Book one in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
   When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
   Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
   Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.

The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure all are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster.
Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

    The first 100 pages I felt like I was dragging myself through because the author was basically asking the same questions as the reader had for a majority of it. That said, it picked up and I became engrossed with the series.

  • nab6215

    Fast paced and east to read. Not afraid to kill off characters. Not afraid to keep the characters and the reader in the dark. The story had some similarities to some other teen fiction stories, but had different spin to keep it interesting. I am eager to read the sequel.

    Ok, if you want a distopian YA book, then this is the one. It's set in a futuristic wasteland, but this book is in a maze. THIS BOOKS IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.
