    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.

    Cozy Reader says: "The sweest and creepiest coming of age story!"
    "Wonderful Storytelling!"

    What made the experience of listening to Joyland the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is fantastic. The storyline is interesting and enjoyable. In my opinion Stephen King is one of the absolute best at weaving a story and in creating in depth character development.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Kelly – was your favorite?

    He did a great job on all of them.


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

    I admit to crying at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    NOT you're typical Stephen King horror story. This is a coming of age story with a sideline murder mystery and a tiny bit of paranormal element tied in. I really enjoyed the story and love a good mystery. One of my favorites by King to date.
