Joyland

Joyland - Stephen King This isn't a Stephen King book about which I'd heard very much. Not sure why because it was excellent. Tore through it in a couple of days. It's not standard King horror, beyond a touch of supernatural. Don't be fooled or put off by the pulpy cover. It's a wonderful story--a murder mystery combined with a coming of age tale, populated with all the fully fleshed characters that King always delivers and steeped in the world of the old-time carnie. And with lots of tugs on the heart strings. Highly recommended.
