The Maze Runner: Maze Runner, Book 1

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.

    "ok"

    Honestly there are only slight differences from the movie and you could watch or read it no need for both.

    "Amazing Story"

    This book had an amazing storyline that really appealed to me. The narrator was equally as impressive in his duties to tell the story. I would definitely recommend this for reading who like to use there imaginations to really make the story come alive.

    "A Fantastic Listen Even IF You Saw The Movie First"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Maze Runner to be better than the print version?

    Well, I prefer audio. I fall asleep reading because I have to read and write on the PC all day. But I'd be happy reading this book. I'm sure my imagination would do just as great a job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character. Just enjoyed listening to his thoughts and experiencing his struggles and problem solving.


    What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

    Super. Great young voice, nice tone. Does fine with male and female conversations.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I can only listen for 2 hours at a time to any book. I listen and walk.


    Any additional comments?

    I read all 3 and would love to read more of this type from the author.
