Let's Talk About Books: The Maze Runner

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

I'm linking up with Deanna to talk with you guys about a book I just completed!!



I am a huge fan of action and mystery books, and I've come to love

the teen series, such as The Hunger Games and the Divergent series.


As I was settling down in the theater to watch Divergent,

one of the trailers was for The Maze Runner. 



So, it looked like it was in that same genre, so I thought, hmmm....

maybe I've found another great series to start 

(even though I've not finished the Divergent set, but shhhhhhhhh.....).

I couldn't believe that I'd never heard of this series before!!


Of course I had to get the book on my Nook,


and see what all of the fuss was about!!


The book starts off with Thomas, when he is all of a sudden brought up in 

a lift, to a place called the Glade,  with no memory at all. 

The only thing that he is sure of is that his name is Thomas. 

He is surrounded with about 40-50 boys, who call themselves Gladers. 

No one has any memory of who they were, or where they come from.

The only thing that they remember is coming up in the lift. 



The Glade is surrounded by a maze, and there are giant doors that close at dusk,

protecting the boys from the scary creatures that inhabit the maze by night. 

Thomas learns that the boys have been there for about two years,

and everything stays the same. 

Supplies come weekly in the lift, and they get a new boy once a month.



The Gladers work different jobs by day, including the Runners. 

Their job is to run through the maze everyday, looking for a way out.

This is hard because during the night, the walls move into different positions. 

And then, the very next day after Thomas arrives, the Gladers have a new arrival.....

.......a girl......who tells them that she is the last one ever......
