Joyland
Joyland | Stephen King
A STUNNING NEW NOVEL FROM ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING AUTHORS OF ALL TIME! The #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. "I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, were going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."Stephen King

A lighter read from King. There's mystery, suspense with some sprinkles of supernatural. Enjoyed the storytelling and characters, just not the plot.

Rating: 3.5 ⭐

My first Stephen King novel and I‘m sorry to say I wasn‘t crazy about it. Lacked the suspense and horror I was expecting from King. Maybe this isn‘t a typical Stephen King novel and not great for first timers! But besides that, it was entertaining enough though, and I adored the sweet relationship between the narrator and Mike. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Avanders Definitely not typical king 😉 Maybe try The Shining? 5mo
hgrimes @AlaMich thanks! 5mo
hgrimes @Avanders Thanks! I recently found out my husband has never seen The Shining...😧 Going to fix that asap, as soon as we hit Halloween time! (edited) 5mo

Yep, reading my first Stephen King novel. Canobie Lake, an old school amusement park my husband and I go to in the summers, was the inspiration for this novel, which peaked my interest. So far I‘m a quarter of the way through and still waiting for something to happen. The suspense is killing me!

Everyone knows SK can write great horror. But he is also amazing at creating a sense of nostalgia in some of his books and this is a great example. There is a little mystery here, a hint of a ghost story, but mostly you're taken back to an old school amusement park in the 1970s and a bittersweet coming of age story.

The retro-pulp cover art on this paperback is fab but maybe a little misleading. While it was fun to be whisked away into the world of a 1970‘s coastal carnival and the light mystery/crime/horror elements, the central story is of a young man coming of age and the kinds of love and loss people really face.🤴❤️

The wonderful @AmyG sent me this book about a year ago and I just got around to reading it.
I loved this book. A coming of age story spent at an amusement park. I wouldn‘t consider it horror but there was a supernatural mystery and some wonderful, touching moments. A cast of unique characters made this a great read. Highly recommend.

ephemeralwaltz Enjoyed this one! I need to get to The Stand as well! 1y
cleoh @KathyWheeler @ephemeralwaltz I wasn‘t too sure how I‘d feel about this one when I started it (total impulse buy) but I‘m pleasantly surprised! 1y
cleoh @CouronneDhiver I always forget that this is by SK! Refuses to stick in my mind for some reason 😂 1y
cleoh @ErinSueG 😱 that sounds excellent. I think I‘ll have to track down a copy sooner rather than later! 1y
KathyWheeler I just realized I never answered the question about the favorite SK book. I love The Stand, Doctor Sleep, 12/22/63 , and the Dark Tower series. 1y
cleoh @KathyWheeler ooh 12/22/63 has been on my TBR for such a long time! Thoughts on the mini series adaptation?? 1y
KathyWheeler @cleoh They changed some things and made one character more important than he was in the book, but I think it was necessary because for those events in the book there‘s a lot of internal narration. I liked the miniseries a lot. 1y

“All I can say is what you already know: some days are treasure. Not many, but I think I‘m almost every life there are a few. That was one of mine, and when I‘m blue—when life comes down on me and everything looks tawdry and cheap, the way Joyland Avenue did on a rainy day—I go back to it, if only to remind myself that life isn‘t always a butcher‘s game. Sometimes the prizes are real. Sometimes they‘re precious.”

This is a smaller book by King. Well worth the read. I think this book will surprise readers who have not liked King in the past or who do not like horror.

Day 29: Chills and Thrills—One might argue that some of my reading could be considered borderline thriller/action-adventure. Mostly, though, I prefer straight-up mystery; and, I definitely steer away from horror. I was highly skeptical when someone headed me toward Stephen King's Joyland. I'm so glad they did! It won an elusive 4-star review from me! #RiotGrams #StingyWithStars #ChillAndThrills #NoGoreTolerance

P is for Pillsbury, as in Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. Being raised by a single mom had a big impact on King, and the way he writes relationships between young men and their mothers in his novels, I can only assume comes from a personal place. For example, the single mother with her two kids in Joyland always made me think of King's mother raising 2 boys during a time when society was much less accepting of single moms.
#KingAtoZ @GarthRanzz

AmyG Very good. 2y
GarthRanzz I love this one because I can personally relate to it. I was raised with my little brother by a single, working mom. Not quite in the same time period but it still was a different way of life than most. Another reason for my affinity with King. 2y
