“Yesterday is history. 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”


This is the second book in the Wayward Pines series by Blake Crouch. You can read my review on the first book here and the second book here.


A brief recap on the two books before I dive into the awesomeness of Book 3. Some guy named David Pilcher predicted that the human species would be extinct in years to come and in order to preserve the human race he selected people at random and placed them in a suspended animation for 2000 years plus. Or would I say he pretty much kidnapped them. Now Wayward Pines is the only community with humans on earth.


Book 3 was action packed honestly. In Book 1 and 2, none of the people in Wayward Pines were aware of what was happening or where they were. They were told what to do, how to live, when to eat and pretty much living a robotic lifestyle. If you asked too many questions, you would be reckoned (in other words, killed).


I really enjoyed Book 3 because I couldn’t drop the book down. I really wanted to know what would happen to the people. The abbys (a.k.a aberrations) got in to the town because of that evil and heartless man. I was like NOOOOO WAYY!!!!! like how would they survive honestly. In one word, Book 3 was about survival of the fittest. 


"Reading this book only makes me wonder how dope the movie would be. The author Blake has a strong imagination and I have to give him Kudos for thinking about things that affect the humanity"

I quoted in my previous review and I have actually started watching the series which unfortunately did not turn out well for me. I mean I knew this before I started. I hate reading a book and then watching the movie adaptation of it; i can literally say the dialogue before it happens. The beginning of the series started off this way but then the difference was very clear. I mean it had to be right. So I guess it wasn't that bad



Again, Blake with his next line writing. I guess its high time I get used to it right. My views on Blakes writing has not changed for this trilogy.



The story line surrounding the trilogy is quite descriptive, imaginative and action packed. Let me tell you a little something  - I actually don’t know what to write again, read the Book 1 and Book 2 reviews.



I still don't have character that I could connect to.


Have you read this book? I really want to know your thoughts


In conclusion, PINES gets
