  1. Once upon a time, three boys were fighting in the street when two men claiming to be plainclothes cops show up One kid gets in the car, the others stay put, and their lives will never be the same Decades later, Dave Boyle, the kid who got into the car, is accused of killing the daughter of Jimmy Marcus, one of the other boys, and the third boy has grown up to be Sean Devine, the cop in charge of the case Did Boyle do it And if he didn t, can Sean find the real killer Yeah, 2013 was supposed to b [...]


  2. Every adult human being has the chance to choose a personally favored path of life considering it isn t predeterminated by illnesses, accidents etc , but the general direction this path heads towards will usually already be marked during childhood This might be the idea which provoked Dennis Lehane to write about the abysms of humanity and the fateful consequences one single deed might release to weigh heavily upon your conscience for the rest of your life even if it is something as simple as no [...]


  3. Just before picking this book up my first Lehane it won t be my last I came across a quote by him illuminating the working class, blue collar nature of noir In Greek tragedy, they fall from great heights In noir, they fall from the curb I love this quote It slices right to the heart of who we are reading about, and even why we are reading about them In Mystic River, Lehane is shooting from both barrels he intuitively knows who he is writing about and where the gritty, depressed, working class ne [...]


  4. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum We bury our sins here We wash them clean Mystic River was another selection of mine for the already completed Read to Reel challenge at my local library Although I ve owned this book for years, for whatever reason it remained on the hysterectomy shelves untouched until the librarian forced my hand Amazingly, I have also been able to avoid ever seeing the movie that was released 10 years ago due to my dislike for Clint Eastwood s directing .Ahhhhh save it, [...]


  5. Writing this review as I sit here watching Sean Penn discover the brutal death of his daughter, kicking myself once again because this is another book I should of read a long time ago Just glad in a way that I also hadn t seen the film and blown a powerfully compelling ending that managed to stay just out of my grasp until two pages before the big reveal Mystic River is a riveting character driven crime thriller about three boys, one abducted and forever scarred with what he endured, all grown u [...]


  6. Three young boys Three young lives A car with two scoundrels in the road Silence.Many years later, a murder of someone s daughter Life had a story to tell Friendship broke out in different voices I m not going to say much about this book An excellent, gritty, somber, literary, psycho thriller The murder mystery denied me sleep I wanted to cry for all of them Still do To Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus, and Dave Boyle I can never forget, or give up on you Friendship does not work that way Sad that the [...]


  7. Jimmy knelt down by the river and plunged his hands in it, oily and polluted We bury our sins here We wash them clean I have now within a month listened to what I have heard from friends are the three best novels from Dennis Lehane, Since We Fell, Shutter Island, and Mystic River At this point, I have seen two film adaptations of his books that I liked very much, Mystic River and Gone, Baby, Gone I haven t read any of his other books yet , but this one, based on a quick look at the range of them [...]


  8. I read this masterpiece a while ago before I joined and I ve been contemplating posting a review because it s on the top of my favorites list But for a while I wasn t sure I could say anything that could do justice to this remarkable book Not only is it Dennis Lehane s greatest book and that s saying a lot , this modern tragedy sets the standard for all contemporary crime dramas and thrillers It s one of the only books that I would consider near perfect and I would recommend it to anyone It s th [...]


  9. Extremely well written This author can do for character development in one or two pages than others try in 30 There was not one moment of let down or disbelief This is a very good, gritty, tough and tragic mystery Has to be on a top 10 of all time list somewhere.


  10. I m just saying there are threads, okay Threads in our lives You pull one, and everything else gets affected Say it rained in Dallas and so Kennedy didn t ride in a convertible Stalin stayed in the seminary Say you and me, Sean, say we got in that car with Dave Boyle A horrible murder is commited in a blue collar neighborhood of Boston Dennis Lehane goes far deeper than your regular crime writer into the motives and the conditions that led to the crime He concentrates on the personalities of the [...]


  11. You didn t belong Don t you get it That s all a neighborhood is a place where people who belong together live All others need not fuckin apply.Clocking in five of his books over the past few weeks, I ve begun to feel like I m living in a sort of Dennis Lehane land an ineluctably dark place that is made all the so by its striking resemblance to our own While Sophocles and Aeschylus rarely used blue collar neighborhoods of Boston as the backdrop of their works, in Mystic River Lehane has created [...]


  12. If you ve seen Martin Scorsese s THE DEPARTED, then you are familiar with the setting of this book A poor, predominately white neighborhood in Boston where male children grow up to be either criminals or cops Violence is a part of life, and the vicious cycles of abuse and crime are never ending.Jimmy, Sean, and Dave grew up together When they are 11 years old, a cop car pulls up and busts them for fighting in the street Sean and Jimmy, the tougher ones, lie and avoid getting in the car Dave, the [...]


  13. Just finished watching the movie and while it was remarkable , I felt the book was better.Passenger on the USS Dave for life.


  14. Honestly, I found this sort of hard to read It s one of those books that is is so saturated with descriptions of absolutely everything that it s hard for me to take it all in I can t picture images in my head and I guess that s why I usually prefer books that follow a stream of consciousness It wasn t easy for me to read the descriptions but the book was also hard to read because Lehane writes really long sentences They seemed to go on and on forever and he lost me than a few times I also thoug [...]


  15. After reading Mystic River, I think Dennis Lehane might ve become my new favorite mystery writer since Harlan Coben and David Baldacci A very powerful tale of murder, friendship, murder, suspense, and betrayal, everything you want from a Mystery, and it leaves you wanting One afternoon in the streets of Boston, 3 longtime friends, Jimmy Marcus, Sean Devine, and Dave Boyle are roughhousing, when a mysterious car with 2 men pulls up, one of the men posing as a cop gets out and starts berating the [...]


  16. Steeped as it is in such uplifting topics as childhood sex abuse repressed pedophilic desire betrayal broken friendships broken people doomed love the pain of loss brutal, senseless murder the stifling nature of the stoic, emotionally contained masculine ideal and tragically misguided attempts at retribution and revenge, Mystic River is an enjoyable and deeply satisfying read Dennis Lehane paints a vivid, beautifully romantic yet depressing portrait of various lives in an economically depressed [...]


  17. Happiness comes in moments, then it s gone until the next time Could be years But sadness settles it Another Lehane book under my belt and I enjoyed it immensely, the book was an elevated crime fiction book in which the character study and the amazing writing balanced well with the plot Unlike Shutter Island which I highly love and probably one of his best works this one carried depth felt than just your typical solving a crime story Life isn t happily ever after It s work The person you love [...]


  18. A powerhouse I can t very well say I have become a fan of Dennis Lehane because, after all, this is the first of his work that I have read, but I will certainly be reading of his work I already have purchased Shutter Island and if it is anything like Mystic River, then yeah, count me in as a huge Lehane fan This book was about as close to perfect as you can get The story drew me in I felt like I was there, mingling with the locals, I could feel the atmosphere of the city and I could feel the em [...]



  19. 4.5 stars Edit actually, sod it, I m giving it 5 stars This is my first book by Lehane and I m very impressed Once again, I got into it thinking it d be a fast, fun romp, with the odd clever twist here and there, but nothing unpredictable I even thought I knew the ending before the twist was revealed, and I thought this would bore me I was wrong on two counts The ending surprised me I did NOT see that coming and even when I thought I knew the ending, the road towards the revelation was very intr [...]


  20. Devastating While reading this book I entered into a world of which I know nothing about Place is very important in Mystic River and having grown up on the West Coast I was at a disadvantage But the themes Universal.I had in mind the movie Good Will Hunting Those characters had it rough South Boston, working class, hard lives That moment where Robin Williams explains Will Hunting to Professor Lambeau And why does he hang out with those retarded gorillas, as you called them Because any one of the [...]



  21. I m not a fan of Sean Penn, so I never even wanted to see this movie, and didn t even know that there was a book until after I d read Lehane s other book Shutter Island, which I really enjoyed So when I saw that my library had this on audio, I borrowed it, and have just now got around to listening to it I think that this was a pretty good story, but it wasn t really as gut wrenching or as horrifying as I d expected it to be, knowing that it was about the murder of the daughter of one of the main [...]


  22. So intense One of the best mystery thriller books I have ever read Not just a detective novel but also psychological The characters are portrayed superbly 5 stars.


  23. Whoo, Mystic River is good, so good I stayed in the bath extra long to finish the last 50 pages, I didn t care how cold the water grew, I turned on the water as hot as it could go, which wasn t very hot because I d run all the hot water out, with my toe, and read this fucker to the last word Mystic River was a blast, like a really fucking good, layered detective movie, except the movie version didn t come close to catching the book s nuances.Lehane s novel centers on the relationships between th [...]


  24. Twenty five years after Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus and Dave Boyle had their boyhood friendship torn apart by an abduction of one of the boys, in the street where they were playing, a murder has brought them all together again Sean is now a homicide detective, married to Lauren, but separated, with a daughter he hadn t seen yet.d when Jimmy s nineteen year old daughter Katie, is murdered in the early hours of a Sunday morning, Sean is assigned to the case He is just back to work from a weeks suspe [...]


  25. The only annotation I took during Mystic River is attached to this quote Life wasn t a fucking movie, man, it was fucking life I wrote, quite simply, this author sucks at profundity and sentiment Honestly I think that quotation and my brief comment could suffice for a whole review What do you need to know about this book after reading that clich d life is a movie line But I will try to write This is a mediocre mystery novel in every sense of the word mediocre The writing is passable, just good [...]


  26. Ainda n o li muitos thrillers psicol gicos, mas com a leitura deste Mystic River e que leitura bastante perturbadora, levando me a pousar o livro algumas vezes , algo que devo rectificar Muito antes do final, torna se f cil inferir o que se passou, o autor permite que assim seja, porque sabe que o leitor est completamente investido nos personagens e na maneira como eles v o lidar com os factos que lhes s o apresentados Dennis Lehane um escritor a seguir


  27. Three young friends, all destined to have completely different lives as they age, but forever linked The murder of one of their children sets off a chain of events that brings the former childhood friends back together in ways none of them wanted The eventual identity of the murderer comes as a complete surprise in this extremely well written, suspenseful mystery loaded with atmosphere and unforgettable characters A masterpiece.


  28. Its movie won t tell you of the book s humor but this standalone was as witty and charming as his well known series
