4 days to go until The Maze Runner...

The Maze Runner Film is releasing at the end of this week on 10th October

I am particularly excited to see how the film has been adapted and see the lovely Will Poulter on screen (I met him very briefly last year at an anti-bullying event and he is lovely)

When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But
he’s not alone. He’s surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade – a walled encampment
at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why
or how they came to be there – or what’s happened to the world outside. All they know is that
every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything to try and find out.

The Maze Runner out now in paperback (£7.99, Chicken House)

I read The Maze Runner back in 2010. You are dropped into a world where you do not know what is happening or why it is happening and I found it very confusing as a reader to start with but suddenly things start to click into place and I'm interested to see how this is done in the film.

I did like the idea behind the story and I liked how the boys interacted with each other, complete with their abrupt manners and own cursewords (reminding me of a variety of children I have taught over the years) and there were a few creepy moments with the grievers.
In the last section and everything that happened it was fast paced and interesting and I think the series as a whole could be very good based on all the ideas thrown about.

I am very excited to be able to offer a signed copy of The Maze Runner for one of my readers. If you want to enter simply leave a comment in the box below with a twitter handle or an email address to contact you on and I'll pick a winner at random later on in the week.
