Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joyland (Hard Case Crime) (Hard Case Crime Novels) (Paperback)
I've been a constant reader of Stephen King's works for over 20 years and there's not many books of his I haven't read, and I've got to say that Joyland is honestly one of the best he has ever written.

Although this is in the Hard Case Crime series (along with his, also great, Colorado Kid) this isn't much of a crime story (although there is a murder that the characters look into) it is a coming of age novel that touched my heart and made me smile on more times then I can remember when reading it. It's in the same vain as the likes of The Body (Stand By Me), The Green Mile, Hearts in Atlantis and The Shawshank Redemption (in other words, his best stories) and just really tells the story of one summer for our protagonist, Dev, and the sometimes strange and wonderful events that happened during his time working at Joyland.

I won't give away any of the plot - it is best if you start this knowing as little as possible, as I did - but I guarantee you this will be one of your favourite King stories by the time you've finished it.

Buy this book, enjoy this book and afterwards I think it'll be one of your favourites too. Thank you Mr King.
