Review: The Maze Runner

I'm not going to lie. I originally started reading this because I have a secret love affair with Teen Wolf and Dylan O'Brien and saw the preview for the movie. As in most things in life, I was skeptical. I'm generally not a fan of reading something from a male point-of-view, so I wasn't sure where this was going to go. 

It's hard to describe this book without giving it away. It's a pretty straight forward first novel that sets up for some very interesting plot twists to occur in the sequel (at least that's what I'm hoping). I have been marketing it to my fellow readers as Lord of Files, meets Hunger Games. It very much so follows the vain of the ever growing dystopian genre, but with a little more focus on the idea of social hierarchy and Darwinism. There was a definite scientific aspect happening. 

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I found the plot to be a tad predictable, but it was a quick and exciting read and I'm looking forward to exploring the sequel and seeing the movie. 

Rating 7.5/10
