10/50 - Mystic River

Since I had to drive to Baltimore and back on the same day last week, I decided to listen to an audiobook to keep me awake.
I have watched the movie Mystic River but since I ALWAYS enjoy the book more, I figured it'd be a good option for a 7 hour car ride. Although the movie is a fantastic portrayal of the book, it does not compare to the character development and descriptions in the novel. The narration by Scott Brick sucked me in & I ended up listening to the book even when I wasn't driving. I will be adding a couple more Dennis Lehane novels to my Nook. If you haven't read any of his books yet, I 100% recommend Mystic River OR Shutter Island - I barely put it down last summer!
