The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, Book One) James Dashner Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The first book in the blockbuster phenomenon The Maze Runner series now features chapters from the highly-anticipated series conclusion, The Fever Code, the book that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
 
   When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
   Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
   Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
   Remember. Survive. Run.

   The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The third movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will hit screens in 2018.
 
   Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

    I read this for the first time, since I was getting bored, and I wanted to try some new series. Dude, this book is so intense! It had me on the edge of my seat the entire way! HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who wants to try a new series! After you read the books, watch the movies.

    I don’t know where to start. There are so many positive things to say! This book is incredible. I’m so happy I read this! Definitely one of my favorite books! I’m just really sad Chuck died.... the kid sounded so cute. It’s depressing. Overall, I’m on love with this series. Great job James Dasher!!! I’m in love with this series!

    This is the best book I have ever read in my life. Please do a lot more like this, and I hate Teresa. That liar, she went into the maze WITH memories, sorry I spoiled it from TFC (The Fever Code) TMR is the only thing I love for, please, please whoever is out there and is a TMR fangirl tell ME! I am lonely, I worship this book alone. This book is our future, James Dashner is a genius unlike a lot of people. And I vote that people should have more respect for us Fangirls, because this is our future and once covid nineteen takes over we will know how to hide ourself from it. James Dashner is a god, and deserves the greatest respect of everyone in the world. I suggest reading the whole series, 17 times in a row like I have done. This series is the only good book series (or book) in this stupid and annoying world. LOVE TMR!!!💯🏃🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I was only six when I started to read it, and ended it two days later because I had finished the first book. I knew just by the first sentence, that this book would change the world, and anyone who says it was dumb or they wasted their money, don’t listen to them, they clearly have no clue what an amazing book is, so FONT listen to them, they clearly don’t know what life is and why we were born. We were born to read The Maze Runner. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️But do NOT read page 250 of The Death Cure.
  • One of my favorite series!❤️

    Maze runner is an amazing book that I would recommend to anyone looking for a great book to read! I’ve fallen in love with the characters and wish they were real. I’m so happy I read this book it was totally worth it. Even though one of my favorite characters died in “The Death Cure” ☹️ I still loved the book. So buy it, believe me you’ll love it.

    This book is amazing. I have read all 5 books in The Maze Runner series and I loved them all so much that I read them again. And again...I lost count after a while. It’s just so easy to get attached to the characters and the plot! The moment I read the first sentence, I knew this book was going to take me on a long adventure. I couldn’t get my nose out of it...I had gotten in trouble a few times in class because I was reading it. (I had the physical book version at the time.) Then came along The Scorch Trials...wasn’t a big fan of the movie but the book was epic. I believe that I have spent my time and money well with this series and I cannot wait for what James Dashner has for us in the future. Once a Glader, always a Glader! 😄

    One of the best books I have read! The mystery of the Maze was really cool and fun. I do think that the other books in the series are better. TMR is one of my favorite series!!!! I recommended it to my friend and she liked it too. (My favorite character is definitely Newt❤️)
