Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Idea"

    I really enjoyed the idea of this book. But I feel it needed to be a bit more developed personally. This book is perfect for younger thrill seekers.

    Story
    "Fun & Scary-ish"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Asylum to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dan's roomate. He went through a transformation of being meek little nerd, to dedicating himself to become stronger.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Goldstrom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The conversation that Dan's parents have about him and his past. It makes you wonder.

    Story
    "More of a teen read"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I found it slow moving and I did not like the narrators voice.


    Would you recommend Asylum to your friends? Why or why not?

    No I would not because I do not know anyone who would be interested in such a book


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No i would not go and see it. Too slow moving

    "Great book!"

    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!

    Story
    "Page Turner"

    This book is written so that at in the end of every chapter you are waiting for what comes next. The writing is not terribly stylistic, but it is strong Great read for teens and anyone who loves a mist weary.

    Story
    "Slow with irrelevant details"

    I was was expecting a lot of action and suspense, but the majority of the book focused on the friendship of the characters. There is nothing dramatic about their friendship either.
    The story was a cool concept, but overall it was pretty boring

    Just a Northern MN girl in love with books...so much that she shares her passion. Teaching is NOT just a career; it is a choice and calling

    "More..."

    I guess I wanted a little more, even knowing it is a young adult read. Going to see how the teens liked it.
