The Mazerunner


Hey, it’s me again. I recently read The Mazerunner.

The Mazerunner- Thomas wakes up in a box, remembering nothing about his life. All he knows is his first name. He soon arrives in a place, that the inhabitants call “The Glade.” The moment Thomas arrived he feels like he’s been there before, but he doesn’t remember coming here. The glade is surrounded by a gigantic maze, and each day when the doors open the runners go to their section and run the maze hoping to find the way out. Each night, right before sunset, the runners must get out of the maze before the doors to the maze close, or be stuck in there until the doors open the next day. Then the next day another box arrives with another person, even though there is not supposed to be another person until the next month. Then, when the box opens, there is the first girl ever to arrive in the glade. She brings along a dark prophecy. Everything is going to change.

One thing that I liked was the action. I love books with action and I can’t stand books with no action. Like when Minho, Alby, and Thomas are locked in the maze. It is full of action at that part. One thing that I didn’t like was the ending. It is Teresa and Thomas talking to each other and then it is the end. I don’t know how anyone can call that an ending. I can’t stand it when someone ends a book like that.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action, suspense, a good book that’s better than the Hunger Games, and can handle a little confusion. I would say that the reader should probably be in middle school because anyone below that could get even more confused than anyone above that age.

This book reminds me of The Hunger Games because of some of the things that happen in the book. Like the maze is like the arena for the Hunger Games to take place in. In the Mazerunner many people died, and the creators had some tricks up their sleeves, like the grievers, just like the creators of the Hunger Games. Also, in both books the people that go to the maze and arena are chosen, not by the person themselves, but by the creators.
