The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Food to eat while reading: Harmony Hominy Soup

What I liked:

The opening of this story is irresistible. A boy in a metal box who remembers nothing about his past and finds himself in a community of boys reminiscent of Lord of the Flies? Now who can resist reading on?

I love the voice of Thomas in this book. He is unique and consistent throughout the entire novel.

Dashner plays the suspense and intrigue perfectly. Just when I think I can’t stand to be in the dark anymore, he explains a bit more of what is going on. Every chapter pulled me along and forced me to keep reading.
