The Maze Runner

By James Dashner

What if one day you woke up with no memory of your past ?

How would you feel if you where trapped within a maze with no escape ?

What if you figured out all that was some sick experiment ?

For Thomas it's reality


A boy named Thomas arrived in a place called the glade without any memory of who he is and why he is there. He wants to find a way out, but the glade is surrounded by a maze containing creatures called grievers. The boys work together to solve the maze. Once the make it out, they come face to face with their captors, the maze creators. Later, they learn it was all a big experiment and they got angry. Another group called the rescuers come and save them. Just when they thought they were safe, they realized they were only in the second phase in the experiment.


The maze runner is set in the future where a group of kids are used to experiment on. They live in a place called the glade. It is a prison like shelter with big walls to protect the boys from harms that could come from the maze.


Thomas: is a smart brave boy who is trying to figure out who he is and why he was sent to the glade.

Chuck: is a brave character who dies in order for Thomas and all the other gladers to live.

Greviers: they are the creatures standing in Thomas and the other boys way to finding a way out of the maze.
