The truth has been revealed and all hell has been unleashed. Where do the residents and the "rulers" of Wayward Pines go from here? ( )

So, in my review for the second book in this series, I said

"Oh...wait...no, this isn't the Hunger Games, this is Wayward Pines.

Does that mean that I can't predict that the third and final book will be about Ethan leading the charge against the evil ruling class and ultimately triumphing with the help of a person who was once a friend but who was turned by the leaders and then found a way to redeem himself?"


Pretty much nailed it.

Really, I became bored with this series as soon as the main mystery was solved at the end of the first book. The second book was just a drag. I can say that this final book in the series zipped along because it was virtually non-stop action (until it wasn't at the end, and turned into a soppy love-quadrangle).

It's just that...well, this book held no surprises. The people coming back drove the plot exactly as I thought they would. The people who died were pretty much exactly who I predicted would die. The overall story was as I thought. The ticking clock was what I'd guessed. And the ending was too.

I'm not that smart. I'm not patting myself on the back. It's just that this is predictable, don't-have-to-think-that-hard writing, and that both bores me and pisses me off.

Glad I'm done with it. ( )

Ethan tells the residents the truth, and Pilcher freaks out, shutting down the town's protection. Ethan is then left with the responsibility to serve, protect and preserve, as is the policeman's creed. Unfortunately, the odds are badly against him. I did not care for the return of Hassler from his wanderings, and the resulting marital discord nor the back and forth between the present and Pilcher's planning/staffing of Wayward Pines, which was distracting. However, I liked the ending, which was unexpected. ( )

That's the end?!?! But...but...I need more. MORE I TELL YOU. ( )

If you were promised a place in an idyllic small town, but you had a rigid set of rules and little personal autonomy, would you take it? If you knew end of the world was coming and you were guaranteed to survive, but you had to give up your freedom, would you be okay with that? "The Last Town" explores these issues and is a fitting conclusion to the Wayward Pines trilogy. How much value to you place on freedom and autonomy and how much would you give for guaranteed survival. Can we live and be happy without room for personal growth, knowing that growth often comes through conflict. Crouch's series is an imaginative exploration of a post-apocalyptic world in which humans are no longer the dominate species. The series is part mystery, part action/adventure, and part sci-fi. It's characters are well developed and the plot is intriguing as he deals with issues of power and authority, survival and freedom, and stagnation and personal growth. His vision of the future and the way the plot develops keeps you reading and the pages turn quickly as you strive to find out what happens next. I have not been disappointed with any of his books to date and this one certainly lives up to expectations and beyond. ( )
