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…

Not to book one, but have put book two and three on my wish list
The explanation of the reason for the town's existence
The visit to the former City of Boise
Story starts out slow as it weaves it way back and forth between story lines,characters past and present. It becomes obvious in the last chapter that this first book is simply a prelude and a setup for the main story which follows in the next two books. I am glad I stayed with it because now I am hooked and can't wain to read books the trilogy.
I stand working all day. My only escape is the book I listen to. I do not even remember writing half of my reviews. They seem too absurd.
I did not read the print version. I enjoy audiobooks so i do recommend you purchase this. It is also for a cheap price when purchased with the e-book. That is a plus.
This book is a mystery book. The answers to the mystery are very nice and will keep you thinking about it for a long while.
The end, where the mystery is unraveled.
One road in, No road out.
That is what the show tagline is.
It is an interesting book, if you like mystery thrillers this book may interest you. The trilogy is fairly cheap if you buy them all with their e-book counterparts. I think it should be read.
I started watching the television show which I thought was ok but the book is really good! The narrator is superior to most.
Where the TV show is a bit wonky the book gives the story much credibility! I can not wait to read Wauward!
I listened to the audible version in one day! I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I can usually foresee the outcome, but I never saw this one coming. I'm headed for book 2 now!
great story! yes there are some cliches such as "drink like a fish" etc. and the writer males the wife stereotypically wimpy with her" 5 G and T's" etc... but if u ignore the occasional bad writing it is worth it!
if you enjoyed the Silo saga, you will certainly enjoy Pines. I will definitely be reading more books by Crouch after I finish the Wayward Pines series.
currently watching the TV version when I learned it was based on a book. Downloaded the first book because waiting for each episode to air was frustrating. Slightly different, of course, but the differences actually make the book more enjoyable. Well read. Can't wait to start book2.
