Joyland by Stephen King

Joyland by Stephen King

Nostalgia soaked tale of a young man’s coming of age summer working as a carny in one of the last indipendant carnival attractions on the East Coast. Joyland is a murder mystery, a love story, and a delightfully fun King bon bon without much lasting impact.

A fun yarn that gets occasionally a little bit heavy handed with the carny-speak, but is otherwise pretty vintage King. Lots to like here if you are a fan of his work.
