Insights are pretty common sense if you are up-to-date on trends. Really needs a better voice-over than the monotoned authors voice.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers - boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out - and no one's ever made it through alive. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.

Great book, written well with good flow. The chronological order of events was a little bit off and that could be hard to follow at times.
