Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
(Goodreads) Synopsis:
Imagine waking up one day in total darkness, unsure of where you are and unable to remember anything about yourself except your first name. You're in a bizarre place devoid of adults called the Glade. The Glade is an enclosed structure with a jail, a graveyard, a slaughterhouse, living quarters, and gardens. And no way out. Outside the Glade is the Maze, and every day some of the kids -- the Runners -- venture into the labyrinth, trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in an attempt to find an exit from this hellish place. So far, no one has figured it out. And not all of the Runners return from their daily exertions, victims of the maniacal Grievers, part animal, part mechanical killing machines.

Thomas is the newest arrival to the Glade in this Truman-meets-Lord of the Flies tale. A motley crew of half a dozen kids is all he has to guide him in this strange world. As soon as he arrives, unusual things begin to happen, and the others grow suspicious of him. Though the Maze seems somehow familiar to Thomas, he's unable to make sense of the place, despite his extraordinary abilities as a Runner. What is this place, and does Thomas hold the key to finding a way out?

Review: 4 stars
The Maze Runner is amazing. It has such an unique plot. It's full of action, mystery, suspense, and has a puzzle to solve. Throughout this book, I kept on thinking: Who are the creators? Why are they studying the Gladers? I love how Thomas has a curious nature. He questions everything around him, refusing to give in and go with the flow. The slang that James Dashner creates for the Gladers, such as "shuck-face" is the one problem I had with this book. I found the slang unnecessary and hard to understand. Putting that aside, the ending will leave you wanting more!
