials Tough-o-Meter

By James Dashner

Tough-o-Meter

(2) Sea Level

Unless you're confused by Newt's accent (so saying the word "bloody" as an adjective to describe everything under the sun), The Scorch Trials should be a pretty easy read. Not only are the chapters short (just like The Maze Runner), but the language is fluid and easy to follow. Plus, there's a good amount of action and suspense, which makes the book fly by.
