Over the last few weeks, we have been reading the books donated by the Book Bank program. We thought we'd give you a review of some of the books.
Here is an example of a quality book review on the Maze Runner.
The whole series of the Maze runner was an amazing and interesting trilogy. I believe it is one of the most original ideas for books I've ever seen. I love how each book ends with a twist or a cliffhanger. I recently read the prequel, and surprisingly the first book has the best story line and keeps your attention and never bores you for a second. In the end you are like. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
I believe the major theme of this book is Global Warming. The book has a disease called the Flare which makes you grow crazy and bellicose. "The Flares must have been devastating ,inflicting catastrophic damage worldwide... Which meant a quick melting of the polar ice caps. Which meant sea levels rising at an alarming and apocalyptic rate."(Dashner 100).The purpose was to - in a hidden way - warn people that if they don't stop their bad habits the world will just self destruct. Global Warming is a huge problem and Dashner showed what would happen to our world in the 2050's. The book had a lot of success. His writing style is very cool and he makes everything so dramatic. That makes a good book.The government would be taken over by rebels and bands. "They say the ones that drop off supplies in Asheville have PFC painted in big letters on the side . Post-Flares Coalition."(Dashner 19). The Post-Flares Coalition is all of the governments in the world teamed up to try to help the world, but turn out to make many wrong decisions in this book.
On a review from http://mackinbooksinbloom.com the person said this book had a touch of romance and heavy on-the-edge-of-your-seat-action. This is very true. It relates to the hunger games also, so if you love the Hunger Games (like i do) you will definitely want to read this series. The author has this awesome ability to just always keep you guessing. I believe that is a key skill in writing.
That is why my 2nd favorite series is now the Maze Runner. I think everyone can connect to this book. The author's beginnigs and endings are unbelievable, especially when in the first book you know nothing to start off. Finally, the best part of the series is the way he peels off a little back story in every chapter.
