Joyland – Stephen King (Buchrezension)

Welcome to Joyland!

Geneigter King-Leser,

“Joyland” stellt nach “Der Anschlag” wieder eine Perle aus dem Geiste Kings dar, mit Genuss ist dieses ungewohnt dünne Buch zu lesen. Es entführt uns in den Sommer des Jahres 1973, nach Joyland und Heaven’s Bay, in den Sommer aus Devin Jones Leben, in welchem er vom Jungen zum Mann wurde, den er zeitgleich als schönsten und schlimmsten Sommer seines Lebens bezeichnet.
Als Student ohne finanzielle Mittel ist Jonesy darauf angewiesen in den Semesterferien jobben zu gehen und so entscheidet er sich für den Vergnügungspark “Joyland”, in welchem er sich schnell wohlzufühlen beginnt. Seine erste große Liebe gilt es zu überwinden und würde dies einem jungen Mann nicht schon genug Arbeit bedeuten, so stößt er bald auf eine Legende, nach der der Geist einer dort ermordeten jungen Frau in der Geisterbahn Joylands spuken soll. Er ahnt nicht, dass dieser Sommer ihm wahre Freundschaft, Melancholie und erschütternde Ereignisse bringen wird.

In der Ich-Perspektive schildert Stephen King hier einen fast träumerisch wirkenden Rückblick auf die Jugend Jonesys. In einer ruhigen Erzählung werden die Ereignisse des Sommers ’73 geschildert und die übernatürlichen Elemente treten nicht sonderlich in den Vordergrund. Es geht vielmehr um Erinnerungen, um das Erwachsenwerden und um einen ungeklärten Mordfall. Devin lernt Freunde für’s Leben kennen wie auch eigentlich schwache Menschen, die dennoch unglaublich stark sind. Selbst ungeliebte Charaktere warten manchmal mit einer Überraschung auf und machen zusammen mit der gewohnten Charaktertiefe ein wunderbares Buch aus. Zudem ist der Schreibstil äußerst schön und gewürzt mit eine gewissen liebevollen Melancholie in Bezug auf die Vergangenheit, wie es schon in “Der Anschlag” vorgekommen ist.

“Joyland” ist für mich ein wunderbares, nur wärmstens weiterzuempfehlenes Buch von Stephen King, dass auch für Leser außerhalb seiner Fans durchweg hervorragend geeignet ist. King schafft es hier erneut den Ideenreichtum seiner jungen Schriftstellerjahre mit seinem gereiften Schreiben zu vereinbaren. Ein Must-Have in jedem Bücherregal!

Eine leidenschaftliche King-Anhängerin

    Hi, I think your site may be having internet browser compatibility problems.

    Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that,
    excellent site!

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a
    format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Cheers

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get

    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out
    the entire thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
