Romananalyse: Shutter Island - analyse
En analyse av boken "Shutter Island" av Dennis Lehane. Læreren markerte ingen skrivefeil.
I've read Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. It was published in 2003 and made it to the screens in 2010. The book is a combination of several genres. The most dominating one is Thriller, but horror is quite close.
The book is set in 1954 and is about Teddy Daniels, a US Marshall who is sent to Shutter Island with his new partner Chuck Aule to uncover the whereabouts of a missing patient. Shutter Island is an island that holds the mysterious Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane.
We discover that Teddy is also secretly looking for a patient called Andrew Laeddis; the man who killed his wife.
During the search they uncover some dodgy secrets about the real of this place, and this leaves Teddy questioning everything - even his partners intentions
They get split up and when Teddy ask for Chuck, the staff claims they never saw him- that Teddy has been alone ever since he came.
Teddy flees from the hospital and makes his way to the lighthouse, which is where all the dodgy stuff is supposed to happen. Here he is met by Crawley, the chief doctor, who acts as if he is trying to talk some sense into him. He tries to convince Teddy that his(Teddys) real name is Andrew. Andrew Laeddis, that he killed his wife and three children and that he has been a patient of Ashecliffe hospital for two years. The book ends with one of Teddys dreams, in which he is Laeddis and kills his children and his wife... Kjøp tilgang for å lese mer
