Marsh's Report on The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner
Maze Runner #1
By James Dashner
Book Report by Marsh

            Thomas arrives in a place called the Glade.  He doesn't remember anything except his first name.  The people in the Glade have one thing that they need to do, escape the Maze.  In the Glade there are people called the Runners that map the parts of the Maze trying to figure out patterns.  A girl arrives a day after Thomas.  This is extremely rare because there are no girls in the Glade and people arrive years apart.  The girl is in a coma.  She triggers something called the Ending while she sleeps. The sky is always gray and the Maze doors stay open so the Grievers come out into the Glade.  The Grievers are metal snail hybrid things.  When the girl wakes up from her coma she tries to help Thomas find the code to escape the Maze. 

            Can they escape the Maze?  Find out in The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

            I loved The Maze Runner.  It was a great book.  I liked how it had action and adventure.  I also liked how brave and smart Thomas was, that is why he was my favorite character.  I would not have considered any changes to the plot.  I recommend this book to people that like action and adventure.

I give The Maze Runner 5 MONSTERS
