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.

Beginning in late 2005, and inspired by his relocation to Durango, Colorado, he researched and wrote a book set in the past and present in a remote mining town high in the San Juan Mountains. The resulting novel, ABANDON, was published by St. Martin's Press in 2009.

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.

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?

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!

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.

Absolutely loved this series - but read the 3 books in less than 2 days.... once again what is basically one book has been ripped into 3 novellas neither of which took more than a couple of hours to read - this is obviously to maximise income but is a very frustrating trend in modern literature, hence the dropping of one star..... on the positive side this is a real page-turner - the plot is interesting, modern sci-fi genre, different and (mainly) believable - literally couldn't put it down and read well into the small hours of the night. I'm not surprised that these books have been filmed for TV - am not a fan of giving away or summarising the plot but suffice to say that it has gory action aplenty for the blokes, as well as love interest for the girls, as well as being an interesting and thought-provoking read. It is extremely fast-paced and the writing is pretty slick. I've put Blake Crouch on my "must buy" list.

If you haven't read books one or two (my reviews are here if you want a look) please stop and read because there will be spoilers for you.

Wayward Pines is in uproar, at the end of the last book the residents where shocked to learn that their "idyllic" lives are a sham and that they are several thousand years in the future.

As far as they know they are the last remaining humans on the planet, a planet that is now overrun by abbies, humanoid creatures with a taste for flesh. Unfortunately for our townsfolk, at the end of the last book crazy town creator David Pilcher has done the unthinkable and opened the gate that kept that abbies out and the townsfolk safe.

Ethan Burke our secret service agent turned town sheriff has to convince everyone that they are in serious danger and they need to get the hell out of dodge quickly before they become a hot meal for one of those creatures.

So the question is will they survive? There is not many of them and thousands of abbies, the odds are definitely not in their favour. A bit of a bloodbath is what happens next, not for the faint of heart but the utopia created by Pilcher falls apart page by page with the population dropping like flies.

The Last Town was a great end to a very enjoyable series, it didn't suffer from crap last book syndrome which several good series have been spoilt for me by. It is pure escapism, it is fast paced, bloody and engaging, I think you should read it!

Thanks to Thomas and Mercer for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
