Shutter Island-The Novel

This is the first Dennis Lehane book that I have read. I have seen two movies based on his novels "Mystic River" and "Gone Baby Gone" and liked them both to a certain extent.
The curiosity factor was heightened when I learned that Martin Scorcese has adapted this novel into a movie starring Leonardo di Caprio and Ben Kingsley.

The novel starts with two U.S. Marshalls Teddy and Chuck arriving on a secluded island which serves as an institution for violent prisoners with psychological problems. They have come to Shutter Island to investigate the disappearance of a woman patient Rosalin Solando.

The novel starts like a mystery, but slowly we realize that things are not right!

I am not revealing the twist:)

Is Rosalin found?

What exactly is taking place in the institution?

What is the secret?

Read the novel to find answers.

I am waiting for the movie to release!

I saw the movie, really liked it and at the same time didn't like it... it was weird. I liked Leonardo, but then towards the end I couldn't help feeling sad for him or admiring him.
