What is unique about the setting of the book and how does it enhance or take away from the story?

Zian Bautista | 8 comments The story enhances the setting with Thomas coming up in a box and his memory completely wiped.

Owen | 7 comments The setting of the story is unique because nobody really knows where they are or why they are in Glade. Everybody's personal memories have been erased except for their age this is supported on page 1 when Thomas thought " My name is Thomas, he thought. That ... that was the only thing he could remember about his life." This setting enhances the story by adding a feeling of anxiety by also having it so almost nobody takes the newest Glader seriously.

Zian Bautista | 8 comments That's very true nobody knows anything about what's going on Thomas is left with unanswered questions as well.

I agree with what you said, but it also enhances the story by having everyone lose their memories and come up in the box not just Thomas. If it was only Thomas then he would be even more of an outcast than he already was by being the greenie. Another thing that enhances the setting is the fact that since they have no memories they make their own words for certain things like klunk and greenie.

Tommy | 9 comments The setting of the story is unique because everyone who has come up the box doesn't know Where they are, Why there are here, or who sent them there. Dozens of teenagers all got cleared of the memories, including Thomas.The setting also enhances the story because after Thomas came up the box, Teresa came up a day after and one person comes every month. Teresa had a note that said, she is the last one and they don't have any clue about how to solve the maze and get out.

Cole | 8 comments the setting of the maze runners is unique because all of the teenagers dont know where they are. The teenagers memories are erased but they know their name and age that is shown in the book when Thomas comes up the box and had his memory erased and doesn't know where he is, but he knows his name. The setting also enhances the story because a day after Thomas got out of the maze Teresa came out and she had a note that said she was the last one out of the maze.

Ashton Hedeman | 8 comments The setting is unique because it's very mysterious. It's mysterious because you don't know where they really are. You don't know if they're on a distant planet, or maybe even on Earth. They could even be 250 years in the future or maybe even 50. I think in the respect of making the setting mysterious it enhances the quality of the book because you wanna find out where they are.

I agree because nobody knows where they really are. It also does make it more interesting when they're all teenage boys. Also, they don't even know how they got there.

The setting of the story is unique because it is in a complex maze with no known exit. The walls stretch hundreds of feet high and the very heavy walls move everyday. There are also creatures called grievers that no one has ever heard about before. The maze stretches for miles and no one has found the exit. The glade has all sorts of crazy things happening like small robot bugs running around and a metal box that brings up a new boy every month. It is interesting because no one truly knows where they are or even who they are.

I agree with your thoughts because it's very strange for someone to wake up with no memory or knowledge of where they are. And the fact that everything is changing around in the maze is scary.

It is true that there are stone walls hundreds of feet high and move everyday. Its also true that no one has found an exit and there could be an exit but no one has found a clue that there is one.
