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.

    Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.

    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.

    "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 can't put this down"

    This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am about to start the next book in the series and I already feel tense from the cliffhanger ending to this one. Well written and extremely entertaining.

    "Wayward Pines Book 2"

    I try not to read or listen to any book with preconceived notions. Let the story develop itself and see if it keeps my attention and is able to surprise me. This trilogy, this book, has me guessing, frightened, saddened, and terrified with every chapter. It is well written and well read, and I can't wait to read the third book to see what is next...for better or for worse.

    Story
    "Book 1 was a real suspenseful page turner,. but..."
    What did you like best about Wayward? What did you like least?

    I found book 1 to be very suspenseful, and was so was excited to continue the story in Book 2; however, in this book, I was disappointed in the language. What seemed like constant "f" words was very distracting for me and really detracted from what was an imaginative plot. I almost gave up on it several times due to the language but remained curious. I wondered if the author, in his character development, really depicts everyone as speaking that way...


    If you’ve listened to books by Blake Crouch before, how does this one compare?

    I did not like this book as much as the previous one in the series, Pines


    Do you think Wayward needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There is one

    "Better as It Goes"

    Was hesitate whether to read Book #2 since the first book became tired near the end. The first half of Book #2 continued to lag, but made up for it the second half. It ended up being worth the read, but I need a break before Book #3.

    The ending made no sense to this book. Lots of missing information at the end.
