Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
I quite enjoyed the characters in this novel. Although readers get to know a definite ‘main character’ there is a group of individuals who are indispensible to the story’s forward movement. Dashner develops each in such a manner that you can easily see what they contribute to the society as well as how they feel about that.
As a whole this is a novel that will be enjoyed by teens and adults alike. It’s a shocking look at what could happen.
