Pines | [Blake Crouch]

Pines

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…

    "Creative, imaginative, intriguing story"

    I had no idea what this book was about, other than the premise, which didn't seem very interesting. This story is so much more. I guess I would label it a sci-fi suspenseful mystery. Now I'm eager for the next book in this series.

    "Not bad, but not worth the hype"

    Decent, a good time waster but can get boring in parts.

    Spoilers




    If the Truman show took place at the end of the world.

    Story
    "Very odd"

    Much flowery language over hours of a stick like man fighting for his life against seemingly evil people. Finally, the end and in Ayn Rand fashion we told that only a few are capable of understanding the real world and need to be govrned by a strong hand. Really awful story, well delivered. Go ahead, skip to the last chapter , and move on to a good story or read some in depth philosophy ...I don't see much point to this author's.

    Story
    "This story is OK. The trilogy is not."

    The premise and the revelation of what this town is about is very interesting. You might find it interesting too. But don't bother with the other two books in this trilogy. The last book especially will just make you mad. Really, it's just the missing ending to book two. And the ONE SENTENCE epilogue in that third book explains nothing.

    Very unsatisfying.

    The reader is not bad. That's the best I can say.

    "Good story, suspense, twists and an unexpected end"

    Took some time to get used to the readers voice but if you push through he does a superb job.

    Almost the entire book I was trying to figure out what was happening, left so confused chapter after chapter. I thought maybe it was a psychological thriller. It kept me going, wanting to understand what in the world was happening and it did not disappoint.

    I would recommend this book and would love to see it made into a movie.

    Story
    "Bizarre and disturbing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes science fiction.


    What could Blake Crouch have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    An indication in the summary or genre the plot of this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Aggravation and disappointment. Abuse of a human being is not enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    I am always searching for new authors and fun books. I rely on the summary and genre to determine if it is worth a purchase. The summary and genre fail to indicate what this was about.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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
    "A real must listen"
    Where does Pines rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best by far and I have listened to a lot. Loved it.


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

    Watched films like this but not listened to a book like this.


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

    Love listening to his voice, compare him to Sean Barrett


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes WOW got this is good


    Any additional comments?

    Can`t wait to listen to the next book in the trilogy

    "Love this book. Well read, good story."

    Brilliant book. Had me wondering what on earth was going on right until the end. Quite suspenseful and I found myself sneaking in some reading at lunch and whenever I could. I've got the next one but I'm rationing it out! :o)

    Very well read as well.

    "Remarkable and Outstanding!"

    Remarkably eerie, and an astounding and compelling account on a story, that is written without too much mention of people or of any place; just teleporting from weird scene to another. Another added bonus for future writers, to tap in. Worth listening!
