Reviews for The Maze Runner
One of the best dystopian books I have read
This book has sci-fi, dystopian, and post-apocalyptic elements in it, I mean what more could you ask for?
This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. There is so much suspense and questions that constantly arise that keep you engrossed in the book and it was so hard for me to put this book down while reading.
Although the writing style of the book annoyed me a little bit, I really enjoyed this book a lot more than other dystopian books. I really liked how in The Glade they had their own words for different things and it was really fun learning their language. The challenges that the man character has to go through and the world that he is currently in really makes you feel for and root for him. The character development and relationships between the characters was done really well and I even found myself crying near the end of the book. I am really excited for and cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes dystopian books and is looking for a different and unique one for all the ones that are currently out. by Jessica Gibbinsunder review
Maze Runner Rave
I ordered this trilogy of books all at once and I recommend that if you get sucked into stories quickly, you do the same too. The Maze Runner was a bit of a slow starter, but if you get into it, it's hard to put down. His other two books in the trilogy were AMAZING too!! Very clever and inventive, like nothing I've read before. by Audrey

Thomas is brought up to the Glade in an elevator with only his name and no memory at all. He finds himself with a group of boys like himself. They all have no memory of an outside world. All they know is that there is a maze and they will try to find a way out -but every night the doors to the maze will shut.
The day after Thomas arrives, a girl, the first ever in the Glade, arrives with a note that she is the last. Thomas is determined to figure out what is happening in the Glade and unlock the secrets that are buried.
THE MAZE RUNNER is the start to a thrilling new trilogy. If you are a fan of dystopian science fiction, then this title needs to be added to your must-read pile.
Author James Dashner has a brilliant start to the book; the Gladers use different slang, which takes some time to get used to. However, this leaves the reader feeling just as jarred as Thomas when the book starts and you find yourself learning about the Glade right along with the main character. I've never really had that experience with a book before, so kudos to Mr. Dashner for a brilliant storytelling device.
The story has somewhat of a slow start, but readers who stick with it will be rewarded. I'm warning you - there are lots of cliffhangers and heart-stopping adventure, and you'll want to stay up late turning pages to find out what happens next. by TeensReadToounder review
