The Maze Runner -- Remember, Survive, Run
I loved The Maze Runner by James Dashner. But I'm a little worried about the movie, which hits theaters this weekend. I finally saw a full preview for it, and I was totally freaked out by the Grievers!!!! How am I going to make it through the whole film without covering my eyes?!?! If you haven't read the book yet, I highly recommend you do! The story is equal parts The Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies, survival at its most intense level. Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up trapped in the middle of a maze, with no memory of the outside world. He realizes he must work with the Glade's community of captives if he wants to escape and uncover his past.
