But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there \- or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything \- even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.Read Less

The environment of the characters reminds me of the lord of the flies and lost the drama series where they are surrounded by walls that move around. You don't know what is going to happen next, quite unpredictable and there is hope that they will escape from the maze one day.

The Maze Runner was action packed right from the start. There was never a dull moment and it kept me enthralled until the last second. There were so many emotions packed into it, and I couldn't help getting attached to the characters.

Look out for the Grievers!
From the first page I was entrawled with the story of Thomas and the other gladers. I couldn't stop reading, it was a page turner. Although not suitable for a younger audience, my teenagers loved this as well. I can't wait to read what happens in the sequel.
