Book Reviews: Joyland by Stephen King

joyland
So it is pretty much a given that I will read every Stephen King book put in front of me (except 11/22/63 which has been on my shelf almost 2 years and I haven’t yet cracked the spine, maybe some day). So when I was seeking out a new audiobook to entertain me on my long drive days I stumbled upon this one and it didn’t take long for me to decide that it was for me.

Joyland is the tale of Devin Jones who takes a summer job at an amusement park and it ends up changing his life. He makes new friends, finds a hidden talent in himself and also a murder mystery to solve and maybe even a ghost! It is not great literature but it was entertaining enough to me. Not a book I would go out of my way to recommend to someone but if they asked me about it I would say, pretty much what I just said above.

Sorry for the short review, but I have a few to write here and I gotta keep moving through them.
