The Maze Runner is some what "graphic". Not graphic as in bloody and violent but extremely descriptive. Throughout the entire book, you'll have an extremely precise picture of what's happening from start to finish. It's amazing. It's one of many things about the books that makes it hard to put down. The story is about a guy, around 16 years old, who wakes up inside of an elevator that takes him inside these huge walls. There are lots of other guys his age too. Apparently they are all stuck inside a self-changing maze. No one has ever survived the maze on account that there are these monsters and it is almost impossible to find your way back. All that changes when the protagonist rescues a "runner" from the maze for more than a day. That's when the guys takes a serious approach to the maze and try to break out of it.
When you read the story, you'll find that you'll have lots of questions that aren't answered in this particular book. It builds anticipation for book 2. While you're waiting to read the second book, this one will be the most prominent thing you'll be thinking about because of how mysterious the origins of the book are.
