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.

An action-packed, riveting, fast-paced, page-turning novel, The Maze Runner is everything you could ask for and more.

Typically, I don’t go for books with lots of action and a male protagonists, but The Maze Runner had me enthralled. I honestly don’t have any criticism for this novel – it was believable, realistic, fast-paced but by no means rushed, the characters were quite intellectual, it had great character development not only of the main protagonist, but the side characters – it was just a brilliant read.

That ending though… Well, you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve read the book…

I highly recommend this for fans of dystopian, adventure, sci-fi, with a hint of romance.

I’m interested to see how the movie turns out – if it’s anything like the book. I suspect as much, but you never know…
