Really good book. Good characters and setting. Already downloaded books two and three; definitely want to see how this turns out.
I found myself 'needing' a good series after reading The Hunger Games. James Dashner develops memorable characters in this book (and the books that follow) and weaves an addictive storyline. All three books are worth listening to... The narrator does a great job with voices and narration. All in all, deserving of 5 star rating.
for "bright," people they're not very quick. There are too many, "where did that come from?" or, "Show intelligence!" moments in this story. And there's not much foreshadowing. Still it's read well.
Always on the look out for a great story that sweeps me into another world, time, or person. I hate being bored by literature.
I'll admit I almost stopped listening a few times but my 15 year old daughter kept urging me on. I am glad I finished it as the last half picked up the pace and offered a thrilling ride as well as surprising ending. This could be a bit on the frightening/gory side for younger listeners, but a fun read for any teen.
Absolutely love this series! It grips you from the first page up to the end. The complexity of the plot is surprisingly refreshing!
I think my expectations for this book were too high. It was a great idea. The lingo was way too juvenile "shuck, clunk, etc". It was as if they were inserting profanity through the whole think and it got way old. It moved too slow for me, also.
This one didn't meet my expectations. I was expecting something as exciting and engaging as The Hunger Games but The Maze Runner doesn't measure up. There are a lot of things happening throughout this story with very little explanation of why. Which is the question I kept asking for at least half of the story. By the halfway point, I started to form my own theories which pretty much turned out to be true so that may mean it's a bit predictable. The narration was decent. But there does not seem to be a good premise for the overall story. Did some research on the next two titles and reviews indicate this continues to be a problem throughout the series so I won't be continuing with the series.
