really liked it

In this novel Dashner has created a unique and unusual scenario and thrown a bunch of teenagers into the middle of it. The reader too, is also landed into the middle of his terrifying maze. We become one of the Gladers - unsure of what's going on, and desperate to find out. In many respects, it reminded me of the hit US TV series, "Lost". For years we followed the exploits of the island's characters in a bid to find out what the hell was going on. And just like the TV series, Dashner concludes each short chapter with a hook which compels us to turn the page. However, unlike "Lost", when we reach the end of "The Maze Runner" we are left satisfied with the explanation and don't feel like we were duped by the author or that he was making it up as he went along.
A highly original concept which makes for electrifying and compelling reading.
