The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner by James Dashner is a thrilling dystopian science fiction novel. You awake as Thomas rising in an elevator with no memories aside from your name. You arrive in a vast courtyard surround by many boys, none adults, who are attempting to solve a maze that will hopefully grant their escape from the Glade. Can Thomas aid his fellow Gladers and solve the maze or will he be forever stuck in this prison.


  1. This book would be good for those interested in Sci-Fi books, and books with a male main character. However, if you've read The Hunger Games series, this book will not impress you. So, if you'd like to read a book like this, I'd say read the Hunger Games instead.

  2. Well, the trilogy does become more gripping with wilder circumstances than the first novel. The Hunger Games is a bit more of a shojo story with various love interests and a presence in the media, but I feel the Maze Runner Trilogy can safely oppose it.
