it was ok
Read from May 04 to June 09, 2012

This book was just kind of meh.
First, I found the language in the Glade incredibly distracting for the first 60-ish pages (it was like I needed a separate dictionary to explain the book to me).
Once I got the gist of the language, the story was easier to follow...but just never got great. I never really felt an attachment to any character...so by the end when characters are dying, I wasted to feel something, yet there was nothing there.
Also, Thomas was kind of a dolt.
Other reviewers have said what's missing far better than I have (i recommend Izzy's review since it is spot on). Bottom line is The Maze Runner is just kind of okay. The story was interesting, but it really didn't leave me all that inclined to rush out and read the rest of the series.
