The Maze Runner

Hello there!

 

I’d like to present my current favorite!! “The Maze Runner“!! by James Dashner

One of the things I absolutely love is reading, I can read for hours and hours (accept for food, I’d drop anything for food :3)

but yeah I love it. I love getting sucked in into the story and carried away so much you don’t even know what time it is. Until you’re stomach makes that awful sound, like “Hey, Helooooow! I’m still here. FEED ME!” It’s like a cat, it doesn’t bother you, unless it’s hungry or bored. Annoying I know 🙁

When I can’t put a book away before finishing it, I assure you it’s a good one. 😀

So… The Maze Runner, I’ve been reading until 2 am, fell asleep and picked it back up at 7, I swapped reading for sleep… yep it was that good.

 

If you’re into action, adventure and a little mystery, I definitely recommend it.

 

Here’s a little summary to get y’all excited!

 

So there’s this kid who wakes up in an elevator with no memory of his past other than the fact that his name is Thomas. When it the elevator doors open, he is pulled into a huge glade by a bunch of teenage boys who also have no memories besides what they should be called. They all share a strange vocabulary, a fondness for capitalizing words to make them special, and the same mysterious fate.

Thomas gradually discovers that the Glade (see what they did there? Capitalize it and BOOM, you got yourself a name) is run by two boys, Alby and Newt, who maintain order by enforcing strict rules and keeping all of the boys busy harvesting food and whatnot. This is important because outside the Glade is the Maze, a terrifying labyrinth of high walls covered in ivy that houses strange, lethal creatures known as Grievers. So the boys are stuck trying to stay alive as well as “solving” the Maze by running through it as fast as they can while tracking movements of the walls and trying to find an exit.

Then, a day after Thomas’s arrival, a girl is delivered through the elevator into the Glade. The boys are stunned, perplexed, worried, and perhaps a little excited to have someone who doesn’t smell like day-old socks and Axe body spray (just kidding, geez). However, unlike each of the boys, she shows up mumbling strange prophetic words and then lapses into a coma.

( summary from http://www.shmoop.com/the-maze-runner/summary.html , if you haven’t read the book, don’t read the entire artikel it has spoilers )

 

This is the first book of a trilogy, and don’t worry all books are already out in the shops, there is also a prequel. 😀

And if that isn’t already enough good news, there is more… they’re making a film of it, with as main character DYLAN O’BRIEN. If you don’t know who he is, please go educate yourself! (sorry, fangirl genes took over)

So yeah, if you do know who he is, you’ll probably be 267 572 893 times more excited to read and/or watch it. 🙂

little tip: If you’re halfway through and you think this book is awesome, order the second and maybe the third already. You’ll just want to keep reading 🙂
