The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Thomas wakes up in complete darkness, in what only can be an old metal elevator ascending up. He has no memories of anything other than his name. When the elevator stops, and the metal ceiling doors open, Thomas finds himself in the Glade-and he is not alone. The Glade has boys of all ages living day to day, and just like Thomas, they don’t remember anything either. Every month, for the last two years, one boy arrives to the Glade with no explanation, and no memories to speak of.
What is more puzzling is, large stone doors open up every morning to the maze, and close every evening like clockwork. The boys of the Glade know one thing for certain; you do not want to be caught in the maze when the door closes at night, because the Grievers will get you.
Everything changes when the following day a girl arrives on the metal lift with a startling revaluation, and Thomas recognizes who she is.
The Maze Runner is a must read. This book is highly entertaining with enough suspense to keep you glued to the pages. A guaranteed start to finish great book that is a must have. Buy new, buy used, but just buy, you will not be disappointed.
