It | Stephen King
A landmark in American literature (Chicago Sun-Times)Stephen Kings #1 national bestseller about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagersan evil without a name: It.Welcome to Derry, Maine. Its 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 citys 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 Derrys 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 Kings most mature work (St. Petersburg Times), It will overwhelm you to be read in a well-lit room only (Los Angeles Times).

It's strange that even though I had some issues with IT, I feel in the mood for another Stephen King pretty soon... I think it's because I was so immersed.

Any ideas @vivastory @TrishB ?? I've heard Salem's Lot & Misery are pretty good. I've already read The Shining &The Bachman Books.

TrishB Both of those are good choices, Salem‘s Lot is horror, Misery isn‘t. I would also highly recommend Needful Things. 1mo
TrishB Also Dr Sleep as the follow up to The Shining. 1mo
vivastory Salem's Lot is firmly in my top 5 King books. The atmosphere in it is fantastic. Highly recommend. I haven't read Misery yet. Shining is great too. 1mo
See All 12 Comments
vivastory Oops, I see you read The Shining. I also really like his short stories, esp Night Shift. It has the stories that are the basis for countless adaptations “Children of the Corn,“ the original story for Salem's Lot before it was a novel, “Sometimes they Come Back,“
Trucks“ (which is the basis for one of my fave so bad its good movies of all time: Maximum Overdrive) & the stories that are in “Cat's Eye“
(edited) 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @TrishB @vivastory Thank you both 😊 Next time I am in Waterstones, I'll pick myself up a copy of Salem's Lot! I don't read many short stories, but I'll give them a look too and I'll have to look up Needful Things (not heard of it before.) I loved The Shining book (I seem to be the only person in the world who hates the film 😅😅) 1mo
vivastory @RaeLovesToRead The movie is one of my favorites, but I know a lot of people really dislike it too 1mo
TrishB Not a lover of the film. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory @TrishB Everyone I speak to seems to love it 😄 1mo
DaveGreen7777 You might try “The Talisman”. It‘s more of a dark fantasy novel than horror, so it‘s a bit of a different flavor from him. One of my favorite novels by King (although he did co-write it with another author)! 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 Ooh, another Stephen King book I haven't heard of! I will have a look 😊 I was supposed to not be buying more fantasy books, haha. I have *ahem* rather a lot still to read 😳 1mo

Until the last few hundred pages, IT was a cinematic masterpiece of storytelling. The sinister clown antics and malice of Derry were stunningly rendered and brought layers and layers of story to life.

I was expecting it to dovetail to a harmonious conclusion, but unfortunately the ending dragged and dragged. And then it hit a bum note that completed my irritation so thoroughly that I came away with a negative impression of the whole experience.

Soubhiville Unfortunately King‘s endings usually are lacking for me too. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I could probably have forgiven the tedious ending if King hadn't made the only 11 year old girl have sex with all 6 of her friends in the sewers. And then one of the boys remembers the way out! 1mo
RaeLovesToRead Throughout the whole book she's brutalised and sexualised and then at the end she's like "I know what we need to do! Who's first?" It's so tenderly and earnestly written, it's like King doesn't see a problem with this as a plot point. 1mo
See All 14 Comments
RaeLovesToRead @Soubhiville I was writing a rant about the ending for Goodreads, but in the end I just copied and pasted my Litsy review. See above for further comment if you have read the book. (Very spoilery if you haven't!) 1mo
Soubhiville I first read this when I was maybe 14 or 15 and absolutely loved it. Except the end, but adult me couldn‘t remember why. I reread it as a early 40‘s adult, and had entirely blocked that scene out of my memory. Wonder why 🙄. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @Soubhiville Using sex to progress a plot is something I find rather galling. The fact that they were pre-pubescent makes it so much worse!! I stopped reading The Demi-Monde series because every time they got into a sticky situation one of the women would be like "I'll distract the bad guys with my boobs!" ?? 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yes! The kiddie gang bang to save the world ruined it for me. Like WTF, why? Men though, that's why. I can read and get on board with a lot of messed up stuff, but that just didn't even make sense. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I don't mind taboo subjects in books either, but in this case it was just so unnecessary! Beverly was the groups sharpshooter... she should have had a central role in taking down the monster... but nope. And then after the sex one of the boys is like... "ahhhh we should have taken a left back there..." What the actual hell?! ?? 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I initially gave it 3 stars, but I've upped it to 4 because there was still much to admire. Sometimes I just don't know how to rate a book. 1mo
DaveGreen7777 This is exactly how I felt! I was enthralled by the story thru the 1,000 page build-up (other than that really icky moment… WTF King?!?), but the final battle was such a let-down, to the point where it almost felt like parody! Grand finale… more like BLAND finale, am I right?! 🤦🏻‍♂️ (edited) 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 Oh my days, bland finale.... 🤣🤣🤣 You can't see me, but I am making a face that looks like this ---> 🤨🤨🤨 haha. Which was pretty much the same face I made during THAT scene. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 Have you played final fantasy 8??... final boss battle was a little like a Tonberry attack... *shuffle shuffle shuffle* *shuffle shuffle shuffle* *doink* (If you haven't then you won't have the foggiest what I'm on about, sorry!) 😆 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead BWAH-HA-HA!!! I wish I could see the 🤨 look! 😂🤣 I did start FFVIII, but I didn‘t get very far into it, I‘m afraid! 🙈 1mo

I feel the same about the last few hundred pages of IT as I did about Series 8 of Game of Thrones... IT was so close to being a masterpiece and I'm going to have to get my irritation in check before I can give it a fair review.

Faultless in its portrayal of pre-teen fears, imagination and nightmares. The scenes where the Losers are terrorised by Henry Bowers and co were as scary as their encounters with IT. Felt like it lost its way a little towards the end with desire taking centre stage. Can sort of get why King included the sex scene in the sewers but it was uncomfortable to read and jarred with the horror. Overall, though, a compelling read #StephenKing

As promised, here is my King ranking. This includes books 1-15 & are ranked horizontally from left to right starting at the top row. I broke the series down for this ranking, a ranking including series in place of individual book entries would look diff. I still have at least half of his bibliography to read. Will any of these TBR knock out any on my top 6? I'm doubtful, but we'll see! Fellow Constant Readers, what are your fave King books?

RaeLovesToRead I've not read many, but I loved The Shining and The Long Walk. 4mo

vivastory @RaeLovesToRead I have a great reading memory associated with IT I took several days off from work a month before chapter 1 released in '17 & basically all I did for 3 days was read. I'd surface long enough to grab nourishment & then I'd dive right back in. I had a massive book hangover afterwards. (edited) 4mo
vivastory @TrishB I think I'll make it my final King book of the year. I was planning on reading at least one more big one by him this year 4mo
RaeLovesToRead @TrishB @vivastory Now I HAVE to read it! 😄 (not that I'm impressionable / easily persuaded, haha) 4mo
TrishB Make sure you tag me in your review 😁 like you, sometimes it‘s the circumstances of reading the book add to the overall impression. Books read in my teens make a way over the top impression to more recent ones. 4mo
vivastory @TrishB I will def. tag you 🙂I find with his bigger books I def get a lot more out of them when I can read them in uninterrupted chunks of time (weekends, vacation etc) 4mo
Reggie Salem‘s Lot is #1 for me. But Desperation is up there and because he‘s one of the 3 who started my love of the short horror story, I have to put Nightmares and Dreamscapes up there, because Crouch End still terrifies me thinking about it. 4mo
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie this would be a good one for u to chime in on. 4mo
vivastory @Reggie I thought about reading Nightmares and Dreamscapes as my next King since I was planning on reading a story collection, but I think I might wait. I just noticed there was an adaptation of some of the stories (including Crouch End) on TNT of all places... 4mo
Reggie Yeah, lol, they‘re like 15 years old. And to be honest none of them really held up any of the stories they were meant to portray. Although, I was glad to see Claire Forlani in something else since Meet Joe Black. (She plays the wife in Crouch End.) 4mo
vivastory @Reggie She's great! I really liked her in Basquiat. I wish she would be cast more 4mo
Addison_Reads Salem's Lot, The Long Walk, Dolores Claiborne, Night Shift, and Needful Things are my top 5 right now, but on any given day those could change. 😀 4mo

BookwormAHN It, The Shining, The Dead Zone, The Long Walk and Pet Sematery are my present top 5 but Needful Things isn't far behind. 4mo
Addison_Reads @vivastory based on other books we both equally love, I really think you'll enjoy Needful Things as much as @TrishB and I do. I might need to do a reread of it now that we've talked about it. It's been like 9 years since I read it. 4mo

A classic King horror novel. Town kids are terrorized by a demon clown (Pennywise), they form a powerful friendship, all are outcasts and attempting to survive IT. As they join together to survive as kids, they soon learn IT is back 30 years later. Having to uphold a promise made as children, they all return to their hometown to defeat IT one last time.

I have been told over and over I need to read this book, I am going to love it, I don‘t know what I am missing… Well I read it…. I did not love it, and now I know what I was missing, not much. This book was super long and so much could have been left out or shortened, in my opinion. Also, I didn‘t find it as scary as I was hoping, it grossed me out more than scare me. It had very good parts, but over all it wasn‘t my favorite King story.

I am a huge King fan, he is my favorite author. Enjoying this classic creepy tale. Is it Halloween yet?

971 pages. It is an almost bail. While intriguing for a bit less than a half, I soon found myself flipping through pages without much interest. I might have had huge expectations for the book. I wanted horrors and this... was just misterious. Good writing but somewhat dissappointing plot.

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it. Some will be old, some will be new - don't judge me, I have a lot of books.

Day 51th

Join the fun if you want!
