Book Description

The second 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, 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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read 19 Sept. 2013
    By ElaineG TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is the second book in a three part series which started with Pines. Although it is not necessary to have read Pines first, it will help, but I think it will be necessary to have read this book at least before reading the third book in the series, when that is released.

    It is very hard to categorise this book - part horror, part science fiction, part dystopian, part conspiracy read. If you like your horror set in small town America then this read really should be right up your street. I have seen it likened to Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone and if you throw The Prisoner, Stepford and The Walking Dead into the mix, then that should give you an idea of the sort of read you are going to get.

    I found it very gripping and addictive, with a really good well thought out storyline. One word of caution - this read does end on a cliffhanger, so if you like your stories all nicely wrapped up at the end, then this may not be the read for you. Personally I am now really looking forward to the next in the series and I understand that Fox TV are turning it into a serial, so that is something that will be well worth watching.

    5.0 out of 5 stars great follow up 22 Sept. 2013
    By Misty
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a great 2nd part to what I'm guessing will be a trilogy. Sometimes middle books are fillers, but not this one which combines a murder mystery with the continuing revelations of the post-apocolyptic world created in the first book in the series. It also fills in some more of the backstory for key characters and introduces more insight into the 'abbies', laying foundations for how these creatures might develop in the next in the series
    I devoured this in a day and can't wait for the 3rd installment.

    Read Pines first if you haven't read this.
    And if you have read Pines read Wayward!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended reading 5 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    After having read and really enjoyed 'Pines' (the first book in this series) I was looking forward to reading this book. It picks up the story from where it left off in book one and was every bit as engrossing. I don't remember when I last read fiction books so avidly - I usually read more factual or technical titles. I am now going to have to buy 'The Last Town' (book three in the series) in order to read the rest of the story. I would thoroughly recommend these books to anyone that enjoys a bit of escapism that's not too heavy a read.

    3.0 out of 5 stars ironically addictive 5 Nov. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I had already read the first book in the series and was curious to see what lay in store for Ethan. Must say i find the whole plot line a bit far-fetched but paradoxically it is a page-turner. And everyone loves a rebel, right?!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good 13 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is ridiculous ! Although I read it to the end I have no intention of reading any more of these books.
    The story, if there is a story revolves around a town where the people have just woken up after nearly 2000 years and they find that the world has changed. I read the whole story but I must say that I lost interest about a quarter of the way in, but I did finish it in case it got better.
    Perhaps I am just not tuned in to this type of story but I did not like it.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of a Story 9 Jan. 2015
    By Kublai
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A disappointing sequel. The first novel in the series was frustrating but did set up a great story world. This second novel could have done so much with it but the whole thing remains stuck in the one location and drags out one inevitable story line.

    The characterisation is poor. The hero is an idiot, showing no kind of emotional depth, nor morality, nor any intellect whatsoever. He is supposed to be a trained soldier and secret service man, who has just been given access to a Sheriff's office full of weapons. He would never acquiesce with the plan of the insane scientist; he would start taking the lie apart from the beginning; take over the mountain base (all the other guards are simply homeless people who were offered a second chance); he certainly wouldn't go the risky, illogical way he ends up going. In the whole two books he didn't win one single fight. It was a challenge for him to land a punch; he got attacked and was severely injured in pretty much every other chapter; and he spent the whole second novel opting not to carry a gun.

    It's all designed so the author can have the situation he wants to write about, rather than because it would actually happen, or makes any logical sense.

    The writing, as with the first novel, is irritating - just a succession of abbreviated sentences that are skimmed past. They don't create excitement or an engaging sense of pace - just a shallowness and lack of reality.

    I won't be reading the next in the series.

    When I started to read the first book I nearly gave up. But, something kept me hooked. I had to buy book 2, now I have to buy book 3. 'nuf said' as we say in Salford.
