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 think that people who like the cliche sort of hardened, yet sexual, overly muscled cop-types which cannot stop having torture flashbacks from war
It just wasn't my type of book. I found it too dramatic and weird. There is a market for it though, obviously.
The narration was good, but I didn't feel like his voice fit the main character.
It wasn't horribly written, and the first half my interest in what the "twist" ending would be kept me listening, but by second half did not live up to my expectation.
Ok. I have to admit I nearly gave up on this one but I am very glad I persevered. It definitely takes awhile to get to the good stuff but it is worth the wait. Great characters and plot. I plan on finishing the series.
I enjoyed every twist and turn. I felt as though I was stuck with Ethan in a dream waiting to see how it ended. I could not turn this book off. I listened for almost the full 8 hours. I'm diving into the next book now!
This review gives nothing away. I couldn't figure out what was at the bottom of all this. I felt it was either going to be rather stupid or pretty good. Listening to the second in the trilogy depended on the ending. Now that I finished, I decided to buy the next one. This is a unique novel.
The first part of the book was so predictable, it was hard to get through at times.
However, the narration was Excellent!
My guess was pretty close, but still it was a slightly interesting variation.
A movie, maybe. Life there is generally too normal to make a good TV series.
Very interesting premise. I felt that it took way too long for the reveal and the brutality of the community is never really explained in the first book. I look forward to reading more and hope it progresses faster now that the situation has been elucidated.
Exceeded my expectations. Great story, great narration, and phenomenal concept. I look forward to checking out the next two books!!!
