Publisher's Summary

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)

    "Wonderful Narrator!"

    If you're familiar with King and the awkwardly uneven miniseries from the early 90s based on this book (excellent first half complete fail in the second, what does it say when the child cast outshines the adults?) then you won't be in for too many surprises at the length, depth,and breadth of this book.

    Now, onto the EXCELLENT narration. Steven Weber (Wings,Jeffrey, Etc) is an incredibly skilled and versatile narrator.Each character has their very own voice, he handles a main character that stutters with skill and precision,another character is known for doing imitations and impersonations and again Weber handles these scenes brilliantly. Another point in which he shines are the female characters, unlike some narrators he has a versatile and authentic array of feminine styled voices rather than one squeaking attempt that he trots out again and again.

    If you enjoy King's books then you'll absolutely LOVE this audiobook.

    "My best listen to date."

    I was hesitant to listen to this book because I had already seen the movie but the reviews were so good that I decided to get it and I am so glad I did. As always the book was better than the movie and this was a good movie. Steven Weber is an absolutely phenomenal reader. As anyone who has read Mr. King knows, he can develop characters like nobody's business and Mr. Weber brought them to life with his heartfelt and emotional reading. Whatever the appropriate audible phrase is for page-turner, this qualifies as one. I have been listening to books for years and choose books by author and reader. I have added Weber to the top of my list. And although this book is long, I found myself sad when it was nearing the end. I have only one question, when can we expect The Stand read by Steven Weber?

    "one of the best!!"

    I've listened to almost all of Mr. Kings audiobooks, and I gotta say this is in my top 2. Steven Webers' reading of It, was in my opinion flawless. All the characters were brought to life, and were spot on. If there's ever a 3rd Talisman audiobook, I vote for Mr. Weber to narrate it. This was the first audiobook I listened to back to back. Its really that good :)

    "Great Book ... OUTSTANDING Narration!"

    I was a little hesitant in purchasing this audio book because it was by far the longest audio book I've ever committed to. But I'm glad that I did ... Steven Weber made IT come alive in a way that I hadn't experienced before.

    I read IT back in 1990 ... and again in 2001 ... but having Steven Weber read this book to me was more enjoyable than my previous two times reading the novel on my own.

    It's true that Weber yells and screams while reading this book ... but I didn't mind that at all. You could tell that he was excited about the story. You could feel his excitement ... and I became infected with Weber's excitement. One of the other reviewers compared Weber's style to telling a spooky story around the campfire ... and I agree with that comparison.

    My only complaint about Weber is that it became a little difficult to distinguish the seven main characters in the story ... they all started to sound alike to me. For example, if two or more of the characters began to speak back-and-forth, I sometimes got confused as to who was saying what. However, it doesn't happen too often and it didn't ruin the story for me.

    I completed listening to IT — all 44 hours of IT — about 10 days after purchasing IT ... that's how good IT is!

    "Stephen Kings Best"

    I was waiting forever for this one to come to Audible. Finally !
    I like stories that let the characters develop, major plots within plots, this one does it all. The storyline goes back and forth over the time period of the characters, suspense is everywhere, evil in the most base of things: Anything that scared you as a kid, that is how the evil presents itself. A Classic Nightmare written with solid skill.

    "Wow! First-Rate King and a Perfect Narrator"

    I enjoyed this tremendously. It's a disturbing book that gets into some very weird areas, but I have to be prepared for that in unpredictable horror. The braided story-lines pull together to compel the reader/listener deeper and deeper into this cosmic mystery. IT is a good, long, character-driven story, deftly crafted and wonderfully performed by Steven Weber.

    "good, not great."

    im a huge king fan. i had high hopes for this one. it was long, but honestly worth the money at least. the narator was excellent. the story gets way weird and borders on child porn toward the end... i suggest a strong stomach and an open mind.

    "Best King audit yet!"

    I read "It" when it first came out in hardback and I just loved it. The bond between these friends and the horrors they faced alone and together could only have come from the imagination of Stephen King. And I have to say Steven Weber really brought this awesome story to life. The characters transitioned flawlessly and he was really committed to making this wonderful book one that I will want to listen to again. Keep reading, Steven Weber, because you are great!

    "More Steven Weber!"

    Quite possibly the best reading of any audiobook I have experienced so far! It's a long story - but Steven Weber brings it to life like no other narrator. He is fully committed to the roles of the characters - of which there are many. He doesn't just read the book, he give the characters a dimension so realistic, you half expect to meet them in person someday.
