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?

— Daniel

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!

Description


Soon to be a major motion picture—from master storyteller Stephen King comes his classic #1 New York Times bestseller!

Can an entire city be haunted? The Losers’ Club of 1958 seems to think so. After all, when they were teenagers back then, these seven friends who called the small New England metropolis of Derry their home had first-hand experience with what made this place so horribly different. Every twenty-seven years, something that has existed here for a very long time comes back to terrorize Derry, lurking in the city storm drains and sewers, taking the shape of every nightmare and deepest dread. And yet, time passed and the children grew up, moved away...the horror of what they all experienced buried deep, wrapped in forgetfulness. Now nearly thirty years later, they’re all being called back to Derry for a final life-or-death confrontation with a primordial evil that stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories. For the Losers’ Club and the thing known only as “It” have some unfinished business with each other….
