Book Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, # 1) by James Dashner
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: October 6, 2009
Publisher: Delacorte Press 
Pages: 374

Summary: "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

My Review: The Maze Runner had heart pounding action, with non-stop out of your seat anticipation! I've had this series sitting on my bookshelf for some time now, and decided what the heck, let me give it a try. The movie is coming out in September, so I figured I'd read the book first.

I was pleasantly happy with the outcome of the first installment. I'm a little skeptical when I see a novel full of male characters, my automatic thought was, okay this will be a guy kind of book. Boy, was I wrong! James Dashner schooled me into not judging a male lead off the bat.

Thomas, oh Thomas, I love this kid. His courageous ability to attack every obstacle blew my mind. In instances where I would probably freeze up and cry in the corner, he would put himself out there even if it meant it was life or death. I really enjoyed getting to know him from start to finish. In addition, all the other supporting characters were just as strong. I have a little thing for Min Ho. Yes, he is sarcastic and a bit of a jerk at times, but I also loved how he was a fighter. They balanced each other out very well.

James Dashner did a phenomenal job in creating this blocked world filled with tests and trials. I was so intrigued by the idea of "who is controlling this whole thing" concept. I was yearning to know more and more, that's why I finished this book in two days.

All in all, this was a great start to the Maze Runner series. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the installments, along with watching the book come to life in a few months. The trailer thus far seems to stick to the story's vibe. I can't wait!
My Rating:  (4.5)
