Reading Surprise April 22, 2015

stephen king 003   Joyland by Stephen King.  A good author but going by the cover I had my doubts about this one.  Much to my surprise it turned out to be a potboiler or a cheap thriller/horror.  It was a very GOOD READ.   I liked it a lot.  And it’s small size made it easy to carry about.  A good one to have for airplane travel.  I’m still an old fashioned reader of paper copies.

    As a long-time fan of King, I do at times get disappointed, but Joyland and the Revival right behind it were right up there with the “Best of King”. But, to me – no one will ever compete with the originality and constant generation of interest as King and the “Black Tower” series!!!!
