Joyland gets good on page 45.
As has been stated in other threads about Joyland-- it is "not" the norm in style for SK. It is written in pulp fiction style. Diid you read Colorado Kid? Also done in pulp fiction style. It is a shame you stopped at page 44. It is a fantastic example of pulp fiction.
Sorry you do not like the Tv show- Under The Dome. You do realize that it is not meant to be like the book.
To each his/her own in likes and dislikes.
I confess, I wrote Joyland ! Just kidding, I wish I had that much talent. Your missing a treat by ending early.
No really, clreebebldl, what do you really think? Don't be coy.
Everyone's a critic, sheeeesh.
I'm currently reading Joyland, and I have to disagree, but the first several pages took some getting into. It's rare for me to have trouble getting into Sai King's books, but there have been a few. Some of his books like this one, the Colorado Kid, Blockade Billy, and such are different from his usual works. Some people just don't get into them, I guess.
I'm not thrilled with some things about Under The Dome either, but it is watchable so far. I've just accepted that it's not related to the book much. The writing could have been better, but it's not Stephen King doing the writing (yet, he will be writing the second season premiere, I think).
At least she bought the book...
Oh, look; yet another dipstick who registers for the sole purpose of saying something negative.
