To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part. A good place to live. It was the children who saw - and felt - what made Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes IT reached up, seizing, tearing, killing ...The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of IT was deep-buried, wrapped in forgetfulness. Until they were called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

First edition. Thick octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by Stephen King on the half title page, "To Ray-with best wishes, Stephen King 2/14/88." An excellent near fine example with some foxing to the topedge in a fine dust jacket. Moving back and forth between 1958 and 1985, the story tells of seven children in a small Maine town who discover the source of a series of horrifying murders. Having conquered the evil force once, they are summoned together 27 years later when the cycle begins again. The novel won the British Fantasy Award in 1987, and received nominations for the Locus and World Fantasy Awards that same year. It was the best-selling book in the United States in 1986.
One of the best of King's efforts in the Horror genre. Creepy clown hijinks, dead children, all the stuff that gives us nightmares.

IT is one of Stephen kings scariest books. It might be a little lengthy, but it is definitely worth it. I lost some sleep for 2 reasons. 1:It was incredibley scary and frightening. 2.It was so good, I didn't want to stop reading until I finished it! I highly recommend it.

don't be daunted by the size
Although this book is truly immense in size, it's utterly worth carrying around such a brick. It's truly scary in a way that very few writers can achieve and it plays on all kinds of fears. Unfortunately, the film version ruined the ending so a lot of people have low expectations from it, but this book is really a great feat of modern literature.
