Publisher's Summary

To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry, Maine, was just their hometown: familiar, well ordered for the most part. A good place to live. It was the children who saw - and felt - what made Derry so horribly different.
In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes IT reached up, seizing, tearing, killing....
The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed, and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of IT was deep buried, wrapped in forgetfulness. Until they were called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

Eerie reminder

So this book made me think back to my childhood and hit the nail on the head on how when we are children the world seems so different. Funny how the older we get the less durable and because of that we take less risks. I loved how the past and present play out at the same time and how children had to become grown up before their time to fight a seemingly unstoppable evil!

Masterful - a horror classic

If you could sum up It in three words, what would they be?

Elegant, sinister, terrifying.

What did you like best about this story?

Stephen King has stated that his aim for "It" was to write his thesis on horror - to include everything that scared him as a child and adult. I think he has achieved this. It's a masterwork in terror. Although he has better known books, this for me is his scariest work. It is a long work following the youth and grown-up lives of several friends in a small Maine town. Both the children and the adults they become have well-realised damages and fears, and this relatability makes the scary encounters even more powerful. An iconic work I would recommend to anyone who fancies a chill sent expertly down their spine.

What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

Steven Weber reads immensely well, with passion and flair. It's more of a performance than a straight read, with each character given a distinct voice. And perhaps most important of all - his Pennywise is blood-curdling!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"They all float down here..."

gripping

Despite its length it never feels like it is dragging, allowing you to become enthralled in the characters lives and sucks you in like a vacuum to story

One of my favorite SK books

It's a great story that I have read at least twice. Having it read to me was very enjoyable. The voices done by Steven Weber were extraordinarily good. Thank you and well done. Looking forward to my next book!
