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…

    "It was a very entertaining story."

    Fast paced and we'll acted. Will be reading more in the series and other Blake Crouch books.

    "Fantastic, unexpected, and NOT over the top!"

    I don't know exactly what genre this book falls under: mystery? Sci-fi? Although Sci-fi isn't my thing, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I appreciate a complex, believable plot. I don't mind suspending belief a little for the sake of a good story, and the weirdness is grounded in enough normalcy/reality to make it delightfully creepy. The plotline is clever and well-written. The storyline is smooth and easy to follow. The characters are complex and believable. I understand that this book is part of a series - I might go deeper into it, I might not - like I said, sci-fi isn't my thing, but if following books are as...subtly weird...(just because weirdness is subtle doesn't make it less weird...), I may have to go deeper into the Pines. At any rate, if you just like a plain old mystery I highly recommend this book. It kept me guessing until the kick-in-the-pants end.

    "Better than the TV series"

    I watched the TV series and enjoyed it a lot. Didn't know where it was going and was shocked when we learned we were in the future. I then read the prequels which were good but nothing like this book. Can't wait until I start the next part.

    "Fantastic story--unfortunately stiff narration."

    Couldn't stop-listening to-this riveting story, even-though the-consistently-even and concise-style of-the narrator came-off as-rather-stiff. Loved it.

    "Great story. Much better than the miniseries."

    More details, more suspense. Great performance. The voices fit the characters wonderfully. Entertaining story telling.

    "Great Start For The Trilogy"

    I've actually been curious about this trilogy for a while now. I think when I originally acquired it on Kindle, the full series wasn't yet available... When we had a friend in from out of town, we ended up watching a few episodes of the television series that is based on this trilogy. I fell asleep while watching, but I wasn't worried, because I had it on Audible as well! So, I decided to start, switching off between the Kindle and Audio versions - though I mainly listened to it, though I never really grew to like the narrator all that much (which is a shame, because this is the same narrator for the entire trilogy!). And while it seems like from what I saw from the show that this was a faithful conversion from page to screen, I am surprised how much ground the show covered in a short amount of time - I hadn't thought I had gotten very far into the book, but this one actually didn't have quite as much new information that I expected. But, those sections that were new are definitely my favorite! And based on that, I have a feeling that I will really enjoy the next two books!

    It's an interesting concept overall for a dystopian fiction novel and I'm curious to see where the trilogy will go from here - if it does end up being really great and since I actually preferred reading the Kindle version- and I think I may pick up paper copies to give to my dad for Father's Day.

    "Awesome story, weird narrator"

    The plot itself was incredible. I definitely didn't see where things were heading! Narrator has a weird way of over annunciating that drive me up the wall, but it didn't detract from the yarn that was spun. Great book!
