    This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series, a series that has become one of my favorites. I began The Maze Runner excitedly, hoping for an equally enjoyable, dystopian adventure. I didn't find it. The plot was intriguing and kept me reading; in fact, it was probab...

    This book would have been great IF: 1) the characters had some personality 2) the main character - Thomas - weren't such a Gary Stu and showed some character development and growth instead of conveniently "remembering" important information to advance the plot 3) the book were...

    You know how sometimes you're running really fast from a horrible creature and, in a moment of panic, you turn around to see how close it is only to run straight into a brick wall? No? I don't know what that's like either. But that inattention to detail would probably totally...

    Q: if you could edit this book, what would you take out? A: the words. . . . Have you ever had an eight-year-old kid try to describe to you winning a level of a video game? Have you ever had a middle-aged man try to describe to you completing the games section of the New York T...

    Okay so before I start I want to say something.I personally hesitated to read this book because I heard too many bad reviews and things about this book.But let me tell you something.Yeah it has it's problems like the written style but this book has one of the best story plots I ha...

    The last page is turned and all I have to say is this: What for the love of all that's good and pure was this foolishness? ...Aaaaand ..... rant! ----- When I'm sick - the snotty phlegmy febrile kind of sick - and my brain feels sizzlingly fried, I sometimes turn to easy reading...

    Reading this book + No sleep= brain shock . Oh more like my brain was blown into freaking little bits. I kept thinking about it after I was done. I finished it into the late hours of the night and I kept circling in my head what was going to happen next. The point is moot but I am def...

    EDIT 09/05/2013 Holy crap, that looks perfect. -- I am way better at writing reviews for books I hated, but I?m gonna give it a go anyway. -- Okay. Breathe, Inge, breathe. Oh, this is gooooood. The Maze Runner was like a breath of fresh air to me. I nee...

    As in Harry Potter Grades system, Exceed Expectations Didn't expect I'd Like it that much. Easy fun thrilling read..Hard, Mysterious Dangerous Maze though.. ??????? ???? ???? ???????..???? ????? ???? ??? "???? ???? ????? ?????...

    I've just finished and all I can say is holy shuck! This book is awesome! I was a little bit scared when I started this book that I wasn't going to like it as it is my first real dystopia/sci-fi book I've read. After about 110 pages it got to the point where I couldn't put it down ...

    At first I was a bit put out with this book. I don?t know what it is about male authors, but they can be down right infuriating. Men truly do think on a different wave length and speak another language than women. I was becoming rather frustrated with the lack of information being gi...

    A premise full of promise, but after 150 pages, how can there still be no answers? Deliberately withholding information becomes frustrating not only for the protagonist, but for the reader as well. The fact that Thomas does not demand more answers from his fellow captives makes it diff...

    Thomas comes to the maze in a box, he has no memories of anything other than his name. He learns that he is the "GreenBean" or the newest boy to arrive. They get arrivals once a month. There's a ton of questions about how he got there and why there is a maze that has walls that ...

    To Summarize: Wellllll...that was convenient... Thomas wakes up in the middle of a glen in the center a enormous maze. He (along with all of the other guys in there) have no memory of life outside of the maze. Absolutely blank slates the lot of them...wellll....mostly. Their e...

    Preamble: I apologize up front about the spoilers in this review. They are hidden, but if you don't want to know some of the spoilers, don't click on them! Fair warning! Review: I read this at the encouragement of one of my kids, who dearly loves this book. So let me state right up ...

    My experience with this book turned out to be a unique one: for most of the book I was thinking that it had some redeeming ideas but that it just wasn't good enough, but the last third really turned everything around. Let's discuss. I bought this book over a year ago because of the ...

    Okay so I saw the movie when it came to dvd and I loved it, but here is the faces I got when I said I hadn't read the book yet ? I know right? I loved the book. I will say I watched the second movie and didn't like it but I'm going to keep on with the books and see. Welcom...

    WHAT DID JUST--- OMG. ...

    I don't say this often, but I actually liked the movie waaaay more. The plots are pretty similar! If I hadn't seen the movie, I don't think I would've had a strong sense of the characters or connected to very much in the book. The premise is interesting, but the movie pulls you in w...

    I DNF this like 5 pages in. No joke fams ...

    THIS. This is how you write a special snowflake without him turning into a Gary Stu. Or make me want to claw my eyes out. Thomas, the MC, suddenly shows up in an isolated place/society with no memory of his family or friends. The only thing he can remember is his name. Turns out...

    You know the moment you are reading a book and you are hooked? You NEED to know what is going on....you are desperate. Your heart starts pounding, you can't breathe easily, you are gasping for air, anxiety takes hold of you, and you are on the edge of your seat? Please tell me that I a...

    This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series, a series that has become one of my favorites. I began The Maze Runner excitedly, hoping for an equally enjoyable, dystopian adventure. I didn't find it. The plot was intriguing and kept me reading; in fact, it was probab...

    This book would have been great IF: 1) the characters had some personality 2) the main character - Thomas - weren't such a Gary Stu and showed some character development and growth instead of conveniently "remembering" important information to advance the plot 3) the book were...

    You know how sometimes you're running really fast from a horrible creature and, in a moment of panic, you turn around to see how close it is only to run straight into a brick wall? No? I don't know what that's like either. But that inattention to detail would probably totally...

    Q: if you could edit this book, what would you take out? A: the words. . . . Have you ever had an eight-year-old kid try to describe to you winning a level of a video game? Have you ever had a middle-aged man try to describe to you completing the games section of the New York T...

    ?You are the shuckiest shuck faced shuck in the world!? 2 1/2 stars. It's funny how just a few years can change everything - your reading tastes, your expectations, your standards... because when I read The Maze Runner in early 2011, I enjoyed it a lot. It seemed fast-pace...

    Okay so before I start I want to say something.I personally hesitated to read this book because I heard too many bad reviews and things about this book.But let me tell you something.Yeah it has it's problems like the written style but this book has one of the best story plots I ha...

    The last page is turned and all I have to say is this: What for the love of all that's good and pure was this foolishness? ...Aaaaand ..... rant! ----- When I'm sick - the snotty phlegmy febrile kind of sick - and my brain feels sizzlingly fried, I sometimes turn to easy reading...

    Reading this book + No sleep= brain shock . Oh more like my brain was blown into freaking little bits. I kept thinking about it after I was done. I finished it into the late hours of the night and I kept circling in my head what was going to happen next. The point is moot but I am def...

    As in Harry Potter Grades system, Exceed Expectations Didn't expect I'd Like it that much. Easy fun thrilling read..Hard, Mysterious Dangerous Maze though.. ??????? ???? ???? ???????..???? ????? ???? ??? "???? ???? ????? ?????...

    I've just finished and all I can say is holy shuck! This book is awesome! I was a little bit scared when I started this book that I wasn't going to like it as it is my first real dystopia/sci-fi book I've read. After about 110 pages it got to the point where I couldn't put it down ...

    At first I was a bit put out with this book. I don?t know what it is about male authors, but they can be down right infuriating. Men truly do think on a different wave length and speak another language than women. I was becoming rather frustrated with the lack of information being gi...

    A premise full of promise, but after 150 pages, how can there still be no answers? Deliberately withholding information becomes frustrating not only for the protagonist, but for the reader as well. The fact that Thomas does not demand more answers from his fellow captives makes it diff...

    This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series, a series that has become one of my favorites. I began The Maze Runner excitedly, hoping for an equally enjoyable, dystopian adventure. I didn't find it. The plot was intriguing and kept me reading; in fact, it was probab...

    My experience with this book turned out to be a unique one: for most of the book I was thinking that it had some redeeming ideas but that it just wasn't good enough, but the last third really turned everything around. Let's discuss. I bought this book over a year ago because of the ...

    Preamble: I apologize up front about the spoilers in this review. They are hidden, but if you don't want to know some of the spoilers, don't click on them! Fair warning! Review: I read this at the encouragement of one of my kids, who dearly loves this book. So let me state right up ...

    My experience with this book turned out to be a unique one: for most of the book I was thinking that it had some redeeming ideas but that it just wasn't good enough, but the last third really turned everything around. Let's discuss. I bought this book over a year ago because of the ...

    Okay so I saw the movie when it came to dvd and I loved it, but here is the faces I got when I said I hadn't read the book yet ? I know right? I loved the book. I will say I watched the second movie and didn't like it but I'm going to keep on with the books and see. Welcom...

    WHAT DID JUST--- OMG. ...

    I don't say this often, but I actually liked the movie waaaay more. The plots are pretty similar! If I hadn't seen the movie, I don't think I would've had a strong sense of the characters or connected to very much in the book. The premise is interesting, but the movie pulls you in w...

    This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series, a series that has become one of my favorites. I began The Maze Runner excitedly, hoping for an equally enjoyable, dystopian adventure. I didn't find it. The plot was intriguing and kept me reading; in fact, it was probab...

    This book would have been great IF: 1) the characters had some personality 2) the main character - Thomas - weren't such a Gary Stu and showed some character development and growth instead of conveniently "remembering" important information to advance the plot 3) the book were...

    You know how sometimes you're running really fast from a horrible creature and, in a moment of panic, you turn around to see how close it is only to run straight into a brick wall? No? I don't know what that's like either. But that inattention to detail would probably totally...

    Q: if you could edit this book, what would you take out? A: the words. . . . Have you ever had an eight-year-old kid try to describe to you winning a level of a video game? Have you ever had a middle-aged man try to describe to you completing the games section of the New York T...

    ?You are the shuckiest shuck faced shuck in the world!? 2 1/2 stars. It's funny how just a few years can change everything - your reading tastes, your expectations, your standards... because when I read The Maze Runner in early 2011, I enjoyed it a lot. It seemed fast-pace...

    Okay so before I start I want to say something.I personally hesitated to read this book because I heard too many bad reviews and things about this book.But let me tell you something.Yeah it has it's problems like the written style but this book has one of the best story plots I ha...

    The last page is turned and all I have to say is this: What for the love of all that's good and pure was this foolishness? ...Aaaaand ..... rant! ----- When I'm sick - the snotty phlegmy febrile kind of sick - and my brain feels sizzlingly fried, I sometimes turn to easy reading...

    Reading this book + No sleep= brain shock . Oh more like my brain was blown into freaking little bits. I kept thinking about it after I was done. I finished it into the late hours of the night and I kept circling in my head what was going to happen next. The point is moot but I am def...

    EDIT 09/05/2013 Holy crap, that looks perfect. -- I am way better at writing reviews for books I hated, but I?m gonna give it a go anyway. -- Okay. Breathe, Inge, breathe. Oh, this is gooooood. The Maze Runner was like a breath of fresh air to me. I nee...

    As in Harry Potter Grades system, Exceed Expectations Didn't expect I'd Like it that much. Easy fun thrilling read..Hard, Mysterious Dangerous Maze though.. ??????? ???? ???? ???????..???? ????? ???? ??? "???? ???? ????? ?????...

    I've just finished and all I can say is holy shuck! This book is awesome! I was a little bit scared when I started this book that I wasn't going to like it as it is my first real dystopia/sci-fi book I've read. After about 110 pages it got to the point where I couldn't put it down ...

    At first I was a bit put out with this book. I don?t know what it is about male authors, but they can be down right infuriating. Men truly do think on a different wave length and speak another language than women. I was becoming rather frustrated with the lack of information being gi...

    A premise full of promise, but after 150 pages, how can there still be no answers? Deliberately withholding information becomes frustrating not only for the protagonist, but for the reader as well. The fact that Thomas does not demand more answers from his fellow captives makes it diff...

    Thomas comes to the maze in a box, he has no memories of anything other than his name. He learns that he is the "GreenBean" or the newest boy to arrive. They get arrivals once a month. There's a ton of questions about how he got there and why there is a maze that has walls that ...

    To Summarize: Wellllll...that was convenient... Thomas wakes up in the middle of a glen in the center a enormous maze. He (along with all of the other guys in there) have no memory of life outside of the maze. Absolutely blank slates the lot of them...wellll....mostly. Their e...
