  1. And the base emotion underlying it all that was getting harder and harder to ignore.Terror.The strengthening sense that something was very, very wrong.As with The Magicians, I have to confess I like the TV series Wayward Pines far better than the book Yes, I know the reveal has been spoiled, but that really wasn t my problem with it Pines is built on a fantastic idea no, really, a truly epic idea and that strength just about manages to carry the book despite some poor writing, an asshole protago [...]

  3. Since the Industrial Revolution, we ve treated our world like it was a hotel room and we were rock stars But we aren t rock stars In the scheme of evolutionary forces, we are a weak, fragile species Our genome is corruptible, and we so abused this planet that we ultimately corrupted that precious DNA blueprint that makes us human Ethan Burke was sent to Wayward Pines, Idaho, to find two missing secret service agents One of them was his old partner and for a brief time his lover Going after Kate [...]

  4. 4.5 I need to next book ASAP.You know when you find a new TV series and you just want to binge watch it This is how I feel about his books.I read Dark Matter last year and loved it so I was excited to read of his work This time was no different Another thriller sci fi that keeps you on adrenaline and that you can t put down Trust me you want to go into this knowing nothing Just read it.This didn t end up being what I expected but I really liked it and would recommend it

  5. Don t dare read any spoilers before you start these books Just don t do it.Secret service officer Ethan Burke is sent to Wayward Pines to find two missing agents Once he gets into town he realizes that he is having moments of memory loss and this town is a tad bit on the odd side.He can not get calls to go out to get in touch with either his office or his wife and son The sheriff in the town is a different sort of all his own Everywhere Ethan turns is something that seems off in this small perfe [...]

  6. Wow.This is a damn good book.Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about it, because spoilers will damage the charm of this story Author Blake Crouch has done an excellent job of putting together a suspenseful thriller that is at its finest when, in Sixth Sense fashion, the reader can experience his presentation untethered with pre knowledge I don t watch TV, so I haven t seen anything about the television series and had only read a few of my GR friends reviews and the theme of all of them i [...]

  7. I used to love Dean Koontz I probably read close to 20 of his novels before burning out in the mid 90 s Since then, I ve reread half a dozen or so and can t, for the life of me, figure out what attracted me to them I mention this as a personal bias, because Blake Crouch s Pines reminds me, above all things, of a Dean Koontz novel And not a particularly good one at that.At least 75% of the novel is an exercise in describing physical activity running, climbing, fighting, hiding, and then running [...]

  8. I ll say it again Well That was something At the risk of alienating all of my most excellent friends who ve loved this book, I m going to be honest and say that while there were things that I liked about it I didn t love it I had quite a lot of issues with this book, so you know let s get this ranting party started DSecret Service agent Ethan Burke wakes up next to a river with no idea who he is or where he is or why he is wherever he is Thus begins his quest to figure out what happened to him a [...]

  9. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke wakes up in the mountain town of Wayward Pines, his memory full of holes aside from that of a horrific car wreck that landed him in the hospital But where are his belongings Why can t he contact anyone outside of Wayward Pines over the phone And why can t he seem to leave I got this from Netgalley.I ve been curious about this for quite a while Since it showed up on Netgalley last week, complete with promises of being a television show soon, I jumped on it.Pines i [...]

  10. I hate when this happens when my feelings for a book are all over the place There s the part of me that loved the mystery of the first half and then there s the part of me that didn t like the whole idea behind the book Don t get me wrong, it wasn t horrible, but it wasn t Dark Matter spectacular either Blake Crouch is great at drumming up suspense and his writing, once again, incited that frantic need to know race in this reader While that s exciting and all, I wanted a little character devel [...]

  12. Rating 4.5 of fiveI hate, loathe, detest reviewing Kindle books It s clunky How should I know which bookmarked passage is mine I have to look all over the damned place and usually end up annoyed so I can t quote the good bits.That s why I ve never reviewed my friend Blake Crouch s eerie thriller Pines It s set in Idaho, which is scary enough for me right there with all the right wingers and Mormons hi Pat, sending smooches, please don t shoot me , in an imaginary town called Wayward Pines cough [...]

  13. This book.It s written.In fragments.The writing style really got on my nerves While it was kind of a page turner, the final reveal was really far fetched and disappointing, which left me feeling ambivalent about the whole thing I also felt the supporting characters needed to be fleshed out Overall meh.

  14. Fast paced, gripping, Pines let me begging for I am in awe READ IT READ IT READ IT This book is fabulous The plot fascinated and surprised me The male lead let s call him he wakes up in an unknown town, badly bruised, penniless, and without any memories of his life Now, this is a situation that would scare the shit out of anyone, don t you agree From page one my brain was reeling, faced with so many unanswered questions that I couldn t help but strongly sympathize with him what defines who you [...]

  16. Review written September 24, 2015.I hate when this happens.It s absolute hell when there s a book everyone loves and yet you end up hating it I seriously hate it Some might think ooh, but it s fun being the black sheep but I tell you It is not.Disliking books is not a comfortable feel It s as if there s a big party, everyone s invited and when you get there, you figure out no one wants you there That s how I feel after reading this book Because I wanted to be crazy about it Because I wanted to f [...]

  17. In the pines, in the pinesWhere the sun don t ever shineI would shiver the whole night through LeadbellyIn case you re planning to read Pines for yourself the less you know about this book, the better Therefore I intend to keep this review spoiler free, but I can t guarantee that certain judgements I make won t foreshadow events in the book It is entirely safe to proceed reading through this first paragraph in case you need your fix of my reviews, but there won t be much to see except for someth [...]

Update 26 09 17 The Kindle edition is currently on special offer 0.99p in the UK, 0.99 in Canada and 1.34 or 0.99 in the States It s the same price for each book in the trilogy.One road in No road outI ve just finished reading this crazy book and I m totally bewildered The revelation at the end took me by surprise massive understatement I didn t see that coming As with most books, at some point in the story I assume I know which direction it s taking sometimes I m right lucky guess , other times [...]

  19. Secret service agent Ethan Burke wakes up in Wayward Pines, Idaho after a car crash He has no ID or cell phone and there seems to be no way to reach anyone outside the cityI liked the book, I liked it very much, but I feel that I had too high expectations and it didn t really live up to it Perhaps it would have been better if I didn t have back in my head all the reviews I read about the book, of all the praise In a way, it could never really live up to it since I did expect a true masterpiece o [...]

  20. For every perfect little town, there s something ugly underneath No dream without the nightmare.This story is something I like to call How many times can you gasp loudly say WTF while reading a book And the answer would be many, many times.I m not going to say much, because I feel like this is one of those books that you should go into knowing as little as possible I m just gonna say that this whole book was just one huge mindfuck Every single time I thought I knew something, I felt like somebod [...]

  21. Where d you live before Wayward Pines I ve always lived here You ve never left this town Ethan asked You can t leave, the boy said Why You just can t I don t accept that That s why you re going to die Not too long ago, it feels like yesterday, really, I saw a television commercial for a show called Wayward Pines It was utterly compelling and drew me in every time the commercial aired I never got around to watching it, I never really catch TV shows unless they re re runs of my all time favorites, [...]

  22. I m sad to admit that I watch way too much TV My addiction is so out of control that I even try to keep abreast of all the exciting new shows coming down the pike pathetic, I know Last year I saw an intriguing trailer for an upcoming show on Fox called Wayward Pines After watching, I filed it away in the old steel trap, and didn t think too much about it Then a few months ago reviews for a book called Pines started popping up all over my feed The story seemed vaguely familiar somehow, but I cou [...]

  23. A fun read, though not brilliant in terms of the final revelation it or less ties things up but there seem to be than a few inexplicable plot points Also, the author s habit of breathlessly listing sentence fragments became incredibly annoying by the end.Constant.Never ending.Fragments.Just hanging.I was sufficiently hooked by Pines to read on, but I won t be picking up another Blake Crouch book as a result.Just in case.Annoying.Really.It also seemed, for a large majority of the book, that the [...]

  24. Blake Crouch you son of a gunyou sucked me in right away with this book I was literally drawn in by the very first page It kept my interest and I actually finished it very fast It turned into a page turner for me I loved that the main character, Ethan, was in a town trying to find 2 missing agents and woke to find himself injured on the side of the road after and accident I liked that the town was a town where everything looked fine of the surface but something was just off and did not feel righ [...]

What is your greatest fear Is it being trapped in a confined space Is it death by suffocation Or is it finding yourself in a completely foreign place lost, confused, devoid of any contacts to the outside world and where no one seems to know you Waking was Wayward Pines.This beautiful hell.Agent Ethan Burke woke with a spiltting headache and a slight memory loss after a car accident He was admitted to a hospital and when he came to next, he found himself trapped inside the walls of Wayward Pines.

Krau ov Pines definitivno nije my cup of tea Poku a u ukratko da obrazlo im i za to.Priznajem da me je Pines privukao pre svega zbog dovo enja u vezu sa 2 kultne televizijske serije uz koje sam odrasla, The X Files i Twin Peaks.The X Files je to se mene ti e najbolja TV serija svih vremena, a agent Mulder je bio moj prvi celebrity crush 3 ovek koji je bio ve iti borac protiv iskvarenog dru tveno politi kog sistema, borac za istinu i pravdu, levo smetalo svima koji su oli enje korupcije i nemoral [...]

  29. Of course from the beginning I felt the Twin Peakish vibe I m still not sure how good this book actually was but one thing is for sure I was hooked from page one Actual Rating 3.5 StarsA crazy town, creepy people, no way out Just because you re paranoid doesn t mean they aren t after you The old and familiar tropes were there however Crouch still captured my attention with an engaging, action packed writing and a hypnotic quality that made of it a non stop journey The plot twist was perfect, the [...]
