Joyland by Stephen King (2013)

I was having a discussion with a friend of mine about Stephen King around the time of the final Dark Tower books, and he told me “If Stephen King writes one more book with a magical retard, we’re going to have to take his typewriter away from him”. 811 more words

Review: Joyland by Stephen King

First, let me point out that this is my first Stephen King book. And unfortunately, its not his best work to begin with.

Carny/Carnie. If you can relate or you had past (or still have) experiences with carny life than this might be for you. 275 more words


Joyland (King)

I like carnivals and amusement parks; I admit it. There’s a kind of poetry in them, I think. Maybe it’s a romantic idea. Who knows? That, and the summer, and a forthcoming adventure of my own, drove to me to this Stephen King novel. 98 more words


book review - JOYLAND by Stephen King

First things first, I am not a novel reader.  I do not enjoy reading novels as I feel like it does not teach me anything (with some exceptions of course) and I feel like I’m wasting my time.   171 more words
