The Maze Runner Review

"The Maze Runner"
by James Dasher (the book)
Reviwed by Theresa Chase

My Experience:

 My friend reccomended this book to me, when we were strolling through the library, and I picked it up, and checked it out!

Plot: (from this website)

The first book in the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series—The Maze Runner is a modern classic, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.

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 thirty 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."

This book has almost everything a reader will look for: actin, violence, mystery, romance, science. It doesn't include too much of one of these subjects either. I love the mystery factor, and it will keep you up 'till very late reading it. Once you read it, stopping isn't even an option! It's amazing! You would love this book if you like Matched, The Hunger Games, or Divergent. If you are looking for a suspenceful book, look no further.

Also, I would like to tell you about the challange I'm doing: 2013 books in 2013. They don't have to be huge chapter books either, little books count too. So even though right now, it seems hard, don't worry about me. I got this all under control. If you haven't, I would really consider making a reading goal for yourself. On this website, you can track your goal, and see how close you are to completing it. Read on my friends!
