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…

    "Better than the show"

    Solid performance, good story, loved the details... Wished there was a lot more though. For the show to properly reflected the story in this book, it would have to be on HBO or Showtime, not FOX. I throughly enjoyed listening to it, but after a total runtime of 8hrs and change, I was surprised to learn how little ground was covered when compared to the story I know from the series. This book is little more then an introduction to a much bigger story.

    This book was exceptionally well written. It kept me totally on the edge of my seat even though I have watched the first season of the TV series.

    Story
    "Instantly interesting"

    Some books require a "warm up" before they really catch your attention... Whether it's getting a feel for the narrator, or the plot itself. Not so with this book. The weird and creepy "something isn't right" vibe starts right away, sucks you in, and never lets go. This book is like a Stepford community meets Jason Bourne meets X-Files. Give it a whirl, if you like action/mystery... I'm glad I did!!!! The "woah" moment happens somewhere in the middle, and the answers the main character, Ethan, is seeking are obviously revealed at the end... And you might be expecting something like it, but definitely, definitely, not exactly as it unfolds! I'm not sure I *loved* the end, but it definitely caught me off guard and intrigued me enough to download the other two books in the series!

    "What? Excuse me,,,,,huh? How..???"

    Just a few of the words you'll utter as you read along. This one keeps on the edge, not just on the edge of your seat, but on the edge of your mind.

    "Reminds me of the book by Margaret Atwood ..."

    This book seems like a cross between the Maze Runner and Margaret Atwood's book called The Heart Goes Last.

    Wayward Pines is a little slow going at first, but stick with it. When one man gives up his freedom for his family, one government conspiracy, and cryogenics all make for a good read.

    "Confusing. Disturbing. Bad."

    The book is never ending pain frustration and torture with no real clues as to why the main character is in the predicament he is in. The answers near the end are just stupid. I hung in for HOURS waiting for the book to make sense. To have some entertainment or redeeming value. It didn't.

    "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.

    "A different kind of dystopia"

    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.
