Book 127

Pines (Wayward Pines, #1)Pines by Blake Crouch

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Honestly the ending, which I won't spoil, was really a good one but the story getting there just didn't engage me as much as I would have hoped. I think maybe it went on too long. How many times could I watch Ethan on the run, get badly injured and then go on the run again?

Ethan is secrets services and is in Wayward Pines Idaho because two coworkers have gone missing there. Ethan is quickly wrapped up in trying to get out of the town and back to his family and no one seems to know who he is and no one he calls outside of the Pines is helpful. Basically the entire town is gaslighting this dude.

And that's the whole sinister plot in a nutshell. I was bored and nearly gave up but the last third was worth it. It's not that it's a badly written book but it is one that just wasn't for me.
