More or less, yes. Also, I read a small section of it. If you value your sanity and your last meal, don't look into it.

I didn't really plan on reading it, I just kept hearing about it.

Well now you know all you need to know.
Oh, another book that I don't really like but everyone else seems to; Night, by Eli Weisle. It's a "classic" (read; a book you're given in your high school LA class, along with 1984 and Animal Farm, maybe Fahrenheit 451), and it an autobiography of a guy in a WWII concentration camp. My teacher said it made her cry. I read it, and I couldn't get anything from it but the feeling the guy was griping.

Yeah. Everything is predictable. That's why I loved maze runner so much

I would think something that has mazes would be unpredicatble. Thats the whole point of a maze. Also, anything by Philip Reeve is good.

The maze is only in the first book, but the series stays unpredictable even after that! The characters are unpredictable(which is a rare thing in books)

*narrows eyes* Is this a challenge?

(I have a tendency to call almost everything in books. It's ridiculous.)

Is this real unpredictability, or psudo-unpredictability?
