  Idyllic memories. A perfect childhood. A secret buried for thirty years. None of us could remember why we drifted apart – we were always so close at school but then… you know. That was thirty years ago, and I hadn’t thought of my school friends in all that time – it was like I’d […]

To me, there is nothing scarier than a fictional serial killer. Yes, real serial killers are terrifying but most people are very unlikely to ever come across one and know this. Fictional serial killers, however, are everywhere: there are more book, film and TV show serial killers than there will ever be real ones (thank […]

Brewing Up Books

Before I get started, I have to admit that I broke one of my cardinal rules with Shutter Island: I watched the movie adaptation prior to reading the book. In the moment, it sounded like a great idea. In hindsight, I wish that I had waited to watch the film. Due to my impatience, I was already privy to a few of the twists and turns and the jaw-dropping conclusion before I read the opening sentence of the novel. While I hadn’t seen the movie in a few years and the details had grown a bit fuzzy, I was worried that the book would never live up to its screen adaptation or my considerably heightened expectations. I wasn’t prepared to have one of my favorite thriller movies tainted by a less than pleasant reading experience when I finally decided to pick up its source material. Hence my surprise and utter shock when I was completely blown away by Lehane’s masterfully crafted tale.
