In the last year or so, I’ve discovered that I truly enjoy the Young Adult genre despite the fact that I’m in my 50’s. I just recently read THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY. So, I was looking for another YA book to read that would be as fascinating. I found it in THE MAZE RUNNER.
Main character, Thomas, wakes up in a moving box-like contraption that opens up into a beautiful glade peopled by a group of boys all around his own age. He realizes, as they begin to introduce themselves, that he has no idea what his own name is, he doesn’t know where he came from or how he got in the box to begin with; the other boys tell him that is was the same for each of them.
As Thomas begins his life in the glade, he is introduced to the maze, its monsters and the dangers that surround him and the other boys.
THE MAZE RUNNER is a little slower-paced than I would like, but…it’s filled with intrigue, danger and mystery. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
