this was my favorite Harry Bosch books of all time. I also really enjoy the Mickey Haller series so when the two of them were together, bonus

this book of Lucy's life makes me Love Lucy even more. and having her daughter being the narrator makes it even more special. at times she sounds similar to her mother.

This book picks up right where book 2 ends and the momentum rarely stops. Where book 1 is the "What the hell is going on" mystery, this book is the "how are they going to survive" mystery. I started reading this book before bed and had trouble sleeping when I tried. How do you sleep not knowing the fate of characters you have come to love.

This 3-book series does not disappoint. I recommend it to any thriller, mystery, or science fiction fan. I have read comparisons for this series to the TV show Lost. This show answers all but one question, are there pets in Wayward Pines?

After reading book 1, I was wondering how this series was going to continue. When I started this book, I was a bit surprised by the turn of events that take place and the ending I never saw coming.

This book introduces some new characters and shows some old ones in a new light. I love this series and recommend it to any thriller, Sci-Fi, or mystery fan. However, to follow along, I recommend starting at the beginning.

I saw previews for the Wayward Pines miniseries and was intrigued. After watching the TV show lost, I was afraid I would invest 10 hours to a show that gave no answers. So I read the book. I was quickly sucked in and am now a fan. This book provides answers to the main mystery. Books 2 and 3 answer all other questions.

I loved this series of books. I just hope the miniseries lives up to the books.
All three books are worth the money!

First let me say, if you have not read the first 4 books of the series, don't start here. This series is not for everyone. I started with Brimstone (book 5) and worked my way forward. I have enjoyed the series so far, but I can certainly see why some people are put off by the series. If you read any of the Pendergast Books, be prepared to suspend belief in rationale thinking.

As for the people who bash Scott Brick, I think he is one of the best narrator's in the business, He does a superb job with this series as he does all of his other projects.

The people I trade books with at work all told me that this was not a read for me, it was a chick book. I found it on sale at Audible and gave it a listen. The only thing that gave me reservation was that the author was the narrator, which is not always a good thing.

This book had everything, well developed characters, humor, suspense and lots of emotional scenes. This is a well written book.

Alice Sebold does an excellent job bring the characters to life.

John Saul comes up with such great books that just seem to fall flat at the end. This isn't a horrible book, it is however a bit too far fetched. This story had the potential to be better but never rose above mediocre.

Tess Gerritson's stand alone books are always hit or miss for me. When I saw Maura Isles mentioned in the plot summary, I bought it. To my relief, this book is a hit and probably my favorite stand alone to date.

As the two mysteries unfold, one in the 1830's and the other in present day, the back and forth is well proportioned to keep the listener/reader engrossed and in the dark.

This book is definitely worth the money

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, and I have. When this book first came out I had it in paperback, my ex-girlfriend kept it. I have since bought the book in hardcover and audio. I don't know why I loved this story as much as I did, but I do.

What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

I prefer his narration's to his acting any day. To be far, he was great in Beverly Hills Cop

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, this was the first book of Stephen King's that I loved from cover to cover. I have read most of his older books and can find things in most of them that I didn't like.
