Our new Book Club selection is The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
The reader enters the Maze with Thomas, who wakes up to his new world and life. He has arrived at The Maze – a community of about 30 preteen and teen boys who all have mysteriously appeared there with no memories of their previous lives. The day after Thomas’s arrival, a girl is delivered and the plot truly unfolds.
Part Hunger Games, part Lord of the Flies, part LOST. Fast paced, suspenseful and intriguing. Definitely a GREAT read and the first book in the trilogy.
Book Club will discuss this book On Friday, May 9, 2014
