A GREAT 4 BOOK SERIES ABOUT “LIFE AFTER THE FIRE” AND WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF AND WHEN!
The book series is just as good as The Hunger Games and could have been a great movie series, but we’ll have to wait and see on that score! The movie of the first book, The Maze Runner was a LOW BUDGET, dark filmed, attempt at a great movie that left a lot of the book OUT! If I hadn’t read the book first I’m not sure I could have followed the movie. I’ve heard rumors that book two, The Scorch Trials, will be made into a movie too………we’ll wait and see.
To topple The Hunger Games movies, you’d have to have a super leading male or female plus the love interest just as intriguing, but YOU WON’T FIND IT here. The acting is pretty good but the actors are not quite strong enough to carry the film. You won’t see a “Jennifer Lawrence” here!
Having said the above, get and read the books! Then go ahead and give the first movie a go…………………..and decide later if you want to see a 2nd and 3rd movie!
The author, James Dashner is a Georgia boy and has written another series called The 13th Reality Series (I haven’t read that one yet). And a new series about “life in a matrix! (I’ve read the 1st two and the jury is out.)
