Review:I've read this book a few years back, but let's do a review anyway since the movie just came out.
This book is about a bunch of boys trying to escape a maze that closes during night time and changes the walls of the labyrinth every night. Grievers are also released during night time and nobody who was caught locked-out in the maze has ever returned and told what a griever might look like.
There are groups inside the Glade in-charge of their owns tasks while living inside. One of the groups are called the Runners, who are tasked to map out the Maze. The last boy, Thomas, who came in the Glade through the Box starts out learning the ways on the Glade up until he went out to the Maze before it closed one night. After that, everything started to change, which led some of the Gladers to dislike Thomas.
It's a very interesting read. Although the ending was a little unexpected, it seemed to have left me hanging, took me no time at all to jump right into the next book.
Would recommend this book to post-apocalyptic genre fans. If you like The Hungers Games, you might want to lower your expectations a little bit. Also, the dialogue used by the Gladers are not recommended for children.
