The Maze Runner- James Dashner

Has anyone else read this book? And did you think it was amazing like I did? I loved this book.  Obviously it was completely different from The Hunger Games, but it reminded me of that book in a lot of ways too. they had the same sort of suspense. What does everyone else think about it?

Re: The Maze Runner- James Dashner

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!! I loved it soooooo much! It was so full of suspense! And yes it is going to be a series. I think that the next one comes out next year....? But if you liked this book and the Hunger Games then you would love the books by Michael Grant! The first one is called Gone, And the second is Hunger! My most favorite books!

Re: The Maze Runner- James Dashner

I actually read the Maze Runner before I read the Hunger Games. So while reading the Hunger Games I was thinking the book reminded me of the Maze Runner. I love both books though and cannot wait to read the rest of the books in their series.

Reading can only make you more happy and smarter. :smileyhappy:

Re: The Maze Runner- James Dashner

I read the book the Hunger Games  about a year ago and have LOVED it ever since. I also read Graceling. every time I saw it on b&n Com it showed the Maze runner as its number 1 pick for me. I finally broke down and got it and I loved it!!!!!! The writing was great and the story was excellent. Anybody would love it!!!  i hope this book goes the way of the Hunger Games!

Re: The Maze Runner- James Dashner

I just finished The Death Cure and I absolutly hated it! The end was one of the worst endings I've ever read! 

The end could have been a thousand times better!!  The end came with no build up or sense of conculsion just BOOM! done.

 

This was one of the worst books I've ever read.

I won't go this far about The Death Cure, but it was seriously disappointing compared to The Maze Runner and even The Scorch Trials.

Re: The Maze Runner- James Dashner

Yeah it defiantly did not live up to the standards of The Maze Runner...

But then again, what book could?
