I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    Story

    This was a book that was so captivating right from the start, but I had no idea where it was going for a long time! The book sucked me in, the narrator sucked me in, and I wanted to find out what the heck was going on! This book was way too interesting and puzzling to put down. When I finally got to the point where things were coming together, and we as the reader finally find out what is going on … things just fell into place like tumblers.

    The narration by Paul Michael Garcia was fantastic.

    Anyone who enjoys a good suspense, mystery, thriller, science fiction, fantasy story would likely enjoy the book. I know I did.

    I don’t want to tell too much about this book because it really would take away from it if you knew ahead of time. I thought the way I read it was best. I just read what was on the Audible website about it when it was on the one of the Daily Deals.

    Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: A device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionize the field of physics - the crowning achievement of a career. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. The Nobel Prize. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheaval sudden technological advances bring.

    Story

    Daniel Suarez out-did himself with Influx! What an amazing story. It has so many elements of science fiction and science fact, as well as science probable! The story is very intricate and the characters are so well developed.

    I don’t want to give away too much but suffice it to say that people (including our hero, Jon Grady) who have invented or discovered disruptive scientific technologies are disappearing and or being killed by what appears to be a group of religious nut cases who are apparently killing people brilliant people who are on the cusp of a major breakthrough in technology around the world. There is also a secret governmental organization created in the 50s/60s that has something to do with all of this as well.

    I totally enjoyed this book! It may be a long book, but it was so well written I hardly noticed. It was very hard to put down!

    Thanks so much Daniel Suarez! I hope you have your hands in the making of the movie so they do it well. I can’t wait to see it!

    I listened to the audiobook version of this book from Audible and it is well worth getting!

    Jeff Gurner did an amazing job on the narration of all of Daniel Suarez' books so far. I can't wait to listen to the rest! Since I have already read the dead tree version of Daemon, Freedom(TM) is next for me!

    Now a modern classic, as gripping in its tautly plotted action as it is penetrating in its exploration of a criminal mind, it tells the shocking tale of a young man who will stop at nothing--not even murder--to get where he wants to go. For he has dreams; plans. He also has charm, good looks, sex appeal, intelligence. And he has a problem. Her name is Dorothy; she loves him, and she's pregnant. The solution may demand desperate measures.

    Story

    What do three college age daughters of a copper magnate and a handsome young man have in common? Could it have something to do with another handsome young man who doesn’t give up! And who is whom?

    This is an intricately woven thriller! And no stone is left unturned.

    I have to say, I read this book every free minute I could find, and then some!

    I will be looking at other books by Ira Levin. He has become one of my favorite storytellers.

    This was one of several of exceptional books by Ira Levin. Movie lovers will know his works – including this one A Kiss Before Dying as well as, Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives, etc. He is also very well known for his award winning play, Deathtrap. Levin’s best-known play is Deathtrap, which holds the record as the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway and brought Levin his second Edgar Award. In 1982, it was made into a film starring Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine.
