Book to Movie: Maze Runner

I have read the book back in 2009 when the book was first published.  Erm, if you love the books you can move onto the next part or leave a comment below how much you loved it to persuade folks to read and watch the movie. (That could be taken as sarcasm, but really I wasn’t being sarcastic).   I remember the premise but not much else.  Aside from being annoyed at the main character and several other factors.  I do vaguely remember being like, “Heh, okay,” when I was done with the book, so it must have been an okay book.  I have not read the sequels.

But the trailer does make the book seem exciting…

Hit or Miss:  Can’t really say.  Maybe?  The premise is really interesting.  I can’t really imagine a film version for this that I would enjoy.

Maze RunnerThe Book:  The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Release Date:  October 2009

Summary:  When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers–boys whose memories are also gone.  Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out–and no one’s ever made it through alive.  Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
