This book was my gateway to my Blake Crouch obsession. It was like Lost meets Twin Peaks and I couldn‘t devour it fast enough. Blew my mind! Highly recommended backlist title. Thanks for the tag! Any who wants to play is officially tagged as well. 😍📚. #alphabetgame. #LetterP

#Pines #BlakeCrouch #BookSpinBingo

Secret service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, trying to locate and recover two federal agents who went missing in the this town one month earlier. Ethan is involved in a violent accident and arrives in the hospital where strange things begin to happen to him. Soon Ethan‘s investigation into the disappearance of his colleagues turns up more questions than answers.

EadieB 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? Ethan soon finds out he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. 12mo
EadieB This book was a quick read. I found it to be more of a sci-fi book than a thriller. It is somewhat hard to believe that Ethan is a secret service agent as he seems more like the sheriff he ends up being in Wayward Pines. Crouch also went a bit too far with the story in the end which took away from the book. I also watched the TV series on Fox which was advertised on my book. 12mo
EadieB I actually enjoyed the TV series more than the book. If you enjoyed Stephen King's books, The Stand and Under The Dome, then you may enjoy Pines too. (edited) 12mo

5 STARS ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ you have to read the book without really knowing what it is about! You are in for a treat! People kept telling me for years to read this book but I never listened. I feel bad now because this book will blow your mind. To keep it simple: A federal Agent is set out to find two fellow missing agents and he finds himself in a small, idyllic town named Wayward Pines. A typical American small town. With a secret. A big secret.

What a wild ride, what a great story. Black crouch does an excellent job of brining the reader into the story and making you wonder if you missed something about the story.. making you try to guess, but your guesses are wrong. They are so very wrong. Part of the story are revealed slowly over the course of the book and it is so well done, you are at the edge of your seat till the very end.

First time I tried to read psychological thriller, m not disappointed. The first half of the book good but confusing, but slowly I got the hang of it. It‘s about a detective who wakes up after an accident in a place without ID, n gets stuck in that weird place. But whether he regains his memory n normal life? At d end I felt there r too much details , still good writing style. Real page Turner 3.5🌟

⭐⭐⭐⭐ I've decided that Blake Crouch is my favorite author. I knew nothing about the book... other than it was probably a psychological thriller. And WOW! I had no idea what was going on. Was he crazy, was the town crazy, am I crazy?
I was not at all disappointed.

Fiction
I realized that the author was very descriptive about everything that he was talking about, from the first chapter to the chapter that I am on right now. Once in a while, the author uses figurative language, he might‘ve added more figurative language but I missed them. I like his way of writing because in the end of some chapters he uses suspense and it makes me want to read further and she what will happen next.

Right November 2020, let's be havin ya!

Onioons I picked this book suspecting it would have a strong plot rather than strong characters. It was definitely surprising. But I just didn't like the guy and that always makes it harder for me to care. Marks for originality but the protagonist kinda ruined it for me. 2y

Fiction:
There has been 3 places that the story has been taken in, the central part of the city, the hospital, and Ethan‘s hotel room. If the book took place in an abandoned forest, that would be very interesting because stating the fact that he didn‘t know where he was, he would have to figure out where he was and how to get out of there. I‘m not sure where the story should take but maybe where Ethan‘s partner is.

Fiction:
I have read more than 3/4 of the first chapter. The characters are Miranda the barista, Mack Scozie, Jane, and Agent Stallings. The injured man went to the coffee store to ask the barista if she knew him and she didn‘t, so she went to this random guys house and he passed out in front of the stranger‘s house. His name was Mack and his wife, Jane, and they helped him get to a hospital and then the man remembered Agent Stallings.

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....

Wayward Pines is small, isolated, and seemingly perfect. But when Agent Ethan Burke finds he can't leave, things start getting very weird... So I loved the unsettling Twins Peaks vibe and the mystery had me hooked. I HAD to know what the hell was going on! Not sure the ending worked for me, though, and the plot was very action heavy with lots of running, climbing, and fighting. Not one to read before bed because it stressed me out!

Ericalambbrown Oooohhhh! I watched that show and it was really good! I didn‘t know there was a book. 2y
Lucy_Anywhere @Ericalambbrown There's a show? I need to watch it! Thanks for the heads up 2y

Part Mayberry, part The Purge, part... something else, but that would spoil it! this story kept me turning pages. There were times I second guessed what was really going on, and I never did fully figure it out. Some of the scenarios ran a little long, but just as I was starting to wonder when it would end, it did.👇🏽

SoapboxEdits The ending was satisfying but a little ‘meh.‘ It still deserves four stars because it finishes as a stand-alone, but gives A LOT of room for the sequels. (edited) 2y

I haven't seen the show, but knew what the plot twist was at about 20%.

Not going to read the other two books.

jenniferajanes I haven‘t read this one, but I have read Recursion and Abandon by Black Crouch. Dark Matter is next on my list. If you haven‘t read his other stuff, give him a try. I like his writing! (Based on your review, I may choose to skip this one, though.) 3y
julesG @jenniferajanes I'll try one of his other books. I might have seen too many M Night Shyamalan films to truly appreciate Pines. 😉 3y

Another page turner from Blake Crouch that I enjoyed a lot. Same as in Dark Matter, he keeps finding twists and turns to keep it interesting and the action going. I didn't like everything in it but overall it's a good read, especially that I didn't guess the ending.

Blake Crouch never let's me down! I love his newer books and I've been meaning to grab some of his older work for so long and I'm glad I finally did.

This reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode....creepy, unsettling and completely unnerving

The Master of Mind F*ck has done it again (or already....this is an older book....whatever...you know what I mean 😂)

June of this year Blake Crouch released his new book Recursion. It was a total mind bender and I loooooved it. So I was totally stoked to find out he actually has a trilogy that revolves a small town in Idaho that is MUCH more than it seems.
I was even more stoked when I realized all 3 books are on Kindle Unlimited FOR FREE. 🤤#kindleunlimited #kindle #ereader #waywardpines

BookBumming Synopsis of the first book “Pines”
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 sometimes feels...off.
3y
BookBumming As 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?

Well this wasn't what I expected! I thought this was something close to David Baldacci but it ended up more like The Maze Runner. I think this is a good book but the first part could learn something from The Maze Runner. I think it could have given the reader a bit more info and/or breathing breaks to make it more interesting right from the beginning. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series! 😊

GarthRanzz I‘ve actually done #6 in a way. I was such a fan of The Walking Dead when it started and no one was really reading it yet that I bought 25 copies of the first trade and mailed them all out to people. The only stipulation I had was that if they didn‘t like it they had to pass the book to someone they thought would. Not one got passed along except to encourage someone else to try it. 5y
