Institute Tapping into the minds of the young characters, King creates a sense of menace and intimacy that will have readers spellbound The mystery of the Institute s purpose is drawn out naturally until it becomes far scarier than the physical abuse visited upon the children Not a word is wasted in this meticulously crafted novel, which once again proves why King is the king of horror Agent

is another such world One in which had its ups and downs, but by the end takes you on a whirlwind of adventure and emotion.The book follows two separate threads, which eventually become intertwined through fate Tim Jamieson is a man with no particular direction When we meet him, he s on a flight to New York, but quickly becomes a drifter, in no real rush to get to his original destination He eventually makes his way to the small town of Dupray, where things are eventually going to heat up Our other main thread follows Luke Ellis, a boy genius attending a school filled with child prodigies Luke is a genius who stands out amongst a crowd of other special children Eventually, for reasons to be discovered he is kidnapped and taken to a place called The Institute, where other children are held against their will and subjected to all manner of horrible experiments.King does and excellent job of taking it easy and crafting the world his latest takes place in This is a slow burn for sure, and while that s mostly a good thing, there was a section of the book that felt a bit tedious There was a part towards the tail end of the first half that had I not been such a big fan of King, I might not have finished the book Despite this, I stuck it out to the end and ultimately am glad that I did Tim Jamieson is an ok character I didn t particularly like or dislike him He felt like a generic good guy archetype that you d could place in a random King story and he d probably fit in Luke Ellis was fleshed out and it was interesting to follow him along The supporting children in this book that you ll spend time with during Lukes thread were also a much better cast of characters than the supporting adults in Tim s thread Most of those characters felt like one dimensional country bumpkins with no real purpose other than to occasionally give Tim some dialogue and some country one liners For the most part, the book was very fascinating, and played off of fears of government conspiracies The children in this book are put through some horrifying scenarios, although it s a far stretch to try to call this particular novel horror The main complaint I have with The Institute is that somewhere after the first hundred pages or so, King went from world building to boring, and the book didn t pick up pace until about a hundred or so pages further The last 200 pages flew by once King finally put his foot on the gas, leading to a satisfying conclusion and curiosity as to who ended up being right I can t explain WHAT I m talking about as it has to due with the purpose of The Institute When it was all said and done, I needed some time to process this one It felt almost like a tale of two books The Institute starts off slow, yet strong King uses the early pages to craft a believable world and set the mood After a strong early start, King almost goes off the tracks and does a bit too much writing in circles It felt like anywhere from 50 100 pages could have been trimmed for a much stronger novel Just when I found myself questioning if I even wanted to finish, King stepped on the throttle and from there it never let up It should speak to the quality of the rest of the book that not only did I finish The Institute, but I still consider it worth a read As long as you don t expect a horror novel, and you can power through a boring section of the book, there s still something to enjoy.3.5 5 flag 5 likesLike see review Ellis whatellisreadnext I couldn t agree , found it hard to finish around the second 3rd of the book 20 hours, 30 min ago Aug 28,

painful punishments inflicted upon them They also mention The Back Half of the building, where kids are taken and never seen again Luke eventually realizes he must escape at any cost to save himself and the lives of countless children in the future Stephen King is possibly best known for his terrifying novels full of nightmarish creatures, but there s nothing supernaturally scary in The Institute The only horrors are the treatment of the children and the suspense of whether Luke will manage successfully escape King s writing brings you directly into Luke s thoughts and feelings, so when he was first struck by one of the caretakers, I felt the shock and disbelief as astutetly as if I myself had been slapped Although it seems impossible in theory that a place such as the Institute could exist, all the logistical details, coverups, and mindsets of the employees feel real That was the scariest thing about this novel wondering if something like this could happen Another strength of this book is King s ability to write children Most of the story is told from Luke s perspective and King captures a twelve year old s emotions, thoughts, and reactions like no other To make this task even difficult, he adds in Luke s exceptional intelligence and perfectly balances Luke s childlike experiences with his brilliant mind Since the book less than 600 pages, King also keeps the plot moving at a brisk pace, which is not always the case in his other novels The second half in particular will keep you flipping through the pages to discover the ultimate fate of the kids My only minor complaint was the inclusion of a few jabs at President Trump They felt unnecessary and petty and didn t contribute anything to the plot When it happened, it was the only time I felt jarred out of the story and back into real life I might just be getting tired of seeing political opinions inserted everywhere these days Undoubtedly though, this will go down as one of my favorite Stephen King books It s essentially an extremely well written and compelling thriller with a touch of the supernatural Appealing for Stephen King s devoted fans as well as those who aren t usually drawn to his books flag 1

in my mind that there was no chance it could live upto my expectations The story was interesting, the characters felt real, my main problem was the pacing For the first 200 pages the pace was slow and when things started to pick up, it still didn t feel suitably paced The concept was really interesting and I always love how he writes about the supernatural in a way that makes it believable I enjoyed the nods to his other works aswell, The Shining, Cell and The Outsiders to name a few If you re looking forward to this one, don t let my opinion put you off, I feel like a lot of people are
