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?

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.

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.

As trilogies go, Wayward Pines has been one of the best that I've read so far. And the final book did not disappoint!

Following on straight from the second book, you're thrown straight into the action and the carnage. And just when you think the characters are out of the woods, it all starts kicking off again! This is definitely not a predictable book, and the ending is testament to its unpredictability.

Admittedly, I found myself wondering who some of the mentioned characters were before I realised that they'd appeared in the previous books with smaller roles, but as the majority of them weren't around for too long (if you get my drift), it wasn't too bad.

The end was not what I was expecting at all. I wasn't overly thrilled by the ending but that was because it seemed a little tame compared to the earlier events in the book, but it was definitely a fitting ending to the whole trilogy.

And despite all the events that took place in the whole trilogy, I still can't help but wonder what it'd be like to live in Wayward Pines. I just wouldn't want to live there when the events of this book were taking place!

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!
