Beschreibung bei Amazon Dennis Lehane is an American author who was born on August 4th, and raised in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Dennis was the youngest of five siblings in his family and graduated from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. Dennis has seen many of his novels turned into movie adaptations such as Mystic River, Gone, baby, gone and Shutter Island.

Dennis was married to an advocate for the elderly for the city of Boston named Sheila Lawn and is now married to Dr. Angela Bernardo with whom he shares a daughter. Dennis also had a beagle named Tessa which went missing in the fall of and Dennis has not stopped continuing his search for her ever since. Dennis Lehane wrote many popular books, out of which a number of books were turned into movie adaptations. The movie was such a success that it won 2 academy awards while garnering another 4 academy award nominations.

Published in by the publishers, Harper Collins, Shutter Island was another best-selling novel by Dennis Lehane which was turned into a movie adaptation.

The plot of Shutter Island is one of brilliance and will bring constant Goosebumps to any reader who indulges in this part pulp and part gothic fiction. An element of sheer psychological illusions, the novel will leave all of its readers in such confusing delusions that it might haunt them forever. Teddy and his new assistant, Chuck, travel to Shutter Island, an asylum for the criminally insane, to investigate the escape of a murderess, namely Rachel Solando.

This investigation is being carried out by Teddy with his own personal agenda in place as well for the murder of his wife two years prior to this investigation by an Andrew Laeddis who is also present at the asylum. The investigation turns sour after a hurricane hits the island, leaving both teddy and Chuck trapped at the island for the day. During this time, an inmate informs Andrew that his new partner cannot be trusted while the two Marshalls are investigating Ward C which Teddy accuses of being an experimental lab as he finds numerous indicators pointing towards the ward being used to test psychotropic drugs.

The two marshalls are separated when they return and teddy wounds up with a psychiatrist who reveals herself to be Rachel Solando and insists that she has been hiding in sea caves while deducing that Teddy, himself is a patient and whatever he eats, drinks or smokes is laced with psychotropic drugs. Teddy refuses to believe such accusations and worries that his partner might be in trouble and must have been experimented upon so he rushes to find Chuck.

Teddy ends up at the lighthouse where he sees the administrator of the asylum sitting at the desk. A few details are revealed where teddy is told that he is the actual Andrew Laeddis and has been a patient at the asylum for the past 2 years for the murder of his wife, Dolores Chanal.

Both Rachel Solando and Edward Daniels are revealed to be anagrams of the names Dolores Chanal and Andrew Laeddis created in the mind of Teddy as he is revealed to be living in a dystopian fantasy. Teddy tries to disapprove with extreme measures but slowly realizes the truth. This leaves characters confused as to whether Teddy really wanted to die, at least consciously, knowing that his three children were dead because of his wife who he had then killed or because he had not regresses completely at all in the first place.

The novel was turned into a movie adaptation by director Martin Scorsese while the character of teddy was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Boeken van Dennis Lehane

The plotting is good, after a bit of a slow start, and moves along well, dragging us happily with it as usual. This was much better than I had feared. I felt the pain and loss, as I always do when bright young people are hurt or lose their way. Their love and team spirit are the two elements that keep me coming back to Lehane, again and again.
