Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Everything is going to change.

Dear The Maze Runner by James Dashner,
I wanted to love you so very much. I really really did. You seemed to perfect for me. YA which is all I ever love. Dystopia which is a favourite genre of mine and so many friends who adored you. You even have a blockbuster movie based on you which I loved. Maybe it's my fault. Maybe I should have read your pages before watching the movie that is based on you. But I didn't. I watched the movie first and loved it. Maybe that's why I went into reading you with such high expectations that you didn't seem to reach. I'm sorry.
Just so you know I do believe your author is amazing. James did a wonderful job in writing you. The writing style in which he used was great and made me relate to your characters so well so he is clearly a very talented author. And your story is undoubtedly wonderful. I loved it translated to the big screen and I can't wait to watch the movie based from your sequel, The Scorch Trials. And really I gave you a chance. This is they third time I have picked you up to read you and the third time I have had to put you down. You are undoubtedly wonderful but you are just a little but too slow getting to the plot for me. I'm not a patient person and I have decided that you and I are just not meant to be. Please forgive me. I will watch your movies.
