This book is so creepy with the hissing lady and the nice man and the imaginary side. I had nightmares last night and that NEVER happens from a book!! And it has been super windy the last two days which didnt help me at all!

blurb

The Institute | Stephen King

First line: Half an hour after Tim Jamieson's Delta flight was scheduled to leave Tampa for the bright lights and tall buildings of New York, it was still parked at the gate.

blurb

The Institute | Stephen King

Last line: Better to save some for later.

blurb

The Institute | Stephen King

Because there was an abyss, and books contained magical incantations to raise what was hidden there: all the great mysteries.

blurb
rather_be_reading
The Institute | Stephen King

...the little girls, Gerda and Greta, were standing and watching with wide, frightened eyes. They were holding hands and clutching dolls as identical as they were. They reminded Luke of twins in some old horror movie.

WHOA!! I am now a King fan for sure! I had no doubts but you never know. This book was almost 600 pages and yet it kept my full attention every single sentence! The story was never dull or lacking. The thought that this story could be true is terrifying and I love a novel that makes you think afterward. It was not scary, gory or "horror" as I assumed it would it be. Def. recommend!

riversong153 I want to read this one. Trying to debate on buying or seeing if the library has it! 1w
rather_be_reading @riversong153 it was worth it to me and i never buy brand new hardcovers! 1w
