The InstituteThe Institute by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


An entertaining, well-paced tale about children locked up by a mysterious institute that exploits their latent supernatural abilities. There are many throwbacks to earlier King (Firestarter being the most obvious), but this story is original and the characters, particularly the children, are well realised.

Autobiography of DeathAutobiography of Death by Kim Hyesoon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A haunting book of poetry comprised of forty-nine poems, each poem representing a single day during which the spirit roams after death before it enters the cycle of reincarnation. The poet was inspired by a 2014 ferry that capsized in South Korea and drowned 250 high school students. The poet examines what life and death mean and what it must be like on the other side. While not for everyone, this is strange and powerful poetry that deserves a strong audience.
