Plot summary (from the back cover): US Marshall Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to find an escaped murderer named Rachel Solando.
The closer Teddy gets to the truth, the more elusive it becomes. And the more he begins to believe that he may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive him insane…
Opinion/Comments: A very entertaining, yet compelling story. The book has so many twists and turns that there comes a time when you think that nothing is real and nobody can be trusted.
Also in this case I think that you should take a look at Martin Scorsese’s film version. I’d say it shows nearly 100% of what you find in the book.
Valoración personal: 10/10
