The Institute, the new horror/thriller by Stephen King is a novel I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys this genre. The book follows a boy named Luke. He is a 12 year old boy genius who has been kidnapped and is being held against his will in a place known as “The Institute.” It is an evil place, run by an abusive staff, where children are tested and experimented on. This book reminded me of early (1980’s) Stephen King novels, when he was at the absolute top of his game. The characters were great and the book kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I highly recommend this book.
