It (Library) | Stephen King
From master storyteller Stephen King comes his classic #1 New York Times bestseller! Can an entire city be haunted? The Losers Club of 1958 seems to think so. After all, when they were teenagers back then, these seven friends who called the small New England metropolis of Derry their home had first-hand experience with what made this place so horribly different. Every twenty-seven years, something that has existed here for a very long time comes back to terrorize Derry, lurking in the city storm drains and sewers, taking the shape of every nightmare and deepest dread. And yet, time passed and the children grew up, moved away...the horror of what they all experienced buried deep, wrapped in forgetfulness. Now nearly thirty years later, they re all being called back to Derry for a final life-or-death confrontation with a primordial evil that stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories. For the Losers Club and the thing known only as It have some unfinished business with each other ."

Love this book. I had forgotten that the Turtle makes an appearance and has a speaking gig. Loved the way the book chronicled them as children and as adults at the same time, so you never knew how it ended until the end. Very surprised about the sex with the group as YA's. A few references to Dark Tower thrown in.

I‘m not usually much of a horror fan, but I love Stephen King‘s books. “It” is one of my favorites. It‘s a twentieth century classic, as far as I‘m concerned. A well thought out and intricate plot with fully realized three dimensional characters and a town cursed with a murderous clown of murky origin all combine to make one spellbinding, unforgettable novel. As good as the movie and TV adaptations have been, the novel is so much better. Read it.

I thought about something today. If Stephen King never wrote IT, would clowns be creepy or scary to anyone?

It's amazing how influential an author can be when they use their words the right (or maybe wrong) way.

vivastory I think they would still be a little creepy, but I know my generation owes a massive debt to the Tim Curry portrayal for our Coulrophobia 🎈🎈🎈 6d
KennethTolesJr @vivastory I'm right there with you. Lol. That first IT movie put the fear in me. And it's hard for me to explain because I don't really call it fear usually. I usually just say they're creepy. They don't scare to where I go into fight or flight mode. Just weird. Lol 6d
Sweetkokoro I believe the fear would still be there. My older sister has a fear of clowns that started when she was around 5 so her fear was never connected to IT. Now that she is older she explains it as “anyone can be under that face paint, a normal person or a killer and thats just scary” She says its fear plus creepy all rolled into one. 6d
KennethTolesJr @Sweetkokoro I understand that totally. That's a very valid point. Most people that I talk about that have a fear of clowns usually credit at least part of it to King. Interesting to hear about someone who doesn't relate the fear to IT at all. 6d
SW-T Never liked clowns. IT just confirmed other people found them creepy. 6d

I liked this book a lot. I enjoy Stephen King‘s books. The only critique I have is he tends to get wordy and this book was no exception. It didn‘t take away from my enjoyment of the book however.

Narrated by Steven Webber, who has a great voice for narrating. I have never read King before, seen many of his films. I enjoy the disjointed story telling if IT. It makes you really question what Pennywise is, and how each of the Losers Club relates to the story.

📚 7.5/7. Mainly cuz of the three graphic novels/comics I quickly read this week. Will have reviews of those going up over the course of the weekend. All the halves are because I‘m a stickler for accuracy.
🏊🏻‍♀️ 19944m/18000m. If I‘d realized how close I was to 20000m I would‘ve given myself an extra push today. The bizarre total is due to swimming in a 25yd pool and converting to metres.

As predicted, I did NOT manage to read for 24 hours this weekend. Too much non-reading relaxation was involved. However, I finished A Song for Arbonne (review later) and made big dents in both An American Tragedy and It. (Yes, these are three VERY different books.)

Heading to bed now to read for another half hour before sleep.

I mentioned last week that I was attending my sister‘s wedding. It was great and a beautiful day ...and totally derailed all my reading and fitness plans. I‘m finally getting back on track this weekend.

📚 I‘m waaay behind with my reading and am sticking with my seven book goal for now, even though I‘m at 2/7. Will revisit this next week.

I was lucky to have won a competition which earned me this.

Being a big fan of Stephen King, I had never quite read this book because I had seen the movies long before I knew there were books.
This man has a very vivid imagination
Some people may not like his style, others worship the ground he walks on.
For me I find his writing style intriguing and definitely what I like to read on a quiet day when I have no children wanting me every 5 seconds.

I will never understand why editors don‘t take the red pen to Stephen King. BEEP BEEP, STEPHEN! Seriously, the concept and structure of the book is brilliant. It‘s the only reason I‘m not panning it. The most insane part is the pre-teen orgy, though.

😳😳😳😳😳😳😳WTF?!?😳😳😳😳😳😳😳

I mean...DAMN. Really? Why do so many give this book a pass, despite that? Bev is a giant, grocery list of unforgivable female character tropes.

Kimberlone Agreed about the kid orgy, I‘m glad the movie chose to edit that part. I also think the book is way overly long, but I still liked it overall. 2mo
BillBlume @Kimberlone I checked with a website for the word count: 445,134 words. His only work that‘s longer is the uncut edition of The Stand at 471,485 words. 2mo
Kimberlone @BillBlume I read the book 2 years ago and then recently listened to the audiobook with my boyfriend and it clocked in at 45 hours!!! 2mo
