The reader was so good that he made the shortcomings of the story better. Much like King can make almost any story interesting, the reader was top notch and made me *see* the character in my mind.
Devin because he was so relatable in his viewpoint and emotions
Everything. I felt like I was watching him as well as listening to him. He is that good in this reading.
No. I always expect a good story from King (one of my favorite writers) and this was good. This made me think of parts of my own life. Evoked some nostalgia.
The only part of the story that I didn't like was that it felt a little flat at the end. Maybe that's just because of the type of story that it was & there always just has to be an end to it.
This was a fun and fast listen. The story was intriguing and I loved all the carney lingo! The narrator was exceptional too!
Yes, because it is so well written and I loved the characters.
After the night, because it was a very emotional listen.
He is an amazing narrator, I loved his voice it went so well with how I envisioned the character to be.
Devin because he is so kind, noble and honest. He is what a man should be.
I was crying when I finished this book. It touched me deeply.
Short but very enjoyable . Recommended Keep them coming. Enjoy kings books immensely Thank you what's next let me know :-) ok
This is a lighter, softer version of King I really enjoyed. More Hallmark than Hell.
By the end of this book, you'll be in love with all the characters, even the murderer. Some of King's recent books have felt like duty and are...Not great. Joyland is fantastic.
Only a few. The protagonist reminisces about working at a small theme park on his summer break in the 1970's. It is told through the eyes of a sixty year old man. The first few hours drags while he talks about the mundane duties he had. The only spark that there may be a story in there somewhere is when he mentions a young teenage girl that was murdered inside one of the horror houses before he came to work there. It is calm for Stephen King, but it reminded me of my younger years working at a theme park.
A young boy named Mike who is bound to a wheel chair is a great role model.
Michael did a great job with the narration as he relived the stories through an older man's eyes. He made the story believable.
Not really. I was expecting more, but it was an easy listen.
A lot of repetition. Would have liked a little more suspense. The last two hours of the narrative were the best.
I really enjoyed this book , I would highly recommend it to people who want to go with lighter horror of Stephen King. The story was very interesting and the narration was well done.
