If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.
 
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
 
Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.
 
Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
 
Everything is going to change.
 
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
 
Remember. Survive. Run.

Make sure to read the book before you see the movie. I give both the book and movie 4.5 out of 5. Mysterious but you feel like you are right in the maze with the gladers. Great read.

The Maze Runner presents a slow start but it grips you when you least expect. It is amazing how the author is able to give you mixed feelings. The choices you make, the feelings you choose to feel.. Get ready for a roller coaster ride in a Maze! Goosebumps aplenty, money well spent.

Just fine
April 15th, 2014
I wouldn't compare this series to the hunger games or divergent. Its more along the line of the delirium saga. I found this is a good representation of a ya series as well. Although I wouldn't recommend this to my friends ( adults that like the ya books) I would recommend it to anyone under 20 who like action and mystery. It keeps you guessing and its not predictable.
