SHOULD Read Books! (193)
Writing was a bit clunky and there was more telling than showing. ( )
Decent enough YA novel but probably won't read the rest of the trilogy.
Starts a bit slow, but once it gets going you're in for one hell of a ride.
I got this book for a dollar from a library sale (one of my favourite places to buy books!) and I'm certainly glad I did.
I had already seen The Maze Runner movie but it didn't really impede or hinder my enjoyment of the book. If anything, I enjoyed the book more because it was more clear than the movie.
It's a bit of a reverse-Lord of the Flies in that rather than descend into feral chaos, the teenage boys have a complex society that allows them to survive with a sense of order and give them a way to escape the giant maze that holds them prisoner.
The writing for The Maze Runner was much more taut and well paced than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised. There are no pages you muddle through hoping to get to more exciting parts.
I really enjoyed this book. I was skeptical at first because I’ve seen the movies before BUT since it’s been a while it was like filling in all the pieces I had forgotten. It was a quick read and I’m excited to read the next books! It picked up in the perfect spots also. I don’t normally go for the dystopian type Novels (besides divergent) but I’ve always been interested in reading this one so I was glad I picked it up!
The story reads like a maze with erroneous turns, dead ends, and a plot that should work but falls short. However, an amazing story nonetheless.
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.
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.
