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.

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.
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.
So glad I found the series didn't know it would be so good can't wait to listen to book two!
Horse trainer by day, super hero by night, book lover all the time.
Fast paced adventure. There is always something new to mess with plans
Hmmm... Possible the Golden Compass due to humanity's salvation being put on the shoulders of a child
Near the beginning, when we first see Thomas in the glade. Despite the situation, the Gladers have managed to create a well functioning society. There's something beautiful about that.
I think they already did...This book is one WICKED ride.
The story is great and although I recommend it, there are a few things I'd change (no spoilers here though ;)
If you're in the mood for a tale that will keep you running back for more, this may be a good choice for you. A well written story has been paired with the perfect voice of Mark Deakins to create an enthralling experience. After having seen the first movie with my son and then having him share with me that he has read all of James Dashners books, I decided that I wanted to dive a little deeper into the story. I was not disappointed at all with that decision. James Dashner has created a world and crafted his words so well that it is easy to let your imagination take hold and visualize the entire scene. I can't wait to start the next book and I feel certain that you will feel the same way. Enjoy!
I love the story the ending is so good I've seen the movie but I enjoyed the book more if you have watched the movie I really recommended to listen to this audio because it's very easy to understand and you can listen to it in the car it's easy to use and very time consuming!
