    Joyland

    The last Stephen King book I read was his superb short story collection Four Past Midnight several years ago. When I read the reviews of Joyland last year I was immediately reminded of one of my favorite novels from childhood, Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes: summertime, carnival, mystery, and coming of age, and knew I had to read it. I finally checked Joyland out a few days ago and was not disappointed. Excellent first person narration, vivid descriptions of place, time, and feeling. A great story that will keep you turning the pages. Don't let the Hard Case Crime imprint deter you from reading Joyland if that's not typically your thing.
