Holiday Break Reading Challenge - Activity #4

Holiday Break Reading Challenge


Activity #4 has us posting pictures that relate to the book we are currently reading, along with a little description.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner


For the past 2 years, teenage boys have been taken to the Glade and forced to live a life of mystery. The maze is the greatest mystery to them and every night, the huge concrete doors close. If the boys don't make it back inside by the time the doors close, they probably won't make it to morning.

The maze is full of high hedges that shift every night. For the past 2 years, no one has been able to find another way out; only the way back to the Glade.

The Gladers (as they call themselves) each have jobs and the Runners, run through the maze each day in an attempt to find a way out. In order to run constantly, they need good footwear...running shoes.
The Gladers must beware of the Grievers, creepy mechanical/animal looking monsters that sting and kill the Gladers.


This is nothing like how I picture a Griever, but it's the best I could do.

I loved THE MAZE RUNNER. Your pictures are super. Is the first one from promotional photos or something? The colors match the cover so well.

Thanks!! The first one is concept art straight from the book too. I had to include it because it's actually how it's all supposed to look and I wanted everyone to really get a feel for how massive the doors are.
