Shutter Island was the first Dennis Lehane novel I read (in 2004, I think), and I was completely blown away by the book. It is one of the best of its class (thrillers) throwing together a lot of scary elements such as an isolated island, a raging hurricane, a locked room, secret codes, a mental hospital, and rumors of mysterious medical experiments.
This book enthralled me when I read it, and I am extremely thrilled to see that it is coming out as a movie starring Leonardo diCaprio, and directed by Martin Scorsese. See trailer at the top of this post.
This seems like a perfect movie vehicle for Leonardo diCaprio, and I just cannot wait for it to hit cinema halls here.
How about you? Anyone excited to watch this movie? What did you think of the book?
Gosh! I am talking more about movies than books these days!! That’s new for me!
