Once again he thought about how absurd it was that he wanted it so badly.

The other Gladers murmured their conversations in hushed tones, an intense feeling of dreadful anticipation hanging over them like a patch of thick fog. A silvery glint caught his attention. Everyone started talking at once; Thomas only caught pieces here and there.
As if reading his thoughts, Alby walked over and grabbed him by the shoulder. Chuck annoy you to death? A loud boom exploded through the air, making Thomas jump. The book has been awarded with , and many others. Thomas barely heard him, shocked by how much bigger it was up close. Thomas watched all this in mute contemplation.

The grave markers had been painted white, but by someone in an obvious hurry—gelled globs covered them and bare streaks of wood showed through. But Thomas knew the kid was up to something. Better than living in a pile of klunk.
His back struck a hard metal wall; he slid along it until he hit the corner of the room. Gally finally broke the spell, standing up. My name is Thomas, he thought. Things just kept getting worse and worse. Even Newt had jumped as if startled, his forehead creasing in concern. Nothing developed, but something about that creepy old building gave him goose bumps, a disquieting chill.

Minutes stretched into hours, although it was impossible to know for sure because every second seemed an eternity. It seemed old and run-down but clean.
