The Maze Runner


this was an easy read, comparable to harry potter in the fact that i think younger readers would enjoy it. the book reminds me a lot of the hunger games but maybe for a little younger crowd?. its an intense page turner that leaves you wanting more!! the book is also the first book in a trilogy, the next book is set to release in october. I found this book on a web site where you enter in the name of the books you love and it gives you a list of recommended books for you. i was not disappointed. :)
summary:
Thomas wakes up in an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. He emerges into a world of about 60 teen boys who have learned to survive in a completely enclosed environment, subsisting on their own agriculture and supplies from below. A new boy arrives every 30 days. The original group has been in "the glade" for two years, trying to find a way to escape through a maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope. Then a comatose girl arrives with a strange note, and their world begins to change.... Can you solve the maze???

I read this a few months ago too! I saw it on amazon.com as a recommendation for me and then just checked it out from the library. I thought it was pretty good, we'll see how the next one goes.

i'm just curious as to what the difference between "love" and "loved" is on the post labels? is one better than the other? i need the 411. ;)

i'll tell you the difference... someone messed up and made up their own "love" label. wha? no one creates new labels except for ME! :) anywho, i fixed it.
