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…

    "Meh"
    Any additional comments?

    I got into this book series through the TV shows. The shows started so well and showed potential until about episode three when a stupid plot turn dropped me right out of it. So I tried the books. The disastrous TV plot turn doesn't happen in the books so I stuck with it and listened to all three in the series. The first book showed so much promise and potential that for me was never quite realized in the following two. I found the characters predictable and stiff without much growth. There are no glaring errors or mistakes, The writing is good, the reading better, but now that I'm done with the series I feel - meh.

    Story
    "Intriguing, not intricate"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the story, but it was slightly lacking. There are some great ideas that are just begging for more story to be told.

    There are a couple perspective changes, but they felt like they were thrown in to just make a later part of the story make sense, there could have been more story told in my opinion.

    The positive side is it is a quick read that I enjoyed and would recommend.

    Story
    "A really good book."

    The storyline associated with this trilogy of books is deliberately strange and unsettling. It gives the reader same feeling of being unsettled that is reminiscent of the series Twin peaks. Even when some of the big answers are revealed to the questions that are raised throughout the book, we're still left with the sense that there's more that you don't yet know. I really like the book and I can't wait to read the other two in the trilogy. Very pleasant surprise finding this book and I'm excited because he has several other titles available for me to bring. I always hate it when I find a book and I love by an author who has no other books to read.

    "Interesting"

    Great story. Definitely different from the TV show in many ways. A pretty shocking ending and a good story for sci-fy fans.

    Story
    "Almost Just a Sci-Fi Rather Than Pure Suspense"

    I listened to this wonderful book rather quickly. A real 'page-turner' for as much as an Audible listen can be.
    There are flashbacks that confused me at first until you realize them as such. I will definitely be getting the final two books in the trio.
    I feel that the characters were very well developed. A recommended read by me. I won't ruin a book by discussing the story. I hope you don't read any reviews that ruin the story for you.

    This book (series) has been turned into a television series. That should lend it some further credit. Go, add it to your wish list or account, now!

    "Buy this one!!!!!"
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    Yes. Fabulous story with an awesome concept. I think listening to it again would help me discover little tidbits I missed


    What other book might you compare Pines to and why?

    I can't think of another book like this. It has Lost undertones in a whole new direction.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    ALL OF THEM


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

    No. I needed to digest the information I just heard. Incredible!


    Any additional comments?

    ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!!

    I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.

    Story
    "Intense and Mind-Bending"
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    I would listen to Pines again to see things that I may have missed the first go round because it was intense and moving at a fast pace.


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

    YES! This plot kept me on the edge of my seat from the first minute. The reader read with such intensity and at a quick, but not too fast, pace that you hung on every single word. The pace kept you on the edge of your seat, the idea that no matter how hard you tried, you could not figure out who-dun-it and easily see the twists coming.


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

    My favorite character by far was Ethan Burke. He was every man with super talents. You felt for him. He was away from his family, all he wanted was to get back to them, he would risk life and limb to get to them. He had super skills that got him further than most thought possible, and he never gave up. The narrator did an excellent job of making you believe you were listening to Ethan.


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

    When Ethan finally figures out what is going on in Wayward Pines and what the future entailed moved me. Especially the very end. Chilling.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a wonderful book that literally took my breath away at moments. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good thriller and feels they always have everything figured out. Guess what. You don't.

    Story
    "The first of a trilogy.."
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    Not to book one, but have put book two and three on my wish list


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pines?

    The explanation of the reason for the town's existence


    What does Paul Michael Garcia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pacing


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

    The visit to the former City of Boise


    Any additional comments?

    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.
