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.
Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.
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.
Everything is going to change.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
Remember. Survive. Run.

My take on this book: Wow. This book has been a mixture of emotions throughout the whole thing. Or at least that’s the way I felt while reading every single last bit of it. James Dashner had me hooked throughout the whole ordeal of the book and it was just wow. My mind is still..I guess..trying to process through the story since I finished it quite fast. This book is getting a five star rating from me. It was that good.

For me when I first heard about this book I was in high school and didn’t think that it would be something on my to-read list one day. But then again my taste in reading has changed since I was a sophomore in high school. That and this book was actually better than what I imagined it would be. All I have to say is if anyone asks me in the future or even right now if I would recommended this book to my friends and family I will totally say “Yes!” Because it’s really good and it makes you think about the characters, what is going on and if you could really stop what has happened to them.

I don’t really want to spoil anything in this book but this whole thing from the prologue to the end is really good and it just makes you want to jump in there and help the Gladers to get out while not getting killed by the disgusting creatures that live in the maze.

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
