If I was one to cuss a lot, this would be an instance where I cuss out of shock from this book. "Pines" started out how I expected...but then just escalated up and up and up and the THREW ME FOR A GIANT SPINNING LOOP. I mean, I heard this was creepy and unexpected but that did nothing to prepare me for this wild ride.
I quite literally had to pace while reading parts of this, it made me so nervous and on edge! "Pines" has a staggeringly mysterious and intense plot. While the writing style itself is a bit stilted and could be more robust and descriptive, it's that achingly gasp-worthy plot that's gonna reel people in to the story. I can't WAIT to read the next book! I'll add more detail this review once I can get my thoughts together.… (mais)

i absolutely loved this book. great characters and concepts with many thrilling and tragic moments through out. the whole idea with alternate universes is not only a cool and crazy idea but it also reminds me of one of my favorite video game stories being Zero Escape 999 in some ways. so i was instantly hooked and can say this might be a contender of being an all time favorite for me

Five Star Entertainment from Start to Finish!

I listened to the audible version of this. Very entertaining, every time I thought I had it figured out, something else would happen going in another direction. Excellent character development, and an original story unlike any I've ever read.

Kind of reminded me of a cross between Michael Crichton and Stephen King (the **good** Stephen King, the one who wrote The Stand and The Shining, not the body snatcher from another planet currently occupying his body, churning out crap like "The Dome"...).

I've read Blake Crouch before but nothing that made an impression on me. This, however, was different and I couldn't stop until I finished it. I've already purchased the sequel and look forward to listening to it.

This is a fast-reading science-fiction thriller, and every time I picked it up, I sped forward in reading it. Without any doubt, Crouch did an absolutely stellar job with his concept, and for the most part, he made believable characters. I was rooting for the protagonist throughout, and enjoying the twists.

That said, it was an oddly stressful read because it moved so fast and things remained so desperate throughout. There were also some loose ends that I'd have preferred be cleared up, although I understand why they weren't, given the POV, and so those don't even bother me particularly. But all told, I'm not sure when/if I'll read more Crouch work. It was almost too much, too fast, and too open-ended for me to be 100% satisfied.

Still, it's a fantastic book worth reading. I'm just not sure I want more of the same flavor.
