The Maze Runner

Late last year I saw an advert on my tv for a new film called The Maze Runner. I’m going to be completely honest, the only reason I wanted to see the film was because Dylan O’Brien featured in it, but when I actually had the opportunity to go to the cinema to see the film, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The Maze Runner has been described as “a must for fans of the hunger games” because it is the same type of action in the films/books, however I think James Dashner came up with such an original idea while writing these books. The film starts with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) appearing in a strange setting that is ‘the glade’ after being shot upwards from underground in ‘the box’ and not being able to remember a thing. ‘the glade’ is surrounded by ‘the maze’ which Thomas is later told he must not enter under any circumstances, so you can imagine what happens later.

I’m not going to give too much away about the film in case there is still some of you who plan on watching it. After seeing the film I desperately wanted to add The Maze Runner and it’s follow up books: The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure and The Kill Order, to my small book collection. So far I have read both The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials and no matter how much I want to read The Death Cure, I’m trying to resist until after The Scorch Trials movie comes out. There are some slight differences between the story line in the book and in the movie of The Maze Runner but I’ll leave that to you to decide if the changes made the plot line better or not (there is no way I can choose).

  1. I’ve heard so much about this series. And for some odd reason, I have all of the books (even the prequel) but not the first book. So I guess I can’t start it until I get my hands on The Maze Runner. And I’m the type that refuses to go see the movie until I read the book first, and even after reading it I still don’t see the movie in fear that it may ruin my impression of the book. But it’s relieving to hear that you’re eager for the next movie adaption even after you’ve read the first two books. I’ll have to read them soon and check out the movie!

    1. I’m normally the same, I can’t ever read a book after saying the film but I knew I had to when it came to The Maze Runner. I’m so glad you’re going to read the books X
