      1. DailyNeeds

        I am totally mesmerized n bowled out by @blakecrouch1. Finished #thelasttown in less than 24 hours. An incredible pageturner. Never read anything like the #WaywardPines Trilogy. Total #paisawasool. The vision of the author..and the sheer magnitude of the plot is just out of the world.👍👍😎

        It’s gripping and couldn’t put down kind of novel. But, I felt it was too much gore… I mean everything it’s not reqd to tell that abbies are eating gut or eating live without killing…I don’t know if it’s my observation, but most author end up putting lot of gore in their 3rd novel… probably to add to story or what… Not sure…All said, I still loved the series. And finished all 3 novels within a week… Wish the author would come up with 4th one…

        Loved this Wayward Pines Triology. Seems like theres really another world out there – i mean its so real… the characters. Lovely book.

      5. Kunal

        This was the fastest paced of the three books in the pines series. Most thrilling of the three. But doesn’t come anywhere close to Dark Matter, or even Recurssion for that matter.

      6. Mani teja

        The book was in pretty good condition and quality was great too

      7. Bharath Ramakrishnan

        The third book in the series, and I wanted to get to it as quickly as possible after reading the second book. This is another page turner, and ends with a great twist.It is tough to write reviews of this series without spoilers. Ethan Burke is now the Sherriff of Wayward Pines. It is clearly no ordinary town and he wants the residents to know the truth of the town itself, their relationships and the dangers outside. David Pilcher, who has conceptualized the town and literally runs it is not happy and is determined to get back to his ways of running the town even if it means putting the residents at grave risk.Ethan has turned the town upside down after taking over as Sheriff, but isn’t sure if he has been reckless. He also has relationship issues to deal with between himself, his wife Theresa, son Ben, his ex-boss Adam & ex-partner at work Kate. More than anything, it is not clear if the town & residents can survive.The pace is great, but there is a lot of violence, probably inevitable for the story line. I liked the way the book ended with an intelligent twist.My rating: 4.25 / 5.

      8. Deepak Lakhwani

        First book was amazing and had lot of sci fi and some voilence/gore. Second book was some sci fi and little more violence and gore. Third was the tasteless zombie climax with all violence and gore with zero sci fi in it. I hated reading it. Can’t believe I gave 5 stars to pine and the series ends with this 2 star book. Missed opportunity at best!

        Planet of the AbbiesWhoa, man! You know, I don’t think I’ve ever felt the kind of horror reading a book I felt reading the conclusion of this kick-ass series. Oh, my goodness – seriously, if you’re even the least bit squeamish, this one is going to give you bad dreams. It was awesome!First of all, I want to start by saying that if you are considering reading this without having read the first two stories in the Wayward pines trilogy – STOP! This is a story already in progress. I’m certainly not saying this story wouldn’t hold your interest by its lonesome, but you’re really missing out on the foundation that leads up to the chaotic events that are taking place in this story. It is your call, by all means – I mean, maybe you just like to read about people getting eviscerated and eaten alive by mutants in the middle of a residential street and don’t care about the actual story – but all I’m saying is that you may come into this book not really understanding the full picture.And the picture is big. Most of you wanting to read this have probably read the other two books before this one, so I’m sorry to the people reading this review who haven’t because it’s going to be a bit hard not to tread on spoiler territory for the previous books while reviewing this one, but I will do the best I can not to.In the much anticipated conclusion of this trilogy, Ethan Burke is picking up where he left off in the last book, Wayward. He’s just told the residents of Wayward Pines the truth about their dire circumstances and the fate of the human race. David Pilcher, the self-proclaimed, lord and savior of their human race, isn’t too happy about this and in the face of Ethan’s defiance after giving him a leadership position as a sheriff for their perfect little haven, he unleashes hell on his ungrateful children and literally opens the gates to let the mutant Abbies to come and have their bloody, violent way with them.This one was messy, you guys. Those of you who are not new to Blake’s show already know how he gets down in his stories. I will spare the more squeamish readers ( I know – it’s a bit too late for that), but the images in here are borderline traumatizing. Nobody was free from the wrath of the Abbies – men, women, and children were fair game in this. As disturbing as that might be for most people to stomach, this is what makes Mr. Blake Crouch a hard-hitter and I like that. I’ve said it time and time again, this author is not afraid to shock his readers. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not getting a play by play of some poor child being ripped apart, but in the overall violent scene of things, the picture of the carnage and the scale of the victims is very much clear. So I do want to give the heads up, if you don’t like gore and violence – straight up, this one isn’t for you and neither is anything else written by this author, for that matter.I loved this series as a whole, hands down and I heard it was supposed to debut on television over the summer and I’m sick that I might have missed it (unless it’s still going – God, I hope so!), but I do have one small beef and it was with the ending, which I obviously won’t share here, but I really sort of feel like Mr. Blake Crouch sort of left a little more something to be desired. Did he really mean to leave us in limbo like that about the future of the Pines residents? There was an air of uncertainty involved once they learned of another threat to their already strained survival, but was there no better way to face the situation?Alright – obviously, you guys wanting to read this don’t know the answer. But I really don’t know if I can call the conclusion to this a conclusion. I hate when shows do it and now Blake is doing it – he’s ending this series on a cliffhanger, which is a bit of a letdown for those of us who really was expecting some sort of miracle solution (This author isn’t a stranger to miracles, you know.). I suppose a story has to end where it ends, though. But the way it ended…who really knows if it’s the end?Blake, if you’re reading this – one more sequel, please!

        One Hell of an EndingObviously, if you have not read Pines and Wayward you should most definitely not read this book (or this review) because major spoilers will follow FOR THOSE BOOKS.Okay, that said, this is something of a very bitter-sweet ending to the series … for a whole slew of reasons, not all of which I can go into because, duh, spoilers. What I can say is that, in general … a lot of people die in this book. If you read all the way to the end of Wayward (Book 2), then you probably expected this in some fashion. Not going to beat around the bush on this, the abbies get into Wayward Pines and all hell breaks loose.First, the pluses: this book is pretty intense. Pines (Book 1) was awesome because of the mind-blowing twist ending. Wayward (Book 2) was something of a slow oddity, sort of the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in this trilogy. The Last Town doesn’t exactly revist what made Pines good (how could it? That’s kind of a one-trick pony literary ploy), but it does go in a new and, frankly, stomach-churningly horrific direction. Word of warning: this book is graphic. People die … VIOLENTLY. In this regard, this book is something of a stark departure from the more temporal topsy-turvy mystery of the previous two books, and instead, has gone more to a visceral slasher fest. Still, the book manages to convey the elements of absolute hopelessness and despair and horror that this kind of a situation would entail, and do it quite well. And in general Blake Crouch manages to skillfully weave together excellent pacing, descriptions, characterizations, and emotion in quick, easy to read but thrilling story of survival at any cost against impossible odds.There are downsides to this book. While most of the plot elements setup by the previous two books are wrapped up by the end of the book, some of these things are just not done so … skillfully or satisfactorily. I can’t really give examples without spoilers … but let’s just say that the book could have used another 50 pages or so to maybe flesh out some of these resolutions, especially regarding a rather front-and-center relationship snafu that goes all over the place before just being … eh, resolved. What’s there is good, but what could have been there would have been better.INTERLUDE: — I have complaints regarding the nature of the abbies that I have to voice, that are part of the reason for the 4 star review. Overall, the nature of the abbie’s make no sense from a biological viewpoint. We’re told they descend from humans, but there’s one problem: genomes don’t just “degrade”. That’s the central hook on which the reason for ANY OF this exists, but it’s stupid. There is no such thing as “de-evolution”. Evolution only goes one way, and that’s forward, constantly adapting to the current environmental circumstances. In that sense, humans won’t ever “de-evolve” into something like the abbies because the only way that would ever happen is through some sort of massive environmental cataclysm that created a huge shortage of resources (you get blind, albino fish / lizards / bugs because they live in caves, or you get dwarfs on islands due to restrictions on available calories). But the Wayward Pines series never reveals anything that would suggest that anything like that happened. Okay, fine, let’s say the abbies exist … they wouldn’t exist in those numbers, in clustered swarms of thousands. That’s not how predators work. They would have exhausted the food chain in a matter of a century or less, creating a huge ecological collapse, and all but extinquishing themselves in the process. In fact, I’m fairly certain that this rule is so solid that biologists have a formula that predicts the number of predators in a given biosphere based upon the number of available prey. Further, why do these creatures have translucent skin? And no fur? How are they surviving daily sub-freezing temperatures? How are they not getting cooked alive with UV radiation if they have no melanin in their skin? One or two of these things I could take, but it’s like Blake Crouch read a book on biology, then did THE EXACT OPPOSITE of everything that book taught him about biology — INTERLUDE FINISHEDAnyway … rant over. The book eventually comes to an ending that pretty clearly concludes the series … and I have to say it is quite bittersweet. It was something of a minor twist ending for me, a sort of final call-back to the element that started this whole plot idea. Can’t say much more without ruining it for you, but it is quite good, very appropriate, and almost tear-jerking. I hated it, I liked it, I wished there was more (there probably won’t be) … but it was good.
