I dont think the audio version plays any part in making the story better. Its all up to you. I prefer audio as I can listen on the go.
THE END! No spoilers, but TRUST it will make you want to download book two asap.
I dont think so.
What a silly question. Who has time to listen to a book all in one sitting? We have hectic lives! But if I could, I would have!
Havent seen the movie as I wanted to "read" the book first. Now off to the cinema to complain that they didnt do the book justice.
So if you're considering the book. Read what its about. Look at the trailer. And then download the book :)
a Fun read.
probably. The end of the book leaves a lot of question to resolve.
Excellent performance. Very good and consistent use of voices and accents to differentiate the characters. It was seamless to the point where you forget he is using different voices.
Yes it would have been perhaps slightly better if it had been a little shorter. It is written as young adult literature - so I felt like it could have moved to the conclusion a little faster.
I was kinda frustrated at times with not getting any answers to the mysteries presented in the book. And then end of the book only answered some of them and presented more mysteries at the end. If this is something you enjoy you will love the book - if you feel like you get kinda ripped off when not everything is resolved - beware.
The book doesn't involve any deep provoking thought or anything but it's just a really good story. The entire journey of this book is constantly making you want to know what happens next and that is a fun story for me. The narrator had many impressive voices that brought all the characters to life. The narrator is male and 99% of the book's characters are male so it really sounded good.
If you're considering watching the movie first or reading/listening to the book first I suggest you DO NOT watch the movie first. It will ruin the whole book. The book is almost like a mystery and what's the point of reading a mystery when the ending has been revealed?
If you like teenage action, which is all the rage these days, you will like this one, too.
I love to listen to audiobooks. My favorite genre's would be Sci-fi and Fantasy.
Must get out!
I actually liked Thomas. I think the author did a great job at creating a sympathetic character that I was able to get behind and enjoy the perspective.
He did a good job at bringing to life the different voices of the boys. He's an excellent reader.
"Get Ready to Run!" ok, I stole that from the actual movie and that should tell you something. The movie is selling well and it is somewhat closely tied to the book.
This book does have some darker scenes with some violence. It's clean for the most part with YA humor so I would recommend it to teenagers. It's written well enough that adults can enjoy it. I listened to it twice now and will be moving onto book 2. Why? Well, I want to read it before the sequel movie comes out next September.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction/fantasy. There is a very good mix of film-worthy elements, including character development and visual descriptors. I couldn't help but see everything in my mind as I made my way through the book. My children joined in with me mid way through and it quickly became dinner discussion material.
I first heard of The Maze Runner by way of movie trailer, seeing Divergent. It intrigued me and felt very novel-esque. So I looked it up and there it was, and a part of a series!
I look forward to see the film franchise develop.
If i would change anything about this book would be to make it shorter, it felt like the writer wanted to extend a topic that could not be.
I would have changed it just by making it a little bit shorter and adding more action scenes, the book would be a lot better.
i loved how easily he made it to picture the running scenes.
I could definitely see this book as a movie. Specially since is coming out this September 25
In addition to everything else, the topic is great cause its something that weirdly enough could happen and that makes it interesting.
I and many others loved the hunger games, this is not even a flea on the hunger games mane. waste not your cash.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
When Thomas goes into the Maze for the first time! Loved it :)
They were all spectacular. He really did an amazing job of reading this story.
I just loved the whole thing. Could not stop listening and when I did I couldn't wait to start again. It is not a funny book per say but has some funny moments. It does have some emotional moments where you feel sad for these young boys and just want to see them win.
Highly recommend this book to both young adults, teens, pre-teens and adults. My 11 year old read it to and she just loved it. Already reading number 2.
Good story that keep me wanting to not stop listening
It was quite unpredictable in long run and fresh
