The Maze Runner [Review]

384 pages [Kindle]
First Published 1 January 2009

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

My Thoughts:

It was hard for me to get into this book at first because the way it starts out is that you are right along with Thomas, the main character, who remembers nothing of his old life and is thrown into a strange place with 50 other teenage boys who know nothing of why they are where they are. So you are kind of in the dark with Thomas. It does get really intense and the book ends in a huge cliffhanger! I cannot wait to read the next one :) 

I would say this is the Hunger Games for guys :)
