When Thomas arrived at this mysterious place, all the boys tutoyered him even though Thomas did not recall ever meeting any of them (48).
To add on, instead of formally saying hello to Thomas, the boys addressed him by using nicknames and casually as if the boys and Thomas knew each other their whole lives (48).
In the past, the mysterious place only gets one new boy each month, but what just happened has never occurred before. A girl arrived the day after Thomas came. This is very surprising to everyone (54).
A note came with the new girl that said she was the last one ever. I assume this means that nobody will escape this isolated place unless the maze is decoded. Since, the runners who have been there for a long time have already tried to find the end of the maze, new eyes are needed. This may be wear Thomas comes in and becomes a Runner (57).
Ever since Thomas saw the Runners (people who run through the maze trying to figure it out) he has felt an urge to be one. After he was shown a deadly and frightening creature that lives in the maze, he still wanted to be a runner (58).
I think there is some sort of connection between Thomas and the girl who just arrived because of the peculiar timing they could have had a past connection that Thomas does not remember because of his memory loss. If not, I think a connection will form because they will be in the same position of knowing less than all the other people that surround them (72).
I think the fact that Thomas is so intrigued by the Grievers, the dangerous creatures, will get him either hurt or in trouble because he will want to find out more about them and he could get too close (85).
The mysterious place where all of these boys have ended up may symbolize a jail in the sense that they are locked in, so all of them may have done something bad previously and their punishment is to be isolated from the rest of the world (89).
Minoh is not intimidated of Gally as Thomas is. Minoh stands up for himself and others and fights off Gally. Although this requires courage, it is quite dangerous because Gally threatens Minoh and he is not afraid to follow through with his threats (161).
Minho not Minoh
The boys' did not confide in Thomas because they were not answering the many questions Thomas had about the place since Thomas was a new comer. They kept everything very secretive (164).
Although this book is in third person, it is based around Thomas because you only get a sense of how he is feeling and viewing others. You get a feel of what the other characters are doing, but mostly the third person writing is focused on Thomas (174).
Thomas is confused because he is not getting any answers to all his questions about the girl and is unsure of what people who are going through the changing keep telling him. Since the reader also does not know what is really happening, partly because the main character is confused, this is one part of the book where the author uses ambiguity to make you guess what is happening and what is going to happen in order to create multiple interpretations of how the girl is connected to Thomas(181).
The author creates new words for the people to say in the mysterious place Thomas ended up. This makes it unclear of what the boys are trying to say, but also shows the contrast between the real world and this random place where Thomas and many others landed. Ambiguity is used here so readers can try to make sense of the new words on their own and why they are used. I think the words were made up from the boys because they do not remember real words from some things because of their memory loss (187).
Everything seems so calm while Thomas is in the Slammer. This makes me suspicious of what is happening with the other boys because it seems like nothing is ever right at this mysterious place (192).
The mood of the book at this point is dreary and makes you feel bad for all the kids who ended up locked inside this maze, especially Chuck. The author used descriptive language that makes you feel not only sad, but also mad and upset while reading this part of the book where Thomas is talking to himself about how Chuck deserves a better life. While Thomas' anger is building up, the author makes you feel even more glum (194).
I think this mysterious island symbolizes the lives of everyone and the previous lives of the boys. The maze represents that life changes everyday because the maze becomes different each day. Also, the maze represents life because you can not escape it. The grievers symbolize obstacles that you have to get past each and every day (203).
Gally is a flat character while Thomas is a round one. Gally has not liked Thomas from Day One and he is always against Thomas. However, Thomas is round because he puts himself in situations that makes him encounter conflict and allows him to develop. Gally brings out the traits in Thomas because Gally just makes Thomas even more courageous because what Gally says about Thomas is false and foolish (221).
It was actually on page 211.
Something odd is happening with Thomas and Teresa. Teresa is talking to Thomas but not for real. Thomas has just been hearing Teresa's voice in his mind so maybe there is some sort of special connection between the two of them. I think that they did something together before this place with the maze was created and when Thomas finds out he may be ashamed of himself (217).
Thomas is not telling anybody anything about Teresa talking to him because it may get people suspicious that he is a bad person and he does not want to be in even more trouble with people like Gally who already not his biggest fan (221).
Despite not wanting to get in trouble, I think Thomas should tell someone what Teresa has been telling him so the boys can get prepared for the chaos that will most likely be in their near future (221).
Gally has a deep-seated aversion to Thomas because of all the chaos Thomas caused and has given multiple lucid explanations which made it more clear that he was against Thomas (301).
Thomas lamented over Chuck's death because he could not follow through his promise to Chuck and Chuck was like a brother to Thomas (356).
I think that there is a connection between the girl and Thomas. I think this because when the girl came Thomas had some sort of relationship with her, but since he lost his memory he can't remember
When the girl came she came with a note. The note said that she is the last one. I think that means nobody is going to ever leave this maze
In this maze they send one new boy every month. But one random month they sent a girl and all the boy's are confused why
"...some reached out and poked him with a finger" (5). Maybe they have never seen a human like him, or any human at all. They are probably confused.
"Get up, shank, get up!" (10) Shank probably means newbie, or amateur. Thomas is new to the glades, so that is why I think shank is a mean word for newbie.
"what did I do- why did they send me here?" (11). Maybe his parents sent here, or he was training for it and he just doesn't remember. I have a question also- what did he do to be sent here? Is it an honor, or a consequence?
"… when a sudden, piercing scream ripped through the air." (11) This may be a noise from inside the maze, or possibly it could be the maze opening.
" ' It wasn't me, I swear,' he said'"(32). Thomas will probably get in trouble, even though it was actually Chuck who scared Gally. Thomas probably doesn't have the heart to tell Gally that Chuck did it, because Chuck is a little boy, and he is Thomas' only friend. Thomas probably doesn't want to ruin their friendship, and he doesn't want to tattle on Chuck.
" 'or I'll throw you down the hole after the Box leaves' " (50). Thomas should be nicer to Chuck because Chuck is the only one accepting Thomas into the glades and becoming his friend.
Thomas is being too mean to Chuck. Chuck had confidence that Thomas could successfully go up against Gally, then Thomas just yelled at him. Thomas is probably scared and just doesn't want to admit it, so he is taking it out on Chuck.
" 'It's a girl' he said" (54). Maybe the people of the glades have never seen a girl before, let alone 2 newbies in the same week. I wonder why this is happening. Is it Thomas' fault? Or, is it just a surprise?
"she did seem familiar"(59). Since the girl is one of the only things Thomas remembers, she was probably really important before they both came to the glades. Maybe she is the one that sent him to the glades, or maybe they are related. They could have even been dating before they both came to the glades. But why is she the only person Thomas sort of remembers??
“‘If you ain’t scared,’ Alby said, ’you ain’t human.’” (9)
Thomas just went into another dimension. His brain was wiped of all his memories and he is scared to death. Now he is talking to a leader and the leader tells him that if he wasn’t scared then there would be something really wrong with him. The point is that any human that is dropped in an unfamiliar place, with unfamiliar people, and no memories would be really nervous. Thomas as scared as he is, next finds out that it doesn’t get better, but it only worse. I feel horrible for Thomas.
“Thomas knew he was a smart kid-he somehow felt it in his bones. But nothing about this place made any sense. Except for one thing. He was supposed to be a Runner.” (40)
After Thomas learns what is in the maze, no one could imagine why he would want to go out there everyday. Yet, Thomas seems very confident in himself that he must be a Runner. He doesn’t understand why though. He knows the danger of the maze, but he doesn’t let it stop his determination. Deep down he knows he has to be a Runner. It is the only possible way out.
“Chuck seemed deep in thought. ‘Well, they found a dead Griever, right?’ ‘Yeah,’ Newt replied. ‘Thanks for that bit of news.’ Chuck absently tapped his fork against the table for a few seconds. ‘Well, then who killed the stupid thing?’ Excellent question, Thomas thought. He waited for Newt to answer, but nothing came. He obviously didn’t have a clue.”(103)
It is indeed an excellent question. I realized that considering Chuck was probably only around 12 years old, he was very intelligent. Chuck is probably one of the youngest kids in the glade and no one thought to ask that question. Now that no one knows how the Griever was killed, people might have some second thoughts about it. For all they know the Griever isn’t even dead and if it is dead, they will want to know how it died. They will have to do more investigating to find out.
On page 84, the author writes, " 'He's fine,' Alby replied. 'I don't care what this shank hears. Just talk!' ". The people at the glade are starting to trust Thomas now. Maybe, it is because he is being nice to Minho even though Minho is kind of teasing him. I don't understand why they are still calling him Newbie and Greenie if he is not the newest member anymore. They might be trying to be mean to him or get something out of him. Maybe they want him ton admit that he knows the new girl.
"Thomas was fascinated at the mention of a Griever" (85). This is probably why he wants to become a runner, along with the fact that he wants to find a way out of the maze.
They people of the glades shouldn't banish other citizens. They need support from each other to survive in the glades, and one less person means one less provider of support. I also think this is a really harsh punishment. Since they have a jail, Alby should have just left Ben there for a really long time until he learned his lesson.
" The walls slammed shut behind him, the echo of its boom bouncing off the ivy-covered stone like mad laughter "(112). Thomas shouldn't have gone into the maze, because it is almost night time and the Grievers are out. Also, he pretty much just got to the Glades, and he has no expierience.
"The noises grew louder" (119). The noises that Thomas is hearing in the maze are probably the Grievers, because it is night time and he is still in the maze.
"But it was too much. Thomas collapsed forward onto his face; ably sprawled to the side with a loud flump" (120). Thomas may have to abandon Alby. he wouldn't be able to run away from the Grievers with Alby on his back, because he would be staggering to much and he wouldn't be able to move fast enough. He may even fall and it would be easier for the Grievers to catch him.
"Minho seemed to sense his thoughts. 'Don't get excited,' he said, barely able to get the words out"(136). Maybe they have to get past something else that is worse towards the end.
My favorite part of The Maze Runner is, the plot. Many story lines are not unique and somewhat copy other books. Thomas wakes up in a small metal box with nothing. Not even his memory. He survives by being bold and brave but one day he takes it too far. Every night the glade opens up and if you go outside the glade into the maze, there is a good chance you won't come back.
“There it was again- the smallest glimpse at his past. He could remember movies, but not the actors’ faces or with whom he watched them. He could remember theaters, but not what any specific one looked like. It was impossible to explain how that felt, even to himself.” (170)
I feel really bad for Thomas. He came into a “new world” where he doesn’t know where he is or anyone else. On top of that his memory is wiped out. Now he is starting to get little glimpses of memories but he can’t hold on to them. It is as if someone is taunting him with his memories. It must be frightening.
“‘Everything’s . . . gonna change. . . .’” (170)
There were many people who said this quote. First Gally said it, then Ben said it too, and now Alby says it. All of them have gone through the changing and now they are saying that everything is going to change. They have some memories and remember seeing Thomas and Teresa working at some factory. Soon everyone realizes that the people who went through the changing are right. Everything is going to change.
“‘Protect the maps.’”(175)
Alby just went through the changing. He has some of his memories back. His last words to Thomas before he falls back asleep are to protect the maps. Now, Thomas and Newt are starting to think something bad is going to happen to the maps. At least they now have a warning and will hopefully use it to their advantage.
"That's kind of insulting, dude. Seriously" (208). Mihno is mad that Thomas underestimated their abilities. Maybe to Mihno he seems kind of like a know it all.
"The sky did look like a ceiling. Like the ceiling of a massive room"(219). Maybe it looks like a gray sky without a sun because the glades is a survival simulation, and it's not real. Maybe the creators broke something so the sky is kind of like a glitch. Or maybe they closed the gliders out by putting a ceiling so there were less ways for the people to find a way out of the maze.
"…Teresa's words inside his mind. She'd said, 'I just triggered the ending'"(220). Maybe Teresa saying this is Thomas' mind has something to do with the sun-less sky. BY triggering the ending, I think she means end of the simulation, so that's why it looks like the glades are enclosed by a gray ceiling.
"The creature disappeared from sight, a shadow swallowed by more shadow"(223). I think that the creators are bringing the Grievers back to the real world through the gray ceiling, and they are shutting down the simulation.
"Thomas didn't want to see her. He didn't want to see anybody"(233). I think that Thomas should go see Teresa, because she said, "The maze is a code, Tom. The maze is a code"(232) inside his head. She may know how to get out of the maze, and Thomas is the only one she will tell. She probably trusts him more than anyone else because they knew each other before the simulation.
“‘Ever seen that happen before?’ Thomas asked after a minute or so. Newt looked at him, his face suddenly somber. ‘What Alby just did? No. Never. But then again, no one’s ever tried to tell us what they remembered during the Changing. They always refuse.’” (177) I think that once someone is stung by a Griever the creators can control them. Also, I think the creators don’t want the memories given back by the Grievers to be spread to anyone but the person stung. Once Alby was stung, he tried to tell Thomas and Newt, but then he started to strangle himself and he couldn’t control it. The serum from the Griever must have still been in him and the Creators didn’t want Alby to spread the memories.
“‘Teresa.’............. ‘Thomas’............ ‘Tom, we’re the last ones. It’ll end soon. It has to.’............ ‘Tom, don’t freak out on me.’................’My memory is fading already, Tom. I won’t remember much when I wake up. We can pass the Trials. It has to end. They sent me as a trigger.’.........’Everything is going to change,’...............’It was you and me, Tom. We did this to them. To us.’” (183-184) The new girl, who the readers just learned is Teresa, is somehow talking to Thomas in her mind. I think her and Thomas have known each other before entering the maze. They can somehow speak telepathically, or at least she can. Thomas doesn’t understand what is going on though. He just hears a girl’s voice in his head.
“Thomas’s mind was churning, trying to get somewhere, only he didn’t know where or which direction to even start in. ‘I just wonder where it went. Where they always go. Don’t you?’. . . As Thomas followed, he struggled to figure out what was tickling the back of his mind. Something about that Griever being dead and then not dead, something about where it had gone once it sprang to life. . .” (213) Thomas is starting to have somewhat of a memory back, even if it is not a full one. This memory is hinting to him that something about where the Grievers go might be important. Hopefully, he is intelligent enough to follow the Griever and find out where it goes.
Alby pointed at the girl. "I want her locked up. Now"(240). They shouldn't lock Teresa up because it's not her fault that she is there. The creators sent her there.
"…I think I need to let you guys make the decisions"(250). Maybe Alby doesn't trust himself in directing the gliders because he should've found a way out by now since he was the first to the glades.
"All you could hear were quiet shuffles and whispers"(252). They are probably staying awake because they don't want to get attacked buy the grievers.
" 'Only a couple of us know about it' "(272). Why is he showing this to Thomas when he hasn't been here for that long? Maybe it's because he is able to survive well in the maze as a runner.
So far I only read about six pages and I already love it.But since I'm only I don't understand what the first part is about but as I read I have a feeling something surprising will happen.I hope all of the book in the series are as stimulating as this one.
I'm starting to understand this book!I was really surprised when he didn't know some of the words that seemed obvious to them.Even I didn't know them!
"CATCH. FLOAT and CATCH"(278). Maybe this is showing a way to get out.
"Running the Maze seemed like such a waste of time compared to figuring out the code"(279). I agree with Thomas because I think they should figure out how to get past the MAze before they run it.
"WICKED is good"(284). Maybe this code is telling them what to do, or what the pattern of the Maze is.
" 'Let's just go home, ' Minho said, his voice weary."(286). Maybe they are lsoing hope that they will be able to find a way out. I think the Gladers will be disappointed in them that they didn't keep going.
"FLOAT CATCH BLEED DEATH STIFF PUSH"(290). Mayabe this is the order in which the Gladers will escape.
Wow!This book really is great!I Recommend this book to everyone!!
“He caught a flash of something silver and red, something he’d seen more than once that day.” (213)
I believe that Thomas just saw another beetle blade. Normally it wouldn’t mean anything, but he says he saw it more than once that day. I know that the Creators are watching the Glade through the beetle blades, but I think that there might be a beetle blade actually following him and Minho. There is obviously something special about Thomas and I think the Creators might want to watch him to observe what he does and how he thinks.
“WORLD IN CATASTROPHE: KILLZONE EXPERIMENT DEPARTMENT” (214)
I think this might be important. Minho doesn’t think it is because he passes them everyday, but I disagree. I don’t know what it means exactly, but I figured out that the initials of it are WICKED. That is also what is written on all of the beetle blades’ back. I think it might have to do with the Creators.
“Thomas’ first instinct was to ignore her, to deny once again that someone had the ability to enter his mind, to invade his privacy. But he wanted to talk to her. Can you hear me? he asked, picturing the words in his mind, mentally throwing them out to her in some way he could never have explained. Concentrating, he said it again. Can you hear me? Yes! she replied. Really clearly the second time you said it” (283).
Thomas finally figured out how to talk to Teresa in her mind. I think this is important to the story and it might have something to do with them getting out. The Creators had to alter their brains before they went into the maze so they could speak telepathically. For a while, only Teresa could do the telepathy communicating. Now Thomas can too. I think this is a huge step towards exiting the maze.
I really like this book!I'm really wondering who put the runners into this maze? Why is this happening for them ? What will face them when they get out?
Who put the Grievers into the maze also? I don't see the point of letting the Grievers go at night when the Maze is closed.And why can't the Grievers go in when there is sunlight?
Why was the Maze created I wonder.What would be the point of sending people into a monster-infested land and try if they come out? will the Maze maker ever be found?I'd really like to find out!!!
I can't believe Thomas doesn't even know his age. He only knows that his name is Thomas, nothing else AT ALL. I wonder who put all of these boys/teenagers in the maze and why they did this.
I'm glad that in the beginning, when Thomas first arrives, at least Chuck helps him. If I were Thomas, I would be terrified to have no idea where you are and to have lost almost all of your memory. I would have been glad that at least one person out of the group of people, is helping you instead of humiliating you like everyone else is doing to Thomas.
I wonder what happens during nighttime. Chuck says "Trust me, when nighttimestrikes, you want to be in bed." (29). I'm guessing that whatever happens is horrible, because it must be even worse than whatever Thomas is seeing right now!!
I think that at this point of the book all characters are confused and afraid of the upcoming events. The chart yes don't know what to expect, or weither pr not they will die
2.I think that even though things are getting scary and abnormal events are occurring all kids have confidence in finding their way out of the maze alive.
3. I think that the character sin this book all have different perspectives Of what the situation is and how thu are planning on getting out.
THE MAZE RUNNER ESSAY
The maze is a metaphor for life with physical manifestations of our emotional changes. One example from the book that can prove this theory is one of the robotic characters, the Griever. Out of this word, you can probably find a word that you may hear people say often. Usually, when you are experiencing grief, you fight it emotionally. In the Glades, you have to fight your grief physically, which is the Griever. If you get stung by a Griever, you go through a process called the Changing. You start remembering things from the past like the people you knew which causes you to experience grief and stress. This is like in our world where you remember the people that you are no longer with anymore and experience grief and sadness. This is one of the examples that proves a Griever is a metaphor for our emotional changes.
Also, another character from the maze that is a metaphor for life and our emotional changes is the Beetle Blade. This creature is used to spy on the Gladers to see their progress and how they are managing to survive. In the real world, we usually spy on ourselves with our mind to see our progress. It is like people judging you, or even you judging yourself. Instead of making goals and tracking your own accomplishments, that is what the Beetle Blades do for the Gladers. Also, you usually create goals and have dreams in your head about what you want to accomplish. Instead of that, the Beetle Blades are used to track your progress and how well you are achieving your goals. They use Beetle Blades to see what kind of person you are and what your instincts are, which is what we think about in our head. When you are judging yourself in your head, you are judging what kind of a person you are.
Lastly, the whole maze combined is a metaphor for life and your emotional changes. In the maze, you can choose to go left, right, or even give up. One of those things is the right thing to do. If you choose to do the wrong thing, you have to pay the price. This is like in the real world, except a little differently. In the maze, if you go in the wrong direction, you will most likely get attacked by a griever. Every single punishment in The Maze is a physical punishment. If you turn the wrong way, you can get killed. In the real world, your punishments aren’t usually death. You can get locked up, or you just won’t be able to achieve the goal you are trying to reach. Also, You will be disappointed in yourself, unlike in the maze, you don’t really know if you make the wrong decision. It’s kind of like rolling a die. If you don’t know what the consequence is going to be when you turn a certain direction, there is nothing you can do about it. If a choice to stay in school or ditch, there is an obvious answer to which choice is the right thing to do. So, in the Glades, the right thing to do is much less obvious than in the real world. These ideas prove that the maze is a metaphor for life with physical manifestations of our emotional changes.
James Dashner’s The Maze Runner is the story of a boy named Thomas who gets sent to this remote little village with only boys as a test to see if he can survive and/or get out. Part of the preparation of being sent to the village is that you have your mind wiped of all things that have happened to you before you go. Thomas tries to conquer his fears by becoming a maze runner and fighting off his bad memories through the made up grievers. Bad memories are the greatest enemies of the maze runners.
The occurrence of Maze Runners living trapped in the maze overnight is very rare because during the night is when the when the maze rearranges and that is also why it is almost impossible to get through the maze, but Thomas somehow, not being a trained maze runner survives a night in the maze and kills of many grievers, which are spider-like alien creatures that are very dangerous. He goes through all of the “levels” of the maze and even finds the end. Even though he finds the end, he refuses to leave without getting all of the other boys who are also trapped in the village.
While killing the grievers, Thomas finds that all of them are charged through tanks that hold bad memories and turn the grievers evil. the cans with the memories can only keep the grievers charged for a while so eventually they will die off but they are always replace with new bad memories. The grievers can severely injure those who chose to fight them. Thomas willingly fights the grievers because he believes that he can defeat them if he forgets all of his bad memories.
Thomas willingly fights against the grievers to conquer his fears and bad memories.he knows that facing bad times will be both hard and scary but he does it anyway to get it over them. He is a very lucky maze runner because he made it through the night trapped in the maze. And although your fears and bad memories may be your biggest enemy sometimes fighting them is better than hiding them in the back of your mind.
The walls can raze or completely destroy Thomas and his friends(10). This is important because they can die from the walls.
Thomas is very confused in the new place he was brought to(25). This is important because he might be able to understand the new people better if they explain everything to him and show him everything.
Thomas is very intrigued when he finds out that the place he was brought to is called the glade(41), This is important because the other boys don't know why they are there either. They might be able to find out why all together.
When Thomas finds out more about the walls he truly sees how dangerous they are. Thomas also finds out that the walls are part of a big maze, "And no one wants to be stuck in the Maze after dark." (58). This is important because they might be able to get through the Maze with each other.
The author sets a suspenseful mood because he slows down the moment to make sure that there are a lot of details(66).
After the long day of Thomas's arrival, the next day a girl comes up(83). This is important because she has a very important message to deliver that might help Thomas.
Thomas needs to stay calm and patient(88). This is important because if he stays calm and patient he might be able to remember important things from his old life.
Thomas wants to find out what a griever is(93). This is important because he might be lead to something that can get him out from the Glade.
Thomas keeps encountering more and more obstacles(105). This might be leading him to the biggest obstacle of all.
"Our main rule, is that you don't go out into the maze at all, unless your a runner"(15)-Alby said. This quote shows how the maze could have something really dangerous inside and only certain people can go through.
"Its a long story shank"-Alby said. This quote shows that Alby is calling Thomas a shank. This word probably means newbie, or below average. Thomas just came, and they are treating him like trash.
"He moved. Forward. He squeezed past the connecting rods at the last second and stepped into the maze". This quote shows that Thomas made a really dumb decision, as based on the past, nobody has ever survived the night in the maze.
"The sun had disappeared"(218). The quote shows that things are going to actually change. Thomas didn't believe Teresa, but its true.
"Float. Catch. Bleed. Death. Stiff. Push"(290). This quote shows that Thomas and Newt have figured out something that could potentially help them escape in the future.
"They needed Thomas' memories"(291). This quote shows that Thomas might have memories that could be crucial to helping the gladers escape.
Why would a girl come? Will they get out
James Dashner’s The Maze Runner is a story about a teenage boy named Thomas and his struggles through trials that put his life on the line. Thomas and his friends are put through trials to cure a disease that has devastated the Earth. With no knowledge of what was happening and who WICKED was. Although the trials contributed to Thomas’s anger with WICKED, it was their lying that really infuriated him.
Thomas finally believes that all the torture they have been through is over, when really it is just starting. Thomas and his friends have been through hell during the maze and now the they don’t know what is happening next. Thomas responds to his friends question, “we’re safe”(364.) This whole statement proves how in the dark the Gladers are about what is about to happen next. The Gladers are continuously lied to with no knowledge of what is going to happen.
The Gladers angry towards WICKED about the maze is unmeasurable. The maze had consisted of things that put their lives at risk everyday. Thomas’s “compressed all his hatred into the glare” (360) he gave WICKED when first meeting them. He takes out all his hatred out on them because it is all their fault. Who could blame him? The maze was only the beginning of his hatred towards WICKED, it is all really the lies they tell him that begins to eat away at his kindness toward them.
When lies are poured into the Gladers ears their hatred towards WICKED enlarge to an extreme. Unlike most Gladers, Thomas is very smart and he can detect a lie or action when he sees one. WICKED doesn’t understand the importance of keeping things to the truth for the Gladers to fully corporate. In our world, trust is the most important thing that keeps any relationship going.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
