    I started it today and got well over 100 pages quickly, didn't want to finish it just yet so I put it down but I don't think it's as bad as most make it out to be. ( Of course I'm only halfway in! ) I'm enjoying the Duma Key, beach/carnival vibe going on. Kind of wish I had waited until our carnival came into town this year, that would have been cool!

    I loved Joyland. I only wish it had been longer. Otherwise, no complaints.

    Finished it today and I loved it, especially the ending. It was quite moving I must say! I'm a big fan of anything paranormal so I was thrilled that was included in there a little bit. It did seem a bit short and rushed, would have really worked well into a longer novel type, but with just the basic story he was trying to tell it was done nicely.

    If you're not into crime stories at all, still read it, it's not so much a hard crime novel like most think.. The ending makes it worth the time!

    booklover72 very strange person

    weolme sean. I bought this book on the first day of release, because a. it was stephen king and b. I loved the cover. read it in 2 days. and didn't know what to do (except read another stephen king) I loved it. i forgot to make dinner and er clean myhouse, i was so absorbed. Sometimes, i read 6 Sk books and then move to another author, but i always come back to stephen king.

    A few years back I had a copy of Under the Dome (which I believe weighs in over 1,000 pages) with me on the lunch table at work.

    One of my friends asked me how long it would take me to read it and I said, "Oh . . . I'm not reading it. I just carry it around for exercise.

    ; )
  9. love Joyland.

    Great Hard Case Crime cover.
    Great 'coming of age' tale.
    Great 'Hitchcock' style finale.

    What more can I say!

    Oh! I fell in love with both Erin and Annie...
