The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner, #1) by James Dashner

BLUF: Skip this series. If you do choose to read this story, don’t expect it to be anything like the Hunger Games.

Pros

  • Good idea for a story

Cons

  • Poor execution of the story
  • Characters have no depth
  • Characters use works like “shuck” in place of f… (I’m not a fan of slang as is)
  • Characters suddenly and miraculously know solutions to their problems, without any sort of struggle or lead up to the realization
  • The book drags
  • The book ends in a cliffhanger

Take this with a grain of salt; I’m going to read the next book. Partially due to the cliffhanger, but mostly because I need a trilogy for the 2015 Reading Challenge.
