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)
good story but but I found the background music annoying and bothersome because it would overpower the voice track and made several parts very difficult to follow. This was so much the case that I very nearly quit listening entirely
Due to work and college, I've found that I don't have the time to sit down and read like I used to. I was skeptical about trying out audiobooks but not anymore. The narrator was amazing and really did the boom justice.
This book is early King, but it does set the possibility for his later books, specifically The Gunslinger. The narration by Eli Wallach is good. I would recommend this book only for the die hard King fans
Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, and a better narrator couldn't have been chosen. As the story focuses on two older folks, it's perfect that it's Brandstaetter by an older gentleman. It's all very well done and comes together nicely.
the narrator was great, the story was enjoyable but the random horrific noise they play ever little bit was awful. it was loud and grating and made the book unbearable to finish. i had to buy the written copy to finish as this was just unlistenable for me. i tried to get passed it but after 3 hours i just couldn't do it.
it was a good story. a bit slow but good character development. you learn to care for some and to dislike some.
i loved bill mcgovern. the voices were all done well and i think the narrator did a wonderful job.
the book was great! the audio version was horrible. the random noise/music was so loud i couldn't hear the narrator but i couldn't turn it up because the horrible music was too loud. it made listening to the book impossible.
i was so very highly disappointed in the audio version. the book was good and i recommend but the random noise in the audio recording made listening to this too painful to finish.
No Music. Seriously... it was absolutely obnoxious. There wouldn't be any music... then boom... some ridiculous bullshit music would start playing and scare the hell out of me. I listen to these books on my commute... when you start playing shitty music.. with weird notes... it made me think there was a cop with his siren on.
He's not bad... considering the book.
I'm guessing this was written right when King started getting sober. It was incredibly loquacious.... to the point of being irritating. If I wanted loquacious, I would have bought a Tom Clancy or Ayn Rand novel.
