    The book started when they just got left the WCKD’s maze. They successfully escaped the maze, but the next challenge that they need to face is the world, the flare, the cranks. My favorite character in this book is Minho, because he can cheer others up when they are in a hard situation, but he can also lead the whole group of boys seriously. Conflicts between characters start to happen, they are confused about who to trust. The amazing part about this book is that you can think about the situation that happened in different perspective.The perspective of the book that the story plot gave you makes you think that WCKD is bad, but when you look at the whole situation in WCKD’s perspective, they are trying to save live, why are they wrong? Trying to think in another perspective, such as Thomas and his other friends, WCKD is killing them to save other people, what’s the point? They didn’t deserve to die. When you look at Teresa’s perspective, because she is struggling between the reality that what should she do. She didn't mean to betray the boys, I think she is confused about what she did too. I think this is the most interesting part about the books and makes people think that the world isn’t fair, life is cruel. This situation that they are going through this video is very hard to relate to our daily life as a middle school teenager, but the situation of sometimes looking or thinking at something in a different perspective might change the way we look at things and forget the bias about the object. I've felt something similar to the situation that Thomas faced in the story, got betrayed by someone that he trust the most, when I'm in 5th grade, I told something secret to my best friend but she ended up telling others and make fun of me behind my back. If I can change something about this story, I'll like to change the ending a little, because I think the ending is too rush. I strongly recommend this book and also there is a movie of this book that came out called "the scorch trials". It's absolutely amazing. Whoever enjoys young adult such as the Hunger games will also love this book as well.

    In this book, the boys already complete the second challenge the Scorch Trials. To me, this book isn't as interesting as the other two books, I got a little bored halfway through the book, I think if I can change the story, I'll make the boys actually trying to help save the cure of the flare, but not join WCKD. In this book, they are just basically running away from everything and want to go back and destroy WCKD. And I think the ending is very interesting, it's kind of a sad ending. I would recommend this book to other people who enjoys reading the first two books.

    I didn't like this book as much as other 3 books. It was interesting to know the life of Thomas and Teresa before the maze and how they met. This book included a lot of killings which I don't like a lot, even though I like books with some violence and conflict, but reading this book feels like the whole book is just they killing a lot of peoples. But I still like how they introduce the character and explain their background. I can't wait till 2016 for the 2 prequel is out, even though I'm don't like this book that much, but I still want to know more about what they did before they went to the maze. I suggest people who is interested in how Thomas and Teresa met and who they really are before going to the maze to read this book.

    may_c's book review was featured in The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, Book One).
    This book is really amazing. It's the first book of the Maze runner trilogy. The story started from Thomas waking up in a place that he have absolutely no idea where he is. He can't remember anything before waking up in the maze same as others that is already in the maze. All the main characters are like teenagers just like us, but their live is in a total different situation. They are all trying to escape the maze. This book is very mysterious and involve a lot of actions in it. They faced a lot of dangerous situations in the maze, but Thomas can remain calm and actually thinking a way of trying to solve the problem unlike other gladers are just screaming and blaming that all this happened is because of Thomas. I really like the description of the book and the main character's emotions skipping between the struggle of doing it or not. Sometimes reading this book makes me feels a little bit sudden and sometimes get confused about the story plot but other than that, the book is amazing. I will strongly recommend this book to every teenager that enjoys other young adult stories such and hunger games and divergent.
