Review: The Maze Runner

the maze runner book reviewed by a kidTitle: The Maze Runner

Author: James Dashner

Publisher: Random House

About the book: I thought I would review this book because ‘The Fever Code’, a second prequel to the original series, has just been released. 

When Thomas wakes up in a strange maze, the only thing he can remember is his first name. He’s welcomed by other boys into The Glade, a camp in the middle of the terrible maze. Like Thomas, the others do not know where they are, why they are there or how they got there.

What I thought: This was a tense, gripping book, which had me wanting to read more and more, as more questions were answered – opening up new questions. I really loved how this book kept me interested and the quality was the same the whole way through (the pace is kept up from start to finish).

I recommend this book for ages 12+ as it contains confronting scenes and some grown-up themes, and may be thought to be a bit scary in places.
