The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner #1) Reviews

  • Meredith Holley

    Q: if you could edit this book, what would you take out?

    A: the words.

    . . .

    Have you ever had an eight-year-old kid try to describe to you winning a level of a video game? Have you ever had a middle-aged man try to describe to you completing the games section of the New York Times? Did those experiences involve multiple conversations like this:

    “What is the maze?”

    “Stop asking so many questions!”

    I have to say that this book was more boring than having someone tell you in painful detail about winnin

    This book would have been great IF:

    1) the characters had some personality

    2) the main character - Thomas - weren't such a Gary Stu and showed some character development and growth instead of conveniently "remembering" important information to advance the plot

    3) the book weren't filled with atrocious made-up slang - "shuck-face," really, is this supposed to be cool?

    4) the villains - Grievers - were actually scary or dangerous

    5) the maze had some kind of mystery about it and not limited to moving w

    I've just finished and all I can say is holy shuck! This book is awesome!

    I was a little bit scared when I started this book that I wasn't going to like it as it is my first real dystopia/sci-fi book I've read. After about 110 pages it got to the point where I couldn't put it down for anything even while eating dinner I had it one hand and when bedtime came I wanted to stay up all night and read it.

    The plot was fast paced, suspenseful and full of suprises. The twists and turns this book took sho

    Preamble: I apologize up front about the spoilers in this review. They are hidden, but if you don't want to know some of the spoilers, don't click on them! Fair warning!

    Review: I read this at the encouragement of one of my kids, who dearly loves this book. So let me state right up front, buddy, I'm glad you loved this book. Now I'm going to express my opinion. Please remember that we're all allowed to have our opinions, even if mine is wrong.

    Now, I didn't hate The Maze Runner by any means. But

    THIS. This is how you write a special snowflake without him turning into a Gary Stu. Or make me want to claw my eyes out.



    Thomas, the MC, suddenly shows up in an isolated place/society with no memory of his family or friends. The only thing he can remember is his name. Turns out he's inside a place called the Maze and most its male occupants have been here for two years, trying to find a way out while forging a living for themselves.



    It's not easy though. The walls of the Maze shift every night a

    “It is a curious thing, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”


    Thomas is the same. Yes, he desires to be a Runner, but when it comes down to the heroic shit like that night in the Maze, he bumbles into it, relying on instinct and more luck than skill. This, to me, cancels out the Chosen One mark. I want to see my characters struggle in life-or-death situations, instead being all calm and collected because they have Spesual, Unparalleled Powers.



    His personality isn't all sunshine and daisies either. I don't mean in a woe-is-me-I'm-special, whiny, emo way, but more endearing and realistic.



    He gets confused and frustrated. He lashes out at people and even thinks his only friend is annoying sometimes. Not condescendingly, but like when you have a bad day and your kid is just so freaking annoying! It's human nature.





    The setting is fantastic. I love Lord of the Flies and the Glade mirrors that perfectly. A bunch of boys marooned in a place and forced to survive in their own. Though they're far more organized and capable, even when THINGS happen later.

    "Order," Newt continued. "Order. You say that bloody word over and over in your shuck head. Reason were all sane around here is cause we work out butts off and maintain order."




    The sole thing I didn't enjoy was the romance element. It stank of insta-love because Thomas thinks he knows the girl, Teresa, from somewhere in the depths of his memory, but can't get a grip on it. Sort of like soulmate in a previous life stuff.



    I understand it's part of the overarching plot and will be explained in later books, but it still got on my nerves even with it having a minimal screentime. If The Maze Runner were in Teresa's POV, I suspect it will be more romance-based because the main connotation with her character is as Thomas's object of affection and mystery. Not that I don't like her (she has her kick-ass moments), but it still doesn't sit well with me.



    But it's very tiny problem and I really enjoyed The Maze Runner. If you love dystopians with an endearing hero (who will be played by the fantastic Dylan O'Brien in the movie adaption) and a Lord of the Flies twist, give this a try. As for me, I'll be jumping straight to the sequel.



    Yes. Yes, you are.

    Reading this book + No sleep= brain shock . Oh more like my brain was blown into freaking little bits. I kept thinking about it after I was done. I finished it into the late hours of the night and I kept circling in my head what was going to happen next. The point is moot but I am definitely going to read the sequel The Scorch Trials.

    From the start as the reader we have NO idea what is happening. All Thomas can remember is his name. Not where he came from or any specific details of his life. Ne

    Well. There was....well, first of all, I have to get a cup of water because I have a major headache.

    *Goes to get cup of water*

    *Returns*

    Aah. Much better.

    Okay, first second of all, my friend recommended this book. So I requested it, and (foolish me) left it lying on the table where I do my homework, in plain sight of my parents. Oops. So THEN my dad says, at dinner:

    "Oh, Ellie, by the way--I borrowed that book of yours, Runner? Or something?"

    *gulps nervously* "The Maze Runner?"

    "Yeah, that's it.
