Antagonist- The Creators
This dystopian novel takes place in a Place called the Glade, which is a open plain of land, with small buildings, trees farms and a cemetery surrounded by an enormous maze.
Conflict-Character vs. Characters
OH MY GOD
Thomas is a 16 year old teen who is randomly put into the Glade, but he is different from the other boys because not only was he a maker of the maze but he can also telepathically talk to Teresa, another maker of the maze.
One of the "Creators" ,as the Gladers call them, is Ava Paige, she is one of Creators of the maze and she is the CEO of WCKD which is a secret organization that is responsible for the Maze and the horrible Grievers.
The main conflict is a Character vs. Character conflict between the Gladers and WCKD which spans through the whole book. Eventually the maze doors do not shut which leave an open door for the grievers to come into the glade and attack Thomas and his friends.
The theme in the Maze Runner is Bravery because to be in the Glade you have to be extremely brave and fearless. You have to face what is happening in the now and always be ready to face it right away strong and fierce.
