This book has been on my to-read list for a while, but when I got it as a kindle daily deal, it got pushed up. The beginning of the book is kind of slow and a little repetitive. I found myself getting frustrated with Thomas because he couldn't remember what people were telling him (understandable, though, since he was just dropped off in a mysterious place). The way the characters were portrayed really added to the desperate atmosphere of the Gladers. As the book went on the plot started moving faster and it got really interesting. I can't wait to find out more about their society.
