Description

Soon to be a major motion picture—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).

    I'm a fan of a lot of King's other novels, but had never read this one. With the new movie being promoted, I thought it was time I checked it out. I was immediately hooked and wasn't able to put it down until I was finsihed. It is deeply disturbing on multiple levels, and I am still unsettled days after finishing it. If you haven't read it and are interested in suspensefu and unsettling books, do yourself a favor and check it out.
  • A true classic

    I remember back in my sophomore year of high school being a huge book worm. School began to get in the way of this and I haven't been able to read much since. But I saw the trailer for the new IT movie and I felt compelled to read the book. I probably won't be able to enjoy the movie now, but this book is truly incredible. It has a charm to it. It can make you laugh out loud one moment then unnerve you the next. I cried at the end. I find it truly ironic that I'm graduating high school in about a week and reading the ending made me realize something. I'll forget one day. I won't remember the people that helped shape me. A truly powerful novel for anyone who is a fan of literature. It: a story that people can attempt to replicate, but never duplicate
  • Wonderful Scary Book but Disappointing End

    While this book may be over a thousand pages you will want to read every page. This book is absolutely great in a lot of ways. This book shouldn't have an end like it did. While I was somewhat satisfied with the ending it did not fit the rest of the novel. It is one of my favorite books of all time though and I am super excited for the new movie.

    This book has everything. Sometimes you get lost in the beautiful storytelling and feel like you're reading a coming of age novel, and you become so attached to the characters, wanting them to succeed and break past their social barriers. Then pennywise pops back in and you remember this is a horror book, and it takes you on this constant emotional ride where half of the book is working to terrify you to your core, while the other half is filled with friendship, love, mystery and every day struggle. Definitely one of the most horrifying things I've read, just because of the "realness" of everything that occurs. It amazes me how some of the darkest, most horrifying parts of the book still manage to come from humans. WARNING: this IS a Stephen king book. Expect sex in odd forms and fashions.

    This book took me a lot longer then usual to read due to being so long, but it was a great journey. Character development and detail of the city of Derry is phenomenal. This book is not scary as it is thrilling. It takes a while for King to set the page turning mood, but when he does you better set a day aside to binge read.
