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.

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)

    "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.

    "SITTING ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT"
    Where does It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I READ this book way back when it first came out and though it was over 25 years ago I still remembered that I loved it. I needed a long book so I decided to listen to it. I absolutely love the narration. Steven does a fabulous job. I couldn't wait to put on my headphones on each day. Worth every penny or credit you use to purchase.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    I loved how he was able to bring life to the words. When "It" came out my heart started racing as if I was in the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this every chance that I got. If I had 34 hours to spare all in one sitting I would have definately listened to it in one sitting. This is a great book if you have a long drive or flight or your stuck in bed for medical reasons.

    "Stephen King at His Best"

    This is by far the greatest Stephen King book ever. Steven Weber really makes the reading come to life by voicing all of the characters. This is how every book should be narrated. Well done Mr. Weber. The only critique I have on the narration is with "Stuttering Bill". It just wears you out after a while because it goes on for about 45 hours. We get the point. Bill studders. Mr. Weber could have easily conveyed that by studdering the first word or two of each sentence rather than e,e,e,v,v,very s,s,syll a,a,able o,o,of e,e,e,v,v,very w,w,word. That part became painful to listen to. The other thing I found annoying was his adding the chapter numbers to the reading. That is the fault of Steven King's not finishing a chapter with a complete sentence or thought, starting a new chapter with with the word that should have ended the previous chapter. These are things you can ignore while reading the book, but have to suffer through when listening to it being read to you. Do not hesitate to purchase this book. I waited a long time for it to come out and I will listen to it many times. This book should be listened to only late at night in the dark.

    "Pitch-perfect reading"

    This story is a long-time favorite --- read a few times over the decades, but I was surprised to discover how the exceptional narration of Steven Weber gave me a whole new experience of the story. I'm inclined to say his is the best narration I've heard in nearly 100 audiobooks (both fiction and non), and his voice characterization is fearless.

    I've written this, my first and only review, to say that Steven Weber should be contracted --- and paid anything he asks --- to read The Stand.

    "Flawless Narration and a mostly engrossing tale"

    There are enough reviews of this book that I don't need to cover the synopsis, if you buy this book, you know what you are getting into. The narration is spectacular, Steven Weber does an amazing job of bringing each character to life and I can't imagine how it could be improved.

    For the most part I also enjoyed the story. I will say that one section of the story takes Stephen King's tendency for sexual content far enough that for me personally I regret reading the book. I am not particularly prudish and haven't had a problem with his other books and their content but without giving away plot points, if you have reservations about sexually explicit material then I would pick another title. If not, enjoy a fantastically imaginative and supremely well read novel.

    "Wonderful Audiobook!"

    This book was an absolute joy to listen to. The narrator was extremely clear and easy to understand, and his different voices and tones made the book very interesting and captivating. "It" scared the pee out of me and is my new favorite Stephen King book.

    "Great book. Possibly the best reader ever."

    There are 2 books that are on my standing wish list for audible.com. IT and The Stand. I commute for over 2 hours each day and like a substantial book. I somehow missed when IT was released on Audible, but downloaded it this month and it is amazing. Over 40 hours of material, (a little too much background in some cases), but it has been so long since I read this book that it was brand new to me and absolutely riveting the way it unfolds between what happened in the past and the present (1985). But the most amazing part is Steven Weber as the reader. I didn't know what to think going in knowing him from Wings and The Shining remake. But, I must say that he is possibly the best reader I have experience in the 250 books I have listened to. I put him even ahead of the standards - Scott Brick and Frank Muller. I would love to see the Stand come to life with him as the narrator. If you like classic Stephen King and you have the time to commit to an epic novel of this size, you will not be disappointed.

    "We all float down here, Georgie..."

    This story is my all time favourite work by King - gory, get-inside-your-head-and-stay-there-for-weeks disturbing, and somehow all at the same time heart wrenchingly tender. The small town of Derry is a character in itself, and it is brought to life just as vividly as are the young protagonists.

    Added to this is the fact that the narrator is OUTSTANDING. He reads with an upbeat pace that echoes the ever-growing tension in the book without sounding rushed, and captures voices and subtle mannerisms without making caricatures of the children or other 'eccentric' adults (as has happened in a more recent King audiobook endeavour - Under the Dome).

    At 44 hours long, it is a little daunting, but the story moves so naturally, you don't even notice. If you're wavering on this book as a purchase, take the plunge - you won't be sorry.....until you turn out the lights.
