Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Wayward Pines, the last town.
Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrived in Wayward Pines, Idaho, three weeks ago. In this town, people are told who to marry, where to live, where to work. Their children are taught that David Pilcher, the town's creator, is god. No one is allowed to leave; even asking questions can get you killed.
But Ethan has discovered the astonishing secret of what lies beyond the electrified fence that surrounds Wayward Pines and protects it from the terrifying world beyond. It is a secret that has the entire population completely under the control of a madman and his army of followers, a secret that is about to come storming through the fence to wipe out this last, fragile remnant of humanity.
Blake Crouch's electrifying conclusion to the Wayward Pines series - now a major television event series debuting in 2015 on FOX.

Book Two was the Actual Ending

Book One and Two were great books and I wrote glowing reviews on them. This is not a terrible book, but there are no mysteries solved. This is an action packed result of book two and one. This has lots of gore and violence as is a trademark of Blake Crouch. I did not like it as much, as it lost it's Twilight Zone, Outer Limits feel to it. This is an average book made a little better cause you know the history after reading the first two books.

The narrator has a soft voice with a lilt at the end of his voice, which I am not sure I even noticed in the first two well written books. It was distracting in this one.

EARLY REVIEWS
I must answer to another reviewers' rant. First, what most people do not realize is that some customers get a crack at books before others. It only happened to me once. A couple of years ago, while on the site I got a text from audible, about the amount of reviews I had written and how that was helpful to others and then they offered a list of books that had not been released yet and I got to pick one for free.

As Jim The Impatient, I feel strongly that my time and money are valuable. I feel an author should have something to say in each and every chapter. I loath a writer who fills his books with fillers and boring nothings, just to make his book longer. If I do not finish a book I usually will mention that in the review, so you know and you can decide.

To me negative reviews are more important then flowery reviews. I want to know before I spend my money what I am in for. The reviewer should try to not be hateful, but list why he/she was not happy. The consumer is the most important. It is there money. I do not follow people who love everything they listen to or hate everything, I just want honesty. I work very hard on my reviews to give you a feeling of how I felt while listening to the book, so then you can decide based on my review and others. I trust you to write an honest review and will read several reviews, leaning harder on those I follow, who have proven that there tastes are similar to mine. Yea, you can get your money back, but I am a big boy and if the reviews and summary are honest and I still don't like the book, I just buck up and take it. I have been a member for years and I think I have returned two books out of hundreds I have bought.

TWO/THREE star review within 3 hours ? RIDICULOUS

Any additional comments?

Not trying to harp on this ONCE again, but this trend of people POORLY rating audiobooks that came out less than 2-3 hours ago is RIDICULOUS! Not only is it UNFAIR & MISLEADING to the publishers, the Audible site, the author (likely trying to support themselves financially)...but MOST importantly, us the CONSUMERS.

I listen to around 4-5 audiobooks from Audible PER week, so I understand getting a DUD of an audiobook now and then. With Audible's No-Hassle Return Poiicy in effect, there is NO reason to poorly review a book based simply on first impressions, and that you have NOT completed (since cramming a 6+ hour audiobook into 1-2 hours is impossible last time I checked).

If you are like myself, the most IMPORTANT aspect of whether I use a hard earned credit on an audiobook, is BASED on the REVIEWS...There is a reason Audible's rating sytem is starred in 3 distinct areas; to allow a FULL and knowledged review of the ENTIRE production. There is NO star-rating category for anything like "first minute impressions" or "How good was the INTRO" lol. If you dont like the book after an hour, FINE. If you know the narrator isn't great early on, FINE. But don't come handing out ONE-STAR ratings in categories you HAVE ZERO ground to give out...you MIGHT be able to rate the "perfomance" but your creidbility to rate the Overall & Story categories is NULL in any case...because you did NOT finish the BOOK!

FYI - As to NOT be partial in my rating of this title, I will update and provide a FULL REVIEW once I have completed this title. But something had to be said about the unfair, early reviews posted for so many new books lately :)
