The Maze Runner (audio)
The action starts off a little slow and I was getting a little tired of no one answering questions (but then I'm a Lost fan so I've been almost desensitized to that) but once Thomas hits the maze, it's on like Donkey Kong. The Maze Runner kept me guessing and I kept thinking that I knew what was coming up and I had like three different ideas about the ending, none of which happened. I liked that. I don't like guessing the ending before it happens. I was hoping that the second book was out so I could start on it right away but it doesn't come out til the end of the year. I won't say I was completely blown away but I wished I had gotten around to it sooner. It was a good read. The relationship between Thomas and the girl was very cool and I wonder more about his relationships between him and some of the other Gladers. I can't wait to find out more.

I'm curious how this one would be on audio because there is so much of Thomas thinking.ReplyDelete
I, like you, had my idea of how I thought it would end but I was completely wrong! And people I thought I had figured out I didn't! Can't wait for The Scorch Trials.
I've heard this book is awesome :) I'll have to check it out soon!ReplyDelete
For some reason I just can't make myself be interested in this book!ReplyDelete
@Jill - The reader was good on audio. It would have moved faster if I had read it but it was worth the listen to.ReplyDelete
@Isalys - Hope you like it.
@Amanda - The ending has some real pay-out so that was great.
This one has been on my list for awhile now. But I think I'll wait til the entire series is out before I dive in! Great review.ReplyDelete
I bet I would LOVE this on audio :)ReplyDelete
@gofita - That might be a good idea :)ReplyDelete
@Juju - It was good on audio. I liked the narrator.
