Teen Review: The Maze Runner

Maze RunnerTitle: The Maze Runner

Author: James Dashner

I just finished The Maze Runner, and all I can say is that it’s a must-read. If, when you were younger, you read The City of Ember it’s similar to that…except rather than being locked in an underground city you’re with a group of people stuck in a maze. Everyone is assigned to different jobs within their community and all they really want is to find a way out. To find a way out without getting stung and killed by the crazy slug-like hybrid beasts called the Grievers.

This book leaves you with so many questions; you really relate to the protagonist, Thomas, because neither of you have a clue what is going on, due to the  fact that all the kids who wind up in the Maze have no recollection of who they are and where they came from or what’s going on in the world.

If you’re looking for a suspenseful thriller this book is highly recommended.
