4.0 out of 5 stars All the Ups and Downs of a Carnival Ride Sept. 27 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First of all, anyone reading this who loves Richard Laymon should go on over to England where you can buy every one of his books at any bookstore (or find a friend who can bring them all back to you). Funland is one of his more entertaining violent romps and anyone who has ever been to an amusement park will love it. The storyline follows the basic premise of new boy in town meets up with bad bunch of kids who are terrorizing the homeless shacked up at a local amusement park they all live near. Little do they know that they are not the only ones doing the terrorizing. The story moves along at a great pace, introducing lots of characters and has 2 distinct parts, the first developing all the kids and adult's personalities and then the move into the Funhouse where the slaughters begin. I didn't give this book 5 stars even though it is a great, entertaining read only for the fact that I thought the ending was REALLY farfetched, even for Laymon. Get it in paperback, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading Laymon is like eating "Ruffles"... Jan. 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
you can't put them down. "Funland" is one of the best of Laymon's books (and he has many GREAT books). Get the UK version if at all possible because it has 500 pages, not the 390+ that other versions have. You don't want to miss any of the action in this novel. The sleepy tourist trap of a town called Boleta Bay will never be the same when some of the local kids declare "war" on the indigents and derelicts (called "trolls") that are terrorizing the citizens and visitors to the town. Laymon's characterization is terrific and you find yourself with mixed emotions about the leading characters. Many twists and turns are part of a fairly diverse plot that rockets to a roller-coaster of an ending. You'll find yourself wishing that there were 500 more pages of this book when you finish! This book is not for the fate of heart or those that are offended by the gore and violence that are a staple of Laymon's writing. But, on the other hand, if you like great storytelling with great characters, by all means pick this book (or any of Laymon's work) and settle in for a long night.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Laymon's Finest April 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
IF you're a Laymon fan and you haven't read this one, you're missing one of his best (and that's saying a lot). If I had to pick a favorite Laymon book, it would be really hard, but probably I would be torn between this and Endless Night (both sadly out of print). This is a nice long one and you won't be able to put it down. There are tons of twists and turns that you don't see coming, some really gruesome scenes, typical sick Laymon characters, and the last few sentences are an O.Henry type ending that totally threw me for a loop and blew me away. This one came and went in bookstores way too fast, and is an undiscovered treasure. If you have the excellent taste to dig Richard Laymon and haven't read this, it's worth doing an out of print search me, you won't be disapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing March 2 2000
By oktay
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my second Laymon book and i loved it.The first one was The Cellar. What i think Funland is better then The Cellar. i cant find laymon's book easily but i am happy to see these books on the net. we have just flesh the cellar and funland. perhaps i should search more.anyway laymon is really great in this book and jeremy was a exciting character. I HAve a doubt about gloria's end? but i am trying to solve it. anyway , thanks for this book. because it is like a puzzle, and mr.laymon provokes us to think.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well done horror thriller. July 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was my first Richard Laymon book so it will always be special for me. Laymon creates sick and twisted characters you want to kill side by side with loveable cool characters you want to hug and kiss. The thriller builds up to a page turning climax in the last 100 pages. Some great plot twists makes this book into being even nicer. If you never read a Laymon try this one first. If you DID read a Laymon and liked his style, YOU MUST GET THIS ONE!

By A Customer

Perhaps one of the best books of all time, I was so impressed I read it again, and bought my girlfriend a copy to read on a flight to the states... its not horror but it will make you jump... its not suspense but it will keep you hanging... its not romance but you will fall in love with the plot... all in all a right riveting read
