Joyland

A Novel

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.

Rezension
Joyland is one of Stephen King's best novels. - Horror Movie Reviews"This book is one of those thrills we come across every so often when least expected!" - Hellnotes" Joyland is one of Stephen King's best novels" - Horror Movie Reviews"King saved the big scares for Dr. Sleep, but Joyland is ultimately superior." - Complex's Best Books of 2013"Set in a dying amusement park in the south, Joyland features a ghost and a serial killer, but the real heart of the novel is a coming of age story, one that took me vividly back to my own youth, working the rides at Uncle Milty's in Bayonne." - George R.R Martin" Joyland is full of nostalgia and some really sweet moments that had me tearing up. It's easy to forget that anything else is going on, you're so wrapped up in the lives of these characters.
4.5 out of 5 Stars (read it, read it now)" - Only The Best SciFi"This one's a must for King fans and may also attract YA readers."– Library Journal "...period murder mystery with a heart...King brings his usual finesse to this tale's mystery elements"– Publishers Weekly "...the book...features some of King's most graceful writing...ruminative, amused, digressive, marvelously unaffected, and finally, devastatingly sad."– Entertainment Weekly "An amusement park and murder figure into a coming-of-age tale in this miniature thriller with a hint of the supernatural."– Los Angeles Times "Undeniable...charm [and] aching nostalgia...[JOYLAND] reads like a heartfelt memoir and might be King's gentlest book, a canny channeling of the inner peace one can find within outer tumult."– Booklist "Wrapped in a gloriously pulpy cover, Joyland is a coming-of-age story set in 1973 at a North Carolina amusement park -- creepy! -- that's haunted by a murderer."– Time Magazine "Stephen King's carny-saturated Joyland evokes the ghosts of summers past -- literally."– New York Magazine" Joyland , by Stephen King (Hard Case Crime, June). An old-school, pulpy paperback ghost story set in a North Carolina amusement park."– Departures Magazine"King's latest thriller, a PG-13 pulp paperback crime novel takes place at a remote carny park where college kid Devin is desperate to see the ghost of a girl whose murderer might still be
lurking around the hot dog stands."– Cosmopolitan Magazine " Joyland is a joy. A gem whatever its genre."– Tor.com
"This is a wonderful return to old school King."– We Love This Book
" Joyland is a fantastic story. This is a compelling and yet oddly gentle tale of a young man experiencing the ache of heartbreak and the curve-balls life can throw at you."– Geek Native "From horror authority Stephen King comes some hard-boiled action, with all the elements of a good crime novel - including the early '70s, southern secrets, carnivals, and a meddling college kid."– The Daily Muse "If you're a King fan you may want to set this on your wishlist "– Bookmuch "This Joyland is not innocent, of course. Its retro thrills include an enticingly steamy cover, Hard Case Crime's sensually tactile paperback format, and a cover line that asks, "Who Dares Enter the Funhouse of Fear?""– New York Times "It's good to have a book like this now – simple, sweet, and not a little scary – to remind us that among the prequels and sequels, the epics and the TV miniseries, Stephen King can still spin one hell of a little yarn.""As usual, King slips in and out of genre effortlessly, but it's gratifying that at the core of Joyland exists a story worthy of being called a Hard Case Crime.""Misdirection and red herrings abound, delightfully, and the weather-ravaged denouement could play out as the conclusion to a Donald Westlake or Lawrence Block novel."– FEARnet "Red meat for any Stephen King fan."– TalkStephenKing.com "This is a Stephen King novel that you can start on your vacation and actually fin
