Finished a Book: "Shutter Island"

Way back in April I started reading a book. There were a few false starts. And then summer happened. I carried the book on vacation with me and then again back home. Never picking it up.

About a month ago I finally got back to it. Fearing that I'd forgotten all of the characters, I started from the beginning. Again. This time I finished.

Even though it took many, many months to get myself going, I did like the book. My reason for choosing this one was because I wanted to read it before seeing the movie. I enjoyed the movie interpretations of Dennis Lehane's other books but had never actually read one of the novels.

My intent of these posts is not to turn in a book report or even a book review. So I will not go into many details about the story itself. You can read that on Amazon. I will say that once I got far enough into the book to become invested in the characters it was a pretty quick read. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story which kept me guessing until the end.
