Publisher's Summary

"A landmark in American literature" (Chicago Sun-Times) - Stephen King's number-one national best seller about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as 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 28 years ago calls them to 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 and listeners 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.

Why do words drop off?

I gave "performance" three stars for a very specific reason. During this book, the last word of certain sentences is dropped or cut off. It makes me feel like I have missed things in the book. The performance was excellent, but it seems like editing screwed up a lot. I'd recommend a different version of this book if you are looking to get it.

Chapters run into each other

Any additional comments?

I don't feel like the editing is bad, it's just that some chapters end in the middle of the sentence and then resume in the next chapter. It's a little jarring but not the narrators fault. (This happens a lot in the second half of the book)
