Very good. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. Audience: General/trade. Stephen King s terrifying, classic #1 New York Times bestseller, a landmark in American literature (Chicago Sun-Times) 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).
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.
