The Maze Runner

This 1st book in the trilogy amazed me with the awesome settings and very well written descriptive place in the maze or what this maze all about! SUPER EXCITED to read the 2nd installment which is The Scorch Trials! I need to pack my mind ready for another adventure with Thomas and Teresa and the rest of the shanks! Hahaha! James Dashner, you’re indeed the DUDE – I love how you write! Thank you so much for sharing this with all the readers!! :D 

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

My tweets will probably answer my meaning of “insane” while reading this book last couple of days lol.

  • Now, I’ve drawn an inspired drawing again—The Maze Runner. I hope to keep this one and not lose it.
  • I drew it because at first I can’t picture it in my mind so I took a pencil and a blank paper and start sketching & ding! Got it!
  • Bah!!! I lost my inspired drawing of The Maze Runner!! NOOO. I just put it on the shelf and then….disappeared just like that! :(
  • I need it!!! I want to change a bit with my drawing. Bah! :\
  • Fine. At least I found Gemma-Ty drawings. But I really want that Maze Runner too! :|
  • The Maze Runner is full of incredible descriptions & I’m trying really hard to imagine the closest picture to every detail as much as.. …possible in my head. Haha
  • Really an interesting book!! This is really great! So far so good! :)
  • Can’t wait to find out what happens to Thomas and Teresa!! The Maze Runner is a must read book!!!

  • I feel like one of the luckiest shanks out there LOL receiving a tweet from James Dashner feels so awesomeage!! :D
Celebrating till my eyes started to feel heavy… my last tweet that night.
  • Lucky shank needs some sleep now. I want to get up early. Good night Gladers! ;)
WOW. Just looking at those tweets posted by me…idk if you still don’t get me how AWESOMEAGE this book is!! YOU REALLY REALLY HAVE TO READ IT! Even on my Facebook, I posted a status about the maze LOL.

I read the 1st chapter not long ago and I have an inspire drawing, really. The next morning it just disappeared from the shelf. I did a drawing because I need a picture to see how the maze really looks like haha. Call me mad..but really lol I needed it. And YES. I really threw the book across the room. The beginning gave me GOOSEBUMPS. James Dashner did an amazing job writing this book!! A MUST READ for the Hunger Games fans out there! Idk if I should go on because most of my tweets says it all and everything!
I’m having a Glader accent disease. I kept using shank, shuck. haha! It’s true, I have the shuckiest short hair now. I’ll post a picture real soon.

I love how the character in the book, Thomas, asks a lot of questions. You know, itching to get answers – curious of just about every thing. ‘Cause that’s how we learn – we simply ask questions to those who knows something better than us. Thomas was a guy who can’t just NOT do something when something wrong where he landed on. He doesn’t give up easily. He keeps pushing himself that there must be a way to SOLVE the thing. Thomas always thinks too. Think think. Even before sleeping… I really love this character. The book is hilarious. Absolutely! Made me laugh out loud and my siblings think I’m laughing with their jokes when I’m not haha! Thomas MADE ME LAUGH. Thomas’ a Greenie and so is Teresa and me three LOL. ;)

The story’s been stuck in my head. Ponder ponder..of what’s going to happen to their world. Oh gosh I remember…I feel like crying now. Chuck. Oh my shuck-face Chuck.

Anyway, Teresa is a lovely character. Lots of clues were hanging in the air for Thomas when she arrives in Glade. Her hero: Thomas. I won’t say any CLUES for you. You have to read it. No spoilery stuffs. I gotta end this before it gets too rambly… The adventure continues on The Scorch Trials.
