Maze Runner

The Maze Runner - James Dashner

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.


Screw you brain! Why you gotta make me not like stuff? This book, this series, this everything, I REALLY wanted to like. It’s even got a movie coming out soon, but noooo, you don’t want to like it. Ugh.


I think it has to do a lot with the lack of character development; I don’t know. I really wanted to care about the characters; even this spoiler didn’t make me care. The only girl in the book slept for most of it, then she was really mean to Newt, who was scared and the only character I did like besides Minho. It kinda felt like when you meet a new person and they are a dick to your best friend.


Like what the hell, bro? Back off.


The best friend of the main character was not around much. He’d show up so we wouldn’t forget about him, then be gone for the rest of the day. And, again, when this spoiler happened, I felt nothing because I really didn’t get to know him. I don’t think Thomas even cared for him till that happened.


I don’t know, I plan for more positive stuff though. I hate not liking a book; worst feeling in the world. Books are too awesome to hate.
