Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend I thought the idea of the book was intriguing. I am glad I read the books before seeing the movies. Not that they movies weren't as good, but I liked the details they put into the book series. I recommend for Dystopian fans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down At first when my sister recommended this series to me, I was unsure. But as soon as I picked up the first book I was hooked. I also really enjoyed Dashner's writing style and the overall plot to the books. If you like dystopian fiction, you'll definitely enjoy the Maze Runner series. I would say that this series is definitely gender neutral, so whether you're contemplating buying the series as a gift for someone, it doesn't matter who they are - they will be sure to love the series. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great books! The first book was my favourite because there was so much going on and you were learning so much about the characters. Just started to read the newest book The Fever Code and am super excited to get in to this novel. I was hoping he would write a book from this perspective from the beginning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good Good series but in the second book some parts were long and it takes some time to understand where we are going. Different and very entertaning. The one book however that was a let down is the one that explains the before. I was expecting more and to understand more how the project came to be and so on and it still left me thinking. Enjoy the series

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay it took me forever to begin reading the first book because no matter how many times i tried i did not understand what was going on. i eventually watched the movie and then after understanding what was happening i could finally start to read them. I would recommend to people who like surprises and the unknowing but other than that it was a hard series to read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love these books ! I loved the majority of the characters, and they all exceptional and differentiate views between things that were going on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from For once, the movies are better than the books. I bought this series after watching the first Maze Runner movie, which I thought was phenomenal. The first book itself is decent. I liked the authors writing style and overall the concept is interesting. The second book starts to bring the series really down hill. The book is so drastically different from the movie the only thing they have in common is the title. Book three was awful and overall disappointing. I did enjoy the characters and the writing, and thought the plot was intriguing but it was not executed well. They are easy books and I flew through them, but honestly if I hadn't enjoyed the movie I wouldn't have had any interest in these books. I didn't end up reading the Kill Order and do not plan on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME SERIES!!! DONT WATCH THE MOVIES These books were captivating from start to finished. The suspense, the setting and not knowing what the hell was going on to them was what pulled me in. DO NOT WATCH THE MOVIES at all as they just ruined everything about these books ( good casting thu ).Its been a year since I read them and I still refuse to believe my favorite character tragically died at the end. I think his death was unnecessary but I guess it's what's made the series unforgettable and heartbreaking. I finished the 3rd book at 5 am crying and sobbing my heart out in total darkness of my room. Totally recommend and I repeat do not watch the movies :) :) :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most amazing series ever!! I read the books way before the movie came out, and I was in love with them. When the movie came out, I was super excited since I watch Teen Wolf and Dylan O'brien is one of my favorite actors. I love the books even more now and I have no idea how many times I've read the books. I just can't put them down! And Thomas and Minho are probably my favorite characters!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A final let-down Bought this for my 11-year-old son. The first book was finished in one day. It was that good. The second one took a little longer, but the 3rd one picked up again. My son enjoyed Book 1 and 3 very much, but thought Book 2 was just okay. Book 4 was a let-down, and it took him weeks, with constant nagging from me, to finish it.
