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, we’re 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

I got it because my friend works at Titan publishing and got me a book. It is downright awesome and spooky.. And trust me... It's not a joy land.
Short but sweet
I wanted more. Bah, humbug but you've spoiled us, Mr. King. I know it's tougher to write a great short story or novella like this than a Novel with a big "N."
But this was such a sweet and edgy story...just wanted more. Thanks for this bon-Bon, though...
Spooky & Bittersweet
Mr King comes through again with a mildly spooky tale of a cold case solved and justice (such as it is ) served. One thing I have always enjoyed about Mr King’s work is his ability to “put you there” without overusing and over-describing the scence. In this book, he really shines and is able to evoke the appropriate feeling while remaining concise and on the point.
Mega Kudos and I highly recommend this book.
