If you haven’t read “Shutter Island” yet, you should run out and go get it. I’ll be here when you get back. Unless Skynet takes over and then, won’t it be really fortunate that you have a book to read? Exactly. Plus, you’ll be even more thankful that you grabbed one of Dennis Lehane’s strongest works. Coming off of writing “Mystic River,” Lehane wanted to write a novel that would see the style of the Bronte sisters had they been influenced by the pulp of the 1950s American scene.

It’s gritty, surreal, and definitely worth the cost of a paperback.

But if you are morally opposed to reading, the film adaptation is coming down the pipeline – starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Michelle Williams and Mark Ruffalo. And, most importantly, it’s being directed by Martin Scorsese.
