We will begin the discussion series with Dennis Lehane's psychological thriller Shutter Island. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels attempts to solve the mystery of a patient who escapes a fortress-like mental institution built on an isolated island. Daniels soon discovers the institution itself may be harboring dark secrets. Martin Scorsese adapted the book to the 2010 film Shutter Island, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Teddy Daniels.
What critics have said about Lehane's Shutter Island:
"[Lehane] returns with another blistering page-turner"- Joanne Wilkinson, Booklist
"My high concept definition of this fast-paced, brilliantly written and extremely disturbing book: Indiana Jones meets Dr. Who"- Beth Anderson, Rendezvous Review
"...carries an ending so shocking yet so faithful to what has come before, that it will go down as one of the most aesthetically right resolutions ever written"- Publishers Weekly
Light refreshments will be served during the discussion.Copies of the book are available at the Reader Services desk on the 3rd floor, but feel free to come enjoy the movie with or without the book.
