Joyland by Stephen King Review

I really liked this book, partially because it was by Stephen King and partially because it was short; easy to read in a busy summer.  The plot is a simple ghost story, the subplot about a boy/man still discovering himself and all that he can offer to the world.  King is really good at character development and Devin Jones is no exception. His angst about his lost girlfriend diminishes as he saves a child from harm at the carnival where he works and arranges a carnival day for a dying child he has befriended. The boy's mother, Devin's new lover gives him confidence that he will need and use in future relationships. This was a good, mini-Stephen King novel.
