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.

    "Best Book EVER!!"

    I love this book so much. I think that it is very well read. It is an AMAZING story. So well written, it really grabs me and makes me feel the way the kids are feeling. So much better than the movie. Love love love the book.

    Story
    "It was okay"
    Would you listen to The Maze Runner again? Why?

    Probably not, because while it was a good book, it didn't grab me at once and it's just not that kind of book I want to re-read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Minho and Newt. These two characters are awesome. Thought I liked Thomas too.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was okay. He brought the characters to life and gave them their own personality.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Get ready to run.

    "A good read. An even better read for young reader"

    A good read. An even better read for young reader. This is a perfect younger teen preteen book. There is violence but no sex stuff and no swearing.

    "Hooked me from the very beginning"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book and really held my attention. I couldn't wait to finish the book and see how the movie compared. I also couldnt wait to start book #2 after i finished. I even got my 28 year old boyfriend hooked on the series! I really, really didnt like that they killed my favorite character at the very end... don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I was SO bummed! Very well written and I am glad I hoppe don the bandwagon for this one.
    Also, the reader for this was fantastic! He had very distinct voices and accents for all the characters.It was great!

    "Good narration, mediocre story"

    I downloaded this because I had heard good things about the book. While it is less annoying that some of the other teen trilogies out there, it did seem very formulaic in its setup.

    I did however enjoy the narrator. :-)
