THIS. This is how you write a special snowflake without him turning into a Gary Stu. Or make me want to claw my eyes out.



Thomas, the MC, suddenly shows up in an isolated place/society with no memory of his family or friends. The only thing he can remember is his name. Turns out hes inside a place called the Maze and most its male occupants have been here for two years, trying to find a way out while forging a living for themselves.



Its not easy though. The walls of the Maze shift every night and deep within, lurk half-beast, half-machines called Grievers. The only people allowed out of their walled home to solve this Maze are Runners, the elite of the elite, mentally and physically.

Guess what Thomas wants to be?



Thomas is, arguably, a special snowflake following in the footsteps of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Darrow from Red Rising. But whereas Darrows specialness was thrust in my face with all the delicacy of a wrecking ball, Thomass was more covert, like Harry and Percy. Neither of them wanted the bouncing ball of destiny and greatness, it just landed in their laps like a hot potato. As Dumbledore would say,

“It is a curious thing, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”


Thomas is the same. Yes, he desires to be a Runner, but when it comes down to the heroic shit like that night in the Maze, he bumbles into it, relying on instinct and more luck than skill. This, to me, cancels out the Chosen One mark. I want to see my characters struggle in life-or-death situations, instead being all calm and collected because they have Spesual, Unparalleled Powers.



His personality isnt all sunshine and daisies either. I dont mean in a woe-is-me-Im-special, whiny, emo way, but more endearing and realistic.



He gets confused and frustrated. He lashes out at people and even thinks his only friend is annoying sometimes. Not condescendingly, but like when you have a bad day and your kid is just so freaking annoying! Its human nature.




The setting is fantastic. I love Lord of the Flies and the Glade mirrors that perfectly. A bunch of boys marooned in a place and forced to survive in their own. Though theyre far more organized and capable, even when THINGS happen later.

@Order,@ Newt continued. @Order. You say that bloody word over and over in your shuck head. Reason were all sane around here is cause we work out butts off and maintain [email protected]




The sole thing I didnt enjoy was the romance element. It stank of insta-love because Thomas thinks he knows the girl, Teresa, from somewhere in the depths of his memory, but cant get a grip on it. Sort of like soulmate in a previous life stuff.



I understand its part of the overarching plot and will be explained in later books, but it still got on my nerves even with it having a minimal screentime. If The Maze Runner were in Teresas POV, I suspect it will be more romance-based because the main connotation with her character is as Thomass object of affection and mystery. Not that I dont like her (she has her kick-ass moments), but it still doesnt sit well with me.



But its very tiny problem and I really enjoyed The Maze Runner. If you love dystopians with an endearing hero (who will be played by the fantastic Dylan OBrien in the movie adaption) and a Lord of the Flies twist, give this a try. As for me, Ill be jumping straight to the sequel.


Yes. Yes, you are.

You know the moment you are reading a book and you are hooked? You NEED to know what is going on....you are desperate. Your heart starts pounding, you cant breathe easily, you are gasping for air, anxiety takes hold of you, and you are on the edge of your seat? Please tell me that I am not the only one....although that does sound mildly reminsicent of my asthma attack last year at kickboxing class...but I digress. This crazy edge of my seat, NEED TO KNOW NOW experience was how I felt about this book. I was enthralled. I lost an entire day and night to this incredible book. James Dashners The Maze Runner was truly addicting and an unforgettable read.

Thomas cant remember where he came from, his parents, or his life before the Glade. He finds himself in this bizarre world surrounded by walls and a maze. There are other boys in his situation (think Lord of the Flies) and they have learned to make this place @[email protected] What is even more disturbing is the fact that there are crazy animal-monsters called Grievers that surround the Glades walls and come out at night with basically one mission: To destroy humans. Im going to be honest. The Grievers are the stuff of my own personal nightmares. Seriously. I have an irrational fear of needles and I also dont enjoy slugs. at. all. The description of these Grievers included both needles and slugs; needless to say, I vomited in my mouth a little just reading/imagining these volatile creatures.

Anyway, Thomas is learning the ropes and becomes friends Chuck and Minho, who both happen to be my favorite characters. Chuck is just simply endearing. Thomas really wants to be a runner and work with Minho, but he isnt sure why he is drawn to the job. There are various jobs and the way the Glade functioned I thought was pretty interesting. These boys even have their own slang/vernacular (klunk-love it!) as well as laws, which keeps the @[email protected] Everything seems hunky dory- or as normal as possible if you live in a maze- until one day this all changes. A girl, the first girl ever, arrives to the Glade delivering an ominous message. Without giving too much away, the tension increases and their world turns upside down, even more than it already is! Simply stated......Thomas must find a way to survive.

I cant remember the last time that I questioned a book so much as I did while reading this novel. I had SO many questions that I wanted answered, but brilliantly, Dashner was holding out on me, which only increased my suspense. Im going to get a little nerdy and teacher-eque, but bear with me. I also loved the fact that this book required me to use many comprehension strategies. I would LOVE to discuss this book with my literacy classes, because it really required me to infer, question, synthesize, predict, etc. It was truly a smart read and a puzzle that I was dying to put together. My poor husband, Mike, had to deal with my one million questions. Mike, surprisingly, read this book before me, which usually never happens. He saw the cover, read the synopsis and was hooked. So, it was pretty cool to be able to discuss and question him as I was reading, because Maze Runner is truly a book to be disected and discussed.

This story had me guessing the ENTIRE time, which I think is rare when it comes to young adult novels. Ususally you can figure out the plot at some point, but I was always shocked. Even right up to the end had me guessing. Im not kidding- even on the last page I was wondering a few things. It was a roller coaster ride that never once let me catch my breath. After my raving review, which I shared with my students, a boy immediately snagged my copy of this book. I think my students will love it!

Many people are comparing this book to Hunger Games and yes, both are dystopias, but both are extremely different. For starters, there really isnt a love triangle in Maze Runner and theres a barely there love interest, which I found to be refreshing. I needed a break from the drama-laden love triangles. Just like Hunger Games, this book focuses on survival of the fittest, but the Maze Runner has a whole different premise. I must admit, this book had me questioning way more than Hunger Games did. Dont get me wrong, I still love me some Katniss, but this book definitely gave Hunger Games a run for its money.

Im still absolutely blown away. THIS BOOK IS FREAKING BRILLIANT. Seriously, I ate it in a day. Just ONE DAY.

Dystopians and me have a love/hate relationship. I love them, but Im tired of the monotony. This breaks dystopian cliches and just zooms into more of a survival state. And it actually goes for character development.

Thomas is the narrator and...ah, Thomas. His only issue, I think, is that he was too perfect. He was brave to the millionth degree and kind of self-sacrificing. So while I loved him, I just wanted him to do something dumb...just to shake things up. Chuck was also awesome. He was 12, so more of a @[email protected] you might say, then a peer, but I loved his dogged loyalty. I had trouble figuring out the difference between Alby and Newt. They...merged. Gally was insane. But I felt sorry for him. And Minho was freakishly awesome, once he stopped being a jerk. Teresa? She couldve been developed a bit more. I felt like she was shoved to the back burner most of the time, because she was a girl and omg how do we treat girls??

Theres a lot of slang. And its original slang, which I usually hate. But this time? I LOVED IT. It felt original and cool and natural. Although @[email protected] was a bit too much like @[email protected] in my personal opinion. Actually the slang mostly felt English, too. And at first it was like @Woah, what are you [email protected] but I fell into rhythm with it almost as fast as Thomas.

Soooo...negatives? The way nobody would freakin explain ANYTHING! It drove me batty! Like all they said to Thomas was @shut up and youll figure it [email protected] No. STAHP. Just tell me all the things before I hit someone. And it wasnt a good frustration....it was a @theyre dragging this out to the umpth degree arent [email protected] It got tedious.

Its in 3rd person, but it still felt pretty personalized to Thomas POV. I loved that. I loved Thomas style and thought-pattern and basically... Thomas. But sometimes the writing got clunky. The description would be VERY intense. And I confess, I had trouble visualising the end.

Okay...so I confess...I read this because Im dying to watch the movie. Hey, but at least I read the book first, right?! The movie has an amazing and awesome and mildly adorable cast. BUT THATS NOT THE ONLY REASON I WANT TO SEE IT. I also love the story, of course, duh.

Basically, if youre looking for an epic dystopian with fantastic characters and unique plot: THIS IS IT. Read it. Fangirl with me. (Over the book not just the movie cast...gah, stop doubting me.) And BRING ME BOOK #2 STAT.

REASONS THIS BOOK IS TERRIBLE

1. Thomas is not only flat and a walking chosen one archetype, he’s also an absolute jerk. The protagonist is so flat that as I’m sure anyone can guess, every other character is even flatter. Chuck’s cute, Minho’s decent, and Newt is at least nice, but every single other character is angering.

2. Where was the dramatic tension? Seriously, where? This book bored me to tears. It’s all scare tactics and blustering. Look past that and this book is just rounds of infodumping about the danger these characters are in. The plotting around the maze is lackluster as well.

3. The only mystery occurs because no one will tell the main character anything. Stop this, authors of YA lit.

4. I can’t take any character that says the word “shuck-face” seriously. We know you’re saying fuck. I read this book in sixth grade and I STILL knew they were saying fuck. What’s the point of this? Either have them curse or don’t.

5. This book is seriously sexist around Teresa. Everyone keeps telling her to stand back, even though she’s supposedly the other smart one. And incredibly heteronormative. Are you really telling me not a single character was gay? Not a single one? There are 50 guys over here and all of them are obsessed with one singular girl. Just percentage-wise, at least five of them are not straight.

Not recommended to anyone. Just another hype train.

This was awfully slow for the first 150 or so pages, but I enjoyed it once it started to pick up. The writing was meh, I didnt particularly care about the characters and felt they were a bit dull and not very fleshed out, and the whole @withholding [email protected] plot device was just painful. It wasnt mind blowing or anything, but a fun read nonetheless.
