During finals week I drove out to Wilbraham, MA to go to their library’s book sale. I picked up a few different books that I hope to read throughout the summer. I mean how could I resist it was $2 for a whole bag!
The first book I picked up was Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. I had seen the movie when I was in high school and was mind blown. Not only did the movie star Leonardo DiCaprio, the ending is crazy.
The book is about Teddy Daniels, a U.S. Marshall that goes to find a missing patient at a mental hospital. He and a partner travel to an island in Boston Harbor and have quite the adventure. I do not want to give too much away but the book plays with the idea of not being able to trust the narrator. A similar idea to Still Alice but in a different setting.
If you enjoy puzzles and mysteries this is definitely the book for you. There are so many twists it’s bound to keep you guessing. And if you like anagrams and codes keep a pen and paper nearby!
If you are looking for a thriller to take to the beach with you I would definitely recommend this! If you really want to feel immersed in the story, wait until Hurricane season…
Once you are done with the book, go rent the movie! It’s not on Netflix or Hulu right now but it is 100% worth the $3.99 on Amazon. I mean who can pass up watching Leo for a few hours…
Let me know what books you guys are reading in the comments!
