The kids are all right again, in Stephen King's world.
To say any more about what the Institute is or what happens to the gifted children imprisoned there would spoil the story, but it's classic King. The best scenes in the first half of the book are when the kids are talking with each other, trying to figure out where they are, why they're there, and eventually what to do about it. King has always had a great ear for childish conversation.

Anyone who avoids King because they don't like "horror" novels will be safe reading this one. It's more mystery than horror, with the evil concentrated on inhumanity. There's no bloody gore or supernatural forces, just adults treating children horribly. As the book climaxes and then reaches its resolution, you'll have to decide for yourself if the good or the bad guys win

Reacties op: The Institute is another winner: creepy and touching and horrifyingly believable, all at once
