The Maze Runner is one of those books I know about because it's popular, but don't really plan to read. Until last year, when I heard that it's going to be a movie and Dylan O'Brien will play the main character. That's all I really know about the movie but it was enough to make me include the book in my TBR pile. And then a couple of weeks ago 20th Century Fox released the official movie trailer and everyone is buzzing about it.
And yes, the trailer is so freaking awesome! I can't compare it to the book since I haven't read it yet but I know Dylan is going to be perfect. I absolutely love the guy. He can play any role and own it. Remember when I said I don't know anything about the movie except the lead being played by Dylan? Yeah, well, while I was watching the trailer I was like.. "Oooh, here comes Thomas." and then, "Wait, isn't that the guy from Narnia?", and then, "Wait, wait. I know this guy!" referring to Thomas Sangster who I was totally crushing on during my Nanny McPhee days and then the girl comes out and I'm like.. "KAYA?!"
Wasn't that a pleasant surprise? I adore the actors and actress playing the four main characters. I am definitely watching the movie.
"If you ain't scared, you ain't human."
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.
