Dan Crawford is spending 6 weeks during the summer between his junior and senior years in high school involved in the New Hampshire College Prep Program in history and science. The regular dormitories on campus are being renovated, so the students are staying at Brookline, which is the former psychiatric asylum on campus. Right after Dan arrives, he meets his strange roommate, Felix along with Abby and Jordan who he spends time with. Felix tells Dan of strange pictures he found in the other wing of Brookline and practically dares Dan to go and look. Dan, Jordan, and Abby find the strange pictures along with lots of other documentation left there from when the hospital was still open. Not only are the pictures horrific, but the documentation describes horrible experiments performed on the patients. Abby is drawn to the picture of a girl who has apparently had a lobotomy. After leaving, all three begin to act strangely, and when one of the dorm monitors is murdered, they begin to suspect one another.

Asylum is a creepy book filled with found photographs from actual insane asylums that are very scary. The author did a good job of incorporating those photographs as part of the background in the story. Although the book is light on character development, the unique story is enough to keep the reader interested. Overall, a creepy tone in a scary story, ending with a bit of a cliffhanger leading into the next book in the series. ( )

“Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.”
― Madeleine Roux, Asylum

As always my reviews are based off of my true and honest opinion and I do my best to keep all reviews spoiler free.
Dan Crawford goes to a college prep at Brookline. There he meets and makes two friends. Abby and Jordan. Right away strange and weird things start happening to Dan. They find an entrance to the old Brookline asylum. Which is just scary and creepy and more and more weird happens to Dan. It doesn't take long for the trio to team together and go deeper into the old asylum looking for answers to secrets from the past.

Ok so first off, I scare really easily. Like I scare when noone understands what scared me. However, I did not find this book scary at all. I think that the author was trying to do jump scares which is hard to pull off in a book. Other than that though it was a great book. I found the characters to be wonderful. I relate with the main character especially. I like the friendship that develops between the three character. Its not a magically perfect friendship. There is work involved to keep it together making it realistic. I didn't like the romance though. It felt wrong and forced. The plot was good. I kept thinking I knew exactly what was going on and it turns out I was always wrong. It was fast paced and easy to read. A little too easy maybe as it made for a really quick read. The pictures were great though. They didn't always fit in with the story at the time, but they were till fun to see. All in all I would say its certainly a fun read. ( )

“A loucura é algo relativo. Depende muito do lado da grade em que a pessoa está.” Ao entrar pela primeira vez na New Hampshire College, Dan Crawford não tem ideia de que viverá neste lugar as cinco semanas mais intensas de sua vida. Como os alojamentos estavam em reforma, os alunos estão instalados na ala desativada de um sanatório. Quando Dan e seus amigos, Abby e Jordan, começam a explorar os corredores e o sótão, descobrem que aquele edifício não era um instituto para doentes mentais comuns, pois por ali passaram psicopatas, homicidas; gente extremamente perigosa. No entanto, a presença dos três ali não é obra de um mero acaso, pois o asilo é a chave para um passado terrível e segredos que se recusam a ficar enterrados. Com fotos e cartas ilustrativas, Asylum é um suspense arrepiante e diferente de tudo o que você já leu. Uma história de terror na fronteira entre a genialidade e a loucura.

A friend in Slowly app mentioned this book.
Until the end, I keep on wondering what's the point of this story.
It's like spending hours trying to figure out how you got involved in a mess.
There's more to this story, but I don't want to waste my time in slow-paced books.

It's still useful in the 2020 PopSugar Reading Challenge: a character with vision impairment/enhancement

Creepy as hell! When I finished reading this I still wasn't sure what was going on. And it's not over - not yet. I guess you could say that I was expecting a ghost story; something that was scary and just right for Halloween. I am not sure if I would classify this as a ghost story or a story of possession. Does this tiny detail matter though? No, at least I don't think so. There were some awkward moments. The first one being Felix. But, he was an awkward character to begin with so. . . I guess I should have expected that. The other awkward thing was how quickly the friendship between Jordan, Abby and Daniel came together and then came apart. Yes, the program is only 5 weeks, but still! I guess it was how quickly it came apart that really bothered me. Other than that, I really enjoyed this one. Books that leave with more questions than answers always bother me. While this book was intriguing enough for me to want to get my hands on book 2 as quickly as possible, if I don't get the answers that I need I am not sure if I will continue past book 2.
