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.
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.

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!
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.
