    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.

    Where does Joyland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've been a Stephen King fan for years and haven't been that thrilled with a lot of his past books. Jpyland is right up there in my favorites


    What did you like best about this story?

    .The way you see Dev grow up, his relationship with Mike


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to him before, but I certainly would again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Parts made me laugh and cry. When Mike is talking about his illness I cried


    Any additional comments?

    This reminds me of older Stephen King. I LOVED it!!!!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better plit, more believable characters and a lot less of the explict sexual stuff.


    What could Clive Barker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Ended it sooner and once again tune down the orgt, references to everyone's bodyily parts.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning of the book. I really thought he had something there. Talking about whay actos and actresses behave


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I would have to say revolsion


    Any additional comments?

    I could even get to the very end of the book. I just couldn't deal with the stupidy of the characters.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or David Aaron Baker?

    I'm debating about it.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a fan a long time ago, but with descriptions that sometimes seemed to be pages long, I quit reading any of his work. I listened to the first Odd Thomas and could deal with the at times lengthy descriptions, but the dialogue is annoying. I'm not asking to write in a way that appears I never finished primary school, but not in a pompous style.
