Booking Through Thursday -- Twisty Endings
Do you have a favorite book that has a twist at the end? That is the question today from Booking Through Thursday.
One of my favorites is Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. The twist is unbelievable. Posted the hardcover image because it shows the mood and character of the book! I believe Lehane writes literary fiction with a mystery/thriller incorporated in the story. Great characterization, good action, excellent themes (Mystic River -- family theme, for sure!) Reading groups should try one of Lehane's books -- you will be quite surprised the number of discussion ideas. I met Dennis Lehane 4 years ago at a library show. He is funny, dry, intelligent, and very Boston!
On February 19, Shutter Island, the movie, will been released. We will see if the movie does this incredible book justice.
The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian is another favorite. Check it out -- really great conversation starters for book clubs.
