Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE - Stephen King's terrifying classic.

'They float...and when you're down here with me, you'll float, too.'

Derry, Maine is just an ordinary town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part, a good place to live.

It is a group of children who see - and feel - what makes Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes is appears as an evil clown named Pennywise and sometimes IT reaches up, seizing, tearing, killing . . .

Time passes and the children grow up, move away and forget. Until they are called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories, emerging again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

    As someone with a fear of clowns, and therefore unable/unwilling to watch the films, I thought I’d give the book a go. The jumping between past and present was a bit confusing, sometimes difficult to tell whether you were in the 50’s or 80’s. I was disappointed to discover the root of It was supernatural, expecting more of a realistic, human psychopath to be the culprit. Not so much about a clown. Not particularly scary or unsettling. Let’s just say I slept fine! Disappointing.

    I think IT is the scariest book I’ve ever read. The problem, IT is a very long book, well I think I know why IT is long because Stephen King wants the book to have a lot of horror in and he didn’t want to rush it. But I think IT is a good book.
  • A masterpiece written by a storytelling genius.

    I’ve read IT probably seventeen times since I was 12, and every time I start it I’m completely enthralled within the first few lines. After I’ve finished the book I always feel the same sadness, like I’m losing touch with beloved friends, which is what the main characters of the story become. You can not go through their individual traumas and not love them at the end of it, and it’s the bond between these seven children that brings this book truly to life. The Derry Interludes, and the tales of the murdered children always give me goosebumps, and the ability King has of painting a picture so vivid that you feel as though you’re there, is most prevalent during these tales. I love this book, completely and unequivocally, and despite the fact that it’s a mammoth read, not a minute of that time spent ever feels wasted. I hope to read it another seventeen times before I’m done.
  • Best book ever!

    I was haunted by this story as a child and finally got the nerve to read the book in my 20s. I squirmed and winced dozens of times, but I was genuinely absorbed in this truly great story and I would wholly recommend reading this book.

    the miniseries of IT was my childhood favourite movie, as my dad is a massive king fan. And now that I am 18, and old enough to read the book, it has become, in adulthood my favourite book. I love this story, these characters and this author dearly. I always will.
  • The quintessential page turner. Read this before seeing the unknown!

    Leaps and bounds better than the film, even though the movie itself is pretty faithful and entertaining. This book kept me engaged like few others have.
