There is a lot of hype on ‘The Maze Runner’ ever since 20th Century Fox bought the rights to adapt the book into a movie. ‘The Maze Runner’ is the first book in the Maze Runner series by James Dashner. If you don’t know much about the book (and movie), here is a brief description:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade — a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up — the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

Good news! Malaysia’s cinema-goers will be amongst the first people in the world to watch the movie. The movie will be released in Malaysia on 11th of September 2014, which is a week ahead of the United States of America. 🙂

ps: Mr Sam (the owner of SS Readers Corner) is in the midst of purchasing ‘The Maze Runner’ series. Once the books are available for rent, I will make a ‘New Arrivals’ announcement. So watch out for that announcement in the near future.
