Deep in the woods of Maine, there is a dark state facility where kids, abducted from across the United States, are incarcerated. In the Institute they are subjected to a series of tests and procedures meant to combine their exceptional gifts - telepathy, telekinesis - for concentrated effect. Luke Ellis is the latest recruit. He's just a regular 12-year-old, except he's not just smart, he's super-smart. And he has another gift which the Institute wants to use....
Narration was amazing!

First of many King's novels.
Since this is my first King's novel and my first time listening to the whole book, my review will be limited by the fact. It's fast paced enough to keep me on my toes, I think it ended very well. Slightly anticlimactic but I think this is mitigated by the fact that they introduce a lot of other elements outside just the institute which keeps this from being dull or simple.
