The Maze Runner by James Dashner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
My wife had read this and wanted to see the movie, so I picked up our copy, before we put it in the "Half Price Books" pile and made my way through it quickly. Me meet Thomas, who's disoriented, has he's raised up in a cage that's essentially in a hole. Once he reaches the top he doesn't know where or who he is. He quickly learns he's in the "Glade" with several other young men. Thomas is a catalyst for change and once he arrived things start changing, and not for the best.
The book was ok, not my favorite, but I didn't hate it. It read fast, as most young adult fiction does. I probably won't read the remaining books in the series, but I'll probably see the movies, if they're made. I'd would have been ok not reading the book and seeing the movie, I probably would have enjoyed the movie more if I didn't pick out the differences between the two.
