Good story, read excellently well. I am not fond of audio books, except those read by their author, but after hearing this one I am going to give some more a go.
The narrator - very likeable guy, very believable.
A dfiferent style of story from King and I really liked it.
"Up there with Stephen King's best"
A wonderful book more along the lines of "The Green Mile" or "The Body" (AKA "Stand by me") than his horror stories. Highly recommended.
"Different from King's usual fare"
I really enjoyed this book. Michael Kelly's reading style was a bit off-putting at first, but once you got into the flow of it, it really did suit the tone and feel of the story. I would definitely try another book narrated by him to see how it worked.
As for the story it was fun and spooky and evoked feelings that were a little nostalgic. I loved the descriptions of how the theme park was run.
It's been a few months since I've listened to this book. I really need to write reviews straight after. But my overall memories of it are that it had just the right pace and feel and hit all the right notes. I would happily listen to it again
Very good easy listen. Narration excellent, brought the characters alive.
Going to listen to Doctor Sleep now. It won't disappoint
"Best ever Stephen King book so far."
I have read most of Stephen Kings books but Joyland has been the best so far (17 of January 2015) and the narrator Michael Kelly made a good book even better.
"A super story very well told.."
The reading gave the story accent and atmosphere you felt that there was a young man growing.. The young boy was wonderful..
"Perfectly read..scaryish...gripping and unusual"
No as I can't find any others. His performance is superb.
I miss the book now it's finished...
"An unexpected twist"
I love Stephen King and this foray into a new genre does not disappoint - As good at the noir thriller as he is horror
Amongst the top 10
The descriptive aspwct of the first dog dance
Intonation was apt.
Thanks again Stephen.
"He's done it again"
It's a great book, which manages to keep you entertained.
A little bit more action would have been nice, it was a little slow for my liking and not quite like his other books.
He was perfect for the narrator, his voice fitted in well.
I couldn't listen to it in one setting due to it being a little slower than I'd like. I found although it drew me into the book, it didn't keep me wanting to read it.
Different than the usual King books I've read, but enjoyable none the less. A must read for Stephen King fans.
