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…

Took forever to get no where

I don't write reviews day take this with a grain... But I was very bored and confused and overall disappointed until some answers came almost at the very end... And when they did come, what a let down.

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.

bleh

I really couldn't get in to the story. I struggled through about the first hour or so and finally gave up.

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.

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.

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?
