The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I have to admit I spent most of the day today finishing this book (shhhh don't tell my husband! I was supposed to be taking the Christmas stuff down!).
I loved it! I loved the writing - kept the pages turning. I loved Thomas and Newt and Teresa, and the others. I loved the concept which is:
Thomas "wakes" up in an elevator type lift and is pulled into the "glade" - a large area surrounded by walls, full of other boys around his age, and all of them suffering memory loss - he has no idea of any of his history, his last name, or why he's there.
What follows is lots of intrigue - why are they there, what is the Maze really?
This is the first book in a trilogy, and I absolutely can't wait for the next one!!
