Read in one sitting. Felt a lot like a zombie novel - which really isn't my cup of tea. Appreciated the ending though; that was probably the best way to deal with the scenario which had been set up.

Fantastic book part of a fantastic series. One of my all time favorites! The epilogue was maddening, but somehow it made me love it even more.

Sometimes I pretend while doing heated, cardio, power, sculpt, core, yoga in the morning that I'm actually training for the apocalypse. However after watching Back to the Future with my daughter last night I realize I look more like a weird, old, out of shape dude in a 1980's aerobics class. Apparently I'm going to keep on training though both in body and mind because I can't get enough of this genre or the yoga. I am not only shocked at the surprise ending in Wayward Pines but am very hopeful this will turn into a tetralogy. It seems to me Blake left it little too open for another tale or mayhap he just wants to reader to use her imagination and decide the fate of humanity on her own.

Great conclusion to the trilogy. It certainly left me wanting more. The one sentence epilogue :o. Excellent.
