I am 25% away from finishing it and I have not touched the book. I literally enjoyed this story so much I am afraid to finish it. The characters, twists and action packed pages have left me on the edge of my seat. I read through about 70% of the book within the first two days. It’s an amazing read, I have yet to be disappointed. The length is understandable because we all know he doesn’t leave lose ends unless he meant to. The back and forth from Luke to the search party gave me anxiety. I literally can and cannot wait to finish this read.
Great job Stephen King. Seriously, you killed it.
I must say I’m sorry this book came to an end. Really enjoyed the suspense and the characters and all the craziness that seemed believable.
I’m giving it 5 stars because I’m on the train going home after work and I’m sorry it’s over. Well done Mr. King!

OMG what just happened
This was my first Stephen King novel and I absolutely loved it. It was refreshingly original with haunting allusions from the nonfiction past and present. The entire first 650 pages or so of the 710 pages were absolutely perfect—then it seemed as if someone called King and told him it’s getting too long and he needs to wrap it up quick and it needs to be something they can turn into a movie. So while the first 97% was perfection, the last 3% (ending) felt incredibly rushed with minimal details and a resolution that felt more like an avalanche of loose ends being tied.
Great read worth it for the first 97%
Will try more!
I was on a plane that was about to take off when I realized I had no book to read. So in a pinch I quickly browse and see the institute buy it and started to read it.
I had to force myself to quit reading it so I could sleep and do other activities. This was an amazing book. I felt so connected with each character. I can’t wait to pick up another one of Stephen Kings books.
Read this book! But be sure to clear your schedule cause you will be in for the long haul with it.😊
This book was so much better than the last couple King has written. I hope this means the old Stephen King is back.
