The Maze Runner

There are alternate cover editions for this ASIN here and The Maze EpubhereIf you ain’t scared you ain’t human When Thomas wakes up in the lift the only thing he can remember is his name He’ This book was recommended for fans of the Hunger Games series a series that has become one of my favorites I began The Maze Runner excitedly hoping for an eually enjoyable dystopian adventure I didn t find itThe plot was intriguing and kept me reading in fact it was probably the only reason why I kept reading Some writers are able to seamlessly integrate characterization and good writing with a fast moving plot James Dashner is not one of them The pacing is strange and Dashner s use of cliches became very irritatingThe main character Thomas was annoying Rather than allowing his readers to feel what Thomas feels Dashner chooses to tell We are told many times how frustrated and confused Thomas is but we can t identify with him Some of the supporting characters such as Minho and Newt could be interesting but they remain secondary to Thomas In addition I was frustrated with the character Teresa Teresa is the only female main character instead of making her an intriguing powerful female she is christened with flimsy adjectives such as very pretty and smart becoming yet another 1 dimensional character I realize that this is a plot driven story and not a character driven one but I would hope that the characters would at least be appealing to the readerCriticism aside I found the book enjoyable and the plot kept me hooked I felt that the epilogue was well written and I might seek out the rest of the series when it is published Ultimately it s unfortunate that Dashner s poor writing takes away from a good story line in the hands of a writing master I believe that The Maze Runner could have been something extraordinary255EDIT More than a year later I have not procured any other books in the series nor do I intend to Personally speaking this is one series better left alone

’s the only way out and no one’s ever made it through alive Everything is going to change Then a girl arrives The first girl ever And the message she delivers is terrifying Remember Survive Ru The last page is turned and all I have to say is this What for the love of all that s good and pure was this foolishness Aaaaand rant When I m sick the snotty phlegmy febrile kind of sick and my brain feels sizzlingly fried I sometimes turn to easy reading fluff to give my neurons a break Sometimes this strategy backfires and the fluffy book actually tries to break my long suffering brain cells with its sheer stupidityIt s not even mediocre mediocrity would be elevating this book to the undeserved heights It s simply boring uninspired ridiculous and poorly executed Let me sum up the things that I thought were awful stupid or just plain ridiculous apparently my febrile brain likes making lists The dumbed down plot full of holes that relies on pointless withholding of any useful information Seriously When there is no reason for keeping the characters in the dark all suspense goes out of the window There was no reason why nobody could tell Thomas what was going on when he showed up in the Glade or when he saw the Doors or the MazeWhile I m at it can anyone please explain why the klunky shanking shuckface are the words randomly capitalized Is the book meant to evoke the thoughts of the German language where the nouns are capitalized Or was the author too lazy to come up with proper names for places and instead just threw in some capitalization Foolishness I sayThe frustrating to me approach of never discussing what happened with those who went through the Changing The lack of curiosity about the only potential exit from the Maze that the boys have found in two years The pointless doing the same thing over and over again just to come up with the same results relishing in the special status of the Runners instead of just sitting down to discuss the situation and their findings The atrocious unbearable awkward slang Replacing fuck with shuck and shit with klank for PG purposes does not work when you shove it unto the readers faces every sentence or so At least be inventive or make it sound organic but all that s achieved is sounding like a five year old complaining to her Mummy You re the shuckiest shuck faced shuck there ever was I rest my case in the face of this nonsense The silver plate on which everything is handed to the absolutely special protagonist Because Thomas is so special at fragging everything He doesn t even need to try Instead when we need a proof of his awesomeness the get the sudden impulses and urges that are never wrong or if that fails simply a uasi recollection that saves the day Which segues into my next frustration point The lack of any character development besides the author wants it so approach The author knows what he wants to happen in this book and he moves the characters along like checkers pieces just to make plot happen The characters are just sorta there are static and therefore I could never get invested in them enough to care even when some of them died Especially when the death of at least one of them was pointless The pointless villains and scares that should have been comic relief instead Yes the Grievers and the strangely non menacing way they were portrayed The Maze that is anything but intimidating that effect is due to the non spectacular writing really The Changing oh so scary of experience that does not really affect Thomas the Special Snowflake not even a minor inconvenience The pointless vilifying of perfectly reasonable characters for the sole purpose of making our special protagonist even snowflake ish It s poor Gally who s labeled as a bully before he s had a chance to do anything even remotely bully ish except for staring at Thomas with dislike To cement his unlikeability Gally is described as physically unattractive because in shallow books like this one if you look like a villain you must be one Gally whose distrust of Thomas is perfectly logical if any of the characters would take any time to think about it instead of singing accolades to the Special Snowflake The too stupid to live characters Seriously Every few pages my reaction was really You guys haven t tried that You haven t thought of this You haven t talked about that Ugh The action scenes that read like a video game narration This does not work in real life even the kind of real life that involves a few dozen of teen boys stranded in a few suare miles area where they successfully run a farm a slaughterhouse and an industrial size kitchen The big reveal that is simply told to us without anyone really earning it No the characters do not work hard just to get the pay off they get told all that s happening like a cheap trick The absolute lack of any suspense or motivation to help propel the plot forward No everything is simplistic childish and therefore strangely light and unconcerning There is no depth no real substance and no complexity It s page filler easy to read easy to forget15 starsYawn A frustrated yawn at that
