Description

Thomas wakes up to find himself in a lift; other than his name, he can't remember anything. The lift doors open, and Thomas finds himself in the Glade surrounded by boys who, like him, have no memories. And every 30 days, a new boy appears in the Glade. It's common knowledge among the Gladers that the doors to the maze surrounding the glade open every morning and shut every night-and no one seems to want to be caught in the maze at night. But they're compelled to solve the maze, convinced that's the answer to getting home. One day, a girl appears in the glade-the first one ever-bearing a surprising message. And Thomas is starting to suspect that somewhere in his mind are the answers to all this.

Professional reviews

"The first of a projected sci-fi trilogy introduces listeners to a teenage boy who has been dropped into a mysterious "glade"--a walled-in field surrounded by a treacherous maze--with no memory of his life before his arrival. Actor Mark Deakins gives a compellingly subdued reading of this unsettling blend of LORD OF THE FLIES, ENDER'S GAME, and television's LOST. Deakins projects a real sense of uncertainty as he tells the story of Thomas, a boy who yearns to solve the mystery of the maze and find his way back to a home he can't remember. Deakins helps the listener navigate the maze of new terms, a slang invented by Dashner for the story. The result is an adventure that is thrilling and irresistible. S.E.S.
