“Who is the number 67?”

“Shutter Island”[1], by Dennis Lehane, edited in Italy with the ambiguous name of “The island of fear”, ambiguous because with this title, I would have expected a classic horror. Instead, it is a captivating psychological thriller, 345 pages of novel, set on Shutter Island as revelead by the title, a mysterious island reachable just by a ferryboat that doesn’t even have precise schedules. A former prison, now home to a criminal psychiatric sanatorium.

Actually, thinking about it, the island is quite frightening!

Let me play it safe: I’m not objective when I have to talk about LOST, for me it should be seen and reviewed and revised again in Winter, Spring, Fall and Summer !
It is, despite the millions of productions seen in the elapsed time, still my favourite TV series (even with the worst final ever, almost as bad as “Batman vs. Superman”).

Flashback, flashforward, mysteries, brilliant characters!
