I wasn't sure what exactly to expect with The Maze Runner, but what I got was an exciting read that proved hard to put down. When I started the book, I had as many questions as the book's main character, Thomas, since he didn't know more than I did. I really liked how Dashner set it up so that Thomas and the reader got their answers at the same time. Dashner also does a great job at developing not just his main character but some of the secondary characters as well really adding to the story and getting the reader to care about all these boys and Teresa as well. The book is full of many twists and turns and is able to keep the reader guessing until the very end. If you enjoyed The Hunger Games, then you will definitely want to give this series a try. Overall The Maze Runner proved to be a great read.
