So I just finished listening to James Dashner’s The Maze Runner and I am ASTOUNDED! I downloaded the book from Audible (full disclosure, I am an affiliate) and have been listening in my car for days. Last night my life bottomed out because I was approximately an HOUR from the ending and I couldn’t wait until the next time I was in the car to hear the ending! so, I bottomed out and listened to the rest at the house; something I almost never do. Well, maybe almost never. Cuz, it seems like a pattern.
Anyway; what can I say about The Maze Runner? First of all, I think the title is a misnomer. It’s not really about the maze. It’s more about the boys; think Lord of the Flies without all the whatever. I don’t want to give ANYTHING away so I’ll just say that if you are a reader of books that you should get this book. If you like dystopian you should get this book. If you like boys you should get this book. If you like coming of age you should get this book. If you like good books you should get this book!
No wonder this book is so popular! I was on the edge of my (driver’s) seat from jump. My only complaint: I would have preferred if the last few chapters occurred in the next book. I felt way to overwhelmed by too many emotions and actions to properly process the ending. To be sure, we knew there is another book after this, so readers will want to go to the next book anyway, right? Too much too much, my brain is on overload!!!!
And there’s a movie coming out???
I’ll be first in line.
Did I mention that I can’t help but use the word “clunk” in my every day vocabulary now?
Oh I might have mentioned it on the Twitter.
