Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up with no memory in the middle of a maze and realizes he must work with the community in which he finds himself if he is to escape.
I enjoyed the book, it has a similar feel to the dystopians that came out at the same time. This book has adventure, danger, and a mystery to solve. Right from the beginning Thomas is trying to figure out what is going on and he has to draw stuff out of the Gladers to pieces together the situation. At first I thought they weren’t saying what was going on, because they were secretive, but it really comes down to most of them had no clue. At times it could be slow, but I feel that the author was giving you more insight to what some of these boys felt having been in the glade for years. I have already started the next book so I can figure out what happened to the world. This is part of three book series with two prequel books.
