Maze Runner Movie and Book Comparison
BY Ayssa M. & Carly P.; staff writers
Have you ever wondered if books and movies are similar? Well, movies and books do have similarities and differences. The Maze Runner is a series. There is a total of three books and a prequel. This is the order of the series The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, and The Kill Order. These books are basically about a group of teenagers who are trying to find their way out of a huge maze. All of these teenagers lost their memory and all they can remember are their names.
One of the major differences between the book and the movie was that Thomas and Theresa are not able to communicate telepathically.For example, in the book while Theresa is in a coma she’s able to communicate with Thomas where as in the movie the first they talk to each other is when she’s out of the coma. Talking about Theresa she didn’t stay in the coma as long as the book because stays unconscious throughout a third of the book. In addition, the last major difference is that when the Grievers attack they kill about half of the Gladers because in the book the Grievers take out one Glader a night.In the movie the night when the grievers attck they kill Alby, but in the book Alby dies when they are fighting off the Grievers trying to make it to the Griever Hole.
Secondly, novices of movies should get your pants on because were naming the minor differences to impress your friends. In the movie Alby and Thomas get along pretty well compared to how Alby treats Thomas in the book. In the book Alby treats Thomas pretty harsh evry since he arrived to the Glade.In additon, when Alby,Thomas, and Minho are in the maze during the night Minho is braver in the movie than the Book. Because in the book Minho automatically leaves Thomas to fend for himself even though Minho knows the Maze by the back of his hand. However, in the movie Minho stays to help Thomas secure Alby before fending for themselves.
In conclusion, the book and movie of The Maze Runner is a great way to relieve stress because it’s action packed along with a fun spot the difference game between the movie and book. Enjoy watching and reading the series.
