Review #17: The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner has been billed as the book every Hunger Games fan must read. As far as chilling set-ups go, this one is right up there—a mysterious glade where about 50 boys have been sent, each one wiped clean of his memories except his name. But outside the idyllic glade—where they have organized themselves into a community—is the Maze and at the end of the Maze is their only way out. The only problem is, it has been two years and no one’s found the exit yet.
Every day, the doors to the Maze open at dawn and designated Runners go out searching for a way out. Every single day. The only thing they know about the Maze is that it changes every day. And also that if you happen to get stuck in there after the doors close at sunset, you die. Till the new boy Thomas ends up out there. And everything changes.
