Joyland - by Stephen King

For my 3rd book this month for my Halloween Reading Challenge, I chose Stephen King’s Joyland.

As a horror/thriller, this book doesn’t cut it. It’s not even remotely scary, and the only bit of suspense is in the last 20 or so pages; however, I found myself really liking this book as a whole. 251 more words

Stephen King, Joyland

La mia prima volta con King. Piacevolmente scorrevole. Non privo di una leggera tensione, che cresce pian piano, facendo sospettare che ci sia qualcosa di più da sapere rispetto al racconto di come un ventenne supera le proprie pene d’amore. Carino!

Stephen King, Joyland

A me è piaciuto molto. Erano decenni che non prendevo in mano un libro di King e quest’incontro fortuito in primavera ha orientato le mie letture estive in una direzione quasi ossessiva, quasi come Roland the Gunslinger verso la Torre nera. 57 more words

I love Autumn; it’s my favourite time of year. I love the back to school feel of it, the nip in the air. I’m too pale to be a summer kind of girl. 234 more words
