The Maze Runner



Just finished the above book - similar theme to the Hunger Games, sort of.

A bunch of boys are taken from their lives, their memories erased and sent to the 'Maze' - which is patrolled by hideous half mechanical/half flesh creations. The idea is to solve the maze and escape, but no one can remember anything about their previous lives except for the main protagonist who thinks he may have been there before...

Took a while to get into the story but if you can get past the colloquial dialogue, its worth sticking with it. Again, another 'young adult' book, but definitely still worth a look.

For me, 7/10.

Ok, just finshed the sequel to this book and I have to say it is both frustrating as hell, but also kind of intriguing. The plot keeps hinting at some all important reason for the whole she-bang but doesn't get around to explaining what on earth is going on. It's driving me mental.

*sigh* no doubt I will purchase the last book in the trilogy!

A Queen's gotta do what a queen's gotta do. And how can you leave a trilogy two thirds through?
