Dy's Take

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

I haven’t seen the movie, but the trailers intrigued me enough that I decided to buy the book when it came across as a Kindle cheapie a couple of months ago. I am SO glad I did.  I read a lot of suspense/mystery/thrillers (though not, apparently, this year—how the heck is it that I bought an e-book reader and have read less this year than any of the previous 4?!) and can usually spot the ending by the middle of the book.

Two chapters away from the end and I didn’t see this coming. SO GOOD. I loved the little puzzles along the way and how, when Lehane spells it out for you at the end you can look back and see the clues he dropped, and still not have seen it coming…

  1. Hmm… I’ll have to bump this one up my reading list. It’s somewhere buried on my Kindle, I’m sure.
