Shutter Island - Book Review

Recently, I have started reading a lot of fiction & non-fiction that were converted to popular movies - e.g. The Lincoln LawyerThe Blind Side and  Stardust

Shutter Island
In that tradition, the recent novel i picked up was "Shutter Island". Extremely well written book that really surprises you at the end. One of the problems with reading a story after seeing a movie is that - you always see the characters shown by the director rather than the character created by the author while writing the book. e.g.  I always see Daniel Radcliffe while reading Harry Potter Series.  This book was an exception to that case - which is a testament of the thought-out characterization by the author. (I saw only the early few minutes and not the entire movie)

Though this is not a page-turner, it still keeps you interested enough to mull over and come back to the book. But the surprising climax is the highlight of the book. 

Rating: 3.5/5

My Comment: Good book to read a little bit everyday. But might not be the right book to pick for a flight trip.
