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…

    "An interesting story that takes time to get moving"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pines to be better than the print version?

    Don't like to actually read. No idea.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nobody stood out.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael Garcia – was your favorite?

    Like I said above, nobody stood out.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It's an okay story that only got interesting near the end. It seemed to drag on before letting you in on the big story. I cannot see why you would need two more books to cover this storyline. Can you tell I wasn't impressed?

    "Different than the show."

    Great story. I watched the mini series first as that was the first I heard of it. There are a number of things the same and a number of things quite different. Great narrator for the story as he is easy to listen to and holds your attention. This book is worthy of a purchase and now I'm on to buy the second in the series. Enjoy the listen.

    Long commutes need something to remove the boredom! Love history, mysteries/thrillers, scifi and bios, but read a little bit of everything.

    Story
    "Not quite the TV series..."

    My problem was I saw most of the TV series based upon this novel before I read it. So.... Overall this is a good book, but I will warn you that you will do a number of double takes if you do what I did. Don't skip this book, but just be prepared as a number of storylines and facts are different (some significantly) between the book and the TV series.

    Personally, I like the book's storyline better than the movie. Overall a good performance and great book. Now I just need to make sure I read the rest before they decide to put them on TV too!

    "Love the narration!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pines to be better than the print version?

    I am both reading and listening to the "Pines" series - the story (to me) has some holes but I can't stop reading soooo....

    "Great listen/great story!"

    I wanted to listen to the book series after watching this as a TV show. I enjoyed the book just as much as the TV show, even though some details are slightly different. Of course the book usually offers a little more. I am looking forward to the next two books in the series.

    "Couldn't put it down."

    Great plot line that kept me wondering what will happen next. I thought I could guess but I was wrong. Just the kind of twists and turns I like to keep me listening!

    "Great concept but very poorly written."

    Great concept but very poorly written. We hated the main character and really everyone in the book save for maybe one or two here and there. All over the place and hard to follow until the last 20 min. Do not recommend.

    "I was on the edge of my seat…"

    The suspense and plot of the story was excellent! Didn't really see the end coming and was thrilled with the outcome. Great descriptions by the author to be able to picture the setting and characters with great amount of detail.

    "A lovely town..."

    I think Pines is a great book. I actually have been watching the series adapted from the book so decided to listen. This being the case there were one or two areas that I thought the author could have made a bit clearer but overall a great read... or listen!
