I've read Shutter Island, and I REALLY liked it...HOWEVER I haven't seen the movie, and from what I've heard the endings are completely different...so you can't get away with watching the movie on this one!

I didn't manage to vote in the run-off, but I haven't read either book or seen either movie, so I'm sure I shall be as pleased/appalled/righteously indignant as if I had voted.

Well, not entirely, except the movie changes the entire FEEL of the ending from what I've understood.

Either way, this is a great book.

I'm still number one one the wait list! I would have though I'd get it faster than this, since the library has two copies. But it can't be long now...

I'm a third through, and it is good. Unfortunately, as I feared, my reading of it is coloured by having seen the film and knowing the denoument.

Well, don't tell me. I'm enjoying the hell out of it. And there's a lot of hell in that book to be enjoyed out of.

I finally got the book from the library and I have returned it early to give someone else a chance to read it. (FLP)
The book is a relatively quick read (less than 250 pages, not much text per page) and as far as I remember the movie it is very true to the book. I can't say I completely remembered the movie when I started the book, but I all came back to me as I kept reading. I can't think of anything in the book that I don't recogninze from the movie.
The movie was great and really "spooky", as is the book. A very interesting plot, indeed!

Well I've finished it now, and despite knowing the story already, I did think it was an excellent read. Raring to go once the discussion thread is up .

Having read the book, I wonder if I should now see the movie, or would that get my facts jumbled up in the discussion?

I haven't seen the movie for a while, but there were some differences that could confuse. You could make your review notes now, then you could watch it?
