Stephen King's #1 Bestseller As You've Never Seen It BeforeFeaturing more than 20 illustrations by acclaimed artists Pat Kinsella, Robert McGinnis, and Mark Summers, this brand new edition of JOYLAND brings the carny world to life in all its bright and sinister glory.College student Devin Jones took the summer job at Joyland hoping to forget the girl who broke his heart. But he wound up facing something far more terrible: the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and dark truths about life-and what comes after-that would change his world forever.A riveting story about love and loss, about growing up and growing old-and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time- JOYLAND is Stephen King at the peak of his storytelling powers. With all the emo- tional impact of King masterpieces such as The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption, JOYLAND is at once a mystery, a horror story, and a bittersweet coming-of-age novel, one that will leave even the most hard-boiled of readers pro- foundly moved.

A different journey
Stephen King's "Joyland" may not be what you might expect from him. This is a sometimes sweet coming of age story, losing one love and gaining another. There are elements of mystery and a bit of the macabre. I look forward to reading this one again.
