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.

    "Good fun read. Like most, far better than movie."

    Good story thst keeps you guessing. The creatures are much more imaginatively described than displayed in the movie. The character development far better in the book. So even if you've seen the movie....the book is worth a shot.

    "Ropes you in from the opening sentence!!"

    I'm astounded at how drastically different (and better) the Maze Runner book is compared to the movie!!! Wow I'd had NO IDEA how much they changed up the storyline in the movie until I started listening to this book!! I was totally immersed in the story and, at times, could not do my job, drive my car, or perform any other simple task.....pretty much useless lol!!! Thank you for the escape!!

    "Better than the movie"

    Like many other stories the book was better than the movie. I was very surprised with how much was changed or left out of the movie.

    "Not so great as a movie, great as a book"

    When I started listening to the maze runner, I'd already seen the movie, which I did enjoy but didn't love. ( let's put it this way; I watch Maze Runner the movie, get bored half way through and then I don't bother too watch the sequel) But upon listening to the audiobook, I found that, like with most stories, the book is WAY better than the movie. The story has so many small but important details that when they tried to compress it into a movie it just didn't make sense. It started out with just me listening to it, but as the story progressed, my brother and my mother got hooked into the story. We hardly spent a moment in the last 48hrs without listening to the maze runner! All in all, I think it is a great book, I loved it and would definitely recommend it to my friends. ( I listen to the Maze runner the book, can't stop listening, cry at the end and then wait in agony for 20 minutes waiting for the sequel to download.) My one and only complaint is the lack of romance, but then again, if I was forced to undergo such horrible trials, romance would be the last thing on my mind!

    "readable for a fan of hunger games and divergence."

    not sure yet if I'm a really big fan or it was just something the listen too. The reader was good but the book it's self had me questioning through the whole book 1 in confusion. By the end of book 1 I now realize the reader was to feel as lost as the boys in the maze.

    "Maze Runner - Book 1"

    Story: Not sure if I like the book or movie better. Each has it strengths. The book was more frightening and alive with detail. The movie, through special effects, capture some of that feeling and texture and did it quicker. I recommend both. In addition, the book is for young adults so it spares us the standard trash though there is the usual juvenile tempter tantrums some call drama.

    Reader: Very good.

    Production: Very good.

    "Pretty good"

    It's a pretty good listen. It's easy to follow and keeps you engaged. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book.
