    This was a super quick, bloody little read. It's nothing too special, as the characters are pretty surface-level and there were some repetitions in the writing. But odds are you're going to pick this up if you're looking for a gory Halloween story. This is definitely it! I wouldn't say it's scary or suspenseful, but it is definitely not for the squeamish as the warning on the cover suggests. Take heed!

    I'm sure glad this was only a quick read as the towel would've been thrown in early in round 2. The Maze doesn't have a lot going for it I'm afraid. The characters are flat, there is no tension or atmosphere and the dialogue is cheesier than a $5 Margherita pizza. Try Wrath James White or Edward Lee if you want to read extreme horror done well because this is far from aMAZEing ;-)

    “The Maze” is only 68 pages long, but it is sixty-eight pages of intensity, suspense, and some gruesome horror! The front cover says “WARNING: this is an extreme horror story. Some content may be disturbing to sensitive readers.” Heed this warning very diligently. I loved it, but it is not for anyone sensitive to splatter-fests, and definitely not for children or young teens. There is also strong language, but if your leg were getting wacked off by a psycho you’d use strong language too.

There is also strong language, but if your leg were getting wacked off by a psycho you’d use strong language too. That being said, if you want to be scared—no, terrified is a better word—then pick up Greene’s “The Maze”, lock the doors securely, turn on all the lights, and be prepared to be ‘nailed’ to your seat until you finish the book. My favorite lines (no spoilers) is when teenager Kayden, is lamenting about how he misses his older brother who would normally be beside him in the car teasing him and “doing what older brothers do when you’re stuck in a car for hours on end.” With two older brothers I know exactly what it is older brothers do when stuck in a car for hours on end. Greene is brilliant as a storyteller and plays on my fears, and right away, he places me in a position of fear. First, I have a phobia about getting lost; so, a maze is not on my list of a ‘good time.’ But, even if someone had convinced me to do the maze I am also claustrophobic; an enclosed, walled, maze in which the entrance door is locked behind me, is a second no on my list. But, even if someone had convinced me to do the confusing, claustrophobic, indoor maze, that’s locked behind me, when the owner confiscates their phones…well, that is a definite deal breaker! But, despite all tha,t and the added benefit of a warning on the cover, I still entered The Maze with five others and like a blind, trusting fools we stumbled along in a shocked, disgusted, and horrified daze. It’s an extreme horror story. You want to be shocked, disgusted, and horrified, so for those of us who like a little gore sprinkled abundantly in our reading material, “The Maze” by Jordon Greene does not disappoint!

    Gore gore gore! If you want adventure with family atmosphere go to the maze. This roadside stop will have all your senses working overtime. Unlike a cornfield maze this is indoors which traps all the odors. And also has many paths to choose from. With such a cheap entrance fee who can refuse to enter? Have fun on this adventure with memories to take home. I recommend this short story all the way!

    Bringing life into each primal dread and covering the pages in blood, [Jordon] constrains you to confront the extremes of the human range.

    Definitely a nail-biter, not much storyline but lots of gore. Heed the warning and watch out for the pumpkin heads.

    Wow! Very Graphic! Nice ending though! I don't know if I will ever go to a haunted house again. Thanks Jordon!

    I really wanted to love this book; it's totally up my alley in terms of genre and the author (who willingly admits this his his first foray into the horror realm) was more than generous for allowing people to read and review it in advance. Unfortunately, I didn't find it especially good. It's very short, which can be a good thing, but it's also verbose about inconsequential details, yet somehow lacking in a varied vocabulary (the word "reeling" is used at least 10 times, for instance).

An entire paragraph about, plus a dozen more references to, a woman's "ass" just feels like unnecessary padding. The dialogue is forced and unnatural, and probably could've been scrapped altogether in many spots. The book is not without its merits, however, the gore scenes are pretty wonderful. They're described with brutal, almost clinical, apathy. Imagine reading the movie Hatchet, basically. It's a printed version of a B-movie. Is it worth a read? Yes, if only for the sensation of having sat through a slasher flick.

    I don't really like short stories but i do like blood and gore. If you are looking for a quick read and you are a fan of the genre than this book is definitely for you! Not recommended for the faint-hearted!

    Blood and Gore What a waste of an hour and a half. One of the stupidest books I've read in a while. I DO NOT recommend this book to anyone!
