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…

    "Bizarre with intriguing twists"
    Would you listen to Pines again? Why?

    Pines was a great read, I kept wondering how the author would pull it together. Details didn't add up but I was completely sucked in.


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

    Narrator was able to create both like able personalities and a few that were despicably detestable.

    "Nothing is ever as it seems"

    I will try to write this review to allow those who saw the miniseries will get a good idea of how the two compare with out giving away spoilers to those who are reading this review to try to decide whether or not to read. Here goes...

    I am having a love/hate relationship with Blake Crouch, his stories either captivate me or leave me a bit unsatisfied. In this case, I love him. I, like many others, first heard of him after watching the Wayward Pines miniseries on TV. If you are in that boat let me assure you this book holds up, however the story is a bit more graphic than you might think.

    If you are knew to Blake Crouch imagine this...You are in a bad car accident and wake up in a town you have never been to before. A place trapped in time, A place with no internet or news, where no one speaks of the past...and everyone lives in a Stepford like bliss; what would you do? This story examines exactly that scenario and takes a look into the hearts of men to look at what we do when the world ends.

    Story
    "Not bad but not great either"

    The narrator did an excellent job, has a good voice.

    The story however has some significant plot problems, notably that the David Pritchard character makes some bizarre leaps in logic that break my suspension of disbelief pretty hard. The fact that in the continuity of the story he turns out to be correct feels forced & heavy handed.

    "Wayward Pines Trilogy"
    Any additional comments?

    This review is really for the whole trilogy, not just the first book. I just really recommend it to everyone. The plotting is so dynamic and suspenseful and the author is so adept at creating these vivid, multidimensional characters that really bring the story to life. The good characters are definitely flawed, but this almost makes you like them more and although the bad characters are pretty bad, there are aspects of their nature that lead you to believe they could have been something better. In fact, at times, with one in particular, I found myself pulling for him, wanting him to have what he wanted. Anyway, it's a great story. Well worth your time and money. Oh, and the narrator is AMAZING! He can do male voices, female voices, kids ... he is very talented! Highly, highly, recommend it.

    "Not what I expected but Brilliant"

    When I started with this book, I found it hollow and cute. But, there was a reason for that, and you have to get in a couple of chapters to find out. But it is worth the effort. The plot that unfolds takes you by surprise and leaves you wondering about the many issues being raised.

    Can't wait to get into the next book.

    Good story, well written and keeps you speculating until the truth is revealed. I really enjoyed this novel and will get book 2.Touches of 'The Wicker Man' and 'The X Files' plausible characters and fast paced. Well worth a punt .

    Story
    "Don't miss this one!"
    If you could sum up Pines in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid. Imaginative. Terrifying.


    What other book might you compare Pines to, and why?

    Brave New World and 1984. An imaginative and frightening vision of a possible future;
    I sincerely hope Blake Crouch has got it completely wrong!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    'You can check out any time you like... but you can never leave!'

    Story
    "Gripping story. Keeps you on your toes."
    Any additional comments?

    This is a terrific book, gripping from the very start and very clever. It keeps you guessing. As the story progresses it is hard to pin it down to a specific genre - at some point it seems to be a psychological thriller but then maybe it is a crime mystery or maybe a horror or even a scifi? I looked for these audiobooks after enjoying the TV series based on the books so, before I started I already knew the big secret 'reveal' of the plot but this didn't spoil it for me. It is similar enough to the TV series to have the same haunting atmosphere but different enough to still be fresh. The narrator does a pretty good job reflecting the tension and mystery. A little gory for the squeamish but I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone looking for something exciting, compelling and a bit out of the ordinary.

    "All are welcome at Wayward Pines!"
    What did you like best about Pines? What did you like least?

    I did like the idea of the story, but quite a few times it was a little slow going.


    What aspect of Paul Michael Garcia’s performance might you have changed?

    I thought his performance was ok. However he could have been a little more creative with some of the character's voices.


    Do you think Pines needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There are already 2 follow-up books to the Pines.
