Publisher's Summary

They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

©1987 Stephen King (P)2010 Penguin

What the Critics Say

"The amazingly prolific King returns to pure horror, pitting good against evil as in The Stand and The Shining. Moving back and forth between 1958 and 1985, the story tells of seven children in a small Maine town who discover the source of a series of horrifying murders. Having conquered the evil force once, they are summoned together 27 years later when the cycle begins again. As usual, the requisite thrills are in abundance." (Library Journal)

    Story
    "Better with age!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of It to be better than the print version?

    Yep! Although the print version made a big impression on me when I read it 24 years ago.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of the characters at two different points in time.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Weber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only as an actor-and he's a GREAT actor


    If you could take any character from It out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Richie Tozier. I think he would keep me laughing.


    Any additional comments?

    Steven Weber brought these characters and all of the peripheral characters to life. He doesn't just read the book, he acts it. The characters breathe.

    "Steve Weber is King!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anytime.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    He was extraordinary. As an actor, a reader, a performer... Listen, I liked this story since it's release many years ago, and was afraid that the narrating wouldn't be up to the level of the voices in my head. Steve exceeded every hope.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry, yes. Cringe (when I should have), yes. Want more Steve in good books, yes.

    "Great King novel, great narration!"

    I know It is an older story, and I tried to forget the awful movie, and decided to give this a listen, wanting something lengthy. The story is great! Lots of details, as I love and expect from King, and the narration by Steven Weber was just amazing. I recognized all the characters from their "voices", and found it all convincing. Kudos to both.

    "Great value and wonderful narration"
    What made the experience of listening to It the most enjoyable?

    I think Steven Weber does justice to this novel. He makes the characters and setting come alive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stephen King is at his best with It. His turn of phrase and skill is apparent throughout despite the rather strange (stranger than Stephen King can be!) ending.

    Story
    "Derry is Scary!"

    I've known and read a handful of SK books over the decades, but had never become a fan until recently. While the book format seemed daunting, the audiobook was an immense pleasure to listen to, scary as it was (tho books don't scare me easily...no nightmares here). I also recently have begun to understand the connections between Mr King's characters and other books to each other and his "nod" to the constant reader.

    Steven King can certainly write a whirlwind of a story, but Steven Weber brings that story to LIFE! OMG is he good! I didn't even realize he is the actor Steven Weber until after I listened to the book and was well into TommyKnockers. He was brilliant, bringing each characters personality through. In the 5 years I've been a member of Audible.com, there have been a few standout narrators. Steven is one of them. This book gets a complete and total 5 stars from me.

    "One of King's best written is his best audio!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of It to be better than the print version?

    Yes and no. There is nothing like reading this book for the first time. I was 13 when I first read it for the first time, and I couldn't put it down. When I listened to the audio version for the first time, Steven Webber brought be back to that exact same place. Since first getting this version, I've listened to it 4 times. One of the best.

    Story
    "As good as I remembered"
    Where does It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is in the top 2 of my audiobooks.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It?

    I found the part when the kids are reunited as adults very interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Weber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Steven Weber's other performances, but I will be. His narration was great.


    If you could rename It, what would you call it?

    I would never try to rename a book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book/audio book is totally engaging, but not for the faint of heart.

    incredible performance/story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Steven Weber does more King. In fact, when they do The Stand, I hope its Steven Weber who does it, he will do it justice!!

    "Book is Great... Narrater EVEN BETTER!"

    This is one of King's best! The Narrater really brought this one to life! My next pick is a Koontz book by the same narrater, Never read a Koontz book, but thie narrater is one good reason for me to get one and see how good they are!

    Story
    "Not to bad."
    Would you consider the audio edition of It to be better than the print version?

    I would really rate the movie ahead of this in a lot of ways. Mostly because there are no unnecessary sex scenes in the movie like there is in this. Yes there is a sec scene between the kids that really shouldn't be in there. However it is really cool to hear all the back story about Dery and find out all the things that IT did over the centuries.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The back story.


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

    All of them.
