As the investigation deepens, the questions only mount. The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island because someone is trying to drive them insane ...

Outstanding psychological thriller set in the 50s
Shutter Island was an amazingly enjoyable audiobook, from the first to last sentence. Tom Stechschulte does a great job with the narration, as he usually does.
But it's the story that really hooked me. I don't leave many reviews, but had to mention my surprise at how ingenious this story is, and how well it flows toward the surprise ending (I really didn't see it coming).
US Marshall's suspect that some illegal activities are taking place at a prison for the criminally insane. The Marshall's are welcomed to the island, but quickly feel they're being given the runaround.
The suspense builds and never lets up, one of the most enjoyable reads in months.

WOW! A great find....finally!
Read the book before you see the movie!! Actually.... skip the movie! LOVED this book! I've read / listened to over 100+ books in the past 2 years and have never written a review. I just had to on this one. The narrator was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Every character had a distinct voice and in a few places he had to switch back and forth at lightening speed....and he did! Excellent job on his part. Hats off! The story was as good as the story teller.Something interesting happened quite often and I found myself trying to figure things out too...right along with the main character.
If twists and turns are what you like, get this book. Something different from soooo many others. I've been getting very bored with the same old plots and storylines and this was refreshing.It really was enjoyable and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.
