    That felt like I was half in Duma Key throughout the Joyland story?? Also it resonated with Bag of Bones as well?
    Perhaps it was just the related aspects. - the beach/beach walks.... the big old house down the beach, and the mother with the child......or maybe I've read too many SK books in a row and they're merging in my brain hah :confused:

    Nope, I definitely felt the Duma Key vibe in that story. I kept waiting for the main character to come across Wireman on the beach somewhere...and that would have been awesome:)

    Never any such thing as too many of his books in a row.. :). There was definitely a beach vibe going on. Loved this book.

    ...considering his fate, it sure as hell WOULD have been awesome:snowman:....and I think each King story, blends thematic details that resonate with each Constant Reader in their own individual way...that, or I'm just full of Yak poop....
