When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade--a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up--the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind. From the Hardcover edition.

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.
