If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.
Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
Everything is going to change.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
Remember. Survive. Run.
With the looming release date of the highly-anticipated movie adaptation of The Maze Runner, here are five reasons you should read the book:
The Maze Runner is action packed and will keep you up reading until the early hours. With a unique premise, it’s easy to slip into the world created by Dashner.
Reading the book before you watch the film will give you a major advantage over everyone else!
The world is so original – it even has its own dialect! This book is no pile of klunk.
There are so many dystopia novels out there at the moment, but this novel is one of the best. It’s adventurous and mysterious, with characters that you grow attached to and learn to love.
Once you’ve read The Maze Runner, you can read the rest in the series before those movies are released!
The Maze Runner is out now in paperback (£7.99) from Chicken House.
