    1. This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series, a series that has become one of my favorites I began The Maze Runner excitedly, hoping for an equally enjoyable, dystopian adventure I didn t find it.The plot was intriguing and kept me reading in fact, it was probably the only reason why I kept reading Some writers are able to seamlessly integrate characterization and good writing with a fast moving plot James Dashner is not one of them The pacing is strange, and Dashner s use of cl [...]

    2. This book would have been great IF 1 the characters had some personality2 the main character Thomas weren t such a Gary Stu and showed some character development and growth instead of conveniently remembering important information to advance the plot3 the book weren t filled with atrocious made up slang shuck face, really, is this supposed to be cool 4 the villains Grievers were actually scary or dangerous5 the maze had some kind of mystery about it and not limited to moving walls and un threate [...]

    3. You know how sometimes you re running really fast from a horrible creature and, in a moment of panic, you turn around to see how close it is only to run straight into a brick wall No I don t know what that s like either But that inattention to detail would probably totally screw you over because a now you re knocked unconscious and b the creature is going to devour you Good job.I guess this is kind of like Lot s wife looking back on Sodom only to be turned into a pillar of salt And it is also ki [...]

    4. Q if you could edit this book, what would you take out A the words Have you ever had an eight year old kid try to describe to you winning a level of a video game Have you ever had a middle aged man try to describe to you completing the games section of the New York Times Did those experiences involve multiple conversations like this What is the maze Stop asking so many questions I have to say that this book was boring than having someone tell you in painful detail about winning a video game or [...]

    5. You are the shuckiest shuck faced shuck in the world 2 1 2 stars It s funny how just a few years can change everything your reading tastes, your expectations, your standards because when I read The Maze Runner in early 2011, I enjoyed it a lot It seemed fast paced, exciting and a little scary Plus, I thought the slang was a nice touch Three years and a million dystopian sci fi books later and everything about me has outgrown this book It s not terrible I can still see why someone who is new to Y [...]

    6. Okay so before I start I want to say something.I personally hesitated to read this book because I heard too many bad reviews and things about this book.But let me tell you something.Yeah it has it s problems like the written style but this book has one of the best story plots I have ever read about.And believe,once you get into the book,you will not care about the writing or anything else.I am seriously so angry I haven t read this book early and even for listening or reading those really bad r [...]

    7. The last page is turned and all I have to say is this What for the love of all that s good and pure was this foolishness Aaaaand rant When I m sick the snotty phlegmy febrile kind of sick and my brain feels sizzlingly fried, I sometimes turn to easy reading fluff to give my neurons a break Sometimes this strategy backfires and the fluffy book actually tries to break my long suffering brain cells with its sheer stupidity.It s not even mediocre mediocrity would be elevating this book to the undese [...]

    8. Reading this book No sleep brain shock Oh like my brain was blown into freaking little bits I kept thinking about it after I was done I finished it into the late hours of the night and I kept circling in my head what was going to happen next The point is moot but I am definitely going to read the sequel The Scorch Trials.From the start as the reader we have NO idea what is happening All Thomas can remember is his name Not where he came from or any specific details of his life Neither do any of [...]

    9. EDIT 09 05 2013Holy crap, that looks perfect I am way better at writing reviews for books I hated, but I m gonna give it a go anyway Okay Breathe, Inge, breathe.Oh, this is gooooood.The Maze Runner was like a breath of fresh air to me I needed a nice, clean cut from the typical YA books filled with whiny protagonists, insta love and love triangles, and I got exactly what I asked for This book is like a giant puzzle that you solve along with the characters It is filled with unexpected twists and [...]

    11. I ve just finished and all I can say is holy shuck This book is awesome I was a little bit scared when I started this book that I wasn t going to like it as it is my first real dystopia sci fi book I ve read After about 110 pages it got to the point where I couldn t put it down for anything even while eating dinner I had it one hand and when bedtime came I wanted to stay up all night and read it.The plot was fast paced, suspenseful and full of suprises The twists and turns this book took shocked [...]

    12. At first I was a bit put out with this book I don t know what it is about male authors, but they can be down right infuriating Men truly do think on a different wave length and speak another language than women I was becoming rather frustrated with the lack of information being given, and I wasn t sure I would be able to endure that sort of aggravation for 300 plus pages Luckily around page 60 or so, Dashner hit his stride and I became enthralled with this story.It s so difficult to write a revi [...]

    13. A premise full of promise, but after 150 pages, how can there still be no answers Deliberately withholding information becomes frustrating not only for the protagonist, but for the reader as well The fact that Thomas does not demand answers from his fellow captives makes it difficult to sympathize with or care what happens to him The spoilers for the book make it sound intriguing, but I can t wade through another 200 pages before it gets to the point Aside from a few physical differences and ba [...]

    14. Thomas comes to the maze in a box, he has no memories of anything other than his name He learns that he is the GreenBean or the newest boy to arrive They get arrivals once a month.There s a ton of questions about how he got there and why there is a maze that has walls that move every night.Then there are the Grievers Which for the life of me I could not find scary A machine like slug Pour some salt on that fucker.The next day a girl arrives.It throws the boys into an uproar A GIRL and never befo [...]

    15. The Maze Runner is a masterfully plotted mystery It s intriguing It draws you in quick and then reveals details at just the right time to keep you turning the pages for .While many criticize the characters for being flat, which they are, Thomas and his fellow Maze Runners are at the very least likable They play pranks, they crack jokes, they bond in inventive ways, and most importantly they re just fun in general You can t help but like characters that are trapped in an almost literal Hell and s [...]

    17. It s 1am, just finished this and it was aMAZEing, see what I did there Review to come Review like gush Where do I even start this reviewOkay, so, The Maze Runner is absolutely incredible I loved it so much This book instantly sucked me in, when I really just got it off my shelf to look at it Haha, I had always been a bit hesitant to read this book, because I didn t think I d like it much Boy, was I wrong I even broke a book lover rule and saw the movie first, because I was never actually sure i [...]

    18. 3.5Well There was.well, first of all, I have to get a cup of water because I have a major headache Goes to get cup of water Returns Aah Much better Okay, first second of all, my friend recommended this book So I requested it, and foolish me left it lying on the table where I do my homework, in plain sight of my parents Oops So THEN my dad says, at dinner Oh, Ellie, by the way I borrowed that book of yours, Runner Or something gulps nervously The Maze Runner Yeah, that s it Oh Um Howwe you liking [...]

    19. I enjoyed the Maze Runner, but not as much as I wanted to It was a great concept, and the story was compelling, the characters and plot twists interesting, and there was no limit to Dashner s creativity My big problem was that the characters were manipulated by the story, and not the other way around There were so many times when the characters would have figured things out They re supposed to be brilliant kids, and yet they are continually clueless about things that are pretty obvious to the re [...]

    20. oblique spoilers ahead A is for Apocalypse A modern craze a timeless fantasy What shall bring us to this place Can there be life after such an event And if so what kind of life would that be B is for Banzai Banzai is a traditional Japanese exclamation meaning ten thousand years A Banzai charge is a last, desperate charge C is for Cube Cube is a 1997 film by Vincenzo Natali The characters in this film are trapped in a kind of maze, and must pass from one cube shaped room to another The characters [...]

    21. See the chapter x chapter breakdown on my blogAs if the simplistic and tell y writing in this book weren t bad enough, we also have to content with some truly atrocious pacing, inconsistent characterization, logic gaps out the wazoo, a Gary Stu of a main character, and an ending that kicks this book up into whole new levels of WTFery.The majority of this book is people jealously withholding information that gets revealed a few chapters later, which makes it painfully obvious that all the not tel [...]

    22. Preamble I apologize up front about the spoilers in this review They are hidden, but if you don t want to know some of the spoilers, don t click on them Fair warning Review I read this at the encouragement of one of my kids, who dearly loves this book So let me state right up front, buddy, I m glad you loved this book Now I m going to express my opinion Please remember that we re all allowed to have our opinions, even if mine is wrong Now, I didn t hate The Maze Runner by any means But I didn t [...]

    23. My experience with this book turned out to be a unique one for most of the book I was thinking that it had some redeeming ideas but that it just wasn t good enough, but the last third really turned everything around Let s discuss.I bought this book over a year ago because of the Dystopia craze having read so much dystopia though, I wasn t able to pick it up It s been a while though, and I picked it up at a time where I was excited for it which turned out for the best.I was first stricken with ho [...]

    24. Okay so I saw the movie when it came to dvd and I loved it, but here is the faces I got when I said I hadn t read the book yet I know right I loved the book I will say I watched the second movie and didn t like it but I m going to keep on with the books and see Welcome To The Maze Imagine, if you will, you wake up in some elevator thing and you have no idea what is going on or your past You just end up in some place with a bunch of dudes that are calling you greenie until the next person comes u [...]

    25. I don t say this often, but I actually liked the movie waaaay The plots are pretty similar If I hadn t seen the movie, I don t think I would ve had a strong sense of the characters or connected to very much in the book The premise is interesting, but the movie pulls you in way This book was a really fast read, though I was surprised at how quickly events were happening like oh wow we re at that part of the story already Basically, I went into this without a ton of expectations but still ended [...]

    26. THIS This is how you write a special snowflake without him turning into a Gary Stu Or make me want to claw my eyes out.Thomas, the MC, suddenly shows up in an isolated place society with no memory of his family or friends The only thing he can remember is his name Turns out he s inside a place called the Maze and most its male occupants have been here for two years, trying to find a way out while forging a living for themselves It s not easy though The walls of the Maze shift every night and dee [...]

    27. You know the moment you are reading a book and you are hooked You NEED to know what is going are desperate Your heart starts pounding, you can t breathe easily, you are gasping for air, anxiety takes hold of you, and you are on the edge of your seat Please tell me that I am not the only oneough that does sound mildly reminsicent of my asthma attack last year at kickboxing classbut I digress This crazy edge of my seat, NEED TO KNOW NOW experience was how I felt about this book I was enthra [...]

    28. I m still absolutely blown away THIS BOOK IS FREAKING BRILLIANT.Seriously, I ate it in a day Just ONE DAY Dystopians and me have a love hate relationship I love them, but I m tired of the monotony.This breaks dystopian cliches and just zooms into of a survival state.And it actually goes for character development.Thomas is the narrator andah, Thomas.His only issue, I think, is that he was too perfect He was brave to the millionth degree and kind of self sacrificing So while I loved him, I just w [...]
