I am comparing the Maze runner to the house of scorpion. I really like both book but i liked the maze runner more it wasn't as well written as the house of scorpion but it kept me reading non stop. They are similar such as Matt is thrown into el patron's house not knowing how dangerous and corrupt he is. Thomas is put in the maze not knowing why he was sent there. They are different because in maze runner he is trapped i a maze trying to get out and its more violent in the house of scorpion Matt is trying to sneak out without violence.
