Mystic River

Mystic River was a very good read. I started it last week while on the road and just finished it this morning. The plot was full of twists but as I got close to the end I could see how the final act would play out, for the most part. There were still a few surprises in the end but I could see a lot of it coming very clearly. I am anxious to see the movie now. I knew from the commercials or could piece together who was who as I was reading the book and it was hard not to picture Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon and Tim Robbins as I read it. I am interested to see how they play out the book. A lot of it was in the character’s heads and to see how that plays on screen will be interesting to watch.
