An original book


You must read this!!!!!!!!! Intense!!!!!

Maze Runner

Having seen the movie before reading the book, it was rather hard to get into with all the little changes. The movie world seemed more vibrant while the book world felt flatter. But it didn’t disappoint. It was a page turner, and the epilogue confirmed my suspicions.


James Dashner really spun a great series here, this is awesome, 5 OUT OF 5!


I liked this book. It was interesting and fun to read.

A New Idea

The book's plot is very intriguing, with many questions that make you want to read the book until you can figure out something. Only for it to end with only 1/7394$3483939373 questions answered. JK, but I highly recommend it!

Interesting Idea

The idea is what intrigued me. Sending young boys with no memory of their past into the harsh world of the maze. I immediately felt curious and wanted to read the book. I thought it executed the idea very well and it is what I call an "adrenaline read" because of all the exiciting action.

Maze Runner

Good book. OK movie.


The book is a must read. When I was reading the book I couldn't put it down.


this book was so cool


This book had many parts where it was heart breaking and the whole book was very action packed. Can't wait to read the next two books in the series!

4 Stars

This is book was in the okay to great level. It definitely had an original plot and had a perfect mix of action and suspense but the novel was dry overall. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a lighter, action read.

Really good book

this book was very interesting and was a good way to start a trilogy


I love this book "The maze runner" which is so interesting!


This book was great!!! was completely different from any other book


good book... nice twist at the end


If it's by James Dashner, then you know it's good. A bit of violence, but it isn't Hunger Games level, which I find very appealing,


This seemed like an interesting book to read when I first picked it up, and I'm glad I did because it was a great book, kind of confusing at first but as I neared the end I anticipated what was going to happen after and after.

The Maze Runner

This book was very interesting. It is definitely action packed and I couldn't put the book down, I had to keep reading! It has a very interesting plot that most books do not have. I really enjoyed it, because it was very different from all of the other books that I had read. I recommend this book to people who like scary books.


This book is horrifying, amazing, wonderful, scary, violent and impossible to put down. Waiting for the third book in the trilogy is killer.
