Book Description

The third book in the Wayward Pines Series—now a Major Television Event from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, starring Matt Dillon and premiering May 14th on FOX.

Welcome to Wayward Pines, the last town.

Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrived in Wayward Pines, Idaho, three weeks ago. In this town, people are told who to marry, where to live, where to work. Their children are taught that David Pilcher, the town’s creator, is god. No one is allowed to leave; even asking questions can get you killed.

But Ethan has discovered the astonishing secret of what lies beyond the electrified fence that surrounds Wayward Pines and protects it from the terrifying world beyond. It is a secret that has the entire population completely under the control of a madman and his army of followers, a secret that is about to come storming through the fence to wipe out this last, fragile remnant of humanity.

    More About the Author

    Blake Crouch was born near the piedmont town of Statesville, North Carolina in 1978. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2000 with degrees in English and Creative Writing.

    2004 and 2005 saw the publications of his first two novels, DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS.

    His next novel, SNOWBOUND, is forthcoming in June 2010.

    Blake lives with his family in southwest Colorado, where he is at work on a new book.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the previous 2 books 16 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I loved the first 2 books, as the world described by Blake Crouch is so unlike anything I'd ever read before. However, I think this one fell a bit flat. In my opinion, nothing much really happened in this book that couldn't have been summarized into 20-30 pages at the end of the previous book.

    * Spoilers Below *

    Most of the book is just describing the bloody consequences of the gate being left open at the end of the previous book. After that, a new problem of diminishing resources is introduced.

    I did like that they introduced some backstory, describing how Pilcher's crew built the town in the first place. However, it introduces a major flaw in the entire premise of building Wayward Pines: How is it that he has a crew of hundreds of people that are 100% devoted to him, completely trustworthy, and reliable, and yet his "town population" need to be deceived, lied to, and manipulated into accepting a fake reality?

    In the first book it was explained that "we tried telling them the truth but they all committed suicide", but now that the town's backstory has been revealed somewhat, it just doesn't make sense anymore. How come his crew didn't kill themselves? They built an entire town from scratch, why couldn't he have just recruited more of that sort of person instead of kidnapping people in order to build this weird "aquarium" of people to look at?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant end to a brilliant trilogy. 16 July 2014
    By Flew21
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Same as some other reviews - having read the first two i COULDN'T wait for the third and final (?!) installment. I read it all in one go on the day it was released and I think its the perfect way to wrap up the series. Pace, plot, everything is spot on, and you do get the back story 'fleshed out' a fair bit.
    Blake Crouch is far and away my new favourite author, and i cannot wait for his next book-be it something new or (fingers crossed) one more visit to Wayward Pines!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 16 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Great conclusion to the trilogy, particularly love the ending. Blake Crouch's prose is so vivid and accurate and the writing style very cinematic. Can see this being adapted well to screen. Absolutely loved spending time in Wayward Pines, what a creepy, cool world it was. Sad it's come to an end.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The end of a good story..... 17 July 2014
    By RyTy
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I looked forward to the thrid book of the series to be released, and overall, it was good, but perhaps not quite as good as the first two books.

    Once again, the story progressed well explaining what happened to the main characters and what kind of future they (and humanity) would have. This book was perhaps a little more predictable than the previous ones, but it brought the series to a decent ending - although perhaps an ending that was too easy.

    If you enjoyed the first two books, The Last Town is a 'must have' if only to end the experience. It was an enjoyable read and i'm pleased I brought it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, WOW, WOW 13 Nov. 2014
    By CMD
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    OMG what a way to finish the trilogy. Complete roller-coaster of a book from start to finish just like the two before, I was so engrossed in this book that I read it in one sitting. Explosive plot with an absolutely stunning ending (will not spoil it for you).
    I must say that I found this trilogy to be very thought provoking and really quite a scary reminder of just how transitory human existence is. What is really scary about this trilogy is that it is not beyond the realms of possibility that what happens in Pines could become reality, after all modern man evolved from the Rift Valley in East Africa as a result of dramatic climactic change. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this trilogy and now can't wait to see what Fox do when bringing it to the screen.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent ending... 22 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I've loved reading this trilogy - so imaginative and gripping - and had pre-ordered The Last Town as soon as I'd finished the first two books... it was worth the wait!

    The Last Town is very well-thought out, very tense and, ultimately, very surprising at its conclusion. Crouch has an excellent writing style and I've found all three of the books real page-turners that I've stayed up waaaay past my bedtime to finish (and that's saying something at my sort of age - I love my sleep!!).

    I'd thoroughly recommend the trilogy to anyone who loves a good sci fi/post-apocalyptic story. I'm going to be looking at his other books now with keen interest...

    4.0 out of 5 stars A suitable end(?) for the series.... 17 July 2014
    By Sub-o
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Although the book reads like a movie script, (it should make for interesting viewing, this summer!) it's no worse for it. After the cliff-hanger ending of Wayward, the pace immediately resumes and rushes you through most of the rest of the book. It relents only in about the last fifth.
    The two previous instalments must be read prior to diving into book 3. There is some background, but the author rightly assumes you've read the first two books. The fundamental premise is revealed towards the end of Pines.
    I'd love there to be a continuation of the series and the epilogue provides the starting point....
    Overall a satisfying end to the trilogy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Novel By Far 15 April 2015
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The best novel I read by far. Period

    Ethan Burke, the main character in this book, who's also a secret agent who has stumbled in this town call Wayward Pines and try to find his missing FBI partners. Through the journey, he get to know this town and understand this is not what it seems on the outside and inside.

    The book have a rich structure and layers. You can totally tell the author, Blake Crouch had put a lot of thought on the plot. The plot of the story is among humanity, emotions, choices of people make, decisions, survival in this world which no one knows what's going on.

    It's not just Ethan Burke you would fall in love with, but because of the book is so well written, you even get to know different residents from Wayward Pines. You fall in love with them, you care for them, you worry about them, and you cry for them.

    While I was reading it, the exciting was never end. I honestly didn't even put the book down, not even after I finished one book I immediately want to pick up the second and third one and wanting to keep reading it without sleep or rest. When I'm getting close to the end of the 3rd book, I was so worry about how the book gonna end, would it be a crappy ending? Like lots of other boosk I've read before, the middle is rich but the ending is feeling like rushing through. But not this one, you have a a satisfied story, excitement all the way through, a beautiful, tearful ending, and a wow factory till the very very last page!

    If you are looking for a perfect novel, a thriller, a great story, an exciting story which inject you with all kind of emotions during the road you are going through with the characters, this is the one book you can't miss! You shouldn't and never miss reading this book in your life time. TRUST ME on this!

    P.S don't just buy the 1st book, get the whole series!
