Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. Nestled amid picture-perfect mountains, the idyllic 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. None of the residents know how they got here. They are told where to work, how to live, and who to marry. Some believe they are dead. Others think they're trapped in an unfathomable experiment. Everyone secretly dreams of leaving, but those who dare face a terrifying surprise. 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.

    "I can't wait for book 3"

    I admit I had no idea until I read a review that I was reading a trilogy. I would have figured it out, though, after book 2, Wayward Pines, as there wasn't a definitive ending. In fact, the whole shebang could have ended with this book with the future of humanity looking rather bleak, but it would have been very unsatisfying. However, as it's not the end of the tale, I am very eager for the final book. I love the narrator - the characters are clear and he uses rate effectively throughout.

    "Excellent Sequel to Pines!"
    Where does Wayward rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Both are in my top 25. Original, thought-provoking and suspenseful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wayward?

    Sorry, no spoilers!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. The story flows with just right mix of suspense and action. It would probably be best if you read Pines first. I really liked Pines and Book Two might actually be better.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    Story
    "Don't ask, don't tell."

    This mystery surrounds a whole town of people who don't know how they got there and know they can never leave. People can remember their lives before they ended up there but are strongly persuaded to go along and not make waves. No TV and only one occasional radio broadcast. Parents are not to ask or become involved with the children's schooling and many more strange things drive some to rebel in secret. Every now and then someone out of the blue, for no reason ends up dead in a public place with no suspects.

    The chief of police is ex-FBI and has been let in on the secret, however, none of this sits right with him. A good second book that kind of leaves you hanging, but I am excited to see where the next book will take me. Good story and good narration.

    I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.

    "Next please!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wayward to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read it, I couldn't stop listening to it.


    What other book might you compare Wayward to and why?


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael Garcia – was your favorite?


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


    Any additional comments?

    "It's interesting and fun, but later I had issues"

    This was a good read/listen. I enjoyed it and looked forward to coming back to it. I will be listening to the next in the series. But ... can we talk about the women in this book for a second?

    I don't really want to give any spoilers, so long story short ... no.. just no. They are all just such one note dummies. The point that drove this home for me was Pilchers wife. How she could have expected any differently is beyond me.

    So, if you're looking for just something fun with some twists and mystery and a bit of action violence, I highly recomend. Just be warned, this was written by a total dude.

    "Even better than the first!"

    Such a great second book in a series. Satisfying plot, great characters, and crazy tension. Action sequences are a bit more precisely played out in this book than in the first. I normally listen only on the bus but found myself "cheating" at non-bus times (work!!) to find out what happens next.

    "Great story but..."
    What did you love best about Wayward?

    This is a really good story. Exciting, never a dull moment. You're going to rip through these books in no time.


    What other book might you compare Wayward to and why?

    Maybe Maze Runner, Hunger Games that type of book.


    What about Paul Michael Garcia’s performance did you like?

    This is good narration. You always know what characters are talking. He's a really good story teller.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's not a moving book per se. It is quite riveting throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong, this is a great story, a fun read and it will keep you listening for sure. My only complaint is this stereo-typed "super protagonist" that a lot of male authors create (fantasize about) where the main character has to "do it all" himself and all the other characters are pretty much useless without him. That gets annoying after a while.

    "Better Than the First"

    Wayward beats Pines! Maybe it's because I was a little more invested with the characters but mostly this installment was more well paced and exciting. Time for #3 I guess
