GRIPPING FROM THE GET GO!!
Stephen King has done it again. The story and characters will draw you in from the very beginning.
another great title from the master of macabre.
The narrator does an amazing job voicing the many different accents as well as the ages of the plethora of characters throughout the story.
The only thing that may be considered by some listeners as potentially distracting is that the narrator sometimes gets stuck in the voice of the main character involved in the later chapters and reads the whole chapter in that voice.
but this isn't that bad if you can get over it. all in all the narrator did an amazing job keeping Up with the many different voices for the characters.
please don't let this little mishap deter you from experiencing the journey of "The Institute"
