Joyland is a whodunit noir crime novel and a haunting ghost story set in the world of an amusement park. It tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a „carny” in small-town North Carolina and has to confront the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the way both will change his life forever. It is also a wonderful coming-of-age novel about friendship, loss, and your first heartbreak. Who dares enter the funhouse of fear?
„I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts” says Stephen King, who has combined these elements into a wonderful new story.
„A beautiful book, warm and honest, about a boy becoming a man, and his tempered transformation really does pack a punch… In short, Joyland is a joy.” (Niall Alexander, Tor)
„An engrossing and ultimately uplifting tale” (Rhian Drinkwater, SFX)
„Joyland describes being young with the necessary vigour, and the slow agony with which a broken heart heals with the necessary tenderness.” (Laurence Phelan, The Independent)
„What makes King special is that hes an unusually imaginative horror writer whos as interested in characterisation as he is in fright.” (Tom Cox, Daily Express)
