This first book in the Maze Runner series is about a boy named Thomas. He wakes up in a lift with no memory of his life except for his first name, but he isn’t the only one. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds a crowd of kids who welcome him to the Glade, a large area enclosed by giant stone walls. The Gladers, like Thomas, have no idea why and how they got to the glade. All they know is that the stone walls to the maze that surrounds them open every morning and closes every evening. Every thirty days, a new boy is delivered to them in the lift and supplies are delivered every two weeks. The Gladers were expecting Thomas’s arrival, but a girl is sent there the next day with a message: This will be the last one. Ever. This changes everything and when supplies stop arriving, everyone panics. The effort to solve the maze increases as disasters start happening. The stone walls stop closing and the sun stopped rising. Grievers come into the Glade every night and a Glader is taken away. It is up to Thomas to find a way out before it’s too late. I would rate this 374-page book 4.5 stars out of 5 because the suspense and danger level is very high with a lot of action. I see why others like this book so much and I would recommend this book to you (if you hadn’t read this book yet).
