If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

 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.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

 Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

 Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

 Remember. Survive. Run

Look, I will be honest.  I read this book because I felt like EVERYONE had read it and I wanted to see the movie.  I ended up hating this book.  I found it to be gritty, unpleasant, unredeemable, and I found myself hoping all of the characters would die.  This book is like a  stereotypical teenage boy- a little violent, a little aggressive, and a little gross.  It put me off so much that I have no interest in watching the movie either.  Here's to hoping the giant monster things ate them all!


  1. Haha. This is hilarious. I agree, I didn't like the book either. But I did like the movie, so there's that. :P

  2. I also read the book because I wanted to see the movie. I finished the book. I finished the series because I had, HAD to find some kind of redemption somewhere, even if I fabricated it in my mind from bits and pieces of each book.

    I haven't made a single move to watch the movie. lol!!!!!
