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…

    "almost there"

    a great story with a glitch on science and psychology but entertaining. I got disengaged in the middle and was almost more interested in the military side story but by the end I got hooked again. I might get the next book if I'm still interested in a week. the one part I didn't like is the town's collective reaction to a certain event. (don't want to spoil the story here) that was more than unrealistic week and unnecessary, although I'm sure many would find it entertaining like unnecessary nudity or violence in movies

    "hard to start"

    The beginning was very hard for me to get into, but once I got past the first half hour I was hooked!

    A good entertaining listen. The story was a bit predictable as I feel there are a lot of movies and other books with similar stories.

    "amazing story"

    it's so interesting and so different from the show but it's got more action to it more suspense and the main character really is a strong man. I'm enjoying the series pretty amazing book can't wait to read more of it!

    Not a new story but I enjoyed how it was crafted. I enjoyed this more than the TV show as the ideas were more complete.

    "Could have been"

    This story started out promising but got bogged down with so many chase scenes that i hardly ended up caring. i listened until the end only because ppl said the ending was a unique idea. while that was true, there are just so many better ideas out there and better writing- Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam series, Neal Stephen's SevenEves to name a few. This is B-grade at best and C-grade most of the time.

    "Simmering suspense"

    Good story, well written and keeps you speculating until the truth is revealed. I really enjoyed this novel and will get book 2.Touches of 'The Wicker Man' and 'The X Files' plausible characters and fast paced. Well worth a punt .

    Story
    "Don't miss this one!"
    If you could sum up Pines in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid. Imaginative. Terrifying.


    What other book might you compare Pines to, and why?

    Brave New World and 1984. An imaginative and frightening vision of a possible future;
    I sincerely hope Blake Crouch has got it completely wrong!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    'You can check out any time you like... but you can never leave!'

    Story
    "Gripping story. Keeps you on your toes."
    Any additional comments?

    This is a terrific book, gripping from the very start and very clever. It keeps you guessing. As the story progresses it is hard to pin it down to a specific genre - at some point it seems to be a psychological thriller but then maybe it is a crime mystery or maybe a horror or even a scifi? I looked for these audiobooks after enjoying the TV series based on the books so, before I started I already knew the big secret 'reveal' of the plot but this didn't spoil it for me. It is similar enough to the TV series to have the same haunting atmosphere but different enough to still be fresh. The narrator does a pretty good job reflecting the tension and mystery. A little gory for the squeamish but I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone looking for something exciting, compelling and a bit out of the ordinary.

    "All are welcome at Wayward Pines!"
    What did you like best about Pines? What did you like least?

    I did like the idea of the story, but quite a few times it was a little slow going.


    What aspect of Paul Michael Garcia’s performance might you have changed?

    I thought his performance was ok. However he could have been a little more creative with some of the character's voices.


    Do you think Pines needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There are already 2 follow-up books to the Pines.

    I love dystopic fiction and this trilogy was entertaining. The premise was refreshing and I'd say they were very easy and quite compelling to listen to.
