The Maze Runner: Thoughts pre-review 2
One of the problems I am having is that the story is just there. There were some points where I started to get sucked in (first trip into the maze) and then it gets stalemated by unnecessary and unexplained drama (Gally's dramatic temper tantrum about hating Thomas for no explained reason and then disappearing).
I get very tired of wondering around in a blank mind. The teasers of memories that he dwells on is a bit exhausting. Especially because none of it really seems to be going anywhere. I get the very distinct feeling that this book is going to end in a HUGE cliff hanger leaving us not much further along beyond character introduction.
I hope the movie goes faster than the book.
