Review: The Rules of Thoughts by James Dashner
Michael completed the Path. What he found at the end turned everything he’d ever known about his life—and the world—completely upside down.
He barely survived. But it was the only way VirtNet Security knew to find the cyber-terrorist Kaine—and to make the Sleep safe for gamers once again. And, the truth Michael discovered about Kaine is more complex than they anticipated, and more terrifying than even the worst of their fears.
Kaine is a tangent, a computer program that has become sentient. And Michael’s completing the Path was the first stage in turning Kaine’s master plan, the Mortality Doctrine, into a reality.
The Mortality Doctrine will populate Earth entirely with human bodies harboring tangent minds. Any gamer who sinks into the VirtNet risks coming out with a tangent intelligence in control of their body.
And the takeover has already begun.(Goodreads)
James Dashner I'm never sure what to do with you.Michael has learned the truth or his origins, and Kaine has begun to affect the real world, he's begun to put tangents into human bodies and Michael and his friends are the only ones who can stop it. However that becomes a bigger problem than anticipated when they start to doubt the VNS, and rightfully so might I add.
Michael, Sarah, and Bryson are in the real world now and it's not as easy to manipulate as the Sleep, especially because they're wanted by the police. These poor kids, they just can't catch a break, they're on the run from everyone.
When it finally looks like everything is going to be alright (as in I thought there might only be two books and everything would end happily ever after) everything completely went to crap. Michael and the other had been seriously manipulated and we don't know who to trust any more. Then in a very James Dashner, we're left with a major cliff hanger and now I have to wait a whole freaking year to figure out what in the heck is going on. Thanks James, love you too.
