Talk about adventure, intrigue, twists and turns! James Dashner has it all in The Maze Runner (Book 1)! They sold this book to me as a perfect companion to The Hunger Games and Divergent...let me start by saying, these books are not the same in my mind, but that is not to say anything negative about The Maze Runner. It is still an amazing book that brings to life a new world that has yet to be discovered. Think, Lord of the Flies meets the Hunger Games meets Ender's Game. I know, I know, that's a huge variance, not to mention huuuuuuge shoes to fill!
Maze Runner, follows Thomas, a young boy that finds himself awakening with no memories beyond his own name, in an elevator and opening up to a group of rugged boys that have been living in "the glade" for the past 2 years searching for a way out of the maze that surrounds their safe compound all while avoiding the scary Griever monsters who constantly chase the boys. Will they find a way out with the help of bright, Thomas? What of this new mysterious girl, Teresa, who arrives in a coma and looks familiar to Thomas? With twists and turns in this trilling book it's sure to keep you interested and on your toes.
