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…

The suspense was very enjoyable. The story line was not predictable. It was a good read.
The main character.
The family coming together.
more reviews before I bought this book. Narration was fine, but the story so ridiculous that I suffered through it and didn't have the sense to stop listening.
Didn't realize the genre
I am an eBay seller who listens to approx. a book a day while taking & editing photos of my items. I love a good suspenseful mystery!
Not one to listen to books more than once but yes, this one would be worth a second listen.
Well written, great mystery, great suspense, perfect amount of 'confusion' without being confusing. I normally stay away from anything considered sci-fi but this book is REALLY good!
Excellent narrator, articulate, easy to decipher between characters, easy to listen to without being one bit annoying.
This was a strange work that rapidly disintegrated into a disorganized, implausible story,. It is padded with lengthy "chase" scenes that, like the story itself, go on and on with no apparent destination or purpose in mind. The characters were shallow caricatures of persons, while the plot was simplistic and sloppy. The work cried out for wholesale editing.
I tried my best to go with this book, but could not wait to cross the finish line, as it just became more annoying as time passed.
I wonder if "Crouch" is a pseudonym? If so, the actual author is fortunate not to have "Pines" tethered to his literary neck as an albatross, going forward.
Mr. Garcia did a good job reading this work. He handled different characters of different sexes and ages with aplomb. In fact, his reading carried me over several cringe-inducing passages of this book.
i had high hopes but this story went from mysterious to ridiculous - buy on sale, but don't waste a full credit.
Maybe to read, but not to listen to. Probably not - on both.
No. Nothing really happened for quite awhile. Just confusion and frustration.
I hate the way he does voices. All the women are dopey and have a lisp as if he's doing an impersonation of a very camp gay. Maybe all the women in this book really are that way. But it's irritating. Same with the old people.
I enjoyed this book. Super weird & there were times I almost gave up on it but surprisingly good in a weird, twisty, turn, what the heck's going on kind of way
The story was great and the reader was wonderful. Listened to all three in the trilogy and was hoping there would be another!
Enthralling, Imaginative, Awesome
It's a pretty original concept
The whole beginning, up until "the truth" came out.
Cannot wait until the 4th book comes out!
"All are welcome at Wayward Pines!"
I did like the idea of the story, but quite a few times it was a little slow going.
I thought his performance was ok. However he could have been a little more creative with some of the character's voices.
There are already 2 follow-up books to the Pines.
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 .
"Don't miss this one!"
Vivid. Imaginative. Terrifying.
Brave New World and 1984. An imaginative and frightening vision of a possible future;
I sincerely hope Blake Crouch has got it completely wrong!
'You can check out any time you like... but you can never leave!'
"A real must listen"
The best by far and I have listened to a lot. Loved it.
Watched films like this but not listened to a book like this.
Love listening to his voice, compare him to Sean Barrett
Yes WOW got this is good
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.
