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 wasnt good enough, but the last third really turned everything around. Lets discuss.

I bought this book over a year ago because of the Dystopia craze.. having read so much dystopia though, I wasnt able to pick it up. Its been a while though, and I picked it up at a time where I was excited for it which turned out for the best.

I was first stricken with how fascinating the whole world concept for this books is: its very reminiscent of The Lord of the Flies in that you have a bunch of kids desperate for life but not knowing what to do. Ive always enjoyed reading and thinking about how bodies of people govern themselves, and this made an interesting study. Also, of course!, you have this epic arena: a huge maze infested with giant lizard-robot creatures and no seeming escape, its great!

But here lies my problem with this book: you understand the world within the first few pages, you pretty much understand whats going on. Therefore, I expected @Okay, I get it! Cool.. whats going to be the plot in this interesting [email protected] .. and you dont find out for 300 pages. SERIOUSLY! Most of this book is the main character, Thomas, asking questions and NEVER getting answers. It was infuriating! I felt all this potential for the story, it honestly has such an exciting prospect, but then you learn nothing further about the world and the plot goes nowhere. A couple of people have told me that this was all necessary information needed for the sequels, and I completely disagree. Its always good to set an over arching idea with details for a series, but that shouldnt take up over 2/3rds of this book! I will not budge on my feelings that this book had a lot of wasted time merely standing around the Glade that should have been cut out to make the story an actual story: I want plot, something to follow!

However, and this is where I was so happily surprised, the last hundred or so pages of this book WERE exactly what I wanted (expected). They were completely action packed, very suspenseful, and absolutely thrilling to read. I at first wondered if it would be @too little, too [email protected] but my final verdict is no.. it was so very exciting that although it was close to not being good enough, it definitely brought the whole book up for me.

The writing in this book was overall enjoyable: one thing I HAVE to praise is the descriptions... they were never too lengthy or distracting and they always left a clear image in my mind. A lot of the time when action scenes are described in books Im really confused as to who is kicking who/where someone is running/what is attacking them but this writing really nailed good description. However, I do have to point to the lack of suspensefulness: I could feel that the James Dashner wanted things for the first 2/3rds of this book to feel suspenseful, but instead they felt slow, dragged out, and actually kind of annoying.

Overall, it was a tough read for most of the way through, but the ending portion really made up for it. I DEFINITELY want to read the next book, The Scorch Trials, and look forward to seeing where this story progresses.. Im scared that the slow world building wont be eradicated though because we are completely changing arenas, but we will see! I have my fingers crossed! At least I know to push through the slowness because Ill probably have an exciting ending waiting for me!

Note on the epilogue: IT WAS PERFECTION. I really appreciate when an author ties of a book well, especially when its part of a series: I dont want to be left completely hanging having no closure at the end of a book. This book did sum up really well though, it had a conclusion, this chapter ended. The epilogue gave the perfect twist though, absolutely unexpected and brilliant.

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 hadnt read the book yet ↓

@

I know right? I loved the book. I will say I watched the second movie and didnt like it but Im going to keep on with the books and see.

Welcome To The Maze!

@

Imagine, if you will, you wake up in some elevator thing and you have no idea what is going on or your past. You just end up in some place with a bunch of dudes that are calling you greenie until the next person comes up out of the ground. This is how Thomas came into this world. It would suck arse! But Thomas keeps getting vague thoughts and memories of people places and things. Not memories per se, more like feelings that he has been there before.

I loved so many of these boys and Teresa when she gets there. <--- part of that sentence didnt sound right, but I digress.

There seems to be one main jerk of the group and his name is Gally. He tries to cause a lot of trouble for Thomas and he does do something I will never forgive him for in the end. I will cut him down!

Anyway, so they have this little farming structure set up. Everyone has jobs like the crop keeper, or the cook, or the butcher, or runner and etc and so on.

At one point they bumped Thomas up as a runner because he saved some peeps and stuff. But you know I can tell you that I would be changing my mind after dealing with all of the crazy stuff in the maze. You have to run through and try to find new ways to get out and not get eaten. Here are two examples why I would not want to be a runner. ↓

But you have to do what you have to do I guess. And then some bad stuff happens and the whole group have to get out. Get out now!

Some more good and bad stuff happen and they end up finding the CREATORS, or JERKS in my opinion, and they are taken off to go on another mission of sorts.

Either way this book and movie was so amazing. Even if I dont like the rest of the series, I will always have THE MAZE RUNNER ♥

I dont say this often, but I actually liked the movie waaaay more. The plots are pretty similar!

If I hadnt seen the movie, I dont think I wouldve 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 way more.

This book was a really fast read, though! I was surprised at how quickly events were happening... like @oh wow were at that part of the story [email protected]

Basically, I went into this without a ton of expectations but still ended up being underwhelmed. The writing + plot are kind of simplistic and hinge on withholding all the answers, so maybe seeing the movie first ruined it for me.
