The Maze Runner 1

Book One

Maze Runner Band 1

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!

  • Chapter 1
    He began his new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale, dusty air.
    Metal ground against metal; a lurching shudder shook the floor beneath him. He fell down at the sudden movement and shuffled backward on his hands and feet, drops of sweat beading on his forehead despite the cool air. His back struck a hard metal wall; he slid along it until he hit the corner of the room. Sinking to the floor, he pulled his legs up tight against his body, hoping his eyes would soon adjust to the darkness.
    With another jolt, the room jerked upward like an old lift in a mine shaft.
    Harsh sounds of chains and pulleys, like the workings of an ancient steel factory, echoed through the room, bouncing off the walls with a hollow, tinny whine. The lightless elevator swayed back and forth as it ascended, turning the boy's stomach sour with nausea; a smell like burnt oil invaded his senses, making him feel worse. He wanted to cry, but no tears came; he could only sit there, alone, waiting.
    My name is Thomas, he thought.
    That... that was the only thing he could remember about his life.
    He didn't understand how this could be possible. His mind functioned without flaw, trying to calculate his surroundings and predicament. Knowledge flooded his thoughts, facts and images, memories and details of the world and how it works. He pictured snow on trees, running down a leaf-strewn road, eating a hamburger, the moon casting a pale glow on a grassy meadow, swimming in a lake, a busy city square with hundreds of people bustling about their business.
    And yet he didn't know where he came from, or how he'd gotten inside the dark lift, or who his parents were. He didn't even know his last name. Images of people flashed across his mind, but there was no recognition, their faces replaced with haunted smears of color. He couldn't think of one person he knew, or recall a single conversation.
    The room continued its ascent, swaying; Thomas grew immune to the ceaseless rattling of the chains that pulled him upward. A long time passed. Minutes stretched into hours, although it was impossible to know for sure because every second seemed an eternity. No. He was smarter than that. Trusting his instincts, he knew he'd been moving for roughly half an hour.
    Strangely enough, he felt his fear whisked away like a swarm of gnats caught in the wind, replaced by an intense curiosity. He wanted to know where he was and what was happening.
    With a groan and then a clonk, the rising room halted; the sudden change jolted Thomas from his huddled position and threw him across the hard floor. As he scrambled to his feet, he felt the room sway less and less until it finally stilled. Everything fell silent.
    A minute passed. Two. He looked in every direction but saw only darkness; he felt along the walls again, searching for a way out. But there was nothing, only the cool metal. He groaned in frustration; his echo amplified through the air, like the haunted moan of death. It faded, and silence returned. He screamed, called for help, pounded on the walls with his fists.
    Nothing.
    Thomas backed into the corner once again, folded his arms and shivered, and the fear returned. He felt a worrying shudder in his chest, as if his heart wanted to escape, to flee his body.
    "Someone... help... me!" he screamed; each word ripped his throat raw.
    A loud clank rang out above him and he sucked in a startled breath as he looked up. A straight line of light appeared across the ceiling of the room, and Thomas watched as it expanded. A heavy grating sound revealed double sliding doors being forced open. After so long in darkness, the light stabbed his eyes; he looked away, covering his face with both hands.
    He heard noises above--voices--and fear squeezed his chest.
    "Look at that shank."
    "How old is he?"
    "Looks like a kl

Beware of "The Maze Runner", it's extremely gripping and addictive!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 29.03.2015

Imagine waking up in a cold, metal lift, nothing but darkness surrounding you, and the worst part: you don't know how you got there. And better yet: you don't remember anything but your name. Wouldn't you be scared to death? That's exactly what Thomas feels like when he finds himself in that situation. But things don't get bette... Imagine waking up in a cold, metal lift, nothing but darkness surrounding you, and the worst part: you don't know how you got there. And better yet: you don't remember anything but your name. Wouldn't you be scared to death? That's exactly what Thomas feels like when he finds himself in that situation. But things don't get better when the doors of the lift finally open and he finds out he's trapped inside a huge maze. However, he's not the only one. About fifty other boys of different age, race and personality have been sent to this strange place too, and they don't know the reason for why they were put there either. The only difference between Thomas and the rest of the boys is that he's not willing to accept this "new life", he's determined to escape the labyrinth. Getting out won't be easy, he knows that, considering the deadly half-machine, half-animal creatures called "Grievers" are programmed to attack and kill humans. But staying isn't an option either, so Thomas goes down a road of no return. Personally, I find the idea of this whole book series very extraordinary. James Dashner created a whole new world (literally) and keeps the reader riveted by Thomas' adventures inside the maze. Dashner describes what the main character is thinking and feeling precisely enough to make you go through the same inner turmoil that he's in, but doesn't exaggerate, which is what keeps the story thrilling and gripping. The end of Book 1 leaves you breathless and excited to read what's going to happen next, because this is by far not the end of the story. Fortunately there are 3 more books you can sink your teeth into, and there's also a DVD and Blu-Ray available, so you can watch the motion picture based on the first novel over and over.

Wir haben es hier mit einem Jugendbuch zu tun, das – ähnlich wie „Die Tribute von Panem“ – eine Welt zeigt, die nichts beschönigt und eine grauenhafte Realität nicht nur auf die Figuren sondern auch auf den Leser loslässt. Das Augenmerk wird vor allen Dingen auf die Gefühle und Psyche der Figuren gelegt, was ihre Handlungsweise für den Leser leichter nachvollziehbar macht. Die Beschreibungen der Umgebung und der einzelnen Charaktere waren sehr bildlich und ich konnte mir die Szenerie eigentlich gut vorstellen – abgesehen von den „Griefern“, bei denen ich mir auch heute noch nicht ganz im Klaren darüber bin, wie sie genau aussehen. Vielleicht habe ich dafür nicht genug Fantasie. Alles in allem fand ich das Buch sehr spannend und ansprechend, mit einem guten Plot, interessanten Figuren, tollen Beschreibungen und einem Ende, das einem Lust auf mehr macht. Wie gut, dass es eine Fortsetzung gibt.

Sehr spannend
