It | Stephen King
“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).

I enjoyed the first half of this book but but was disappointed in the monster at the end. But more than anything I was disgusted by the sex scene amongst 12 year olds near the end. What point is there in that? All the other characters have quirks that help them defeat the monster but hers is to let them all finish in her? WTF is that? They are 12!!! Sorry Steve but you lost my respect with this one.

“I‘m the Turtle, son. I made the universe, but please don‘t blame me for it; I had a belly-ache.”

So pumped for IT: chapter 2 and can't wait to see how the filmmakers portray a #SpaceOddity (Featured in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) Bill encounters in the form of Maturin, a cosmic turtle. I'm really hoping it'll be somewhat like Nolan's Interstellar on crack.

Stephen King takes you on a roller coaster of thrills and chills with “It.” I was fortunate enough to listen to the majority through the audiobook, which I highly recommend, and finished with the hardback.

In Derry, something sinister and pure evil lurks in the sewers. A group of young friends work to rid IT from their lives and make a pact if IT were to ever return, they would return together to fight. Years later, IT is back.

FIVE stars!

KathyWheeler Steven Weber does a fantastic job of narrating It. 4w

Only six hours in to this Stephen King classic - leaving almost 39 hours to go!

I love Steven Weber‘s voice for the narration, and Stephen King is leaving no character without depth thus far.

I‘ve seen both movie versions of IT, and appreciate both, definitely finding the new one a tad scarier in retrospect!

Whew! After months of picking through this almost-45-HOUR audiobook I am done! Holy crap this was an experience! Steven Weber's performance is jaw-dropping (especially in the finale) and King's prose is just as entrapping and cinematic!
Can't wait to check out the movies!

“‘Want your boat, Georgie?' Pennywise asked.

George reached.

[S]uddenly there was a ripping noise and a flaring sheet of agony, and George Denbrough knew no more.

Blood flowed into the stormdrain from the tattered hole where his left arm had been. A knob of bone, horribly bright, peeked through the torn cloth.

The boy‘s eyes stared up into the white sky [and] they began to fill with rain.”

LiterRohde @hermyknee I am so sorry. I got carried away. I escape reality with this stuff. But the last thing I want is to alienate Littens. I probably should erase the post. As far as Stephen King though, he is not all horror. There are some stories that are more supernatural and even some that are uplifting like his newest, Elevation. Sorry for the pun and the scare. 3mo

I FINISHED IT!!

Despite a couple cringeworthy chapters towards the end, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the second half of this book; I wish I‘d just audiobooked it the whole way through. Much better to listen to than to sit and read, in my opinion.

Favorite line: “The little guy puked inside his shell... choked on a galaxy or two”

This is hands down my favorite Stephen king book I've read so far, the character build up is amazing and the best I've ever seen in a book. I actually felt like the character could be real people, and I 've read this book awhile ago but I still think about derry and the characters quite often. It is lengthy like 1150 pages, but I never felt bored with it.

SailorMoon OMG what you wrote kind of makes it interesting though! I have never read it nor I have seen the movie, so I've always thought of him as just a clown! What you said makes me think he is not just that! Almost makes me wanna read it 😰🤯 3mo

SailorMoon I've only read 11/22/63 by King, the only book that doesn't reflect his style (or so I've been told!)... therefore I have no idea whether I'd like it or not, but the way you introduced it makes it sound interesting. I'll be giving it a try someday! 3mo

Speaking of book cheating...

Is it cheating if I listen to the second half of a book instead of actually reading it?

I could not, for the life of me, motivate myself to finish IT. Some parts were exciting, but the majority just dragged on and on... I do want to finish the book as it has become a sort of trophy to me at this point... but I don‘t want to sit and read it 😭

SailorMoon I think audiobooks count as much as written books, so no cheating 😉 they just don't work for me because I can't keep focused! 4mo
Stephuhhnieee @SailorMoon That is my issue! I‘ve recently attempted audiobooks again and found I pay more attention to non-fiction... and it highly depends on the narrator. This will be my 1938302 attempt at a fiction read 😂 So it might not even work. 4mo
SailorMoon @Stephuhhnieee I remember listening to them when I was in the hospital, and then I had nothing else to do or think about so I actually got what I was listening to. In general though I listen to them in the car or doing something else, so nothing sticks 😅 i like the ones narrated by more actors, they help my focus a lot more... 4mo
Stephuhhnieee @SailorMoon I struggle with ADD.. So I get the need to be fully focused 😂 I listen in the car or when there is nothing happening at work. I think nonfiction works best because it‘s typically a topic I have general knowledge on... So I can usually piece together whatever I zoned out on. And yeah! Narrated by actors helps... and for some reason if it is a male narrator it helps too. They‘re usually more calm 😂 So my brain stays calm. 4mo
