Description

It: Chapter Two—now a major motion picture!

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).

    just never loses its suspense, poignancy, or triumph. How many times have I read and reread this book? Give it a few years, pick it back up again, and I’m lost. I need a bike.

    Saw the movie before I read the book so kind of took away for the suspense but I love how the book goes so much more into detail and background information. The movies had me confused on was “IT” actually was but the book helped clear it up for me . Overall great book

    It’s so much better than you think. So much scarier than you think. It’s undeniable.

    I re-read It every few years. It’s like picking up an old friend. It is certainly about horror but it is more about childhood, friendship, and the power of both of those things. It awakens the reader to the everyday evil, as well as good, that exists in humanity but sometimes seems especially prevalent in small rural towns. Having read most of King’s work, I’ll say this is undoubtedly my all time favorite. I’m always sad to reach the end, and that feeling of melancholy nostalgia tends to stick with me for awhile, like it does when I remember my own childhood childhood.
