The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Published October 6, 2009

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.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

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.

Everything is going to change.

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

Remember. Survive. Run. –Goodreads

Review by Bunny

I chose this because of all it’s powerful use of language. I give it Five Stars, I didn’t hate anything.

Favorite Quotes

  • “Nice to meet ya, Shank.”
  • “Welcome to the Glade.”

My Prediction

My additional thought is kind of a prediction. My prediction is that Thomas will figure out his name and maybe remember their names for them.( The others who are in the glade.)
