You need to be fed by other people's creativity
I had bonus points from Scholastic and had to use them up since I'm not a teacher anymore. I chose this one, I guess being influenced by the trailer I saw about it, and kind of into Young Adult SciFi, such as Divergent. Not that thrilled about it, but I did read it all the way through. It is a series and I am not hooked. Made me wonder though, about why I didn't like this and I did like Divergent and The Hunger Games. I think it was that the basic conflict is evident and relevant. In Divergent, it is about putting people in categories. In Hunger Games, it is about classism and oppression. Also, yay for female heroes. In Maze Runner, there is abandonment, cruelty and violence, almost for its own sake. I'm sure the idea is maze-like, and if you follow the series, you will work your way through the maze of the plot, and the gist of the story. Don't think I'll be doing that.
