Pines (Wayward Pines #1) by Blake Crouch


Set in: Idaho
Summary: Secret service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, with a clear mission: locate and recover two federal agents who went missing in the bucolic town one month earlier. But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into the disappearance of his colleagues turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he get any phone calls through to his wife and son in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what is the purpose of the electrified fences surrounding the town? Are they meant to keep the residents in? Or something else out? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the world he thought he knew, from the man he thought he was, until he must face a horrifying fact—he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.

2013 International Thriller Award Nominee

The international runaway bestseller is now a Major Television Event from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, starring Matt Dillon and premiering May 14th on FOX.

First this book was so not what I expected. This book is Crazy with a capital K. This book was nonstop action packed and when you find out what is going on in Wayward Pines… you can’t help but think WHAT THE HELL???/

In fact I was so desperate to know what was going to happen I debated googling “what the hell is going on in Wayward Pines” but me being a good reader didn’t. I just had to know.

This book was very good, I enjoyed it immensely. I have not watched the TV show, but I am thinking I may need to watch the show.

I almost get why M. Night is directly the Pines, this is something he has done before.

Simply put this book is nonstop crazy train that I promise you will not want to put down.

I listened to this book and the narrator was fantastic and easy to comprehend at 3x speed so I could get through this book as fast as possible.
