The Maze Runner – James Dashner

The Maze Runner by James Dashner, the first book of the Maze Runner series of dystopian fiction genre. It’s not exactly relatable, due to being set in a world different to this, yet reading this book does not take long for it is in fact very gripping. The movie is not a direct replica of the book and as well as simple fact changes, the general story line is slightly different. The character choices are however spot on due to the descriptions provided in the book. I do feel like the ending was slightly dragged on and there was not much description offered of the Creators which would have been a nice addition to it all. Overall it was an easy and pleasing read which I recommend for anyone of teenage years and up.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.


Quotes from the text;
“his memory loss was baffling in its complexity” (44)
“…life had never that way in the first place.” (356)
