Maze Runner(#1)

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human. 

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade. 

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive. 

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying. Remember. Survive. Run.

What I liked about the book 
It was an amazing book full of surprises and suspense. I liked these series more than hunger games (which is saying something). I mean the setting, the characters and everything was just perfect. I couldn’t stop after reading the first 35 pages. The movie although is a lot different. I mean it was good but the book was superb. And I truly love dystopian fiction. It provides me a different world altogether to be a part of and I loved being in the glade.

What I disliked about the book 
Nada!
Favourite character 
I really liked Thomas. He was always curious about everything and risked his life numerous times for a bunch of people he didn’t even know(which was a little reckless but made the book even better).
Age recommendation 
13-15 years.

My rating 
9.5/10

One thought on “Maze Runner(#1)

  1. Dear Chasing Sunshine:

            I see you like sci-fi and humor, and thought you’d might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new sci-fi comedy 11,984.  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it’s getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don’t have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world’s leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority–to clean–is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other’s throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013. May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words? Thank you.
