The Maze Runner - James Dashner

I knocked this one down this morning, finally! I got a little teary there at the end, but all in all, it wasn't that great of a book. (They got me when Chuck died, ugh--why do the good ones always die?!) 


I'm really looking forward to the movie, because it was mostly the juvenile and tell-don't-show writing that bothered me with this one. And I'm also starting to get sick of books that only just scratch the surface of the plot in the first book and make me wonder why the heck I just wasted my time reading about something that seems completely irrelevant. Two stars.
