I didn't like this book. I thought the idea and concept was AWESOME. I thought the author's creativity and enthusiasm shine. You can tell this author is really into his writing.... like.....in his mind. I just wish that translated onto the pages for me. I felt like it lacked something. How many times can he say that Thomas is drawn to the maze and can't remember anything? I WANTED to connect with the characters, I really did. But I wasn't sad when any one of them died. Not. At. All.
That being said, the idea is genius. It's worthy of a series and after I finish the other book I've got I'll be trying out round 2 (which is why I skipped that spoiler above). And now that Markie tells us it's success was due to HG?!!!!! Say no more.
