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…

    "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!

    Story
    "A Small Town Worthy Of The Twilight Zone"

    I saw previews for the Wayward Pines miniseries and was intrigued. After watching the TV show lost, I was afraid I would invest 10 hours to a show that gave no answers. So I read the book. I was quickly sucked in and am now a fan. This book provides answers to the main mystery. Books 2 and 3 answer all other questions.

    I loved this series of books. I just hope the miniseries lives up to the books.
    All three books are worth the money!

    "Wow ..... Thrilling & slightly different than TV"

    Wow .... Screenplay for TV has tamed the gory & creepy a bit. Was fun to listen to the original. And I like that I really think there is more to the story & cant fathom what it could be. Very creative writer & I like the narrator.

    Story
    "Waaaay too much!"

    This book is a relentless, unending, unendurable torrent of brutality, pain, suffering and torture with almost no relief...ever.
    You can see that it isn't my idea of a good read
    However, I decided to struggle on and zone out for some of the not particularly suspenseful struggle. Just more incredibly horrific sadism. The level of brutality, by the way, is never satisfactorily explained.
    It is a mash-up of Lost, Stepford Wives, the Lottery, Planet of the Apes and Hunger Games.
    The end is interesting and clever but not worth the long time coming. This should have been a short story.

    "overall, pretty good syfi, keeps you guessing."

    love to be suprised, few books can do that anymore, but this one pulled it off in the end. overall well written if a little unbelievable as to character motivation, but I was able to suspend disbelief as I was too distracted with trying to figure out what was going on.

    Story
    "Creepy and Gritty"

    Creepy town. Gritty. A little bit gory. Intrigue and mystery. If it was a movie it would be R-rated for some language throughout and mild gruesome images. Super descriptive too.

    Story
    "Interesting, but. . ."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a very interesting plot that moved quite skillfully, yet we wonder sometimes about the characters behaving in the manner in which they have been portrayed. Their decisions are rather awkward and unbelievable.
