REVIEW OF: Maze Runner By James Dashner

Reviewed by: Claire A

“If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.” I can think of millions of words to describe this amazing book titled The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Thrilling, exciting, adventurous, brave, awe-inspiring, and beautiful. Thomas is a sixteen year old boy who was brain-washed and dropped into an area full of boys know as the Glade. All Thomas wants is to escape from the cruel world. Thomas learns to adapt to this new way of life. Everything is going normally until a girl comes, carrying a mysterious note reading “This is the last one. Ever.” The problem with that is that now the walls that used to protect the Gladers are not closing, which means that terrible creatures can now enter and attack Gladers. The Gladers have never seen anything like it before and now are rushed to find an exit and get away from everything the maze has done to them.

Over all, I loved this book. It changed how I look at bravery, pain, and friendship. My overall favorite scene was when Teresa first talks to Thomas in his mind. I really liked how the author created Teresa into someone I can really relate to because of how well the author describes her and her opinions. Trust me, you will not regret reading this book.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Well, anyone and everyone over 11 years old. I say this because there is some mature content and very graphic scenes, such as deaths and creepy creatures trying to kill people. I hope that you will love this book as much as I did.
