    A 2020 Thriller/Suspense Audie Award winner!

    A New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2019 selection

    From number one New York Times best-selling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It. 

    “This is King at his best” (The St. Louis Post-Dispatch). 

    In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis' parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there's no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents - telekinesis and telepathy - who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and 10-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, "like the roach motel," Kalisha says. "You check in, but you don't check out."

    In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don't, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

    As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is “is another winner: creepy and touching and horrifyingly believable, all at once” (The Boston Globe).

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Stephen King's newest audiobook is compulsively entertaining and features a dazzling performance by narrator Santino Fontana.... Fontana does wonders with this diverse lineup of young characters who band together to fight their captors. Each of them sounds authentic and unique. Meanwhile, the adult characters, with a few exceptions, are a nightmarish bunch. Through them, Fontana shows that evil can have many different voices.... [King's] and Fontana's talents are a winning combination." (AudioFile magazine)

    Sadly just a so so, once more

    Well, it’s still King; meaning it’s entertaining enough. However, I really have issues with the character development. As example a kid, who is introduced as a very powerful telepath but at the same time immature even for his age of 10.
    Suddenly however, this one is behaving in a overly mature way - more or less just out of the blue.
    All in all, the book seems rushed (despite its length) and somehow fragmented. Don’t really know how to put it otherwise.
    If you like King and have no issues with let’s say The Arena (which I found really weak), you may well enjoy this one, too.
    If you are looking for another classic by SK you might be disappointed.

    An almost familiar story

    Kind of get the feeling that Stephen King spent most of his time preparing to write this book by watching Stranger Things.
    The story of the institute itself had a very familiar feel too it.
    Not the best narrations ever, some listeners will find him annoying.

    Großartig!

    Sehr gutes King Buch. Erinnerte mich sehr an "Firestarter". Nur der Vorleser könnte etwas besser sein.

    No Stephen King fan should miss this one

    Once upon a time it was Dinky Earnshaw who killed people remotely he was pointed to by a man who hired him. And that short story came to mind listening to this book. Then there was The Firestarter created by secret ecperiments and unleashed by the short sighted attempt to contain that secret. Stehpen King took those elements to the next level and made this book one of his finest stories in my opinion. The monsters in this story are far too real and who is to say there aren't any Institutes like it somewhere?

    Great story loosing steam at the finish line.

    Great and very creative storyline. Well narrated. However, I would have loved a more decisive finale.

    loved the story and the narrator

    Some reviews complain about how this is "a story told many times", but honestly which isn't? Everything is following tropes or natural guidelines, that's just the nature of storytelling. Important is how the story is brought across, and once again Mr. King did a good job. i loved the characters, even the ones that I despised and the emotions. Mr Fontana did a great job narrating everything: reading pace, voice acting and accents (though I can't judge american accents, I'm german) and the nuances of each characters.
    All in all very recommendable and worthwhile

    Gefällt

    Sprecher: super. Geschichte: spannend (fast wie früher) Länge: lang, aber fast nie langweilig. Natürlich gibt es ein paar Plot holes, aber, naja, es ist nur ne Story :)

    interesting but too long

    the story is dragged out to long and does not do justice to the characters. the premise is interesting but the full explanation at the end feels forced. like a bond villain explaining all his plans. narrator does a good job with the different voices even though i am not a big fan of the voice.

    Spannende Idee, gibt interessante Anreize

    Das Buch hat sehr gut gefallen, allerdings gab es einige Stellen die etwas langwierig waren oder besser hören beschrieben werden können.
    Die Idee hinter dem Buch ist sehr spannend.
