Review: The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner by James Dashner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I must say that this is the best adapted-into-movie fiction I’ve ever read. You love science fiction? Post-apocalyptic fiction? Dystopian literature? This book is a marvelous package of thrill, suspense, excitement, surprise, anticipation and anxiety that will worth your time.

“Everything is going to change.”

Thomas awakes with no memory beside his own name in an elevator taking him to his new life: a place called Glade whose inhabitants are boys who have no memory and have been put there with a similar manner like him. He gradually learns that the Glade is an artificial haven located in the center of a mysterious maze whose walls keep moving and changing every night, trapping them in, or actually, trapping any dreadful things out. The maze is the only way out, but nobody ever find the exit and survive inside…

Who puts them there? Why? For what purpose? Will everything change? For better? Or worse?

I must say that the author is truly brilliant to have such an idea of story. What an imagination! To create something like the maze, the glade, the griever, everything! I can’t stop admiring it every time I turn the page. This is the book that has the power to keep me reading it until the last page without stop. James Dashner has an amazing way to narrate the story that you keep questioning and questioning more: what’s next? how come? what’s that? without getting you bored or impatient by too-long paragraph or explanation that makes you want to skip many and get to the interesting part. No. Every sentence seems like demand your attention. It bears more surprise the deeper you get into the story.
