    A few other great books I read not too long ago (based on recommendations here):

    - Replay (Ken Grimwood)
    - Wayward Pines (Blake Crouch)
    - Dark Matter (Blake Crouch)
    Another vote for all three of these. REPLAY, in particular, is an all-time favorite of mine.

    Yep, there has been some discussion before about Replay. It's a stand out and one of my favorite books.

    If there are any Follett fans out there, the third book in the Kingsbridge series is coming out in September. Proof copies are showing up on eBay.

    I've been wanting to read more Blake Crouch. I loved the Wayward Pines trilogy. So Dark Matter was good then?
    I am a huge Blake Crouch fan. I picked up Pines a few years ago and then proceeded to read almost everything by him. I highly recommend Run, Dark Matter, and his collection of short stories. Abandon and Snowbound were good as well, but I'd say start with the others first.

    Heather has it right...I also got on the Crouch bandwagon a year or two ago, and read most of his stuff in a burst...he has a very compelling way of telling a story. My favorites were, as Heather echoes, the PINES trilogy, DARK MATTER, and RUN (and in that order).

    Well, Heather, you are the reason I read the Pines triliogy, so I should probably listen to you. Thanks!

    I really do hope you enjoy his other books. Please let us know what you think once you read them. I love his fast paced way of storytelling.
