The Maze Runner Series

James Dashner

Science fiction lovers, watch out! Here comes a dramatic and gripping story about life and death. Teens or adults: it’s an amazing read no matter what your age!

At the beginning of The Maze Runner, the main character, Thomas, wakes up in the Glade, a large open area surrounded by the stone walls of a maze. There are other teens there, and while they have food, water, and shelter, they realize that none of them can remember his past or history. And with no visible way out of the maze, everyone struggles with the imminent possibility of death at the hands of monsters who inhabit it called Grievers. Hundreds of boys and one girl—Teresa, the bravest and the smartest of them, who arrived with a disturbing message—will all be put to the test.

The minute I picked up the book and read the first page, I was hooked. This futuristic book will entrance you with the maze runners’ world and their life. Disturbing circumstances, bewildering experiments, and things beyond your wildest dreams come alive. People in a desperate society, trapped in a world with infectious disease lurking around every corner, are used as pawns in a government’s game.

The Maze Runner trilogy is the series of a lifetime and the adventure of a century, so get ready! Social justice and living for what matters: that’s what it all comes down to. Life, death, and sacrifice. Will they make it out of the maze and find out what the creators of the maze are up to? I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
