Review: The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
In this series, James Dashner pens an intense, suspenseful masterpiece that left me amazed. Reading his trilogy was an enthralling and unforgettable rollercoaster ride, an epic journey like no other work I’ve read before.
Dashner’s underground world is an original dystopia, and his fastpaced adventure takes your breath away. You become attached to his masterfully constructed characters, loathing some while adoring others. As I read the series, I realized how skillful the author is at creating cliffhanger moments at the end of each chapter, forcing the reader to continue on to the surprise ending. I also loved how Dashner deals with many fundamental themes, such as life, friendship and the battle between good and evil.
I had the time of my life reading the Maze Runner trilogy, getting to know the characters better and seeing them evolve from one book to the next, especially the Gladers and WICKED. One final comment: WICKED is good.
