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.

I read a review that said, "Read this first!" You do NOT have to do that. I read all 3 in the original series first then read this one. I can't say reading this book first will do you any good really, in reference to understanding anything prior to reading it in order of release date. I liked this book and I felt at peace w/how the plague/illness started. I would have liked to have learned more about what Thomas and the others did while in the care of WICKED. It wouldn't have made a difference to the story, it's just what I was curious about. No big.
This will show you how the world breaks down more so than Book 2 & 3. Very interesting and well worth the read. I gave the 4 stars on "story" only because I wanted to hear more about Thomas during his stay w/WICKED. That's all.
