Pines (The Wayward Pines Trilogy 1) by Blake Crouch

2.0 out of 5 stars Questionable description, Aug. 22 2013
Well written and cohesive, this book rates better than the two stars I just gave it, but only in one way -- if you throw out the book description. I expected this to be a good detective/secret service/police tale, but the 'fantasy' nature of the story really surprised me and disappointed. If you want fantasy (monsters, weird science) with your crime, you might enjoy this. I don't, so I didn't.

The first time I saw a ad for this movie I was definitely interested... then I found out 'little Tom' was going to play Reacher. What a JOKE.

Not that Cruise is a bad actor, and not that he doesn't do action well -- he is, and he does -- but the whole ethic of Lee Child's Reacher demands at least moderately good casting and not this farce with 'Tom Thumb'

What did I think of the movie? Maybe a 2 stars but no more. The whole time was I was wishing the real Reacher would come in and kick the pretend one's butt.

Gotta tell it like it is, folks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starting to lose it, March 11 2012
While I enjoyed the first two books in this series, I have to say that this one DISAPPOINTED. There was none of the anticipation building as in the first two, nor was there anything new. Hamilton may come back with a good story, but my hopes are not high after reading this one.

AND, is this bugging anyone else: ...yet another STARBUCKS VIA instant coffee... how much does this guy get paid to write that cr*p? The only one who has done it worse recently is Larrson and his Dragon Tattoo APPLE fetish. Get over it boys -- it shows lack of effort (oh, and I know Stieg Larsson is dead).
