Gripping dark thriller.
The complex characters, particularly Teddy. Haunted by myriad ghosts and has a thinly-veiled brutal nature.
The Magus by John Fowles. As with The Magus, in Shutter Island, reality is not as it appears.
When Teddy sets fire to Dr Collies car. Disturbingly, I found this scene quite satisfying!
Definitely. I found Dolores interaction with the children shocking and macabre.
A thought-provoking novel.
