35. Pines - Blake Crouch

What just happened? There is no way in a million years anyone could come close to predicting how this one would turn out. I was left guessing what was happening the entire step by fast paced step.

It starts with a man waking up near the river. No idea who he is or where he is. The only thing he knows is that he's hurting, his eye is practically buttoned up and his side and back hurt with each excruciating step. When he finds himself back in the hospital it all comes back to him. He's Secret Service Agent, Ethan Burke, and he's searching for some missing colleagues. The town itself seems a little off and when events start to unravel he realizes he needs to escape from the little town of Wayward Pines and fast.

From the minute we meet Ethan he's go go go. I don't think he caught a break the entire time. Very difficult to piece together until the author wants you to know what's happening. I love how it all came together and how everything was answered in the end.

All in all I really enjoyed this one and I love how it kept going all the way to the end. Makes me want to see Twin Peaks.
