“Dashner offers up a dark and gripping tale of survival set in a world where teenagers fight for their lives on a daily basis…With a fast-paced narrative steadily answering the myriad questions that arise and an ever-increasing air of tension, Dashner’s suspenseful adventure will keep readers guessing until the very end, which paves the way for the inevitable continuation.” Publishers Weekly
“Dashner creates a dangerously captivating world filled with riveting action and suspense, leaving the reader anxious for more. Thrilling twists and turns make this superb plot even better as it moves at a steady but enticing pace. The various clues hidden in the maze and glade will pique readers’ curiosity as they search alongside the characters for the answers to the many questions of the glade. The dynamic characters Dashner creates round off this incredible story, making it as bright as the trilogy it has begun.” VOYA
“Dashner knows how to spin a tale and make the unbelievable realistic. Hard to put down, this is clearly just a first installment, and it will leave readers dying to find out what comes next.” Kirkus Reviews
“Dashner’s gripping, amazing tale…thrusts readers into a seriously scary and confusing world, right along with Thomas. Prepare for a wild ride as Thomas acclimates, kicks some monster butt, and discovers a terrible secret.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

Compelling

Who would throw a bunch of kids into a seemingly unsolvable maze inhabited by killer robot slug monsters? I recommend you dive into this compelling first book in what I hope turns out to be an awesome trilogy to find out. While not quite as well written as "The Hunger Games" (the first one, not the sad excuse for a trilogy ender), the story is still compulsively readable...or listenable. Narrator Mark Deakins is a pretty solid reader. He does a particularly good job with the dialogue, sounding at ease with the strange slang Dashner has thrown into his dystopian universe. I can't wait to see the movie.
