The Maze Runner

Postby Whiterook » Sat Sep 13, 2014 2:39 pm

I'm currently reading The Maze Runner

A young boy named Thomas wakes up in a box...and elevator that lifts him up into 'The Glade'...a square compound-like settlement of young boys. They are basically, all trapped there...outside the tall-walled compound is the Maze; filled with terrifying mysteries, and deadly. Every day, the walls open, and 'Runners' try to map the maze to figure out a way out...but it apparently changes, and getting back into the compound isn't a guarantee!

Very "Lord of the Fly's"!

I just started and it's very good. It's coming out in a few weeks as a major motion picture so, I'm going to try and finish it by then :D

Sounds interesting, there are a lot of these "young adult" books out these days and a lot of them are quite good. Certainly better than the ones I grew up with. Looks like its part of a trilogy, look forward to your thoughts on the other two.
