Staff Reviews


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


It: Chapter Two—soon to be a major motion picture in 2019!

Stephen King’s terrifying, classic #1 New York Times bestseller, “a landmark in American literature” (Chicago Sun-Times)—about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers…an evil without a name: It.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real.

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 the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers.

Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It.

“Stephen King’s most mature work” (St. Petersburg Times), “It will overwhelm you…to be read in a well-lit room only” (Los Angeles Times).
