So I finished reading Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. I must have heard his name before as he actually wrote Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, which also have film versions. I was amazed by just how similar the book and film versions are, something that I find to be rather rare. It seems the film kept a good amount of dialogue in tact, as well as leaving the plot and sequence of events relatively unchanged. That being said, if you have seen the film reading the book won’t be very surprising, though I enjoyed them both.
