The Maze Runner

 

Thomas - His Name is the only thing he remembers when he wakes up in the lift. He knows nothing about his life, his family or why he is here. When the doors open, other boys who also only know their names welcome him in the Glade - an area surrounded by huge stone walls. These doors open to a maze in the morning. Then the Runners start to explore it to find an exit. The doors close again in the evening. And then one wouldn't want to be left outside in the maze ...

 

One day after Thomas' appearance the first girl ever joins the Gladers and she has a message to tell. It seems like the maze is unsolvable …

 

The author James Dashner wrote this book in a tremendously thrilling way. The Gladers work together to escape the Maze, and it’s interesting how they deal with their weird situation and react when the girl appears. The Maze Runner is the first part of a trilogy, and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel. (Antonia Surböck, 5a)
