Book Review: The Maze Runner
I just finished reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner five minutes ago. It was such a riveting, suspenseful, touching, scary, tragic, romantic, sci-fi, awesome book that I finished it in less than a week. It’s a novel about a boy named Thomas who “began his new life standing up”. He was sent to the Glade by the unknown Creators of the Glade. He has no idea where he is – his friends explain it to him. Thomas, like the other Gladers, has no memory of his family, his home, or his previous life. All he knows is his first name. Every month, another boy is sent to the Glade. But the very next day, a girl is sent to the Glade. Thomas feels a strange connection with the girl – mentally and physically. When he and Minho, the Keeper of the Runners, go running in the mysterious Maze one day, they discover something bizarre about the abnormal creatures, Grievers, that roam the Maze. When he and Minho report this to the other Gladers, a plan forms – one that will change lives and alter the history of the Glade forever… A five-star rating goes to this book.
