Grips you from the first page. The first few chapters of a lone traveler settling in a town offer some good character development and interesting story. Then you learn about The Institutionalization, where the book gets its name. This, too, offers excellent character development and imaginitive story. You wonder, though, HOW can these two completely different stories (in two very different parts of the country) related?? Well, we the reader certainly find out. What follows is a wild ride, for sure. Excellent story. Disturbing in every delicious way.

I found this book to be enticing from the very beginning. A story that seems oddly plausible which makes it that much more eerie. It is a long read, but in that are many details and such well written passages about the characters to love and cheer for. I enjoyed the ending and a few twists along the way.

This is in my top ten of Stephen King Books. I've read about 80% of his work. After the first 100 pages I couldn't put it down. The only thing that I did not like was that he inserted political views in the story that really did not need to be there. It had nothing to do with the story or the storyline or what was going on at the time that he writes it. I have mixed feelings about the last section of the book as well. It could have been done better. Otherwise it was a great story, great idea. Made you think "What if this is really going on?"
