IT took me four months to read. IT is a monster that takes many forms, including a nearly twelve hundred page beast of a book. IT is definitely worth the effort. I can now cross IT off my King bucket list. Can you read IT? Can you dare IT? Can you conquer IT? Will you buy IT?

For someone who is absolutely terrified of clowns, I had a hard time both picking up AND putting down this book. Now, I have had a hard time even being able to claim I read a book that genuinely scared me. Even with movies, I just don't get scared nor much beyond tense. Well, I was tense while reading this to say the least. Stephen King's famous book "IT" definitely spooked me. This novel, for anyone who isn't aware, follows the exerience of seven children as they get terrorized for an evil clown (Okay fine he technically isn't a clown, he's an evil entity that disguises himself as one... I still don't see the difference) who exploits the fears of those he hunts. I absolutely loved this novel. It's flavorful language and descriptive scenes put's you in the story itself. Have you ever watched a movie in the dark? Try reading this one in the dark with a flashlight or book lamp, I dare you!

"A great book...a landmark in American literature."--Chicago Sun-Times

Welcome to Derry, Maine...

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.
