Introduction

The basis for the blockbuster motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Shutter Island by New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane is a gripping and atmospheric psychological thriller where nothing is quite what it seems. The New York Times calls < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Shutter Island, “Startlingly original.” The Washington Post raves, “Brilliantly conceived and executed.” A masterwork of suspense and surprise from the author of Mystic River and Gone, Baby, Gone, Shutter Island carries the reader into a nightmare world of madness, mind control, and CIA Cold War paranoia and is unlike anything you’ve ever read before.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

  "One of the most compelling books I have ever read!"by christinemcarlson (see profile) 03/31/11

I was on the edge of my seat for the whole ride!

 
  "Shutter Island"by rosemhansen (see profile) 03/24/11

Most of our group has worked in a State Psychiatric Hospital so we found this book interesting.

 
  "Captivating!!!"by caralynn (see profile) 06/07/10

I literally could NOT put this book down - a great read from start to finish.

 
  "Excellent...A Must read!"by max6767 (see profile) 04/25/10

This was such a good book. I never saw the twist at the end coming. As soon as I finished reading the book, I began again at the beginning to see if I had missed clues to what the end would be.

  "A non-stop page turner!"by julialily (see profile) 02/04/10

Page after page of great, suspenseful writing keeps you hooked until the very end. I can't remember the last time I read a novel that was THIS engaging. Nearly impossible to put down until the last page... (read more)

 
  "A Mystery with a Twist"by donnadeleon (see profile) 10/19/08

An interesting mystery with a twist, and might generate some interesting group discussion. I found the ending disappointing.
