Listen mit Joyland. ALLE Stephen King Verfilmungen von Frank Underwood. I looked forward to sensationalist violence, cheap thrills and snappy, stylistic dialogue and no, sorry Uncle Stevie, but you don't win any points for injecting the patter of carny speak on every other page.
King can't stop himself from telling an entirely different kind of story about a young man with a broken heart and his extended summer spent growing up and getting on.
It's a story of emotions and memories and the metaphor of a flying kite and the panoramic view from a giant Ferris wheel. In this case, for Hard Case, I would have much rather seen those ratios reversed.
Another problem I had view spoiler [was the kid in the wheelchair. His second sight ability struck me as too deus ex machina serving no other purpose really other than to save our hero at the last minute from certain death I also felt the kid was just a pale knock-off of Danny Torrence.
If Joyland had turned out to be a full on hyper-dramatized pulp novel, a kid character such as this could have probably fit right in and worked.
But the majority of the story is ponderous and beautiful and as a plot device, the second sight stands out like a sore thumb. Constant Readers will take pleasure in immersing themselves for a little while in a Kingscape that feels both familiar and satisfying.
It's good people, it's just not all that it's quacked up to be. This review has also been posted to Busty Book Bimbo Jul 02, Florence Lefty MacIntosh rated it it was amazing Recommended to Florence Lefty by: Hooked by the title and cover.

Tons of suspense, the mystery of beautiful women being murdered to unravel, a plot that moves and characters written with sensitivity, you'll care about them.
Keep 'em coming King! Something intensely exciting about the lights, the smells, the crush of people — and that beautiful intermingling of full blast rock 'n roll accompanied by screams of terror.

Shortly after his arrival, his girlfriend finishes their relationship and breaks his heart. In an attempt to forgot about the girl, he quickly becomes engrossed in an unsolved murder that happened in Joyland a number of years ago.
He also meets a young woman and her dying child, and begins to learn a lot more than he first anticipated he would at Joyland.
I've been on such a great run recently with King books, and this one was no exception. From the very first page, I was drawn in and constantly writing down quotes in my little notebook.
It literally felt like this book was speaking to me personally. The sense of nostalgia and the loss of your first love is overpowering. It's a sweet look back on the heartache and self-doubt that comes with such a loss.
The plot itself at Joyland was possibly a tad predictable at times, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable.
The characters themselves were some of the most likeable King has ever written - Devin himself, Annie and Mike.
I wanted to spend more time with them, but I also feel like a lot of the charm of this book is in the fact that's it's relatively short and sweet.
Devin is a good man, sweet, dependable, reliable. Wendy Keegan is a goddamn fool for breaking up with him!
You can tell from the very beginning that he is just a lovely guy, and his relationship with both Annie and Mike is a perfect example of this. This is a great book to suggest to people who are possibly interested in reading King, but don't like horror.
It's a murder mystery essentially, with a teeny tiny bit of horror. This feels like King at his best, you can almost imagine yourself being in Joyland with Devin that year.
He creates a world for you and then invites you to step into it and immerse yourself in it. My only complaint really is how predictable the story felt at times, and given that I just don't think it's on the same level as my more recent reads, I'm going to deduct a star and give it 4 stars out of 5!
A quick, fun read. The perfect read for summer! View all 4 comments. The American author Stephen King is one of today's most popular writers of horror and supernatural novels and stories, occasionally branching out into other genres such as science fiction, fantasy, or factual books.
With Joyland , published in , he has once again tried his hand at a crime novel. As with his first novel of this type, it was published by "Hard Case Crime" who specialise in crime fiction by both established and new authors who write hardboiled crime novels.
Some of their books b The American author Stephen King is one of today's most popular writers of horror and supernatural novels and stories, occasionally branching out into other genres such as science fiction, fantasy, or factual books.
Some of their books by well-known authors are published under pseudonyms. Some are what the publishers call "lost noir masterpieces In some ways this one fits the imprint's theme quite well.
The cover Art implies pulp fiction, and although the novel is not exactly that, there are no surprises. The story is fairly formulaic, and it has to be said, rather dull.
It is doubtful whether this would have got a large readership had it not had Stephen King's name attached. The novel is told by the protagonist in flashback.
Devin Jones is remembering the time back in , when he was a gauche college student at the University of New Hampshire. He took a summer job at a small struggling and dingy amusement park called "Joyland" in North Carolina, hoping to get over his first love.
Apparently Stephen King has said that "Joyland" is based on the real life "Canobie Lake Park", an amusement park in Salem. The first section deals with the history of Devin's failed relationship with the girl who broke his heart.
For the first quarter of the book, this reads like a routine coming-of-age story. There is a lot about Joyland, and the "carny" people who work there.
The reader is introduced to a lot of the "talk the talk" slang language which the carnies use, sometimes so that the people using the amusement park will not understand them.
Fairly soon, Devin is given some information by a fortune teller, which he half believes. One of them has The Sight.
The murderer has never been caught. For much of the book, these facts just stay in the background. We learn more about Devin's emerging friendship with his fellow summer workers, Tom and Erin, with whom he shares lodgings in a boarding house.
There are descriptions of a handful of other staff at the amusements park, carnies, some of whom have been there for many years, others who have toured around.
When part of the fortuneteller's prediction comes true, Devin finds that his quick thinking means that he has earned the respect of all the carnies, including the owner of Joyland.
Devin finds that increasingly he enjoys his work at the park but he still feels that his heart is broken and cannot accept what has happened.
The vicious murder also begins to prey on his mind, and he desperately wants to see the girl's ghost for himself. When his friend, Tom, does see her ghost, he feels very resentful that he has not.
The reader can predict the relationship between the two other characters, and sure enough by the end of the summer Tom and Erin leave as a romantic item, and Devin stays on at the amusement park.
From the Devin of the present, we learn that they are to stay together for many years. The Devin of however has decided to take a year off from university, and stay at the park while it is closed.
We then meet two new characters, a rather aloof woman, Annie, and her wheelchair bound son, Mike, plus their dog. Earlier the reader had to plod through the details of a sad stereotypical three-pronged friendship.
Now the reader has to put their brain out of action yet again. Two suspiciously random facts are thrown into the mix, facts so unlikely that they scream "telegraphed ending" to us.
Even the period feel is not particularly vivid. There are few details which convey the time - no references to music, nothing about current events, no details about fashions, TV programmes, fad foods of the time - at one point a microwave oven was used, which is a bit of an anachronism for a hard-up student in There seems to have been no attempt to invoke any nostalgia, or atmosphere, which is rather a missed opportunity.
Neither is there any suspense at all, until nearing the end. All the information seems to point to the conclusion that the murder was part of a string of serial murders, with connections which the police had missed.
In the novel Devin teaches the boy Mike to fly a kite, and the metaphor for flying, for being free of his wheelchair shackles, is rather heavy-handed.
Devin also begins to get closer to the woman who had seemed so reserved, and although she is quite a lot older and very protective of her child, a sort of intimacy grows up between them, which helps him to cope with his lost love.
They both realise that the son has remarkable powers of second sight. Of course he has. It's almost inevitable that a child who is destined to die young will have inexplicable supernatural and psychic powers in a book such as this.
It wouldn't be very surprising if he could levitate or walk on water. Approaching the end, some tension does begin to build up, although the hero being trapped with the murderer view spoiler [on an out of control ferris wheel is, again, a standard device.
The reader half expects it to accelerate dizzily to a climax as in Hitchcock's film. And remember the character whose only function was as a romantic interest plus being a crack shot?
It's time for her to take centre stage. It even takes place as a storm rages overhead. This is a book which passes the time.
It is reasonably well written; Stephen King has not become a best-selling author of over 50 novels without knowing a thing or two about story-telling.
There is a mystery, but it is very low-key. There is some emotional content; some attempt to make the main character grow through his experiences of love and loss, but the characters are all rather shallow, superficial descriptions of small town people.
There is no real puzzle, and the denouement is rather pedestrian rather than gripping. It would possibly have made a better short story than a novel.
There is a lot of padding about carny in the novel. It is an odd choice for the collection, as it is not particularly hardboiled; there is no cynicism on Devin's part, nor is he a detective.
In the end it is corny rather than carny. And perhaps this was entirely intentional. Oh, and by the way, don't wait around for the scene on the cover.

But what does that have to do with a woman and her dying child that Devin meets walking on a beach?
Stephen King throws the Hard Case line another bone with Joyland. Much like The Colorado Kid, it will undoubtedly draw much needed attention to the line despite not being like the other books.
Joyland is the story of Devin Jon On the heels of a breakup, college student Devin Jones takes a summer job at an amusement park, an amusement park haunted by the ghost of a woman murdered on one of the rides.
Joyland is the story of Devin Jones trying to get his shit together after being dumped by his girlfriend.
What better way to do that than to slave away at a carnival for 12 hours a day? Once Devin learns of the murder, he starts investigating.
Well, the investigation is incidental. Mostly he works at the carnival, saving a couple lives along the way and meeting a kid with muscular dystrophy that he takes a liking to, as well as his foxy young mother.
Stephen King's writing is firing on all cylinders in this one and it's a relief that he wrote a story that's less than pages for once. There are some anachronisms but they didn't yank me out of the story.
I thought I knew who the killer was but King managed to pull the rug out from under me just before the big reveal. I liked Devin a lot. He felt like an authentic 21 year old to me, something that a lot of writers can't seem to do.
He was also pretty relatable. I think I had an early onset of the 21's and it lasted until I was about A quick side note: I like that King named a traveling circus after Manly Wade Wellman.
I wonder how many people caught that reference. The only gripe I have with this book is that it doesn't feel like a Hard Case.
However, since it will let Hard Case keep the lights on for quite a while with the money it brings in, I'll let Uncle Steve off with a warning this time.

Published in by Hard Case Crime, the pulp-styled crime label owned by Titan Books, I picked it up at the library wanting a King book to read and fell in love with the cover art by the legendary Robert McGinnis Glen Orbik.
I should've known that redheads are nothing but trouble. The story is set in the s in the aforementioned North Carolina amusement park and is pages of schmaltz and self-indulgence leading up to a whodunit that I never mad I'm abandoning this effort by Stephen King.
The story is set in the s in the aforementioned North Carolina amusement park and is pages of schmaltz and self-indulgence leading up to a whodunit that I never made it to.
King might have wanted to hang out in a fun park but gave me no compelling reason to with this story. He breaks one of his own writing rules: "You must not come lightly to the blank page.
My favorite TV redhead is Agent Dana Scully Gillian Anderson from The X-Files. Who is Robert McGinnis? A cartoonist in the late s, his first cover illustrations appeared in for True Detective and Master Detective magazines.
He produced his first paperback cover in and never stopped working. The creation of the "McGinnis Woman" often involves long limbs, allure and a sleazy mystique.
He became a go-to artists for private dick novels like the Mike Shayne series, the Carter Brown adventures, but Perry Mason as well. His work illustrating movie posters ranged from the James Bond series, Breakfast At Tiffany's , Barbarella and The Odd Couple.
Apr 08, Kevin Kuhn rated it it was amazing. I read this book on vacation and flew through it in a day. She brings pictures and articles, proving that this was only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, which had never been connected by the police.
Devin becomes close to a standoffish woman named Annie, and her son, Mike, who both live near Joyland. Despite Annie's lukewarm treatment of Devin she comes to like him after seeing how he makes her dying son happy.
Mike reveals he knows about Linda's ghost and has a dog, and Devin realizes he is the second child in Rozzie's prediction. Devin is able to organize a private trip to Joyland for Mike, where the remaining employees pull out all the stops and make Mike's first and only visit unforgettable.
Mike's presence near Horror House helps free Linda's ghost. That night, Devin loses his virginity to Annie. Devin returns to his boarding house, which is preparing for an upcoming storm.
He begins looking through the pictures again and suddenly realizes that the murderer is in fact Lane Hardy. Lane has guessed that Devin knows who he is, and so threatens to kill Annie and Mike unless Devin meets him at Joyland.
Lane traps the two of them on the Ferris wheel in the middle of the storm and is about to kill Devin, when Annie shows up and fatally shoots Lane.
Devin learns that Mike had been awakened by another ghost of a park employee Devin had previously saved , who warned him about Lane. Annie and Mike return to Chicago to see Annie's estranged father, and Devin goes back to school.
Mike dies later that spring, requesting that his ashes be spread on the beach in North Carolina by Annie and Devin. Walter Kirn at The New York Times compared the novel to "a plump wad of cotton candy; it fills the mouth with fluffy sweetness that quickly dissolves when the reader starts to chew.
The Guardian called the novel "a far gentler, deeper, more thoughtful book than the one it masquerades as. More a coming-of-age mystery than a horror-filled thriller, it's closer to the tone of King's short story 'The Body' A TV series based on the novel is in development by Freeform.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Mystery Crime Horror. Devin bittet Erin kurz vor der Abreise, an der Universität weitere Nachforschungen zu betreiben.
Nachdem die Hauptsaison vorbei ist, lernt Devin am Strand Annie und ihren im Rollstuhl sitzenden Sohn Mike kennen. Er hatte den Jungen schon seit Beginn seiner Tätigkeit im Park jeden Tag am Strand gesehen.
Devin beobachtet die Mutter bei ihrem Versuch, einen Drachen steigen zu lassen. Nach einigen misslungenen Versuchen der Mutter bietet Devin an, ihnen das Fliegen des Drachens beizubringen.
Die drei freunden sich schnell miteinander an. Als sich Annie kurzzeitig von den beiden entfernt, erklärt ihm der Junge, dass er unter Muskelschwund leide und deshalb schon früh sterben werde.
Devin merkt schnell, dass Mike eine ähnliche hellseherische Fähigkeit wie die Hellseherin im Park besitzt. Devin bietet Annie an, Mike und sie für einen Tag nach Joyland mitzunehmen und schafft es, sie von der Idee zu überzeugen.
Eine Woche später kommen Tom und Erin zu Besuch nach Joyland. Erin bringt Devin eine Mappe mit den Ergebnissen von Nachforschungen, die sie während des Studiums angestellt hat.
Sie fand unter anderem heraus, dass die Art und Weise des Mordes in der Geisterbahn mit verschiedenen anderen Morden in den letzten Jahren in Verbindung gebracht werden kann.
Von der Vermieterin der Pension neben Joyland bekam sie verschiedene Bilder, welche nie in der Zeitung erschienen waren.
