Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. The town is a modern-day Eden... except for the electrified fence and razor wire, snipers scoping everything 24/7, and the relentless surveillance tracking each word and gesture. Ethan Burke has seen the world beyond. He's sheriff, and one of the few who knows the truth-- Wayward Pines isn't just a town. And what lies on the other side of the fence is a nightmare beyond anyone's imagining....

Definitely not as compelling reading as the first book in the trilogy which was hard to put down. This one reads very much like a TV series; you can visualize the scenes and mark the episode breaks. Crouch does know how to create tension, but I feel no desire to read the final book.

I'll admit, I didn't read this book/series until after seeing the first season of the show. While loved the show, I'm glad there were enough differences not to ruin the book for me. The books are more expansive than the show, which covers all three books in one season. The book ending is also very different, and much darker than the show.

Well worth the read, and I can't wait to get through Crouch's newest, "Dark Matter".

The revelation of the first book was carried on here without the multitudes of cheesiness that could have been but rather this book is more geared toward the characters themselves rather than the mystery. An excellent way to change it up, keep it interesting yet continue with the page turning suspense I've come to expect.

Again I am enraptured with a trilogy I must finish just to see how it all ends. It is kind of like the power, heated, cardio, core, sculpt, yoga class I attend every morning at 5:45am. As it begins I think to myself, "What in the hell have I gotten myself into again this early?" Then about half way through I am praying to a God I don't believe in that everyone in the class, especially the instructor will drop dead so I can quit. Eventually I figure I've made it this far so I may as well soldier on to the end and I'm always glad after that I did. So too do I start these enormous page count, post-apocalypse, dystopian novels and wonder why do I keep doing this to myself? Then about halfway through I want every character to die just to get it over with but by the end I cannot wait to queue up the next trilogy.

Very good follow up to the 1st book & now I'll start the last of this trilogy.
