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 book, even better as a series!"

    The narrator was amazing!

    The book was well written. I finished this book in 3 days and the entire series in about a week and a half. I just couldn't get enough!!!

    so many twists and turns in the story, nothing was ever what it seemed. The writer was good at giving the reader the clues needed to pick up on what was going to happen, without making it entirely predictable.

    NOTHING LIKE THE MOVIE!

    Story
    "Will never relate to "shucking" the same - ever!"

    I get setting this book up as a tween book - but the OVER use of the word "shuck" and its derivatives became grating like "nails on a chalkboard"

    The plot & characters were fairly well developed, but still can't get the term shucking out of my mind!!

    "Good story"

    I listened to this audio book after I saw the movie on pay-per-view. I think that was good because it gave me a picture of the complexity of the maze and where the gladers lived. Mark Deakens is an excellent narrator. Now I am ready for book two!

    "well done."

    I am not a good judge of literary work. the performance was done over all. I find the tone of voice at times too mellow.

    "Very compelling story"

    I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the second book in the series. The story of hope in a hopeless situation is by far the storyline I enjoy the most. As a huge fan of @The Walking Dead" I found out groups ability to figure out a strategy and then implement it to be very interesting.
