Would you…moreThis is one of those series that you should read from the beginning. It could just have easily been one long book and been just as good.
Would you watch a Netflix series starting from a random episode? :)(less)
We all have secrets we carry around with us. As a species we aren’t really good at keeping secrets, even those rattling skeletons that could prove detrimental to our lives. In the end, most of us end up telling somebody. You can swear someone to secrecy, but the same itch, the same need to tell someone that compelled you to tell ...more
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.
Work hard, be happy, and enjoy your life in Wayward Pines.

Ethan Burke is now sheriff of Wayward Pines. He knows some of the town's secrets but not even close to all of them.
This series of books are very hard to review without giving any secrets away because the whole damn book is ...more
Wayward, the second book in Blake Crouch’s WAYWARD PINES trilogy, picks up right where book 1, Pines, left off. I’ll avoid THE major spoiler for Pines, but minor ones are inevitable, and if there was ever a series where you absolutely need to read the books in order, this one is it. Ethan Burke is the newly-minted sheriff of the small town of Wayward Pines, Idaho (population ...more
Wayward, the second book in Blake Crouch’s Wayward Pines trilogy follows on directly from book one. The problem in reviewing this instalment is that any mention of the book’s setting or plot will immediately be a major spoiler for book one.
However, our hero Ethan Burke, FBI special agent and general good guy, is still stranded in the strange community of Wayward pines ...... white picket fences handsome Victorian buildings and polite but glazed ...more
"Will this place ever feel like home?"
"I don't know," Pam said as she stood. "That's entirely up to you."

Have you guys read these yet? At least tell me you’ve got the 10 episode television series set to record on your DVR. In case you’re one of the five people left on the planet who has yet to hear about these books, here’s some bad news . . . I can’t really tell you anything that goes down. The ...more
So, I'm going to keep this short.
A successful trilogy usually has this formula:
The first book gives you some situation you find interesting, and ends with a brilliant twist.
The second book rips everything apart, makes you pick a side to do battle on, upsets the norm and makes you want to read the final book...
Ethan is still struggling to control his conflicting emotions - and is trying to fit into his new role in Wayward Pines. There are still a lot ...more
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?! I'm really trying to stay cool while writing this review, but seriously, what the fuck did I just read?! This is no way to finish a book, how dare you Crouch?!?!?! I'm just pleased that I can start book 3 immediately, because waiting, even a day, would be fucking DEVASTATING.
Okay, so now that's out of my system, lets get on with the review.
This book started out a little slow. It didn't ...more
These books are like thrillers on crack, and again the story pulled me in from the very first page. So. Much. Win.
First of all, what you need to know is ________________. Indeed, while the ending of Pines offered us some answers, I have to admit that I wasn't completely convinced by _____________________. In that aspect, Wayward turned out to be a strong and satisfying sequel because _______________________. As for the twists and turns the story takes, didn't you love when _______________ ? It ...more
I liked that book one focused on the character of Ethan Burke, while this one gave some depth to the villain of the series, Thomas Pilcher. While I'm not quite sure how he became the way he is, I did like seeing how he created the technology that brought them here, and his family life before all of this went down.
The book is not as action ...more
I want to keep this review spoiler-free so I'm not going to say anything about the plot in this one, just that the author still manages to keep some atmosphere of mystery even after the events of the first one, and even though the level of suspense just can't be like the first book, this one was still enjoyable! I love this series!
Starting book 3 :)
Almost as good as the first one, but the ending didn't impress me too much. Still - super, super good. I've read it in a day, I couldn't put it down!
I can't wait to see what's next! Thank God the last one is already out!
Here goes, Pointless Review #955 (at the time of posting). But is it specifically this review or any review of Wayward that’s pointless? Probably both! The reason is that I imagine those who’ve read the first book fall into one of only two categories: the ones who enjoyed it and are hungry for more, or the ones who couldn’t get past the shoddy writing and all the plotholes. That being the case, I doubt there’s anything I could say to sway your opinion. And the first book was shrouded in so much ...more
I'm sorry if you do not find this series as cool as I do, and I fully understand that your mileage might vary, but holy shit Wayward Pines is a fun place to visit. This second book wasn't as chock full of what-the-fuckery as the first one, but it held its own. And that ending... Dude, I got goosebumps.
I never knew what to expect, and that's such a refreshing thing to be able to say about book two in a series. I had no idea where Blake was going to go with this ...more
An enjoyable second book in the series. Maybe not quite as smooth or suspenseful (a lot more coincidence moves the plot along) but still enjoyable.
Good cliffhanger has me ready for the next book.
"Hell is coming to you."
I have so much to say....but don't I always??? I want to write an amazing, detailed, long review, but that wouldn't do this series any good, I think. I believe that, while I would LOVE to go on and on and on about all the amazingness that is this series, it would stunt the curiosity I piqued in everyone with my first review of the beginning book. So, I'll keep it short and sweet with just a few points to make things curiouser and couriouser for everyone that chooses ...more
It's going to be awesome.
Wayward is the second installment (middle book) in Blake Crouch's multi-genre trilogy titled: Wayward Pines. This ongoing storyline is super secretive which makes it confusing as hell, but despite that, it's imaginative and engaging enough to keep readers happily hanging ...more
We follow Ethan Burke now being the Serrif trying to solve the mysterios death of a young girl. But till he reaches the solution to it many things come to surface. Many things are ...more

“Before I built a wall I’d ask to know what I was walling in, or walling out.”
Wayward is a good follow up to The Pines. It is just as trippy in its own ways and still manages to have a few surprises up its sleeve.
This is a hard book to review because I don’t want to give away any of the key motivations or surprises for Wayward or it’s prequel. It is still a mind trip as we discover more about Ethan and Theresa’s lives both ...more
While reading this book, I managed to finish and enjoy two thick epic/dark fantasy books .... took me an eternity to finish Wayward.
It wasn't that bad, but this one felt more like a whodunnit kind of book.... not what I was expecting after that first book full of surprises. As for the murder (view spoiler)[you didn't have to be a genius to put Pam as the main ...more
The plot has more holes in it than Swiss cheese but that does not lessen the exhilarating intensity of Ethan's journey or the fun of the story. If first book felt like watching an episode of The ...more
Whilst I’ve scored this the same as I did the first in the series, “Pines”, I think that I actually enjoyed this one more overall. The first novel is all about the tension of what is going on; what the hell is Wayward Pines, why is everyone acting so secret and paranoid, why can’t I communicate with anyone outside of Wayward Pines? It ends on a big reveal but I can’t help but think looking back that the whole novel was geared up for that one reveal, a one trick pony if you will (it wasn’t ...more
There's not quite as much going on until halfway through the book, but it's still an easy book to read, and the creepy ...more
