Publisher's Summary

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…

    "Trippy story"

    Very interesting with all the twists and turns...kept me guessing. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding Ethan and I wanted to punch "Nurse Pam" myself a few times. Really good story. I'd recommend reading.

    Story
    "Needs more explanation"
    Would you try another book from Blake Crouch and/or Paul Michael Garcia?

    I like the author's style and I really enjoyed Paul Michael Garcia's presentation of the material. My biggest concern was the unanswered questions. To list them would give up too much of the plot, so let's just say, he needed to explain his science better. It was the equivalent of I recognized there was a problem and I fixed it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Perhaps. I know it was made into a television series, I plan to watch season 1.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the other two books in the series and still feel that the author leaves too much up in the air.

    "I loved it!"

    Just excellent! Great performance great story!! I definitely liked the book more that the few eps I saw on tv. As soon as I saw it was a series I ran and downloaded the 2nd one. This kinda stuff is right up my alley. Thought provoking science fiction. Usually I just listen to self help or non fiction book and only read stories like this but boy did this hold my attention!

    "Totally engrossing book!"

    I had no idea of the story when I got this book - beyond the bare minimal synopsis and reviews. I was happily impressed with how well written and engrossing this book was. Was sorry to hear it end. :-(

    The story is full of mysterious quirks and seemingly impossible situations. Yet everything is revealed and explained, so that there are no loose ends (okay, I can think of ONE, but that's pretty impressive).

    On the order of a Twilight Zone story, but on a much larger scale. It's just as well written and presented as those great old tales. The narrator is excellent, creating, along with the writing, a very visual and mysterious - but believable tale. The writing and the narrator make an excellent pairing.

    I've learned since listening to the book that there was a television version that went beyond the perimeter of the book into a few seasons, but the book is certainly a terrific stand-alone story that keeps you wondering what the heck is going on. The characters are well developed, and all the interrelated goings on come together in a very well thought out ending.

    If you enjoyed the old Twilight Zone programs, I think you're in for a very pleasant listening experience. This is absolutely the best of the ScFi genre that I've listened to.

    "Great story"

    I enjoyed this book very much. I did take one star off for the flashback scenes, there were just a few too many and too much time spent on them for my likes. I got it that he was a war prisoner and was tortured, I just didn't need that much of it. I don't like it when authors keep going back with flashbacks in books, I understand they are looking for filler but I would rather have more current content. The story was good though and kept me guessing, and I really liked that.

    "Fans of Lost and the TwiIght Zone take note"

    Great mystery story with a SciFi twist. Creatively mixing genres, Crouch creates a compelling narrative well performed by Paul Michael Garcia. I see why Fox picked this up as a show. I want to read the series before jumping into the show, which I have yet to see.

    "Lots of twists"

    This book has so many twists it wasn't until the end that everything came together. Best read this year.

    Story
    "Brilliant! I'm hooked."
    What did you love best about Pines?

    The premise of the story is very novel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pines?

    Pretty much the last three chapters.


    What does Paul Michael Garcia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a fantastic job in bringing this story to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually the first part of the book was slow and I skipped some chapters. But the second half of the book was great.

    Story
    "Bizarre with intriguing twists"
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    Pines was a great read, I kept wondering how the author would pull it together. Details didn't add up but I was completely sucked in.


    What about Paul Michael Garcia’s performance did you like?

    Narrator was able to create both like able personalities and a few that were despicably detestable.

    Story
    "Nothing is ever as it seems"

    I will try to write this review to allow those who saw the miniseries will get a good idea of how the two compare with out giving away spoilers to those who are reading this review to try to decide whether or not to read. Here goes...

    I am having a love/hate relationship with Blake Crouch, his stories either captivate me or leave me a bit unsatisfied. In this case, I love him. I, like many others, first heard of him after watching the Wayward Pines miniseries on TV. If you are in that boat let me assure you this book holds up, however the story is a bit more graphic than you might think.

    If you are knew to Blake Crouch imagine this...You are in a bad car accident and wake up in a town you have never been to before. A place trapped in time, A place with no internet or news, where no one speaks of the past...and everyone lives in a Stepford like bliss; what would you do? This story examines exactly that scenario and takes a look into the hearts of men to look at what we do when the world ends.
