Book Review: The Maze Runner

Book Description-(From When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. 

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

I first heard about this book when Allison(Amarixe) did a book review on it. Later,Elle(AllThatGlitters21) made a review on it. 
This book kept me guessing even after the end. I honestly couldn't put it down. The writing is amazing. I really felt like I was in the book with the characters. I wasn't disappointed with any of the characters,even Gally. The main characters of this book are obviously Thomas and Teresa,but the author did a really good job of making characters like Chuck and Minho seem important,too. 

This book has 62 chapters. The last three chapters I really didn't even understand. In the late 50 chapters was when the book was at its best,in my opinion. And then all of a sudden everything changed at the very end. 
This book is YA,but I think ages above that will enjoy it. 
I loved this book in every single way. The plot was amazing,the characters were amazing,even the situation was remarkable. Honestly,even the sequel can't compare to this. 
What a story. I really want to check out more of James Dashner's books now. Highly,highly recommend!
