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…

Interesting concept but missing key facts

First, the protagonist suffers way too much physical harm and deprivation. No human being could endure the trauma, the physical and psychological stress, and be immediately available to handle the next similar crisis.

The second concern was how the author assumed that technology would protect humans near the end of the book but there was no mention as to how technology would continue to provide functional helicopters and automobiles in the same New World.

Comparing to tv show

While I liked the book, I think the tv show's version is a bit better. Still I enjoyed it.

Good enough to convince me to continue the series

This audiobook was so frustrating! It's supposed to be, of course, but about half way through I was just really sick of not knowing what was going on at all. The big reveal seems to come a little too late and a little too prepackaged for me. However, the characters are interesting - even the ones I hated - and my interest is piqued enough to keep going with the series.

The narrator was fine, but not my favourite. His character voices were really excellent, but I didn't enjoy his narration of the story -the non-speaking parts.

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.

Mistake

I wish I had never purchased and listened to this story- upsetting story, ruined my weekend. The description was misleading.

Riveting

Wow, run, hide, fight, climb. What the hell is going on? This book hit the ground running and kept going until the end.

Not a complete story

At the point at which I thought the book was finally taking off past the character development and the setup for the plot, it ended. It's one of the only series books I've read in which I won't even try the next book.

Book 1 was a real suspenseful page turner,. but...

Would you try another book from Blake Crouch and/or Paul Michael Garcia?

Not the author. I was disappointed in books 2 and 3 in this series. The problem that I had was the language and violence depicted. Really noticing beginning in book 2, constant "f" words, in my opinion. VERY distracting. I found it a bit frustrating that the author depicted all characters as speaking that way ( it seemed like, believe it or not, not everyone does) By book 3 both the language and violence seemed over the top and made it difficult to finish. The plot however, was interesting and unpredictable. Too bad that I find the other too distracting.<br/>Performance was good by Paul Michael Garcia.

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

yes, unpredictable plot

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

I guess Theresa

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

It has two
