Had a very hard time putting this down. I was confused, enthralled, horrified and emotional. The prospect of the apocalyptic events that occurred in this book are scary to say the least, but I was drawn in with every word. I can't wait to get started on The Maze Runner. ( )

In this Prequel to The Maze Runner, we follow Mark, Trina, Alec, and Lana on their struggle of survival. Most of the world has been destroyed by solar flares which has turned most people against themselves. On top of destructive civilizations, there is a mysterious government, the PFC (Post-Flares Coalition) which is killing people by shooting them with an unknown virus. The group sets out to find the PFC secret headquarters in order to find answers and motives. On their journey, they meet a 5-year-old girl, DeeDee, who is immune to the virus. After some near death situations and dealing with virus-stricken, crazed, violent, people, they learn information about the PFC objectives and how DeeDee can help the future of the world.

This book has a lot of action situations but is violent. There are several death scenes and gory descriptions of crazy virus-stricken people. I would recommend this book for a high schooler or a mature reader. –C.C.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385742886, Hardcover)

A Letter from James Dashner: Top Ten Things I’d Want During the Apocalypse
10. Very, very strong sunglasses.

9. Lots of plastic to wrap around my house.

8. A stranger taken in who happens to be the smartest, ablest doctor in a thousand years.

7. A server containing every show that’s ever been on HBO and a nice entertainment system on which to watch it all.

6. An e-reader loaded with 5,000 books.

5. A generator and a gas refinery next door to provide fuel so I can watch all those shows and charge my e-reader.

4. Deodorant that smells like a rotting dead body so zombies think I’m just one of them.

3. Lifetime supplies in my basement of the following: hot dogs, Almond Joys, potato chips, and Mountain Dew.

2. A cloaking device to hide my house from the tyrannical, evil, bloodthirsty government that will inevitably spring up.

1. Oh, and my wife and kids.
