Although this isn’t a new book, I really wanted to read this, as I loved The Maze Runner movie. I found the book even more enjoyable and action packed then the movie. Exciting and exhilarating this is a very good book that I absolutely loved. Thomas can’t remember anything about himself or his life and his finds himself in The Glade, along with a large group of all boys in the same boat. The Glade is now his new home, and the massive and terrifying maze surrounding it, stop the boys from getting out, and creepy robot monsters called Grievers to get in. And everyday when the huge walls of the maze slide open the runners, go to try and find the way out. But everything changes when a girl comes with a note saying she’s the last one ever. Now it’s a race of survival to get out of the maze, or die trying.

The plot is original and smart, and the characters interesting and different. Apart from Thomas my favourite characters are most definitely Newt and Chuck just because they’re funny, smart and cute. I think this is definitely one of my favourite books, and has something in it for everyone.

I really recommend it to all teenagers.
