The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions". A madman with a knife is trying to kill him, he's sure. And on the night May Locher died, one of the two bald men coming out of her house had a pair of scissors in his hand.
What does it all mean? Ralph doesn't quite know. But the bizarre visions he's been having keep getting more intense, the strange deaths in Derry have just begun, and Ralph knows he isn't hallucinating.
Returning to the town of Derry, Maine, the setting of one of his most critically acclaimed novels, It, Stephen King combines bone-chilling realism with supernatural terror to create yet another masterpiece of suspense.

"This is a yarn so packed with suspense, romance, literary reference, fascinating miscellaneous knowledge, and heart that only Stephen King could have written it. Marvelous - that is, full of marvels." (Booklist)
Would have rated 4 if it weren't for the misguided attempt to create a sense of the supernatural with annoying sound effects. If you want this type of experience save your money and go to a cheap movie.
Like most everyone I liked the book, and the music would not have been bad between chapters, but it didn't stop when the narration started and it make it difficult to hear sometimes, so it was a very, very bad idea. Whoever listened to it before putting this book on the market should have been shot, or at least fired :-)
I usually like Steven King, and I am sure i would have liked this too, if it didn't have music, it ruins it. I am having issues listening to the full book because of the music
I really enjoyed this story, and think it is a great companion to the Dark Tower series. It was also nice to visit Derry Maine again :)
It took me a little while to get used to the narrator, but once I did I thought he was perfect for this story.
As others have mentioned the soundtrack could be annoying and distracting but for me it didn't take too much away from the book. I would recommend this for any one who is a fan of Kings work.
I love this book. Really I do. I was so excited to get it on audiobook. I enjoyed the reading, and the book is great, but I really HATE the added weird "noise" that's added in here and there. It's clashing and unpleasant, and when wearing headphones I kept having to put the volume down when it came on. It make the reading less enjoyable and made it a definite no-go for my nightly before bed book listening.
