Product description

When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.

The mazerunner is definitely the best book of the trilogy. Good books with a fast plot.

When i first heard of this book i had no idea that i would like it so much. In the beginning, i found this book a little slow, but as the world began to come together, i couldn't put it down! It is about a boy named Thomas, who comes up The Box to a place called The Glade. He has no memories other then his name, and soon finds out that he is trapped in the middle of The Maze. As the story goes on, the characters try to figure out a way out, who sent them here and who they really are.

This take on the dystopian genre is gripping and suspenseful! I loved the amount of detail that the author used, as it gives a great image in mind of the scene. The characters in the book i either loved or hated, and it gave me a great connection with the story.

It is one of my favourites without a doubt!

This is one of the biggest YA series out and I�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve heard a lot of good reviews about this book, so after watching the movie trailer, I knew it just had to pick it up! It was no where near the best dystopian I�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve read but it wasn�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t bad either so I give this book a 3/5 stars!

At the beginning of the book there was a lot of information to take in about the maze and I found it a bit hard to keep with it all! The pacing of the plot was fast and there was action every few pages and that made it an easy read. The writing was a little to simplistic and I feel it would have been a greater book if the writing had been better! As for the actual plot, the concept was very interesting and I think the maze was explained pretty well but the outside world is still a mystery but I think that will be developed more in the next book. There was twists I saw coming and there were actually a couple I never saw coming so that was good! And the ending was definitely a great set-up to the next book.

As for the characters, they were not developed as much as I would have liked but I�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??m hoping that changes in the next two books! For example, the girl, I didn�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t particularly like her because I felt we didn�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t even know her and there was a bit of insta-love with her and Thomas, to be honest their relationship felt forced to me! Thomas I did like, I thought he was a great main protagonist, he was smart, loyal, brave, honest and I enjoyed reading about him! As for the other side characters, I loved Chuck, Minho and Newt! The other characters didn�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t hold my interest.

Overall, I had some issues with this book but it was an okay read. It was good enough I�???????????�??????????�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ll be continuing on with the series!

well i've read the entire collection and I can safely say that this first book was the best one of the three. it's a very good read and I recommend it to anyone who's a fan of strong emotions.
despite its slow start it's a very good read all throughout
