The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Sci-Fi, Dystopian, Puzzles, Survival, Mind Control
Thomas wakes up with no memory before his arrival in the Glade. Now he joins a large group of other boys who have been working to survive and solve the maze they’re stuck in. Soon everything begins to change and their escape becomes desperate. It was frustrating to have so little explained in the beginning, but it made it much more exciting to slowly figure things out along with Thomas as the story went on. I am hugely intrigued by the world introduced at the very end though and I can’t wait to see what it will become in the next two books.
