Shutter Island | Dennis Lehane
post image
Pickpick

“Shutter Island” by Dennis Lehane is about Marshal Edward “Teddy” Daniel and his partner, Chuck Aule who go on a fairy to Shutter Island, the home of Ashecliffe hospital for the criminally insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient, Rachel Solando (who was incarcerated for drowning her three children). Despite being kept in a locked cell under constant supervision she has escaped the hospital, But quickly things change for the worse.

Thicdaddy Not the main theme of the book but my favourite theme I picked up on was Grief. Many of the characters in the book suffer from Grief over lost loved ones. Teddy, most obviously suffers from the memory of his wife Dolores, while chuck suffers angrily from the memory of his girlfriends internment. Rachel Solando has been driven mad by the grief of her husbands death, and grief for the loss of the children who she killed. now
Thicdaddy I would recommend this novel to people who love putting the pieces together as it is a perfect psychological thriller if you enjoy the book or movie of “American Psycho” I would definitely recommend you give this one a read. now
Thicdaddy I would rate Shutter Island 9.8/10 as it has a phenomenal main character, very unique plot, keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole read and at the end has you in awe of the entire story with all the the plot twists. It‘s not a 10/10 for me because at times it‘s almost too hard to follow. The story is in first person point of view of the protagonist Teddy Daniels now

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/4 Soft pick. This 📖 is about why it is unwise to travel on a sailboat to a remote 🏝 with strangers. If you are looking for a palate cleanser and gravitate toward suspense/thrillers, you‘ll likely enjoy this 📖. Choose it if you need a quicker read between heavy content/ door stops. The ending felt rushed and convenient. That being said, it met my need for a quick palate cleanser. 🛑: murder, death by cancer, car wreck

Mehso-so

Typical Political Thriller. Was fast paced but just meh. I was going to give it 3⭐, but something happened at the end that bumped it to 3.5⭐.

Thanks to Netgalley, Amazon Publishing UK and Turner for the Kindle Version of the book.

Took me a minute to get into this one, but it was ultimately so good! I really liked seeing all of Tress and Felicity's rocky history, and it felt so realistic that even when they hated each other, there was still a genuine bond underneath. Not sure the panther chapters really added anything to the story, though. #yalit #retellings

TheNeverendingTBR @Ast_Arslan The Stand is my favourite book of all time 😁 Lolita is a masterpieca of literature. My current read, I'm thinking I need to squeeze it into my top books list because I'm loving it so much! 13h
Eggs Thanks for joining in 🙌🏻 13h
Addison_Reads Come With Me was one of my favorite reads last year. I'd never read Malfi before but I will definitely be looking for more books by him. I can't wait to see what you think once you finish. 11h

1. I used to read off of my phone but often if I need a book along I tuck my kindle in my purse or put my headphones in for audible.
2. My kindle, I most recently bought the Oasis in a “treat yo self” moment. I‘ve had a kindle since the beginning, no regrets! It was amazing to have the whisper sync - downloads anywhere, at that time it felt like magic.
@JenReadsAlot thanks for the tag!
