“Shutter Island” by Dennis Lehane

Filed under: Dennis Lehane,Fiction,Thriller — marloneus @ 12:02 pm

What a fantastic mystery.  Very difficult to put it down.  Two men take a ferry to the infamous Shutter Island.  They find a missing patient,  insanity, secret codes, nightmares, doctors, a hurricane and a mystery patient-#67 that isn’t on the island…or is (s)he?.   Astute readers who enjoy solving mysteries may pick up on the clues as they start in the beginning and are peppered throughout this fast paced, exciting, novel.  A definite read.  I can’t wait to see the movie.  I did not figure it out until the end, but that is normal for me.  5 out of 5 stars.  I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a mystery!

A neighbor recommended I read Shutter Island.  Blog folks recommended The Time Traveler’s Wife.  Neither were available at the library so I went with another Dennis Lehane novel and absolutely LOVED it!  Great author, can’t wait to read Shutter Island

Blow Out by Catherine Coulter

Filed under: Mystery — marloneus @ 11:43 am

Superior story-Two murder mysteries going on at the same time!  Agent Savich is visited by a ghost in the first chapter then is quickly the lead in a vicious murder of  a supreme court judge.  Great character development, great ability to intertwine two separate story lines!  Catherine Coulter does it again.  A must read for Coulter fans.

“Under the Dome” by Stephen King

Filed under: Stephen King — marloneus @ 11:08 am

WOW!  Stephen King manages to take a cruel children’s pastime – burning ants with a magnifying glass and turns it into a brilliant Lord of the Flies modern-day novel. 

This story kept me riveted right until the very end and wanting more.  He does a great job developing each characters personality before the dome fell and morphing them into the cruel or heroic character created by the Dome!

Stephen has yet again made, creepy dreams  turn into reality.  He does a great job throwing in his otherworldliness just enough to make you think….hmmm….what if?

I recommend this book to all Faithful Fans of King.
