The Maze Runner

6186357BOOK: The Maze Runner

AUTHOR: James Dashner

FORMAT / PUBLISHER: Paperback / Delacorte Press


“If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.”

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers–boys whose memories are also gone.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out–and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.


*I would like to thank Penguin Random House for sending me a paperback copy of this book.

This doesn’t affect nor influence my review.*

 First and foremost, it’s been a while since I last read a dystopian YA novel. Really. I fell in love with contemporary novels that I forgot to switch genre. In short, I LOVED this book.

To be honest with you, I’ve watched the movie before I even started reading this, but due to short term memory loss, I forgot some of the most important deets from the movie itself. I’m glad it happened. Huge thanks to my younger brothers for not spoiling me. I was savoring every page from this book. I really liked Thomas! (*he’s already added to my BBF (book boyfriend) list*) The way he acted when he found himself in the middle of this place and he and his friends were surrounded by an effing maze. How cool was that?! And then a girl arrived. The FIRST EVER girl. Mind f**king. He might have broken a few rules, but one thing’s for sure… he knew what he was doing and the only thing he wanted to happen was to get out of the maze. One of my fave characters has to be Chuck! Ahhh, he’s just so adorable. Wanna know why? Read the book now! 😉

The way this novel was written was fantastic. It was fast-paced and I finished reading this book in just a day (which barely happens in my life, but it did). I dived into this book without knowing anything except the fact that I know that there was a maze. *winks* When I finished reading the book, I asked my younger brothers what happened at the end of the movie and they told me. I was like, “thank the bookish gods I forgot that it existed on the movie!“.

Again, I absolutely loved this book. No more questions. I just gave you answers.


4.5 stars!
