Why did I try reading Wayward Pines? Because I couldn't get home in time to see the show. And of course, I read it without knowing a thing about the story except it's weird. So as far as I'm concerned it's Twilight Zone meets, Stepford Wives, meets Creepshow, meets everything else trippy you can think of. Now I'm so glad I choose to read it instead of watching it in segments. I was never shocked or grossed but I got really angry at how THEY could turn on someone and I'd personally like to kick Nurse Pam's butt! What kept me reading was the excellent pacing, I could never just stop reading. BTW: There should be a limit how many times a character can be hit in the head and not drop dead.
So, on to #2
