Mar 23, Kaora rated it really liked it Shelves: This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. From the moment I began with book one, to the end of book two I have been unable to put this series down. 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 p This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The book is not as action packed as the first, but it it has some great new developments that kept me hooked from beginning to end.
I often struggle with books that are in the middle of a trilogy as I feel it is sometimes a filler book, simply for money.
One that adds very little to the story. Happily that is not the case with this book. It finishes on a bit of a cliffhanger that has me anxious for book 3. View all 3 comments. I am so happy that I was able to enjoy this second book! 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: This is my third Blake Crouch book and they all have this in common: Jun 17, Elizabeth Sagan rated it it was amazing. This one is a 4. Still - super, super good. I've read it in a day, I couldn't put it down! Thank God the last one is already out! View 1 comment. Now you may be wondering is it specifically this review or any review of Wayward that I find pointless?
Probably both! First, the good news is that book two, in my opinion, maintains the story quite well. If you sort of enjoyed book one, by all means, carry on. Wayward picks up right where Pines left off.
There is no discernible gap, just a continuation of a larger tale. Will the new guy like what he sees? Book two, as per usual, is also a time for backstories. A few of the main players are fleshed out to help us gain a better perspective of some of the underlying motivations driving their actions.
I found these sections to be rather insightful. Now, onto some bad news. One of the biggest selling points for the first book was that crazy wtf factor. It really is rather short though, and mostly a page-turner, so I doubt that will be much of a problem.
I suggest you carry on, old chap. Give it another go. What the hell are you waiting for? Pines Book One: View all 18 comments. 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 t "Hell is coming to you. So, I'll keep it short and sweet with just a few points to make things curiouser and couriouser for everyone that chooses to read this: All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts. Ethan grew so much in this story. In book one, we didn't know a lot about him, and we didn't know what kind of guy he really was-What he was made of, if you will. We knew of his tryst, of his adoration for his wife. We knew he was stubborn beyond words So, essentially, in this one, we begin to see even more of his cleverness and quick wit, setting in stone his intelligence and willingness to make things right They go hand in hand with this story.
Let's see what he's made of. The atmosphere, while still eerie, is blown to bits in this one after the big 'reveal' of book one. I can't say it's as creepy as it was in the first installment, but there was still an underhanded malice that made you question where things were going and how things could possibly get better for the town's residents.
And since I am obsessed with my dear Ethan For every perfect little town, there's something ugly underneath. The Writing: Gahd, do I love Crouch's writing.
It's virtually impossible not to become wholly immersed in this story with his writing style. In book one, sure, I could understand people not loving or being a bit put off about the amazing fragmented sentences which I loved, if you can't tell , but I never had a problem with them. A shiv straight into Ethan's gut would've felt better. He lost his breath. Saw the world suddenly through a blur of tears. What more can you ask for? A millennium without air or light pollution made for pitch-black skies.
The stars didn't just appear anymore. They exploded. Diamonds on black velvet. You couldn't tear your eyes away. So, as you can see, I'm obsessed. So that's how I will end this: Read it, don't read it-that's your call.
But I, my friends, am knee deep, up shit creek, whatever phrase you wana use, in love with this series. Did I mention I'm obsessed? For more of my reviews, please visit: I still haven't watched the TV adaptation of this series. My plan is to read the trilogy in its entirety first, and then instead of watching the screen, watch my husband instead as he looks like this 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 o I still haven't watched the TV adaptation of this series. 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 on. And so far, each book ends on an epic scene that makes resisting the next book near impossible.
There's no filler in Wayward. There's glimpses into the past, revelations that concern the present, and significant shifts in group dynamics that will surely impact the future. One more book, then bring on the popcorn! Hubby has no idea lol.
My favorite quote: Oh, hell yeah, this was awesome. 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 se Oh, hell yeah, this was awesome. I had no idea where Blake was going to go with this sequel and I was kinda worried he'd spent his load with the first book, but he did not disappoint.
It's a much different read than Pines. Deeper, I would say. I enjoyed the introspective parts just as much as I enjoyed the pacing and the characters. Paul Michael Garcia does another fantastic job with the audiobook.
No issues with the production.
In summation: Can't say I found a single thing I didn't like, so, just like its predecessor, Wayward gets all the stars. I want to jump directly into the next book, but I need sleep. Final Judgment: Cool as stasis. View all 6 comments. This is what I kept thinking about the whole time I was reading this and they talked about the "creatures" 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. Jul 08, Robert rated it really liked it Shelves: A fate worse than death awaits the townsfolk of Wayward Pines. Prison could be considered a picnic. In prison, there are rules, laws, restrictions, and armed guards, who in theory at least, help keep the peace.
Wayward Pines has no such laws and restrictions. Oh, and you may want to bring a mortician by periodically to collect the bodies. Otherwise, you can let it all play out on the TV monitors from the comfort of your own home. Now that, my friends, is reality television. Plenty of normal characters, and even a psychopath or two, grazed these pages.
A few of the more prominent ones were Kate Ballinger, Theresa Burke, Pam no last name , David Pilcher, and of course, Ethan Burke, who has a bit of the tragic hero in his blood.
But tragedy kept me flipping pages as trees and scrub brush and an abby or two went up in flames. I was a rubbernecker on this side of the road, thankful that I could keep right on driving, because there was no way in hell I planned to stop for this crazy train. As my eyes opened wide, the continued hallucinations nearly took my breath away. I received this book for free through NetGalley. Cross-posted at Robert's Reads Feb 11, Israt Zaman Disha rated it it was amazing.
Blake Crouch simply killed it. It is so awesomely intense. I had some complains about Pines but this book has fulfilled everything that is lacking in Pines and much more.
He left little questions at places and when I almost forgot about that little question, he revealed something big that bears warning of a big storm coming in the near future. And it ends in a very dangerous note that will force you to start the next book of the series right away. It's so awesome.
Know what I do when I am Wow!!! Know what I do when I am tensed? I bit my nails. And guess what? Now I have no nails to bit for The Last Town.

It wasn't that bad, but this one felt more like a whodunnit kind of book As for the murder view spoiler [you didn't have to be a genius to put Pam as the main sus So As for the murder view spoiler [you didn't have to be a genius to put Pam as the main suspect, five minutes after the body was found even if I did give Pilcher the benefit of a doubt.
Here, we know the big reveal that happened at the end and it could have quite easily been a bit of a stale novel with no surprises but it felt like the canvas was wiped clean and the author could do what he wanted with the little town and all its mysteries. This leads him to investigate everyone close to him and also those who he despises. This is a great follow up to the first novel, the style of writing is really crisp and allows the reader to zip through this and I really like the setting of Wayward Pines too and all its eeriness.
This one leaves off on a cliff-hanger showing that all actions have a reaction. View all 5 comments. Mar 14, Marianna Neal rated it really liked it Shelves: This series is going strong!
Diving right into the final book after this one. I'm still not too impressed with the characters, particularly with the protagonist, but the twists and turns of the story carried this book really well, just like they did with Pines.
