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!

Incredibly absorbing and intricate story with impeccable vocal performance. Enjoyed every second of it, a true Stephen King classic come alive with Webers many voices.
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..."

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!
