Prepare for Blake Crouch’s ‘Wayward Pines’



Written by: David Gatward

This is a new one for me, and judging on the blurb alone I’m going to dive right in, because it sounds fantastic. Check this:

Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. Nestled amidst picture-perfect mountains, the idyllic town is a modern-day Eden…except for the electrified fence and razor wire, snipers scoping everything 24/7, and the relentless surveillance tracking each word and gesture.

None of the residents know how they got here. They are told where to work, how to live, and who to marry. Some believe they are dead. Others think they’re trapped in an unfathomable experiment. Everyone secretly dreams of leaving, but those who dare face a terrifying surprise.

Sounds brilliant. And judging by his back catalogue, Blake can seriously write. Not only did he publish his first two novels within five years of graduation, his Wayward Pines series is currently being produced as a TV show by M. Night Shyamalan, airing on Fox in 2014.
