I really enjoyed this one, and I'm a grown-up! It's strong on plot and the pace never slows -- there's a lot of action in this book. The story came to at least part of a conclusion, but the big picture is far from done at the end of this book. Fun book, and I'll happily continue on with this series!
The made-up cuss words like "clunk" seemed clunky themselves at first, but I adjusted quickly. This is a children's book, after all. Why there was only ever one girl in the story has yet to make sense either, so we'll have to see if that's ever explained.
There are some scary parts that might be too much for younger readers. Aggressive icky things drag victims screaming to their doom or chase them around the maze from the title. The camera doesn't fade to black during those times, which will either make the story more exciting or too scary, depending on the reader. An earlier reviewer mentioned this being a little much for his 10-year-old, and I'm not surprised. Age is relative, but parents might want to keep this in mind.
