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…

    Story
    "Wish I'd seen"
    Would you try another book from Blake Crouch and/or Paul Michael Garcia?

    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.


    Has Pines turned you off from other books in this genre?

    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!

    "Don't Hesitate! This book is REALLY Good!"
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    Not one to listen to books more than once but yes, this one would be worth a second listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    What about Paul Michael Garcia’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator, articulate, easy to decipher between characters, easy to listen to without being one bit annoying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    Story
    "Incredulous and Padded"

    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.

    Story
    "Not bad - Not great"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe to read, but not to listen to. Probably not - on both.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No. Nothing really happened for quite awhile. Just confusion and frustration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.

    "3 1/2 stars"

    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

    What made the experience of listening to Pines the most enjoyable?

    The story was great and the reader was wonderful. Listened to all three in the trilogy and was hoping there would be another!

    "Loved this book"
    If you could sum up Pines in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, Imaginative, Awesome


    What other book might you compare Pines to and why?

    It's a pretty original concept


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole beginning, up until "the truth" came out.


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait until the 4th book comes out!

    This is a really good listen. Well worth a credit. I did not see the ending coming. One of the best books I have listened to this year.
