3.0 out of 5 stars light horror story May 11 2013
By Bach
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly light and uncomplicated horror story. The plot is unsophisticated and develops with few twists and turns to a fairly predictable ending. It's easy to read and cleanly written and medium quality.

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. 13 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 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 i loved it! Oct. 13 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
it's really true what they say: laymon is unable to write a lousy book. this is just as good as all the others - lots of thrills, gore, adventure & pure mayhem. it's pretty unpredictable too: betcha never expected one of those kids to bite the other one's ear off when they were fighting!
