This book is part of a five part series by James Dashner. It is a dystopian novel filled with twists and turns that will have your stomach churn. It is about a boy who finds himself in a place called the Glade. He has no memory of who he is and is surrounded by other boys in the same predicament. These boys have no recollection of their past lives and or how they got into the Maze. The Glade is surrounded by the Maze, which is filled with nasty creatures called Greivers that have a lethal sting unless the victim is given an antidote. The boys are trapped in the Glade by the Maze and must find a way out–they have been for at least the past 2 years. Everything changes when a girl comes into the scene and disrupts the flow of things. This book is very engaging all the way until the end. The adventure in the story and the supporting cast is great, however, the main character seems a little one dimensional, and very similar to other main protagonists of the same genre. Either way, this is a really good read and I recommend reading it.
