The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Maze Runner

Caden Francois, November 28, 2012

Maze Runner By: James Dashner

I think that the Maze Runner was a great, fast paced book. I liked how there was no rest between action, no “filler” words, as it were. Once each little piece of action came to an end, James Dashner neatly transitioned to another adventure. The book starts with Thomas, a boy with no memory but his name, and a group full of other such boys in the same predicament. They are trapped inside a giant maze with monsters roaming it’s corridors. Each night they are safely closed in, and each day they fervently track the maze, trying to find a way out. On page 186, Thomas thinks “Never before had the sheer size of the Maze truly hit him. Miles and miles and miles. With it’s walls that moves, every night, he finally understood why the Maze was so hard to solve.” It seemed that they were doomed to stay in the Maze until they were all killed by the monsters outside their home. The theme of this book is to never give up, no matter how bleak the situation is. Eventually you will prevail. I like this theme and how we can apply it to our lives, and I think that the Maze Runner is definitely on my list of top books.
