Dennis Lehane, "Shutter Island" Book Review

I read this book under slightly odd circumstances.  I should say that I NEVER guess "the truth."  I'm always the one who's surprised when the ghost in the old warehouse turns out to be Old Man Harrington in a rubber mask.  Every time I think, "Well I didn't see THAT coming!"  

There have been two exceptions to this woeful lack of perception on my part.  The first time I watched "The Sixth Sense," I guessed that Bruce Willis was a ghost about three scenes in.  I have no idea where I got that from.  I thought it was so obvious that I was surprised to learn that everyone else was surprised at the end.
