Audio Book Summary

"A landmark in American literature" ( Chicago Sun-Times )-Stephen King's #1 national bestseller 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 ).

    Absolutely love this book. Scary as hell and has many layers of characters. Even at the age of 35 it is freaky. I too had attempted this book when I was younger but my imagination got the best of me. Narration made the story even more enjoyable.

    The Narration on this one was really, really good. The story was so dark and so much more than the original movie was.

    King is an exceptionally talented writer. In my opinion this is more of a losing of childhood story, than a coming of age story. What's more, they lost it twice. King, coming himself from a dismal, poor small town, does an excellent job bringing to life, from a child's perspective, this bleak yet at times adventurous existence that is growing up poor in a rural town. However King seems to view this fromessage the depressing side of losing all the magic, vitality, and seemingly eternal hopefulness of childhood. I find that the beginning and middle are full of passion and build, but the end fades quickly without much fuss. The narrator even implores it's young readers to go to the light and love the light of childhood and childhood beliefs as everything else is darkness and fades. If it weren't for the cocaine use, I'd say this was King's near-forty mid life crises and final homage and memorial to his lost childhood and the freedom and vitality he felt there. It is more of a story of psychological struggle that in the end fades and finally accepts the overtaking of aging and lost things/forgetfulness than an outright monster slaying adventure. Really enjoyed the read. Depressing worldview/outlook in its ending.

    Disturbing. Frightening. Horrifying. Terrifying. I first attempted to read this novel back in the '80's when I was eleven years old. I had begged my mom to buy me the paperback addition at the supermarket, and she finally agreed to if I promised to read the book all the way through. I gave her my word, but after maybe 100 pages in, but I was scarred for life. I got far enough in to be introduced to Pennywise, and the idea of a clown coming through the drain to get me consumed my nightmares. It terrified me so badly that I would clog the drain with a washcloth during showers, which ultimately flooded my parents bathroom, with the water overflow rotting out the linoleum floor. For the longest time, my dad could not figure out what the problem was. He thought it was a leak when really it was Pennywise. I suppose Stephen King may still owe my dad the money it cost to replace the bathroom floor. At any rate, I eventually did finish the book during my high school years, and came to realize that it was one of his best novels. Listening to it on tape some 25 years later was an amazing experience. Over the years I came to remember that inferior TV movie more than I had the novel, so a lot of the details were new to me once again. I would recommend listening to this novel to anybody who has time to kill and enjoys a great horror story.

    I wanted to get through the book before I'd watch the movie remake, and I have to say my expectations are pretty high now!I've seen the Tim Curry version, and it was of course pretty good, but I feel like they left out a lot from the book or the acting was dry at parts. The narrator made this book come to life even more than it would with just me reading it, great job and definitely a page turner! <3

    Absolutely riveting. I literally feel like the pages are clumps of popcorn I can rip through, for hours while watching an addictive Netflix binge.
