Some of the little conflicts include children's memories getting erased and not knowing how they got to the mysterious village which everyone lives in. Overall the main conflict is the fact that all of the children are basically trapped in their village. There is a big wall that opens everyday. On other side of the wall is the maze.There are runners that will go out into the maze to see if they can find an exit to the real world. This is really hard considering the maze changes its shape everyday.This is a person versus person problem. This is the maze children versus the makers of the maze. The conflict is similar to one of the conflicts in "The Mocking Jay". In the Mocking Jay the people in district 13 have to hide from the rest of the public just like the children in "The Maze Runner.
Being scared: As you are sent away while you 're young to a mysterious place with no memories of the past. Most things in life cost something, sadly, and in the Gladers case, sometimes the cost they are making is someone 's life. Throughout the story there are examples of people risking their life in order to benefit everyone and the best that can come. Sometimes there are selfish motivations, and sometimes there isn’t, but it 's pretty bad when an innocent person has to die. In the book ”The Maze Runner” by James Dashner, the definition of being scared applies to Thomas as he is being sent away from his family and life to a place called the Glade, through an underground elevator, without any memories of the past. In the book “The Maze
In the beginning, the main character, Thomas, has his memory wiped so he doesn’t know anything. Over time though, he begins to accept where he is (the Glade) and that the people in the Glade have nothing but each other. Thomas also adapts to the Glade’s slang, and talks like a Glader. He also saves the lives of some Gladers who are his friends, such as Alby. At the end Thomas became a sort of leader, trying to make the best decisions when the rest of the Gladers didn’t know what to do. Thomas talks to the other Gladers like someone would talk to their friends or family, and Thomas does his best to help protect the Gladers.

The Maze Runner begins with a young boy, Thomas, starting his new life in an elevator. Thomas has no memory of his life prior to this moment. In his mind he could see things, and he knew things, but he did not know where he was, or where he came from. His life was a mystery. When the elevator doors finally open, Thomas finds himself standing in a glade surrounded by walls. There are several other boys, who like Thomas, do not know where they came from. All the young boys knew were what their names were. These boys, who have no memory of their lives prior to entering the Glade, pull Thomas into the Glade. Thomas quickly discovers that the Glade is like a farm. The farm is run by Alby and Newt. Alby and Newt are two boys who control everything and everyone in the Glade. They force all the boys to do farm work while at the Glade. Alby and Newt are very mean to the boys, and force all of the boys to adhere to a strict set of rules.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner is a young adult/ science fiction book which takes place in a maze known as the Glade. Some of the most important characters include Minho and Thomas. Minho is one of the most interesting characters in the book. He was the leader of the boys, called Gladers, and one of the wisest characters in my opinion. Thomas is the main character of the story. Despite his memory loss, he helps guide the Gladers out of the maze they have been placed in. His strong efforts to save the Gladers and do what’s right has earned him the respect and trust to become a leader.
The terrifying nature of freedom causes individuals to assimilate into society out of fear. Societies thus take advantage of this by oppressing individuals to maintain stability. In George Orwell’s 1984, which is based on a rundown city called Oceania, the proles always accept everything that the party tells them without any questions. They let the government completely control their lives without hesitation. The Maze Runner by James Dashner also exhibits oppressive environments and individuals who accept these societies. In the Maze Runner, the people in the maze are all trapped in a maze, limiting where they can go and what they can do. Both 1984 and The Maze Runner exhibit the oppressive nature of society and how accepting to be controlled
Thomas is the narrator and protagonist of the story. He arrives in the maze with no knowledge of who he is or was. He only remembers his name and nothing else about his life.

Since arriving in the maze, Thomas makes both friends and enemies and proves to be a leader among the other boys with him in the maze.

The Maze Runner, written by James Dashner is the first book in the Maze Runner pentalogy. The story follows the adventures of a sixteen-year-old boy named Thomas, who finds himself waking up in the heart of a labyrinth, titled ‘The Glade’. As it turns out there are many teenage boys accompanying Thomas. The aim is to escape from the labyrinth, but this does not go as effortlessly as it sounds, due to the fact that the labyrinth is constructed by the inexplicable and threatening WICKED (World In Catastrophe Killzone Experiment Department). At nightfall, the walls of the labyrinth move and barricade the four entrances of the labyrinth. The walls prevent the boys from being attacked by creatures called grievers, who walk around the labyrinth every night. Survival intuition, faith and friendship are some of the themes portrayed in the book. In the film adaptation of The Maze Runner, there are three highly visible differences in comparison to the book. In the first place, Dashner delightfully depicts the thought processes of the protagonist in the book, whilst in the film this is not portrayed at all. Secondly, the time frame of the film is diminished, which makes the story less plausible. Lastly, the strong characters Dashner developed for the books are nullified in the film adaptation. Therefore,
The title The Death Cure, seems almost oxymoronic, falsely true. From the first book, The Maze Runner, it seems like WICKED is desperately searching for a cure that could possibly prevent the extinction of the human race from the Flare. Mainly, The Death Cure is focusing on the cure to the disease. But as we read on, it seems like there was never a cure, but death. The cure looks like it could be letting everyone who has been infected, die while the immunes get to start over. WICKED should have been searching for a way to stop the spread of the disease instead of finding a cure for death, which has been their main problem.
