It was a pretty good book. The author did a good job of not revealing too much and let the plot build itself. I liked the characters and they were nicely made. I really started to like it around the middle part, that is when things started to really happen. I loved the ending because you can tell in the next book that some serious stuff is about to go down and I can't wait to read on and find out what's going to happen next.

Overall I was very pleased and I can see why people like this book/series. ( )

A fascinating dystopic commentary on warfare and treatment of humans. Warning: it's incredibly violent. I have no idea how they're adapting this into a movie. ( )
  DrFuriosa | Dec 4, 2020 |
I read this book for the first time in 2015. Started it....put it down....watched the movie and then picked the book up again. Only time I have ever done this on purpose.

I like this story....the premise is a classic one, really. Maroon pre-teen and teenage boys in an unfamiliar place, give them a problem to solve and see what happens. But this time it's not just survival like in Lord of the Flies.....add in a huge maze and robotic killer machines, plus selective memory loss.

I should have loved this story. But I just don't. I think it's James Dashner's writing style. For whatever reason....it just annoys me. Does that mean the book is bad? Nope. Just means that his style of storytelling isn't my exact cup of tea. I am going to listen to the audio book versions of the remaining two books in the series though, and the prequel....so I can watch the movies. I have an OCD thing about that....I have to read the book first before I watch any adaptation, movie or television series based on it.

I enjoyed listening to the audio book version of this story more than I enjoyed reading the novel. So I have the audio for The Scorch Trials (book 2) checked out from my library's online digital site, primed and ready. I like the story enough to want to know what happens next, so that's a good sign. :) ( )

The Maze Runner
Author: James Dashner
Publisher: Delacorte Press
374 Pages
Genre: YA, dystopian fantasy

I have to admit that I had a hard time getting into this book at first. Very rarely will I say this -- seeing the movie before reading the book helped me get through this story.

As I read the beginning of this novel, I was picturing what I saw in the movie. Thomas arriving on an elevator to a glade surrounded by walls, not knowing where he was, or who he was. I had the plot playing in my mind like another movie while reading Dashner's words. I like to immerse myself in a book as I read it, but there was something about this one that made that escape difficult. I think part of it was the constant use of slang. I understand that the Glade boys had somewhat made up their own language, but it was a bit overused. Maybe it was just the overall writing style. I had trouble getting to know these characters and forming that reader/character connection. The characters were thinly developed stereotypes....the newcomer, the experienced leader, the mysterious female, the crazy one....it was like Lord of the Flies with a maze added.

But....I have to add that the story was a good enough adventure to keep me reading to the end, even if Dashner's writing style was a bit difficult for me to read.

The plot doesn't involve a lot of side twists. It's a lot of pure description and the author telling the reader what they are seeing, feeling, and simple plot devices to move the story along. But, this is a middle-grade or YA novel. I don't have a problem with the plot advancing in a way that a 5th grader could relate to or understand. The book was written for that age! Read this book for what it is .... a dystopian fantasy adventure written for 5th-8th graders, but enjoyable for adult readers as well. The plot moves the story along more so than the characters. The characters seem to be types rather than individuals that readers will get to know, or personally like. As a reader, I ended up rooting for the group as a whole, rather than any one character. Good vs evil. Or the group vs the unknown.

The basic premise, without spoilers, is this: A boy, Thomas, awakens in an elevator surrounded by other boys. None of them have any memories from before they arrived in the glade. The glade is surrounded by high walls. Every morning, a door opens into a large maze. And each night it shuts. Inside the maze are monsters that kill. Every day, the boys work. Every boy has a job. The fastest, smartest boys become Maze Runners. Runners investigate the maze, trying to find a way out or to discover something about why they are in the glade. But something is changing. Soon after Thomas appears in the elevator, a girl arrives. She shouldn't be there. New people only appear at certain times and it wasn't time. Plus, Thomas thinks he knows her. They can communicate telepatically with only each other. What does this mean? Will they solve the maze? Where did they come from? And why can't any of them remember?

It is the strength of the story premise that provides the magic for this series, not Dashner's writing. I am going to continue reading the series because the first book ends on a definite cliff hanger. I'm continuing on to the 2nd book because I want answers. This time, I'm reading the book before I watch the movie. I'm used to the slang now and will do my best to immerse into the story.

It isn't the characters that keep me reading.....it's the story. The characters are just plot points that get me closer to the final answer -- what is going on here?

Rating: 6/10
Some violence, not overly graphic

This book is about a group of kids who are sent into this maze to survive. They start there own little civilization and try everyday to find an exit out of the maze. One day Thomas got locked outside the walls and in the maze where he survives and finds the way out. This is an amazing series of books with lots of suspense. ( )

The story reads like a maze with erroneous turns, dead ends, and a plot that should work but falls short.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraLibrary Media Connection, Constance G. Pappas (Nov 1, 2009)
 
James Dashner has created a thrilling dystopian novel.
 
The Maze Runner has a great hook, and fans of dystopian literature, particularly older fans of Jeanne DuPrau's The City of Ember (Random, 2003), will likely enjoy this title and ask for the inevitable sequel.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraSchool Library Journal, Kristin Anderson (Oct 1, 2009)
 
With a fast-paced narrative steadily answering the myriad questions that arise and an ever-increasing air of tension, Dashner's suspenseful adventure will keep readers guessing until the very end.
