The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
Title and Author- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Publisher- Delacorte Press
Page Number 384
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reviewer- Stephanie
This was an okay book. I loved the story line but I felt that everything as very rushed at the end and the first few chapters were extremely slow. Also, a lot of this story seemed to be very confusing and/or unnecessary. I really didn't like the ending at all. I felt that Dashner should have ended the first book sooner leaving some suspense. Due to that ending the storyline felt very rushed at the end and made everything seemed uninteresting. It also seems that Dashner was rushing the ending instead of beginning the second book at the end of chapter 59. Overall it was a decent book but it did have its flaws in the beginning and the end and I would not suggest reading it unless you have plenty of time on your hands. I also believe that the author should've used a different point of view and see if third person and writing this story in first person would've made this story so much better.

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

  1. I read the whole series and feel pretty meh about it. There were things I really enjoyed but I can't way I was blown away. I found the series interesting as a whole but I know I'll definitely never reread. Sorry it wasn't for you!
