Overall Review:  

The third installment of the Jimmy Fincher SagaThe Tower of Air, continues Jimmy's search for the Gifts that will help him defeat "the Stompers" and prevent them from taking over the world.  The Tower of Air shows a continued improvement in Dashner's writing, as characters are further developed, dialogue improves, and the 'plot thickens,' so to speak.  Dashner has employed some successful subplots and mysteries about several characters which lend intrigue to the story and keep the reader interested.  Again, there is blatant foreshadowing, melodramatic language and a tendency to the predictable ; however, it is juvenile fiction and such issues probably would not bother young readers.
