3 1/2 Platypires for Joyland by Stephen King

I would never consider myself an avid Stephen King reader. The works that I have read were quite enjoyable. I guess I wasn't expecting a coming of age story based on the synopsis and the book cover. I guess that is my fault and I thought the story dragged at times.
As far as the mystery aspect of the story it was sorta lackluster but the coming of age part was okay. I did like the characters and did learn quite a bit about amusement parks.
Overall this was an okay read and would recommend it for the die hard Stephen King fans.
