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.

    "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.

    "Males for females"

    Loved the book! It's always difficult for me when a male voices a female character, although it was a good attempt.

    "Great performance, gets better over time"

    This was the first audiobook I've heard and have to admit it has exceeded my expectations.

    I didn't quite like the readers voice for the first few chapters as I found it a bit expressionless, however, I really enjoyed his narration and tone after around chapter 5 and would definitely buy another audiobook read by the same person.

    As for the book itself, at times the vocabulary spoken by the characters irritated me, but the plot was good enough to keep me going, I'm filled with curiosity to keep on reading the other books in the maze runner series.

    "Like the concept, but couldn't take the dialogue"
    What would have made The Maze Runner better?

    While I found the premise of the book interesting, and the plotline feasible... the dialogue seemed off. I know the book is for teens, but it didn't seem to fit how teenage boys would talk to each other.

    "The entire book is just to set up the next"

    It was ok at best. I got a little angry as the book went on, seeing that the entire book is just a setup for the next. The series maybe good as a whole (maybe), but as a standalone book I didn't get much out of this one.

    "So much better than the movie"

    I put off listening to this book because, although the actor is cute, the movie wasn't that intriguing.
    BIG Mistake.. This is a great book. I know the books are usually better than the movie, but this one is significantly better.

    "Absolutely Excellent!"

    The Maze Runner was a perfect opening to a series. Mystery combined with precise, almost frustrating pacing easily kept the pages turning. Chucked full of creative dialogue and heavy but obscure clue dropping, it's a book I'd recommend to anyone. Continuing now with The Scorch Trials.
