    Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux knows the Sonnier family of New Iberia - their connections to the CIA, the mob, and to a former Klansman now running for state office. And he knows their past - as dark and murky as a night on the Louisiana bayou. An assassination attempt and the death of a cop draw Robicheaux into the Sonniers' dangerous web of madness, murder and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own. And they've come out of hiding to destroy the tormented investigator - and the people he holds most dear.

    James Lee Burk with Will Patton

    Can't tell on person from another


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story

    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. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    Story

    There is no Jack Torrance or Randolf Flag in this book. Not much of a story and very predictable. She is a champion with a rifle we learn early. Wonder if that will come up in the end. I know S. King is a lefty buy I don't understand the cheep shot begruging Dick Chaney a new hart at the end of the book. Had nothing to do with the weak story. It felt like King wrote this over the weekend to meet a deadline.

    What disappointed you about Last Car to Elysian Fields?

    Where is Will Patton when you need him. Naration sounds like an old man with no teeth.You can't tell one person from another. Too bad, I love Jemes Lee Burke


    What could James Lee Burke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know because I could not stand to listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He sounds like a mouth full of mush.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Never finished the first CD.

    On the first day of May, 100 teenage boys meet for a race known as The Long Walk. If you break the rules, you get three warnings. If you exceed your limit, what happens is absolutely terrifying.

    "The too long walk"
    Overall

    I normaly enjoy Steven King but this was so bad I could not listen to the second half. Maby the ending was good.
