Joyland

Joyland 


Author: Stephen King

Publisher: Recorded Books

Narrator: Michael Kelly 

Year: 2014

Is there a better author than Stephen King who can set the scene creating the perfect atmosphere for a story? I don’t think so. 


Joyland is set at a small amusement park along the North Carolina coast. Devin, a college student, decides to work there for the summer. He’s heartbroken after the girl he loved dumped him and he needs a change of scenery. Joyland amusement park is populated by all sorts of characters and tourists and a ghost. That’s the creepy part. It’s the ghost of a young woman who was murdered in the House of Horrors attraction and her killer was never found. Devin sets out to find the killer. Along the way he befriends a seriously ill ten year old boy who has a special gift and the boy’s mother. 


This story just pulled me right in. It has a great mix of murder mystery, creepy horror and tugs at your heartstrings. Actor Michael Kelly lends his considerable talent to the audiobook narration making this a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me. 


We have some chilly rain in my little corner of the world. How’s life where you are?
