It | Stephen King

A "Something Wicked This Way Comes" post reminded me how much I like "kids on bikes vs. supernatural evil" books. I've read "It", of course, "Summer of Night", "Boy's Life", "Shadowshow" by Brad Strickland, and Thomas Tessier's "Phantom". I'm also familiar with (but haven't read) Brain Keene's "Ghoul". Anyone know of any more I can add to this list?

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 not sure I ever read a book so thick. Starting my relaxing Monday evening!

"If you go exploring Mansion Derry, you'll find all sorts of things. Yes. You may be sorry later but you'll find them, and once a thing is found it can't be unfound, can it?"

Need a strong drink after powering through the remainder of the book this afternoon. I can only see Plath obsessives reading this - it‘s very long, detailed and some very academic sections of poetry crit.
I get to the last 2 weeks of her life every time and want to shout stop! People help her. I hope every time the ending is different 🥲
The book doesn‘t reveal any massive new insights, but there are some details for us obsessives. 👇🏻

TrishB The older I get, the more sympathy I have for her mum. Ted will never have my sympathy, his lies and cheating are a step too far. His poetry is brilliant. Olwyn Hughes I have a marked dislike for. Assia also didn‘t deserve to die obviously, but she was not a nice person either. Tellingly, Sylvia‘s brother still plays no part in this one. There are still sealed files to be opened on the death of Hughes second wife. (edited) 2y
JennyM I wonder what other revelations will be revealed when those files are opened. Great review, Trish ❤️ 2y
Megabooks Fantastic review!! 2y

BarbaraBB Fab review. Now I want to read it too. 2y
TrishB @JennyM apparently a set of letters sent to Seamus Heaney, not sure if there‘s other things - the box is apparently not indexed. (Which I don‘t believe for a second as it‘s in a university library research section!). Hopefully we shall see. 2y
TrishB @BarbaraBB 👍🏻 I would recommend having a few spare days. 2y
batsy Sounds great. The blend of autobiography and lit crit will be interesting. Fantastic review! Every time we hope it ends differently for her... 💔 2y
Centique Wow This sounds wonderful. Here are the Plath obsessives putting up their hands 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ #it-me right @batsy ? 2y
TrishB @Centique hope you get to it soon 😘 2y

Hi friends, a reminder from your friendly neighborhood software engineer:

1. Change your password on netgalley as well as on any other sites where you used that password

2. Consider using a password manager (I like lastpass) to make this process easier in the future

3. Consider using a service like haveibeenpwned.com to get alerted when your email shows up in a data breach. Many sites don't alert users as quickly as netgalley did.

#netgalley

sebrittainclark I'm honestly super impressed by how netgalley has handled this breach. Sending an email two days after a breach happened and immediately implementing security measures basically never happens. 2y
j9brown Thanks for the tips. I tend to use the same handful of passwords even though I know I shouldn't. I wish more sites did the two-step authentication. 2y
bookishcow I never used this website but these are great tips in keeping your passwords safe. I created a password generator using Python that mixes up some letters numbers and symbols to make it secure 2y
BookwormM Great hints thanks for sharing 2y
CoffeeK8 Thanks for sharing 2y
