Joyland by Stephen King!

20130716_165658Joyland was a lot different from King’s usual horror novel.  For one it was a lot shorter and had no chapters. Instead there were cute little hearts to break up the passages which I actually found aided my reading experience.

You may think that a haunted Funhouse has been done to death & would be fairly predictable.  However, King being the master that he is, makes the story his own & keeps the reader guessing until the end.  The story consists of a murder mystery, unique and likeable characters and a ghost thrown in for added suspense.

Although it won’t be added to my list of favourite Stephen King novels, it was an enjoyable read and I am looking forward to his next masterpiece.

QUOTES:

* ‘When it comes to the past, everybody writes fiction.’

* ‘Love leaves scars.’

* ‘You think Okay, I get it, I’m prepared for the worst, but you hold out that small hope, see, and that’s what fs you up. That’s what kills you.’
