Shutter Island is the story of a detective who has lost his wife.

Once on the island, he meets the woman in a cave and after talking with her begins to question everything.

Best part of story, including ending:
I loved this story because there were times when it was hard to tell what was real and what the character was imagining.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene is probably when the detective blows up a car. He is imagining his dead children standing beside it, but has to blow it up anyway in order to escape.
Opinion about the main character:
I loved all the levels of the character. He really works through what is real/what's not and I thought it was very intriguing.
