The MAZE RUNNER review

Finally got around to reading THE MAZE RUNNER by James Dashner and enjoyed it more than I expected. The bulk of the action takes place in an enclosed space called the Glade, which is surrounded by the Maze. Our hero, Thomas, wakes up in the lift and is deposited in the Glade. Filled with boys, Thomas must learn how to survive and yearns to explore the Maze. Things get really interesting when the first girl arrives in the Glade, as she seems to be the key to escaping the Maze so they can all go home. The ending leaves you wishing for a sequel. 3 Elves - Recommended
