Shutter Island Wow what a great read. I watched some of the movie years ago but it thru me off so turned it off told myself I would try again. And now I am happy to have read the book before I do. Made me sad but it touched me I couldn't but it down. Bravo !
Great If you really cant make it to page 40 of this book without being hooked, maybe you should stick to short stories ;) I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The ending is fu*cking insane. Well worth the money
Must buy This book is phenomenal!!! Page turning til the very end.
