The Maze Runner

Standard

When Thomas wakes up he has no idea who he is or where he is. All he sees is darkness and the faint glimmer of light at the top of what he thinks might be the metal box, in that he is currently sitting.
Welcome to The Maze.
No one knows why they are here. Every day they send Runners into the Maze to find an exit. Each night the doors to the Maze close, keeping the Grievers and other Monsters from attackThe_Maze_Runner_poster.jpging their village. Everything is more or less peaceful until a girl shows up. The first girl ever brought up by the metal box. Clutching a piece of paper reading: She’s the last and only remembering a few things, one of them being Thomas. Problem is, he has absolutely no clue who she is. Adding to the excitement is a sudden change in the laws of the Maze.

Overall Rating:
I give this book an 9’*/10’*

My Opinion:
The book is great, but comparing it to the prequel Kill Order it kinda seems like a bit of a drab. Not in a bad way, just that it doesn’t have the same amount of gory and gross details as Kill Order. The Maze Runner has more plot line and character development. There are quite a few shocking deaths and considering that I first watched the movie, then read the book, I feel like I should add that how the characters look in the movie are almost exactly the way they are described in the book. This is a perfect first book in a series that takes place in the crappy reality that our world will be if we don’t take action to preserve our planet.

Kill Order (Prequel)

Standard

Martyn Pig stg2The Sun Flares have destroyed almost the entire population of the world. Then when the Virus takes over, Mark, Trina, Lana and Alec decide its time to leave the civilization. They get as far away from their village as possible only to find that the Virus spreads like a forest fire and soon the rest of the existing world population is dead or gone mad. On their way to HQ, they meet a small girl named Deedee, she seems to be immune to the virus.
To know if they all make it out alive and if Deedee can help save the world is up to you.

My Opinion: ( No pun intended )
The cover to the book, looks pretty brutal. But when I read the first few pages I thought about it and wanted to give it a try. That it the pre – quell to Maze Runner probably helped. I love how the characters become strong throughout the book. It’s interesting to see how much they change and how they grow together and start to rely on each other, without meaning too. At first I didn’t really like the ending, but not all books can have a happy-ever-after ending otherwise no one would read books. After I re-read the ending a couple of times I was satisfied with the ending, it makes the next book possible and that’s all that counts in a pre – quell.

Info’s about the Book:
Kill Order
FIRST BOOK (PRE-QUELL)IN THE SERIES OF MAZE RUNNER!!!!
Written by: James Dashner

Author’s Note:
As promised the review to Kill Order, but I must say it was nice not having to run through this book. I took my time and it was fun to read a bit slower than usually. Next books coming up are Life as we knew it, Numbers, Maze Runner and maybe Grave Mercy.
I also just ordered the final book of Night School and can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ll probably write a review on the series too, since I absolutely love it.

Enjoy reading the book,
Ali
