    I agree. They've been excellent.

    Did you listen to Ghosts of the Ostfront? I've listened to that a couple times since it was so spectacular.

    For those that enjoy the "separated from society" / "post-apocalyptic" variety of books, I just finished a nice, easy read (enjoyable).

    Wayward Pines - Blake Crouch
    (It's a trilogy and I just finished the first book)

    Secret Service agent gets stuck in an isolated Montana town and can't get out.
    Yes, this sort of topic has been done before, but the author works some good original concepts in.

    Similar to: Twin Peaks {show}, The Silo Trilogy (Wool/Shift/Dust), The Passage (Trilogy)

    I rarely read fiction but the thought of isolated Montana towns intrigues me. I have visited several. Is the town fictitious or an actual extant town, such as Lima, Dillon or Basin?

    I'm pretty sure a town of Wayward Pines is fictitious, but they do tie it into Boise... and Seattle.
    The author credits Twin Peaks (a fun show from 1990 to watch on Netflix) as his inspiration.

    It's nice because you can get the through the book in probably 6-8 hours.

    And... if you like it... the other show & two trilogies would be right up your alley. (though, those are much longer reads, per book)

    Thanks Pengwin. I agree that Wayward Pines is not a real Montana town, but Boise is my favourite American city.

    Just finished the Wayward Pines trilogy (Blake Crouch).
    Pretty good, not mind-blowing... but a pretty good easy read. 3.5/5 stars.
