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.
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.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
Bookworm Review: For years I've seen my students coming in and out of the library with this series and I didn't have the urge to go in and get it myself...until I heard it was going to be a movie. I'm the kind of reader who can't see a movie that's based on a book until I've read the book. Twilight...Hunger Games...Divergent...
I'm glad I picked it up at my local Barnes and Noble because I really enjoyed it. There were times where I'd go days without reading a single page, but then I'd really get into it and read fifty pages at a time.
Overall, I really liked the book. I enjoyed seeing everything through the eyes of the MC Thomas and I thought that the descriptions of the other characters made it easy for me to care about whether they lived or not. I really liked the character Chuck.
The Glades ended up being a really cool setting and sometimes I really felt like I was there among them. Dashner did a really good job at world building.
In the end, I was just as confused at the ending as I was at the beginning. I guess that means I have to go and get book two!!
