Once you get in, there's no getting out.
For 16-year-old Dan Crawford, a summer program for gifted students is the chance of a lifetime. No one else at his high school gets his weird fascinations with history and science, but at the New Hampshire College Prep program, such quirks are all but required.
Dan arrives to find that the usual summer housing has been closed, forcing students to stay in the crumbling Brookline dorm - formerly a psychiatric hospital. As Dan and his new friends Abby and Jordan start exploring Brookline's twisty halls and hidden basement, they uncover disturbing secrets about what really went on here - secrets that link Dan and his friends to the asylum's dark past. Because it turns out Brookline was no ordinary psych ward. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.
This mind-bending listening experience blurs the lines between past and present, friendship and obsession, genius and insanity.

I did love the book, it was a nice twist of things. I just didn't like some of the highschool drama that played out. Other than that it became a great story over time!
More like a psychological thriller. Suspenseful. Is it really happening? Is it a dream? It keeps you in question. I think this story would be a quick read and great for high school, or college kids.
Dan's roomate. He went through a transformation of being meek little nerd, to dedicating himself to become stronger.
The conversation that Dan's parents have about him and his past. It makes you wonder.
This was an outstanding book. Always having twists and turns and playing with your mind. The overall idea and story is phenomenal. The narrator made you feel Connected to the story and characters like you were in the mindset.
I'm a mom, stuck in a world of half finished projects.
I would choose to listen to Asylum again simply based no how quick of a read it was. It was designed in a way that flowed into predictable story lines. It was overall better than I expected.
