I'm not new to the concept of hate-audience. I've watched things in the past for the sheer and sole purpose of complaining about their shittiness afterwards. Actually, about twenty hours ago Vince forced me to watch Hansel and Gretel 2013 (NOT the Clint one, some random one) because it was so bad. Which, yeah. Human beings don't have that many intestines, and they're not rock hard.

What is new, for me, is being a hater for a book. Normally if it sucks I just put it down and pick up another one of the billion I own, or have rented (I generally check out about 50 at a time at the library). But the Maze Runner trilogy was different. I guess because I'd built it up in my mind. It was always with the dystopian books, which is MY JAM, and when I'd speed read at Chapters changing locations every half hour so they wouldn't kick me out, it was always just low enough on my list to not get to it that time. I always figured it was a cool dark-future version of the Theseus and Ariadne myth.

NO. No it is NOT. It is about stupid people, doing things they know full goddamn well to be stupid, and doing them anyway. And not even in a funny way, like the Jackass films. No, it's shit like being 100% aware that they have memory blocks and not consenting to the machine that unblocks them, despite complaining for the entire book before that life would be so much better if they could ~remember~

By the third book, I was reading it ONLY because I figured a few of the characters would die from their stupidity, and I needed to see it happen. I wanted every single one to die horribly.

FUCK YOU BOOK. FUCK YOU. I'M GONNA READ SOME DIANA WYNNE JONES NOW TO GET THE AFTERTASTE OF YOUR SHIT OUT OF MY BRAIN.
