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.

I didn’t much care for the opening book in the Wayward Pines trilogy. Although I appreciated author Blake Crouch’s efforts at recreating the outright weirdness of Lynch’s Twin Peaks, the first book just didn’t have enough story in it to satisfy me. This one is altogether different. We know the situation. The major players are in place. And things get really very interesting.

Wayward Pines reminds me strongly of The Village, the one where The Prisoner was sent and where white beachball-sized bubbles keep the population sufficiently cowed into accepting their oddly artificial, smile-and-stay-schtum humdrum lives. So there’s a satisfying familiarity to life in Wayward, as new sheriff Ethan goes about playing both sides; gaining trust from the inhabitants and their manipulators alike, while rebuilding his relationship with a wife and son he barely knows, dodging surveillance mics and subcutaneous implants . The story bounds along, intriguingly switching perspective to past times, and to a returning colleague, battling the menacing threats outside the fence to get back to Wayward Pines.
The result is a much stronger book than the opening episode, although there’s no getting away from it: you do need to read the first to understand the significance of the second. This is one sequel which won’t work as a stand-alone even though it’s better than its predecessor. It is much more layered; feels more original and less derivative, and opens up some truly interesting storylines for the concluding chapter. I still can’t quite credit the underlying scientific principle but am happy to suspend that disbelief for the pleasure of returning to Wayward Pines a third time, and watching all the suspended shoes drop.
8/10

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?!

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!

without writing any spoilers for anyone who hasn't read this or the first book, all I'll say is that it is just as gripping as the first, just as sinister and you can never be too sure which side anyone is on. I can't wait for the third book which I think is due out in June.

If you like a good mystery with a twist with a bit of sci-fi added in for good measure then this series of books could be for you.

I really quite liked the first book, and thought the big twist at the end was very cool. This book obviously continues the story, but everything feels much smaller, much less impactful. It's enjoyable but nothing special, and is a bit of a letdown as a sequel. It's also pretty predictable. If you liked the first then it's worth reading but it won't rock your world.

I both hated and liked book one, and declared I would definitely not buy book two. Unfortunately for me I am one of those people that must finish something once started, be that a dull/difficult book, or a trilogy.. Anyway, I really enjoyed book two, so much more than Book One. I won't give any spoilers. Obviously at this stage you know the cast of characters, and why it is all happening, so in that respect book two is less frustrating. If you've finished the first book and are undecided re book two - get it, you won't regret it.

This second story in the Wayward Pines Trilogy is exciting and edge of the seat stuff right from page one. It's a great story in its own right and there's no sign of padding in the book to get ready for the big climax in book three. Blake Crouch enlarges on the essence of the story and keeps the reader guessing until the last paragraph where there is a shock ending and leads nicely into book three.
