Synopsis

Read the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. The Maze Runner is now a major motion picture featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster and the second book, The Scorch Trials, is soon to be a movie, hitting theaters September 18, 2015! Also look for James Dashner’s newest novels, The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts, the first two books in the Mortality Doctrine series.
 
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.

The Maze Runner
May 26th, 2015
A fun filled, action packed, amzing book. If you luke the Hunger Games, the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, you're sure going to like this. Its full of cliff-hangers and there seems to be a new problem every 2 or so chapters. Sooooooo good!

Fantastic

My wife listened to the audiobook version over a year ago. When she described the story, I could not have been any less interested. We went as a family to see the movie and I loved it! I sought out the book to compare it to the movie. Even though I already knew the story, the book had me riveted from start to finish. It was written in a plain, simple style. The characters were, for the most part, well-developed. Despite being a YA novel, it was easy for me as an adult to read. I admit to being highly annoyed by the teenage angst that beats readers over the head. For this reason, I avoid a lot of YA novels. But The Maze Runner has none of this. The story unfolds at a steady clip that kept me locked in throughout. I felt the ending was a little anti-climatic (perhaps because I already knew what happened), but it was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to book 2.

The idea of the worlds is really thought provoking, but it seems to peter out at the end. I liked the book but I wish it would have been longer.

Read it before you see the movie. If you've already watched the movie, read it, and ask yourself, "how could the movie leave out so many good parts?"

This book is beyond captivating! It entranced my thoughts even while I was not reading it. The writing was done so well,and the mystery through the who book was just enough frustration to keep reading to find answers. I only put this book down when I had to! A must read for anyone!
