Présentation de l'éditeur

The international runaway bestsellers that inspired the most watched summer show of 2015. From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, Wayward Pines returns May 25th, 2016 and airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.

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

"Pines" (tome 1) et "Wayward" (tome 2) sont les débuts d'une trilogie basée sur une excellente idée, que je ne peux pas vous dévoiler sous peine de gâcher toute votre lecture.

Un jour, un homme se réveille. Il a oublié qui il est, a de vagues souvenirs. D'abord de son travail (il travaille dans les services secrets) puis de sa famille (une femme et un jeune garçon). Il essaie d'expliquer tout cela aux personnes qu'il rencontre, de Pamela, l'infirmière bienveillante, à la serveuse, bienveillante aussi, du café de la petite ville où il est. Cette ville s'appelle Wayward Pines. Il finit par se rappeler pourquoi il y est, son ancienne équipière et un collègue y ont disparu il y a quelques mois. Mais bien que tout le monde l'écoute, y compris le shérif local, bienveillant lui aussi, personne ne comprend sa requête. Non, personne n'a disparu. Non, personne n'est au courant de rien. Il ouvre un annuaire téléphonique, tente de contacter plusieurs personnes, mais il n'y a pas de sonnerie.

En y réfléchissant, il trouve que cette ville est bizarre. Elle est très jolie, les gens sont très bienveillants, mais tout paraît... Bizarre. Par exemple il n'y a pas de téléphones portables. Pas d'Internet. Tout semble dater des années 50. Et impossible de sortir de la ville. D'ailleurs la route qu'il se souvenait avoir prise pour venir semble avoir changé car... Elle tourne en rond. Elle sort de la ville pour en revenir de l'autre côté. Le silence est oppressant. Il en arrive même à se demander si les bruits des insectes qu'il entend sont réels.

I loved the mystery in this book, I was hooked from the very beginning, eager to know what the mystery was all about. Without giving any spoilers, I can just say that I had some ideas about the explanation of everything, but in the end it was something different, and yet believable with the rest of the book, which is always good!

Some parts are a bit harsh though, it makes sense with the story but I could have lived without the gory details.

I like the book's pace. It brings you from one page to another like you couldn't wait for a second. You're forced to thinking, assuming, wondering in every page of what's actually happened. I found some words are unusual for me, but I still can enjoy the whole story. I do recommend this book for all suspense and mistery lover. You like Lost ? Then you'll definitely love Wayward Pines.

HASH(0x8d396720) étoiles sur 5 Right out of "The Twilight Zone!!" 2 juillet 2012

Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Wow! Was NOT expecting that ending! Talk about blowing your socks off! The Pines is not what you expect in any way, shape or form. A bit of horror, a bit of sci-fi, some action, lots of suspense, some mystery, a bit of intrigue all thrown together that works oh so well together.

Don't let the title of the book fool you as this is one heck of a good book and once you get past the first three pages, you are definitely hooked and you can't let go until it is finished and you will not be disappointed. An intricate storyline that doesn't confuse you or lead you astay. Just a hell of a good story with well defined characters.

I am a first time reader of Mr. Crouch's and I am really impressed by his writing. If this is any kind of indication of his type of writing then I will be buying some of his books. Don't pass this one up as it is that good!

HASH(0x8d704b40) étoiles sur 5 Pining Away for Home 9 juillet 2012

Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
A secret service agent wakes up injured in Wayward Pines, Idaho. His partner is missing, and he's on a mission to find two other agents who had previously gone missing. He's been in an auto accident, but the hospital doesn't have his wallet or phone, and neither does the sheriff. Everyone acts just a bit ... off. He can't seem to leave town, and even begins to doubt his own sanity.

I can't even tell you the proper genre of this book without it being a spoiler. Suffice to say it isn't quite a straightforward mystery or thriller. It's very well written and suspenseful, and pretty believable right up until the last chapter. Once you find out what's been going on though, it really strains credibility. Four secret service agents go missing in one small Idaho town, and nothing ever came of it? Why was such a confrontational method chosen to introduce newcomers to the town? What is the long term plan?

If the ending had tied things up more cleanly and logically, and the core premise been less odd, I would have given this 5-stars. Instead I finished what had been a pretty enjoyable reading experience just shaking my head. Call this one a near miss.

I always have a mix of sorrow (for my strained budget) and joy (for a new discovery) when I try a book by an author I've never encountered and find that the writing, or subject, or plot devices, suit me to a T and now I'm forced to get other books by that author. That's what happened with "Pines". Blake Crouch has written a bunch of books and short stories, some in tandem with other authors, but I never encountered any of them before. I selected this from the Amazon Vine newsletter based on the blurb, about a Secret Service agent sent to locate two missing agents, and how he winds up in Wayward Pines, Idaho, which is apparently out of touch with the rest of the world. It's almost impossible to describe anything about the plot without giving it away, but I can state that it's an unusual take on a couple of popular sci-fi/fantasy themes. Unfortunately, there are a few serious flaws in the world creation of Mr. Crouch, but again, I can't describe them without revealing surprises best left to the reader to encounter. All I can really say is that I enjoyed this story tremendously and definitely want to read more of his books. The hero, Ethan Burke, is a level-headed guy with a loving wife and young son and a decent job in the Secret Service, after a military career that almost ended his life. Wayward Pines is a charming town filled with friendly people, but something isn't making sense. The more Ethan tries to figure things out, the more confused he gets, until the stunning climax. In this case, for Ethan, only seeing is believing. But once seen and believed, what will the future hold?

HASH(0x8d207468) étoiles sur 5 One of the best books I read in 2012 1 janvier 2013
Par BradC - Publié sur Amazon.com

I read a lot of books in 2012, mostly science fiction, and this was one of the best. The story was fascinating, but I had this nagging feeling that there was no way the author was going to be able to come up with a plausible explanation for all the elements of the story. I was very pleased and a little surprised when I got to the end and found that the author DID pull it all together with an explanation for all the strange things the main character had experienced. I look forward to reading more by Blake Crouch.

HASH(0x8d207450) étoiles sur 5 Science Fiction at its Worst - So glad I didn't pay for this one 19 août 2014
Par Rachel_USN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I cannot believe this book got so many good reviews. I’m so glad I didn’t pay for it.

I’d rather read the book of “Sharknado,” if there is one.

The first two chapters were decent enough that I kept reading, but by about the halfway point I just got annoyed and reverted to skimming in order to hurry up and get to the point. Like other reviewers, I didn't know this was going to be a cheap sci-fi novel until I was about 70% into the story.

So many problems, where do I begin?

1) The main character is unlikeable. The author poorly applied the “federal agent with a history of military combat and prisoner of war” veneer in an attempt to force the reader to like him, but really, he’s just an ass. I kept waiting for some redeeming qualities, but they never came.

2) The writing is very basic with multiple fragments, unnecessary and repetitive descriptions, and incomplete sentences. It’s definitely not a challenging read, but at one point I felt like I was back in high school reading short stories in my 9th grade English class. In this case, shorter would have been better as the pain would have ended sooner.

3) The “thriller” portion of the story comes from the unnecessary and inexplicable violence and agonizingly long chase sequence. There is an attempt to explain it at the end, but it is incredibly weak and reminds me of listening to self-aggrandizing college freshmen arguing during a philosophy 101 class.

4) The science is bad. ***SPOILER WARNING*** I can’t go into the details without giving away the ending, not that there was much of an ending to begin with…

- We find that the “mastermind” of Wayward Pines is a “genius” geneticist who was able to somehow look into his genetic crystal ball in the 70’s and see how the human species would evolve over time – and it wasn’t pretty.

- The reason for why humans evolve into these sinewy beast-like primal hairless creatures with talons? Because humans trashed the planet to the point that the earth became “toxic,” so human DNA becomes "corrupted" leading to the evolution of a new race in order to be able to survive in the "toxic" environment. (It’s no wonder this book has been picked up for a TV series – it’s the same trite, self-loathing, we-are-such-horrible-creatures attitude that the celebrities have adopted as the newest trend in cinema.) Interestingly, however, the toxic environment is described as simply a world taken over by forestation. Not to mention, no one seems to be having any trouble breathing in the environment, there are no new animals or toxic species introduced, no exotic creative creatures who have also had to adapt to the toxic environment except for these poorly described humanoid creatures that remind me of the zombies from I am Legend.

- So our story actually takes place 1800 years in the future. We are told that the genius geneticist threw his massive personal fortune (because all the scientists I know are also billionaires) into research and development and long-story-short, creates Wayward Pines into the last secure town on earth, with a giant bunker, and a monitoring station, and a small city where all the unsuspecting people live like they’re in Mayberry Days - akin to The Truman Show.

So how is everyone here still alive? Suspended animation of course – with a one-sentence explanation as to how that was possible. The theory is that he is “saving the pure human race” by having abducted over 600 hundred people during the 1980s-2030s and putting them in suspended animation in order to ride out the storm of evolution, so to speak. The only problem is, no one knows how or why they got to Wayward Pines, so they live their lives in fear and confusion with intermittent displays of brutal savagery that just doesn't gel.

So what’s wrong with this story? If humans are so terrible, which is demonstrated in the horrific display of grotesqueries that occur to those who don’t assimilate, then what is the purpose of saving the “pure” human race in the first place? Wouldn't it have been better to just let us all be slowly wiped out - I mean we're such pathetic creatures anyway... The scientist comes off as sociopathic, not heroic, and the effort at scientific explanations for all of this leaves much to be desired. I doubt our author has touched foot in a biology class since high school, and if his writing is at all reminiscent of his understanding of federal agents, then I can only assume he has spent most of his life watching tv and playing video games rather than actually interacting in the real world.

Summary:

It’s like someone tried to throw Twin Peaks, Island of Dr. Moreau, and The Cabin in the Woods into a blender and came out with something completely inedible. There is a quote from one of Michael Crichton’s books in the back of the book, which felt reminiscent of the Stolen Valor Act. I actually felt shame and sadness that Crichton’s name would even be mentioned alongside this poor attempt at science-fiction drivel. This book and Crichton's book should never be mentioned in the same sentence again.
