When i first heard of it, i was immediately attracted to the title as well as the book cover although they always say never to judge a book by its cover, i was still curious to read it. It's absolutely suitable for anybody to read and I was into it after the very first few chapters. The author's way of narrating and how confused you are at the beginning of the story makes you eager to complete reading and makes it more enjoyable.
The plot is basically about Thomas who find himself in a place called the Glade, with no memories of his own along with 50 other boys, called the Gladers, all trying to find a way out of that maze by sending Runners to study the maze, and should come back before the stone doors of the Glade is closed or to be counted dead because of the Grievers, the giant monsters that live in the maze, outside the walls of the Glade. Each month a new boy comes just as Thomas did. But after Thomas's arrival thing began to change and got more complicated than it already was. The next day a girl comes, which was a surprise to the Gladers, with a note that says that she was the last one to ever arrive to the Glade.
The difference between the personalities of the characters and their reactions played an important change to the events of the story, leaving it complicated and tragic in a way. By the end, i was able to feel for characters, going through their dilemmas and what's such, it was definitely a page-turner. Overall, this book series as a whole was amazing and I can't wait for the fourth book to come out, although I'm a bit heastiant about it but I will be buying it for sure. Highly recommend it.
