"If you ain't scared, you ain't human."
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers--boys whose memories are also gone.
Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out--and no one's ever made it through alive.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
4/5 stars (really liked it)
I have had this book on my to-read list for a very long time, saw that it was going to be a movie so finally decided to read it. The premise of the book is very intriguing. Thomas is thrown into this new world where he has a million questions that no one will answer. The one thing he knows is that his name is Thomas and he wants to be a runner. He gets to know boys at the Glade and makes friends as well as enemies. Also the girl arrives and he someone how even though he doesn't know it, knows who she is. The ending was great and really had me wanting to read the second one.
