The Funland Amusement Park provides more fear than fun these days. A vicious pack known as the Trolls are preying on anyone foolish enough to be alone at night. Folks in the area blame them for the recent mysterious disappearances, and a gang of local teenagers has decided to fight back. But nothing is ever what it seems in an amusement park. Behind the garish paint and bright lights waits a horror far worse than anything found in the freak show.

In the Dark by Richard Laymon 3. Funland by Richard Laymon 3. You have Jeremy trying to make friends and look cool before the trollers, as well as dealing with his lust for Tanya, the troller leader, and his love for Shiner, a fellow troller. There's also the steady decline of Tanya's sanity, as she becomes more and more macabre as the book goes along.
The attacks and actual "horror" moments are so sparse compared to the other parts of the book that, halfway through, you might wonder, "Hey uh It was just an amusing thing I discovered while reading. Like Victor Hugo's "The Cathedral of Notre Dame" the original title for "Hunchback" , the title for this book seems to be just as much about the characters surrounding the location, rather than the more bizarre parts of the location itself.
Don't read this expecting people to die every single chapter. One thing I was surprised by was just how quick some of the character deaths went; sometimes it seemed way too quick, as if Laymon suddenly decided the body count needed to rise, and it needed to rise fast. For someone considered infamous for his descriptions of gore and violence, a lot of the deaths didn't seem that bad, or were so briefly described that they didn't feel all that gory.
The actual climax of the book was especially amusing to me. I won't give too much way, but I will say that, as I read it, I felt like the vision in my head was the final boss battle in a video game. The only downside of the climax is that a lot doesn't seem to get resolved afterward.
What were the motivations of the villains? How did this thing get fully organized? Questions like these are either answered partially, or not at all.
The ending almost felt a little rushed in that regard. Like the other Laymon book I read "The Cellar" , characters are for the most part weak in their delivery. If you gave me a line of dialogue from any character, I would probably be unable to tell you who exactly it was, since they all use the same swear words, the same kind of slang, etc.
The only dialogue that might stand out to me would be from Cowboy a troller who talks in wild west speak and the bums who of course have drunken accents. Ironically, the two characters who stood out the most for me in their personalities were the trolls Mag and Charlie. I say ironic because they're in a small section of one chapter, and to my recollection are never mentioned again; however, their banter and antics made me hope they would come up more often in the book sadly, they didn't.
Poppinsack was also a fun character, even though the book takes a few dark turns with him. Strange as this might sound, while I didn't find a lot of the characters unique, I did end up still interested in what they were doing, in one way or another. I was also amused by certain elements of the story line. It seems like all the police do in Boleta Bay are patrol Funland and give people rides around town.
One would've also thought there would be far more trollers out there, or people who would just be more curious as to WHY so many people are disappearing over by Funland. I'm also amused that hundreds upon hundreds of dirty, drunken, and very aggressive panhandlers didn't hurt Funland's business or attendance, given not only the fact that there are past crimes attributed to them, but by the very real fact that most businesses out there don't like frequent panhandlers harassing their customers, as it turns many away.
Despite all the problems or shortcomings I may have listed, the book is still fun as a read, even if as a guilty pleasure.

I enjoyed getting it all the way through, and by the time I got to the third act, I couldn't put it down, and ended up staying into the late hours of the night finishing it. I didn't regret my time spent on it, from the shocking beginning to the happy conclusion - a conclusion which had quite a surprise ending for one character. But I won't give it away. Read it. This particular book is by no means Laymon was a great storyteller.
This particular book is by no means a barnstorming epic of biblical proportions. Though I've enjoyed many Laymon novels, "Funland" is one of the better ones.
The gripping story had many interesting and well-developed characters. Paperback Verified Purchase. I've been a fan of Richard Laymon for about a decade now, since first discovering The Traveling Vampire Show when it was released. I love that novel, and recommend it, along with The Stake, Savage, and this one, Funland. Funland takes place in a fictional seaside town called Boleta Bay, which is based upon Santa Cruz, CA, according to the author. Like it's real life counterpart, Boleta Bay has a run-down Boardwalk overrun with lecherous and aggressive bums, called "trolls".
The action here centers around a group of teenagers who form a gang to go around "trolling", or beating, these bums and doing all manner of other abuses to them. The side story involves 2 cops who are trying to find out who the Trollers are and catch them.

The characters are memorable and believable, the dialog well-written, the story is paced nicely, and there's a couple nice twists I don't want to spoil. As with most of Laymon's works, there's plenty of violence and sex. This one has a couple of his best characters ever, especially the young banjo player, Robin. He usually has one really great, strong female character in every book, which is refreshing. A terrific example of Laymon's work.
A group of kids are following homeless people around and torturing them- "trolling" they call it - but is someone also following them???
