Summary from Goodreads:
"U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Along with his partner, Chuck Aule, he sets out to find an escaped patient, a murderess named Rachel Solando, as a hurricane bears down upon them.
But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems.
And neither is Teddy Daniels."
I absolutely loved this book! This is the best type of suspense/thriller that is out there in my opinion. Shutter Island has a creepy atmosphere that drew me into the story from the very beginning. I would be planning on just reading a few more pages and then would find myself still reading an hour later. I literally could not put this book down. Teddy Daniels was a great main character. He was very likeable but from the beginning there are questions as he seems to have his own motives. There were tons of twists and turns within the story and the ending...wow! I mean WOW! But that is all I can tell you without giving anything away. So I'm going to stop there.
Really this is a book that I will definitely be recommending to everyone that I come across. And I know that makes for a really short review but honestly I think that it is better going into this book knowing as little as possible. If you enjoy suspense and thrillers at all then you really need to pick this book up.
P.S.- I am now dying to see the movie!!! Plus, it has Leonardo DiCaprio in it...what could be better?
Disclaimer: I checked this one out from the library too...as usual.
