Shutter Island

Summer, 1954.
U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels s 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.
Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe's radical approach to psychiatry; an approach that may include drug experimentation, hideous surgical trials, and lethal countermoves in the shadow war against Soviet brainwashing ...
Or is there another, more personal reason why he has come there?
As the investigation deepens, the questions only mount. The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they my never leave Shutter Island.
Because someone is trying to drive them insane ...

Well I was really hopping to see the movie b/f writing this blog...however its been in between the big theater & dollar movie for at least two weeks now...I'm sure since I'm going to go ahead and post this it will most likely appear at the dollar when they update this Thursday.... So anyways I really had a hard time getting into this book...ask everyone at work I think I carried it around for like 2months only on page 26. Once I finally sat down and got into it, it became hard to put down. I will say there is a twist you don't (or I didn't) see coming at the end!! I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see the movie!!
