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.Read Less
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.

Scariest Thing I've Ever Read!
I came into this book attempting to overcome my fear of clowns... it didn't work! This was however one of the most excellent horror stories I have ever read. The series of flashbacks and flash-forwards provide for a growing terror in the pit of your stomach as the kids and adults move closer to the final confrontation. And that confrontation does not fail to terrify! Good luck!
