The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner

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.


With my love of all things dystopian, I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get to this series. I have been told by numerous bookworm friends and even my students to read this book because it is so good. I guess I will just have to plead the never ending bookworm struggle of too many books and not enough time.

I am glad I listened, though. This is a fantastic book. It’s like Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and Divergent all mixed together. It is jam packed with action from beginning to end, with just enough mystery and twists and turns to keep the story compelling. I loved the characters and even teared up a bit at some parts. I’m excited to see where the story goes in the next two books. Definitely a must read.
