Seal of Approval – THE MAZE RUNNER by James Dashner
Written by Grant Goodman, 9/23/2014
A boy wakes up in an elevator, he can’t remember his full name, and he has no idea where he is. When the elevator grinds to a halt, he’s pulled out by a group of boys and he finds himself in the center of a deadly maze.
It has your attention, doesn’t it?
THE MAZE RUNNER is a pressure-cooker of a story that is built on the unknown. Thomas has no idea who he is (literally and figuratively), no one knows how the maze works, and no one knows if there’s any way out. What they do know? Someone keeps sending them food, someone keeps sending them new recruits, and no one has seen a girl in years.
The village at the center of the maze is a creepy mess, full of hidden corners and missing names. There’s an overwhelming sense of shadow and danger that lingers on every page.
Plus, there’s a movie version in theatres right now.
Trust me, once you start reading, you won’t stop. This is the kind of book that will destroy your sleep schedule, and it’s completely worth it. (Especially because you have THE SCORCH TRIALS and THE DEATH CURE to read, too.)
