The maze runner review

The Maze Runner is a young-adult dystopian novel, written by About John Dashner . The story starts unfolding when a teen-hero finds himself in a maze. Unlike Divergent or The Hunger Games, where the plot of the story happens much later in the story, the conflicts suffered by the protagonist are portrayed right at the beginning of the story. The most interesting aspect of the story is that the hero and his fellow maze-dwellers have no memory of who they all are, except for their names, of course. The story reaches a tempo when the hero, Thomas and his 50 other fellow Maze Runners devise methods to get out of the maze. The story is action-packed with excellent tempo and a good smattering of violence and suspense. The author has been successful in creating mystery because a lot of strange and dangerous things happen within the Maze keeping the readers in the grips of fear and anticipation.

The maze runner review – further into the book

There is another main character in the movie, called Theresa and her relationship with the protagonist is interestingly, and most unusually described, which makes it all the more interesting. The story is fast-paced, with fair amount of fighting and mild use of profanity. People who enjoy dystopian novels and a post-apocalyptic world would definitely love reading this. The character development of the boy is quite strong and so is the complicated relationship between the boy and the rest of the boys in the maze. A huge part of the story happens within the maze and so the boys have invented their own slang to communicate with each other. The popularity and success of the book led to the production of the movie, also called The Maze Runner, and it became one of the top 10 science fiction movies of its time.
