Publisher's Summary

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

    "2. it felt like i was in the Maze With Them"

    Nearly flawless performance. Very well done with the different voices of the characters except for Theresa's voice; she sounded like a drag queen, but maybe that was as good as it gets when a guy attempts a girl's voice?

    "can't wait to start the next book!"
    What did you love best about The Maze Runner?

    I really enjoyed the writers style the way they explained stuff in detail without making it so drawn out and wordy you would get bored.


    What did you like best about this story?

    enjoyed the different personalities


    Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?

    I liked them all but was pretty bummed when one character in particular died I had hoped it would have spared him but it made for a compelling scene when the character died!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it continued on at a good clip and I found I would lose track of time because I got so inthralled in what was happening


    Any additional comments?

    looking for next book right now.

    "Need more info"

    This is a good book for those who enjoyed the TV series, "Lost." Myself I need more info on the plot. More why. My wife has finished the series. Even though she won't tell me anything, it doesn't sound like a happy ending. I don't like that.

    "if you like Hunger Games and Divergent"

    The Maze Runner is along the lines of Hunger Games and Divergent. Good Young Adult book with generally good characters. I didn't like that there wasn't a lot of diversity to the group of kids both gender and racial diveristy are missing. I hope the second book proves to be more diverse.

    "Now watch movie"

    Not too shabby, rushed so I could finally watch movies. Does seem like there's a genre thing going for Hollywood now though. If ya get my drift.
