The Maze Runner

James Dashner

Reviewed by Nicholas 5th grade


Smash, smash, Smash as Thomas' head hits the metal box. Thomas wakes up in a metal box all he remembers is his name. When he gets out of the metal box he is in a place surrounded by a Horrific maze. The people in the place need a way to get out. They know they are being used but they do not know what for. Will they find a way out of the terrible maze?


I thought this is the best book I have ever read. It was action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat. Also it took a lot of twists in the plot and is a great read. When you thought someone was okay one more second and they are in deep trouble. I love the Maze Runner.


I recommend this book to people who like realistic fiction. I recommend the 2nd, 3rd, 4th book to the same people. They all have one unrealistic thing but the characters talk like it is really realistic. That is my book review for the Maze Runner and I loved this book.
