Thomas wakes up, dazed, confused, and surrounded by boys. He still is able to make out what is happening around him, but unable to remember anything from his past. Forced to start a new life in a place that the other boys call the glade, Thomas has a sudden and strong urge to become a runner, a job that requires running the maze daily, noting any changes, and trying to find their way out. But the very next day, Thomas’ life is changed forever, for the second time since he can remember, a girl enters the glade, throwing his and the other boys’ lives into chaos. Thomas is sheepish to admit that he feels a deep connection between himself and this strange new girl. Now Thomas must try to regain his lost memories, and more importantly to survive in this horrible new place.
The Maze Runner is like anything I could ask for in a book. Lots of sci-fi action, mystery, and the slightest hint of romance. In short, it's the perfect story. James Dashner, the author of The Maze Runner, was able to create a mood of suspense through out the entire book. It leaves you wonder what will happen next and unable to put it down. The characters, especially Thomas, are incredibly likeable, you want the gladers, the boys that Thomas met in the glade, to escape the maze and later get to the safe haven. Well, I've said all that needs to be said. Except for this bad pun... maze runner? more like a-maze-ing runner... Wait, not as in like a good runner, like maze runner the book is good and... Never mind you wouldn't get it
