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…

    "Incredible, scary, suspenseful"

    Really well written and performed. Best suspense book I've heard in a long time. Couldn't stop listening- what is going on in Wayward Pines? Who are these people? All my guesses were wrong- and the story, as it unfolds will keep you on edge.

    Story
    "Excellent Sci-Fi/Horror/Thriller"

    Keeps you on your toes. The twist isn't completely unexpected but it's a great take on a somewhat common storyline. The characters, Ethan primarily, are very well detailed and developed. If you are following the tv show, it starts to differ a lot by the end of the book, the show is actually more mysterious but Ethan in the books is a must have better character.

    "Boring"

    I started watching the series on TV and thought it was amazing! Once I found out there were books, I felt the "I have to read" feeling kick in.

    .....but, after listening to the first 10 chapters, thinking it's going to get better, I couldn't take it anymore. I felt like it was boring and the narrator had a bland boring voice. I feel like the show is way better than the book....which is funny because it's usually the other way around.

    In conclusion, it was a waste of money.

    "Riveting story"

    This is the most fascinating story I've read in a long time. It starts out one way and than heads off in a completely different direction. So many twists and turns. In the end,it makes you wonder "what would you do? Fascinating read. I enjoyed it immensely.

    "Unexpected ending"

    The narrator, Paul Michael Garcia, is excellent.

    The story and character development is good. I was with Ethan throughout his entire ordeal. I wanted harm to visit nurse Pam, what a "B", and Sheriff Arnold Pope got what he deserved in the end. I can't write what I really want to without spoilers.

    There is a very important message that is forthcoming from this author and I agree with him 100%.

    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.

    "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!'

    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.
