This story lacks the main thing a story needs, a reason to read, being a fan of Robert Jordan's wheel of time series the lack of an ending in itself wouldn't bother me. The problem is I was never given a reason to care about anything that happened in this book, its not a deep look into the nature of mystery its at best a side conversation to help establish a locale or character. A three hour long backstory more or less, there are very few books i hate, this has become one of them. Please don't waste the three hours much less the credit.

Many people complain about this books ending, personally I liked it, it was more of how real life investigations go. The actual story is really short, but King still excels at it. The story itself isnt really creative but is still interesting. DeMunn did a decent job, not a five star performance but still ok. I havent had a chance to experience Kings other Hard Case works so hopefully Joyland is better.
It's a nice little story, but it doesn't really classify as "Hard Case Crime". It was slow and there's no closure.

It was a pleasant story. I think I expected more from the story, but it was not bad.
No, not really.
He was okay.
I like the way this one was put together. I could picture myself sitting on a porch listening to these two guys weaving their tale. Very well written... typical Stephen King imagery... VERY well performed.
A decent listen from my all time favorite writer. Ending was not what I expected which made me question why I listened to the whole book. Truly, on of those that the joy was the journey not the end
