Very intriguing from the start. I wanted to know why these children were in the maze and what it's purpose was right from the start. I've heard a lot of people complain about the language they invent but I didn't find it too distracting. Even after I read it I was still making comparisons to the minotaur story. Thomas and Theseus start with the same letters for one thing. Also the first time he see's a greiver it reminds him of a cow. They are half beast half machine similar to the minotuar.

On any count, I would definitely recommend this one to any who have not read it yet.

I just hope it doesn't turn out to be another zombie book :(
