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…

    "Great Suspense, With A Dash Of Sci-Fi"
    Any additional comments?



    (This is the same review for the series)

    After watching two episodes of the series I wanted to know what was going on so I ordered this book, and it didn't take long to lock in the rest of the series (So far) because I was hooked very fast. This author can take the reader on a great roller coaster ride as you plow through the story.

    This story is quite a bit different than the made for prime time TV version. It's far more intense and far more violent, but also the kind of story that keeps you either reading or listening until you're done. As a trucker this series helped chew up a lot of road.

    My only complaint about the series is that it is a series. In reality it's one book made into three books. If you read or listen to the first book, then you're going to want to continue the story with the next two. If someone reads the second or third book first....they're not really stand alone stories. So do yourself a favor and just get all three because once you start the first.....IT'S THE LAW!!!!!!

    "Highly recommend!!"

    Suspense, mystery, action, good writing, this book has it all! Great surprise ending with a combination of sci-fi and The Twilight Zone, yet perfectly plausible. Ready for Book 2!

    "Startling ending"

    I can't say I enjoyed this book, the protagonist whined about pain and discomfort over and over until I almost quit listening. The plot however took a twist that I didn't see coming and the overall point of the book is interesting.

    "Watching and Reading"

    I'm watching and reading Wayward Pines at the same time. I was compelled to pickup the first book because I'm really liking the miniseries on Fox. I don't usually read the book after I watch the show, but for some reason, I wanted something easy and fast to read for the summer. The first book is not disappointing. The show is pretty close to the first book. I don't have any doubt that I will finish the series before the finale. I'm starting on the second book next. I'm enjoying my summer so far with the "Pines."

    "Just didn't like the story"

    The book was fine. I realized half way through the book, that I was done with the crazy town and wanted the plot to move on and then I realized the town was the entire plot of the story. You only understand the town at the end ( very end) and then though everything was explained satisfactorily, I couldn't imagine wanting to read any other books about this. I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone. It was fine but there are so many more enjoyable or more interesting or more suspenseful books out there. I wish I had my credit back.

    "A twist on every page."

    I reluctantly started watching the TV series. I was hooked on by the twists. The book is even better. The addition of an inner dialogue and the back story brought to life for the reader brings even greater depth.

    "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!'

    "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.
