Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
October 2009

Book one in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
   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 them 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: Remember. Survive. Run.

The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure all are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster.
Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

the narrator is absolutely terrible. sounds like a robot with muted inflection.

The first 100 pages I felt like I was dragging myself through because the author was basically asking the same questions as the reader had for a majority of it. That said, it picked up and I became engrossed with the series.

Ok, if you want a distopian YA book, then this is the one. It's set in a futuristic wasteland, but this book is in a maze. THIS BOOKS IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

I could not stop listening! Between the excellent narration and the constant action of the story I would drive longer routes just to listen longer! It was a great book and I am now listening to the second book.
