So yesterday night I finished The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I absolutely loved it.
I heard a bunch of mixed reviews of this book, most being quite negative, however it was being turned into a movie so i thought if a bunch of other people like it, I might as well try it.
Due to work, school work and general life I was quite slow to jump on the bandwagon. However, once seeing Dylan O'brein on the trailer I had to read it.
I started of a bit bored in the book, I just wanted a bunch of action which wasn't quite in the beginning. I did love the whole concept however of the boys stuck in a maze they can't figure out. I liked the whole dystopian feel of the maze as you as a reader did not know a thing about it; you were as blind as the male protagonist, Thomas. The book follows Thomas's short life in the Maze. We get introduced to the rest of the Maze, which are all boys, slowly. I fell in love with Chuck, who is Thomas's only friend in the Maze as he seems so cute and like my own little brother.
The Maze is divided into sections and each section has a Keeper(the person who looks over the section.) Thomas quickly finds himself as a Runner after a heroic act that saves two of his friends from the Grievers (these horrible mechanic monsters) one being the Keeper of the Runner's, Minho. During this whole kerfuffle a girl gets introduced into the Maze as the last person. She, Teresa triggers the Ending, The boys and Teresa then go on an adventure through the Maze to find out what's really going on.
I really recommend this book and I definitely can't wait to watch the movie! I give praise to James Dashner for his amazing writing.
