The Maze Runner by James Dashner was a thrilling and enticing read, especially readers who are interested in dystopian science fiction novels. The 62 chapter book and epilogue brings a sense of bravery and friendship to the reader’s mind that may be difficult to find in other aspects of life or books/stories. Furthermore, the movie was incredibly different from the book and seemed less thought through. In the book, James Dashner used many details to describe everything in the Maze and the Maze itself, which most of were not included in the movie. Consequently, this story is aimed towards (male) teenagers, though will be worthwhile if readers take the time to read the book in place of only watching the movie.
One of the key differences noticed in the movie was when the girl character was being introduced (Teresa). The book used a fair amount of details to describe how the author wanted her to arrive. Dashner’s characterization of Teresa gave the reader the impression of being horrified of where she was and what she saw. The reader, emotionally connects and feels empathy towards her and wonders for her, why she was forced to come to the Maze with the 50-60 other boys. The book made it easier to develop a relationship between the characters and provided greater detail abroad, which helps readers better understand characters feelings and develop their own towards the book. The movie had multiple differences from the book, which even though some scenes were more accurate than others.
Another dissimilarity is near the end of the book. The ending in the movie was completely different in distinction to the book. One of the main characters, Chuck, dies by a bullet alternatively from the dagger. James Dashner used the death by a dagger to bring more specification and detail, while tying up the remnants of the culmination to the story. The movie would have felt like the writer of the script put more effort into the story, if it had showed greater detail with Chuck during his last scene. Chuck’s death was a major part of the story, especially for Thomas. The movie might have had a higher chance at superiority if writers and producers had done the end differently. Higher reviews towards the movie would most likely have happened if the movie was as near as detailed as the book. Although the movie was not as alike as many would have wanted, it was not necessarily terrible, only extremely different.
As the movie did have many differences against the book, the movie itself was not all terrible. A few of the scenes did provide a somewhat correlation towards the book and it was neat to see them acted out together. If the producers of the movie put more effort into making the movie as the book writer intended, the reviews would have been somewhat more positive. The Maze Runner film did not have as great of an impact on society as the book did, though many would agree on one thing. It was enjoying to perceive the connection they created in their minds with the characters in a different point of view. The movie deserves the negative ratings it received, and along does the book with outstanding reviews (paragraph 1-7,‘The Maze Runner’ by a James Dashner review, The Guardian).
This book grasped by mainly males of the ages 13-17, was a fantastic read, though the movie was more of a burden to sit through. A breathtaking story to bring tears to your eyes by surprise, and disappointment from lack of detail in the movie. Readers who are looking for a new book series to begin, The Maze Runner is recommended. It was truly astonishing to see how much effort a group could lack designing a movie. Many emotions, thoughts and conspiracies will be brought to mind throughout the book, for somebody who decided to read it next, which happens hopefully over watching the movie.
