What could James Dashner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
He could have linked it better to the maze runner trilogy, giving some insight, some new facts about the political background.
What character would you cut from The Kill Order?
The main characters are badly chosen in general. To make the prequel interesting to read, the story should be about the politicians giving the kill order, rather than the victims who only get a few glimpses of what is happening.
Any additional comments?
I absolutely loved the maze runner trilogy and was looking forward to finally getting a load of answers in the prequel. However the author chose not to reveal anything that you didn't already know at the end of the trilogy. About 70% of this novel consists of close combat fights that are described in detail. I was utterly bored by it, and totally unsatisfied with the lack of a story.
I hope that the next book in the series, "The Fever Code" will be the real prequel we've all been waiting for.

So real, so disgusting at moments and so horrible in other moments, the story presented grips you and holds you to the bones until you finish it.
Struggled a bit to finish but not because of story or narrator, but because of some horrible images and troubles of comprehending the picture. Yes, the story gets complicated at times, but it never gets boring or loses pace or quality of details or storyline.
The narrator was fine as before.
I would recommend this audiobook mostly to those strong of character and not to the faint of heart. I myself get scared barely and rarely in horror movies, yet the images here were hard to bare or imagine at times.
Profound story telling with great ideas and great narrator made it another good read and unique through its style and world.
P. S.: Better listen to this only after you've listened to all three books in the series. Otherwise it would be unclear in some places and spoilers for the series in other parts. It's best understood together and after the whole series, also this prequel completes the series with new understanding and like a great picture puzzle it comes together. It's like the ideas behind (reasons of/ideas at the base of) the series summarized in a story.
