At the end of last month, I had started reading “The Institute”, by Stephen King. It’s between a mystery and horror story. It takes place in a secret facility where children with TP (telepaths) and TK (telekinetics) are taken and used to see how those two types of abilities can be used. While at “The Institute”, the children are given tests and have rooms that are supposed to look like their own bedrooms, but aren’t, of course. There is two parts to the “The Institute” and they’re called the Front Half and the Back Half. The front is where some of the newcomers stay for a few days and then depending on how they do, then they are moved to the Back Half.
Luke ( Lucas) Ellis had been planning a way to get out of “The Institute” after seeing what the Staff does to the children. He snuck out of his room and started shoveling under a chain fence that was in the playground area. On the way to going underneath the fence, he got cut on the legs, cheek and shoulder blades. He got out on the other side of the fence and started trying to figure out where he could go to get help from the Police that was farther away from “The Institute” as much as possible so no one would discover that he had gotten away from “The Institute” and try to bring him back.
Luke found a train that was delivering potatoes in boxes and snuck onto the train without the Conductor or the other train Staff knowing he was there. He snuck behind a few boxes and took a nap. The train Staff hadn’t seen him even while they were unloading the boxes to the next stop for delivery.
While Luke has been on the train, Maureen (a cleaner) was found in a room that hadn’t been used by any of the children, yet. The Head of Maintenance was called by Mrs. Sigsby (Director of “The Institute”) to come to the room where Maureen was found. Maureen had committed suicide so that Luke’s disappearance wouldn’t be noticed and they all couldn’t question where he has gone.
We’ll see what happens next.
What have you been planning to read or just started? We’d love to hear all about it.
The next book I plan to read after “The Institute”, by Stephen King will be: “Saving Sarah”, by Melissa Storm.
