Now 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).
Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine, on September 21, 1947. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of Maine at Orono in 1970, he became a teacher. His spare time was spent writing short stories and novels. King's first novel would never have been published if not for his wife. She removed the firs...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok I found this an easy book to read. SK likes to build his characters so the book is a bit dragged out because of this. I would not read this book again, and would tell anyone new to SK to try something different for their first SK read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I loved this book. So many emotions! It made me cry and afraid to sleep at night all within the span of a few chapters. I loved the characters and how they developed. IT was a page turner for sure. It took a while to get into but once you do, you literally can not put it down! Highly recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but very long. Dragged on in some parts and it was a little hard to follow at times but overall it's really good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A long and windy book I enjoyed a lot of King’s book, but I did not enjoy this one. I wanted to like it, but it was too much; too much going on and it never tied together flawlessly. I did not like the part where the children are trying to leave the sewers and they do something to calm themselves. I found that inappropriate. The theme of the novel is supposed to be about friendship, but this part distorts and perverts the idea of friendship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it. My first experience with King's full horror novel. It was awesome. Exciting and unnerving, both on the surface and digging a little deeper. Loved it. I just started reading King a few years ago; there is a lot more in my future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best of all time "It" is by far in my top 5 Stephen King novels. This book is very, very long but very worth it. It's easy to stay intrigued by this novel because there are so many different characters' story lines to follow. I bawled like a baby at the end just because I didn't want it to be over!
Date published: 2017-12-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a Big Book. Perhaps I'm not in the best position to give an overall review of IT, as I am far from finishing the book. IT is almost 1200 pages, but if you were as enthralled with the story and the mythos that is presented in the 1990 miniseries and 2017's film adaptation as I was, you too will be able to keep going. What's nice about King's narrative style is that he knows how to establish a world and makes characters you can sympathize or identify with. This is a Stephen King classic novel that, while not a 'must-read', is still worth checking out if big books are your thing. If you liked the movie, maybe check this out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1184 pages of chilling... A huge book that I just couldn't put down. King is the master of horror and suspense. After seeing and enjoying the movie I had to check out the source material and boy did it not let down. The book is, as with most cases, far superior. If you want to spend a few nights not sleeping pick this book up! #plumreview

Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic!!! Not much to say about this behemoth of a book that hasn't already been said. It's definitely earned its place as a classic. The creepiness and tension are through the roof. The writing is flowing and elegant. It's got some messed up moments, but for the most part, I found the ending to be really endearing and heartfelt. There are definitely some moments that will stick with me for a long time, and I found it to be one of Stephen King's best. Not one to miss if you love horror!

Date published: 2017-11-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my fav and massive I struggled to get through this. Obviously, this is a well-known book but the amount of detail for everything made getting through this a very slow and boring process. I also didn't find it very horrific, mostly creepy. Personally, I needed more scary action rather than talk and the most cringe worthy scenes didn't involve the clown. If it weren't for the support of the audiobook I don't think I would have finished it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing beats classic King Read this when it first came out (I was 11) and re-reading really made me question my mothers parenting abilities. This book is creepy as heck. Love classic King.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I am just getting into Stephen King. I started pretty late with Doctor Sleep (sequel to the Shinning) and fell in love. He has such a DESCRIPTIVE writing style. If there was a man watching the story from a window on a Saturday afternoon but has nothing to do with the story line - you will read about it! Then, chapters/100s of pages later, he makes relevance in the random details he made you read before. I have purchased at least 5 more King's since this one and can't wait to dig in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I would have never thought I would be a horror fan but after even only reading part of it I know the rest will be just as amazing. Stephan King has an amazing way of telling the story from a child perspective it gives me flash backs to my own childhood even though I grew up in a different era than the book takes place in. Definitely a monster of a book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic This book is amazing, it is so large and full of information that you could read it over and over again and still find new and exciting parts of the story to feed your soul. I would recommend this not because of the new remake of the movie but because this book is a timeless classic that will surely give you goosebumps while also captivating the reader. The book is way better than either of the movies so regardless of if your a fan or not of them I would give the book a go!

Date published: 2017-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from reader beware, you're in for a scare Stephen King is hands down my favorite writer and while IT isn't my absolute favorite novel from him it is one of his best. It's a dark, unsettling story which has many moments that might upset the reader depending on their ability to handle disturbing scenarios.The characters are well developed, complex, and enjoyable. Given the graphic nature I would only recommend this one to adults who love a good scary story. It's a really great read for a dark and chilly fall evening
