Go back to you Stephen King novel.'Stephen King On Growing Up, Believing In God And Getting Scared' "For 20 years, Stephen King has had an image stuck in his head: It's a boy in a wheelchair flying a kite on a beach. "It wanted to be a story, but it wasn't a story," he tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. But little by little, the story took shape around the image and focused on an amusement park called "Joyland" located just a little farther down the beach.Liberals/Democrats would agree Obama waged an Unconstitutional War against Libya and should be charge with War Crimes .Right!! if not, why Not?
King's new thriller is set in North Carolina in 1973. Joyland has a horror house and a torture chamber, but it's not exactly a horror novel. The park's fun house may be haunted by a ghost which may explain the dead bodies but the book isn't exactly a supernatural thriller, either. Instead, the book combines elements of crime, horror and the supernatural. The main character is a college student who aspires to write for The New Yorker. After his heart is broken by his girlfriend, he wants to get away from New England and takes a job in North Carolina, at the Joyland amusement park, where he enters a different world." http://www.npr.org/
