Read from May 11 to 14, 2010

What a dizzying, creepy, trippy maze! Once I accepted the lingo of the Gladers I really enjoyed this intense fury of a journey. It really bought back memories for me of Lord of the Flies (The whole pecking order of authority). This story really grabbed me after Thomas met up with his first griver then at each turn of this riddling maze I just had this icy hesitation. Each chapter grew into a crescendo that made it the ultimate page turner. It really kept me guessing and made me very anxious to read the follow up in the series. I think YA that like fast pace distopian style rise against "The Man" books well love this. There are disturbing, frightening and many violent parts so use caution reading to young children.
