The enormous walled glade within the maze feels familiar to Thomas even though the only thing he can remember from his past is his name. Now to break free and discover the mysteries of his past, Thomas has a plan: First, become a runner. Then, solve the maze without getting killed by the horrible things that lurk within its walls.

The Maze Runner is a well paced and intensely interesting story without any slow spots to get lost in. As a reader you should be aware that while this story provides an ending of sorts, it concludes in an unsatisfactory enough manner that you may instantly desire book two.

The Maze Runner contains:

  • Death
  • Killing (by action and inaction)
  • Fist fighting 
  • Injuries
  • Death threa
  • Depression 
  • Many tense moments
  • Use of the word cra* and regular use of the word clunk in place of it.
  • Name calling

The story itself pictures a group of young people (teens mostly), living under some very demanding circumstances, hard rules and harsher punishments. This produces several moral quandaries where discipline, order, justice and mercy are at odds. Some young readers may find the circumstances or events of this story disturbing.
