81. Maze Runner - James Dasher

Delacorte Press, 2009
376 pgs.
Rating: 4

Thomas arrives at "the Glade" with his memory erased but with a weird sense of recognition. There is the huge maze with monstrously hight walls and doors that clang shut every night. Doors that protect them from the terrifying "grievers." Maze walls that change every night. Unanswered questions. Getting stung and going through "the change." A new boy arrives every month. Supplies arrive. For two years this has gone on. Thomas is the last newbie/"greenie" male. Everything changes after his arrival.

When I got to the end of the book and saw the words END OF BOOK ONE I threw the book across the room. There's no joy in this book at all. I don't know about its futre - a series? Enough of these series! Tell a good story in one book!
