Patron Book Reviews

There are about 375 pages of this tantalizing,unforgettable book. It deals with live without memories itself. Yet humans are pitted against an almost inescapable maze, monsters, and worst of all themselves.This book showcases life living in despair yet with a tinge of hope that when opened from ones' grasp seems to showcase even more misery pitted against human resolve for survival.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
The Maze Runner
James Dashner
This book follows Hermione Winters the captain of a successful cheer leading squad in a decent sized town. She gets good grades and has a boyfriend. Unfortunately she gets drugged and raped at cheer camp. After the event her best friend is there for here and gives her support. What I didn't like bout this book was Hermione. Now I know what you're thinking but there is such a lack of character development it was hard to stay interested. Not to mention one minute she'd say it's fine since I don't remember what happened and having a panic attack because she heard a song from cheer camp. Hermione was expecting things to shift and change in her world but after a few weeks everything went back to normal for the people around her. I would not recommend this book because the plot falls flat and it's fairly predictable.   Library's SWAN Online Catalog
