Audiobook Review - Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
So, today, I'm giving my review for Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. I'd never heard of the book before - I'd only seen the previews for the movie - which looked amazing. When I saw it listed on another website for being a great audiobook (yes - I search A LOT of sites looking for great audiobooks) - I just knew I HAD to get it. First, props to narrator Tom Stechschulte for doing an amazing job. He really gives each character feeling - and I was able to paint an amazing portrait in my mind of the entire book.
So... here's the story...
Two US marshals, Teddy Daniels and Check Aule go to investigate a missing person report on Shutter Island - a combo mental health ward/jail. After investigating the scene... all signs point toward it being an inside job. Soon, both marshals are ready to head off the island, when a hurricane hits, causing an extra dose of chaos in an already unstable situation...
And, toward the end - I could see what was coming... well, what I THOUGHT was coming! The author totally took a left turn, leaving me absolutely speechless!
The bottom line - should you listen to this audiobook? Of course! It genius!
