The Maze Runner Audiobook

The Maze Runner: Maze Runner, Book 1

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.

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.

    "Great Story"

    I really liked the story, I could focus and imagine it with ease. Just as a heads up, it's different than the movie, very much so. The narrator was good, but wasn't as engaging as some other narrators I've heard before. Overall, a great story, I look forward to listening to the next book!

    "Great book for long car trips!"

    My boys loved it, as did I. The narrator did an excellent job (when so many audio books choose the wrong narrator, this one was perfect). We'll watch the movie next.

    "Disappointing"

    I struggled to finish this book througout. The writing style was not my favorite and the narroration was even worse, being quite robotic. After reading Divergent and Hunger Games and loving the dystopian theme I thought the series would spark my interest and pull me in but the storyline was undeveloped and the writing style juvenile in my opinion. Sadly, it was not worth the time and I will not being finishing the series. The ideas were genious but it just didn't communicate well and many ideas were underdeveloped. A disappointment as I really wanted to love this book and series

    "Wow..didn't think I would like it"

    It is not in the genre I am mostly drawn to, however based on the reviews, I gave it a try. Loved it. Had me at the edge of my seat from the start until the finish.

    "Griping and exciting book!"

    The narrator for this book did an excellent job! I enjoyed listening to every minute of it! Many times it was extremely hard to stop listening to it. I can't wait to listen to book 2!

    "not so great"

    Hard to stay interested. Tough to understand. the narrator gives it a very "Thomas the Train" feel.
