Recommendation: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

This book is a sci-fi dystopia, similar theme to Susan Collin’s Hunger Games trilogy, the characters are brainwashed and sent to a labyrinth, with no escape.

Thomas wakes up only remembering his name, not how he came to be surrounded by 60 kids, all trapped in a maze with Grievers, I imagine as slug type creatures, with sharp spikes protruding out of their bodies, which will kill any kid that gets in their way when it is night time, and if they are left alone in the maze.

This book is quite creepy, very dark and brutal. Thomas believes he is sent to save everyone and find a way out of the maze. To do that he must become a maze runner.

The sequel, Scorch Trials, is out in October.

Check out the Maze Runner trailer, finalist for a book video award.

Pretty scary!
