Reading right now and love it so far... ( )

A nice light mystery read. There may be a ghost, but it isn't horror. ( )

Good stuff. I only give it 4 stars because I hold King to a higher standard. ( )

A ghost story AND an old-school amusement park? Yes, please. It wasn't the scariest thing King has written but it was a cool concept. More of a whodunit with just a little horror. Fun, easy summer reading. ( )

Non leggevo King da un po' di tempo e sono felice di constatare che la sua penna non si è appannata nel corso del tempo. Certo, siamo lontani dall'horror duro & puro dei primi tempi, ma la sua evoluzione è in migliorando. In questo caso anche il finale regge (ci sono problemi tra me e i finali di King), perciò sono decisamente soddisfatta. Solo, cuoricini come divisori? Seriamente? ( )

For Donald Westlake
First words
I had a car, but on most days in that fall of 1973 I walked to Joyland from Mrs. Shoplaw's Beachside Accommodations in the town of Heaven's Bay.
