"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." -- Author's website.

Have you ever migrated through a bad book and finally reached the end...exclaiming I CAN'T BELIEVE I READ THE WHOLE THING !!

I don't understand why this book is so popular. The premise is completely crazy, the characters do things that don't make any sense... doesn't hold together at all.

I'm just sad that there were only three books.

I really liked this book and can't wait to read the sequels. I like that the story jumps right in. Towards the middle/end of the book is when it really becomes a page turner though. Loved the weirdness of this story.

We’ve seen this scenario before: guy (or gal) wakes up, usually in a hospital after an accident, and the world has changed. Could be zombies, aliens, time shifts, etc. And thus starts Pines, clearly written with a TV series in mind. But Pines is an adrenaline rush of a mystery/thriller that is hard to put down, because we want to know what is going on. The mystery is revealed at the end, so despite the author’s outstanding ability to create page-turning tension, will the second book be as good? Only one way to find out!

This book was a major page turner. I HAD to find out how much more could be completely crazy! Very suspenseful, very attention grabbing, lots of twists and turns.

An absolute thrill ride of a Science Fiction novel. It will have you guessing the entire read and you will not be able to put this book down! As someone who can sometimes judge a books ending harshly I found Pines to have one of my all time favorite endings purely because I never saw the twist coming. Give this exciting read a try if you need a book to easily get into.
