    "It's a fun supernatural carnival exploration. If you want realistic horror this isn't it. But the carnival setting is creepy enough in itself. "

    "Joyland and Dolores Claiborne are my two favorite non-horror books by King. Joyland is a great mystery book that I found to be riveting throughout. The ending it a little cliche but the book is well worth the read. "

    "What a perfect story to continue the hard case crime tradition. Joyland is just another one of Stephen King's brilliant works!"

    "It sounds like an interesting story. A little out of his usual, but well received."

    "King is known for horror, but he's a great writer whatever he's tackling. In Joyland, he steps into what looks like a fairly basic crime tale, but in typical King fashion turns it up until you're hanging off every page wondering what's going to happen next. The reviews and awards this has been given are no joke; it's a great read that keeps you guessing the whole way through. And if you're a little squeamish, this might the King you've been looking for."

    "Joyland (Hard Case Crime) is one of the best modern mystery crime fiction books that I've read. I'm normally into classic crime but this one reminded me very much of those. I had trouble putting it down!"

    "I consider myself pretty well-versed on young adult crime books, and this is one of the better ones that I've come across. I mean, it's Stephen King - can you really go wrong? Unlike a lot of the fluffy, vapid writing that you see in this genre, this one is well put together, both structurally, in terms of the plot dynamics, and the actual writing itself. If you're looking for a step up in quality from the usual young-adult fiction, take a look at this one. "

    "Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. "

    "If you enjoy crime books then you need to add Joyland to one of your collections to be read. This book was recommended to my by my significant other. I was a bit skeptical about this book since it started off slowly; however, the characters were so interesting and I was quickly hooked."
