The doors of The Institute are open!

September 10, 2019

The long wait is over, The Institute has arrived, in all its splendid editions, and the reviews are flooding in:

‘His immaculate sense of place, his flawless ear for dialogue, that intangible literary quality we refer to as voice – these are the reasons we return to King, and in King it is the voice that persists’ GUARDIAN

‘His best book in years’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

‘With this high-concept, multi-themed novel, the legendary author has delivered a cracker’ SUNDAY MIRROR

‘A testament to the power of resilience and friendship… a book that asks hard questions, makes you laugh, howl in outrage and sometimes tear up, and shows convincingly both how depraved and how noble humans can be. It does everything you’d expect of a masterpiece – and it is one’ SUNDAY EXPRESS

‘The most purely Stephen King book he’s written in years…. Few other writers can pull off this kind of compulsive storytelling at such a level’ SFX

‘An absorbing thriller’ MAIL ON SUNDAY

‘Classic King’ DAILY MAIL

‘King has become a formidably versatile author, enabling him to pull off a captivating, hybrid novel that shape-shifts through several genres’ THE SUNDAY TIMES

‘Everything you would expect from King is here… hums and crackles with delicious unease’ INDEPENDENT
