Book Review: Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

bookThis book was engaging, I enjoyed the plot. The beginning is a little slow at times but it picks up fairly quickly and gets really good about halfway through. There were more bad words than I thought the story needed, well actually just one bad word that was used a lot in the dialogue but it really wasn’t necessary. There were also 1-2 sex scenes (1 being rather graphic to me) that really didn’t add to the story and I didn’t feel were necessary at all. But other than that, the characters are interesting, the plot and setting are both fascinating. Overall, I would recommend it but only with the warning regarding the language and sex scenes.
