enjoyed getting to know the characters and very much looking forward to the next book
Strong, creative story telling. A lot of thought went into crafting this book, and the series in general. It's a pretty messed up world these kids live in. The movie doesn't do the book justice at all.
Thomas arrives in the Glade with limited memories. He finds himself as the Greenie in a group of teenage boys trapped inside a daily changing maze.
a well-crafted story as Thomas and the boys try and figure out why they're in the maze and who or what is WICKED.
First book I have listen to on audible and enjoyed every minute. looking forward to the next book....
might be good for a young audience but I found the story and characters transparent and childish. young minds might appreciate it.
Kind of a cheasy opening, leading to a pretty well rounded action story that had me hooked pretty hard by the end. I am ready to read the next books in the series.
Overall the story was really well done. It was clearly written for a YA Male to read, as it is pretty male dominant.
It is far better to read/listen to this book then to watch the movie. I actually quit watching the movie half way through, because the book was so much better it made the movie look like garbage.
Good read, well worth the credit.
Good idea for a story line.
I liked Newt, he used his intelligence.
He did a phenomenal job.
No, too frustrating.
The story was good but I really hate when authors dumb down people so they can try to make a story last longer. There is no way people, with the intelligence that these kids have, can't see obvious things. I have read, and listened to, many stories that do this (dumb down a character for one or two things), but then expect us to believe they are really intelligent characters. Either they are really intelligent or they aren't, don't dumb them down for one scene. If you need to make it that the character's aren't aware of something then don't include that something up front and out in the obvious open.
