Review - The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Synopsis: "If you ain't scared, you ain't human."

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers--boys whose memories are also gone.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out--and no one's ever made it through alive.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Review: Fantastic Mystery World! Loved it and the array of characters especially Thomas.

Thomas wakes up in a box inside a world with tall heavy walls and an endless maze. He is dubbed the Greenie for being the newest arrival of an all boy world and as expected has many questions because he has no memory of a life before waking up in the box. All he can remember is his name.

This a remarkable dystopian type story of how a group of boys try to work together and "escape" the Maze but have not succeeded for two years. There are creatures that come out mostly at night and they have needle like pinchers and razors attached to them for arms and such and if you get caught in the maze behind the door at night nobody has ever lived thru it. A girl is found in the box one day and it seems to spin the whole group and world out of control as things heat up because she comes bearing a message that a change is a coming.

There was only one part towards the beginning that aggravated me to no end but once I got past that I couldn't put this book down until the end. The pace builds up mid ways and doesn't let you go!
