Small Summary

A boy named Thomas comes up in a box to a place called a glade which is surrounded by a giant maze. There are these creatures called Grievers and if you get stung you go through the changing. A boy named Ben got stung and went a little crazy and tried to kill Thomas. One night Alby got stung and Minho tried to go before the gates closed so Thomas went in the maze to save them and killed a griever. The first girl came the next day and had a note in her hand that said shes the last one. The next day the gates did not close and many people got killed. Then they had a plan to get out but some people stayed behind including Gally. The people who left survived and now are going to phase 2 Scorch Tails.



The setting Is a shrubby place called the Glade which is surrounded by A giant maze that has no way out.  At least for now no way out. The boys who work in the maze are called gladers. there are about 50-60 of them.


The Authors purpose I think  was to show how to find the mystery and never give up  even if it is a little challenging.You also have to work together with people even if they are a pain. The author also said that as a little kid he watch the movie "The Shinning", "Lord of The Flies", and "Lost" and all those movies inspired him to make The Maze Runner.


If I had to give a ratting on The Maze Runner from 1-10 I would give It a 8 and highly recommend it. I would not give it a 10 because there is some violence and inappropriate parts. But it is very exiting and adventurous.
