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…

    Story
    "Interesting, but. . ."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a very interesting plot that moved quite skillfully, yet we wonder sometimes about the characters behaving in the manner in which they have been portrayed. Their decisions are rather awkward and unbelievable.

    Story
    "Interesting enough to check out the next book"

    It's an interesting plot- might be spoiler alert worthy... Although I'm not sure if it can hold on for three books. It is similar to other post apocalyptic series but from the description that wasn't what I was expecting.

    "Better than the TV Show"

    I had to read this book after I started watching the TV series. Another book that's better than the show but still closely follows the show and gives you more insight as to what's going on!

    "Great book"

    Extremely well written. This book paints a picture in your mind and you can really visualize the surrounding landscape. The story is intense and not at all what I expected. Half detective story and a little science fiction wrapped in one.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The concept was great but the writing and development of both the characters and the story, itself was sadly lacking. There was too much focus on the violence and not enough on fleshing out of the other elements. I love mystery/thrillers and also light scifi and this book didn't satisfy on any level.


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

    Again, I was very disappointed. There was so much potential for something really interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I checked out this book because of the TV series, which didn't make sense to me. I was hoping that the book would resolve the issues in the dramatized version but it only amplified them.

    "Enjoyable after a slow start"

    Several unseen twists and turns in the plot. It took me a bit to get involved with this story but once past the 1/2 way point I was committed to the plot and enjoying the twists.

    Story
    "It's More than You Expect"

    For me, it falls into the category of the ABC series LOST. The tale gets more complicated and interesting the further you get into it.

    If you've been watching the Wayward Pines TV program on FOX and you've been enthralled, read/hear the inspiration of the tale by its author by enjoying the book, too. There are some some differences between the book and the TV program, however, the main events and messages of the story are present.

    The book ends in a Michael Crichton quote, which was not surprising. It was obvious that Mr. Crouch has been inspired by his books and messages. If you like Crichton, you'll like Crouch.
