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…

    Story
    "Fascinating,different dystopia"

    Having fallen hook, line, and sinker for the t.v. series, Wayward Pines five episodes in, I had to KNOW why...to so many questions. I devoured the audio book with abandon. The narrator is very good and holds the pace and tension exactly right as the story progresses.

    As others have said, there are some differences between the book and the TV show, but the basic story is close enough that I don't feel like I missed out on anything significant watching the show. There are definitely some serious plot holes here, but you know....it doesn't matter. The story is just so much fun, so different and riveting that I am willing to ignore a number of glaring details that make no logical, scientific, or emotional sense.

    "Good, but over done."

    The point about the hungries was made well enough without the repetitive coming out of the woodwork by the dozens. It got very tiresome.

    Story
    "You could be happy here, you know"

    By now, I'm sure you have either read the book, seen the TV show or live under a rock. I won't say a lot because much has already been said about this book, but I enjoyed it more than the show. I can definitely see why the show went in the direction it did as I do not believe people would've been able to follow it as closely if they used the book's story line word for word. It can be confusing at times for some, as the story jumps from character to character and Crouch's writing is very fast paced. But, I thought Paul Michael Garcia did a fabulous job with the narration and is definitely worth the listen. Overall, I am looking forward to the last 2 books in the series and will probably purchase the author's library for my own.

    I am very worried about narrators for books and this one is great. The story is great as well.

    Story
    "One of my all time favorite series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course. This is an excellent book, that has even been adapted into a TV series. However the TV series does not do it justice at all


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pines?

    The hospital


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Welcome to Wayward Pines

    Story
    "An interesting story that takes time to get moving"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pines to be better than the print version?

    Don't like to actually read. No idea.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nobody stood out.


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

    Like I said above, nobody stood out.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It's an okay story that only got interesting near the end. It seemed to drag on before letting you in on the big story. I cannot see why you would need two more books to cover this storyline. Can you tell I wasn't impressed?

    Story
    "Different than the show."

    Great story. I watched the mini series first as that was the first I heard of it. There are a number of things the same and a number of things quite different. Great narrator for the story as he is easy to listen to and holds your attention. This book is worthy of a purchase and now I'm on to buy the second in the series. Enjoy the listen.

    Long commutes need something to remove the boredom! Love history, mysteries/thrillers, scifi and bios, but read a little bit of everything.

    Story
    "Not quite the TV series..."

    My problem was I saw most of the TV series based upon this novel before I read it. So.... Overall this is a good book, but I will warn you that you will do a number of double takes if you do what I did. Don't skip this book, but just be prepared as a number of storylines and facts are different (some significantly) between the book and the TV series.

    Personally, I like the book's storyline better than the movie. Overall a good performance and great book. Now I just need to make sure I read the rest before they decide to put them on TV too!
