The Institute by Stephen King grabbed me and refused to let go until the final pages were read. I will admit that there were moments the suspense got so intense that I had to walk away from the book just to prepare myself for what the unknown in the upcoming chapters.
Nevertheless, I persisted and finished the book, and below is my review:
Stephen King is a master craftsman when it comes to storytelling. His books have been a staple of my yearly reading for over two decades, and I never tire of the tales he tells.
The Institute was a unique King reading experience. Rarely do I come across a book filled with so much suspense, intensity, and emotion that I have to take breaks to prepare for the next chapter. This was one of those books.
Part YA novel, part suspense-thriller, and part supernatural thriller, The Institute is King at his best. I loved every page, every chapter, and every character. Each element was expertly crafted and worked beautifully.
I rarely read books more than once, but this is definitely one I will read again.
I highly, highly recommend The Institute by Stephen King.
