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?

    "1st Pines, now Wayward, next ...."

    Thought I would not finish Pines, it was not to my liking. By the time I got to the end, I was ready for #2, .... now I cannot wait for #3!! Also, I will watch the TV show. Hope it lives up to the books!

    "Second book in the trilogy cranks up the stakes"

    There is not much to say about this book without spoiling the Big Reveal at the end of the first book.

    Wayward is as tense and captivating as the first book. It's also even more improbable, as we learn more and more about what's really going on, and the protagonist engineers one unlikely escape after another. My suspension of disbelief kept being tested, but I kept reading.

    This book ends in a huge (albeit predictable) cliffhanger, and hopefully everything will be resolved in the third book, though since this was made into a TV series, who knows?

    "Excellent follow-up to Book One"

    This really was an excellent follow-up to the first book. It is full of surprises, with enough twists to keep you wondering how things could ever work out. My only complaint, and it is small, is that the reader doesn't have much range when it comes to female voices. They sound almost the same at times, which distracts slightly when listening.

    "Book 2 is great!"

    I listened to the audiobook part one (Pines) but I seem to like this one even more! Now that Ethan knows the truth of Wayward Pines, he's trying to adjust. Part one (Pines), I felt was slow at the beginning and got better towards the middle. The end was amazing! But I feel like part two (this one) had a good flow...and it explains more of the characters and background of events that led to why Wayward Pines is the way it is. Great book! Best if read as a trilogy. About to start book 3 (The Last Town). Am excited!

    "Different From The TV Series"

    The books are different from the TV series. Don't have any preconceived ideas. A fun read.
