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)

    "My favorite book to listen to."

    I have ADHD and its vary hard to find a book that will keep my attention. But the I couldn't stop listening to this book. The narrator did a great job I could tell who was talking. I was in suspicious the whole time. but my favorite thing thou is how King used the dental in imagery for the evil creature for each of the protagonists. I defiantly recommend this book.

    "Great book, excellent narrator!"

    I'm fairly new to Stephen King. I've read Talisman, Tommyknockers, and now just finished IT. Of the three, I enjoyed IT the most. The toughest thing I've encountered with King's writing, though, is that in the middle of what may seem to be a typical stretch of pros, he'll abruptly insert the most awkward and crudest... I don't know, stuff. Since I happen to be listening to an audio book, I've found myself checking that my headphones are working properly so no one around me will wonder what in the world I'm listening to. Beyond that (and, maybe others aren't as bothered by it as I am), I think King is great.

    I have to say, too, that the narrator, Steven Weber, is phenomenal. It's worth listening to this book if only to catch his performance. I have my favorite narrators – Jim Dale (Harry Potter), Michael Kramer, Kate Reading, Edward Hermann, and others, but Weber took narration to a new level. I found myself shaking my head at how good he is. The voice of Pennywise was excellent, as were the many voices of Richie Tozier. Kudos!

    "Highly recomended"

    Steven Weber is a fantastic narrator. Makes the book even more gripping then to simply read the novel yourself. A must have for any audible customer who is a stephen king lover.

    "Steven Weber is amazing!"

    Best narrator of any audiobook, ever! Especially given the wealth of characters and complexity of subject matter. (And, the book was good, too!)

    "IT"

    This book was read and performed by Steven Weber. I thought Mr Weber made an already good book
    better. I was dearly sorry that it was over and I will read it again.

    "Great Narrator Great book!"

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Steven Weber as narrator. I don't know how he does it... but he just makes sense and does a compelling job with this horrifying book. Stephen King's best that I've read. Compared to his newer books - this one is in the old style of King... ruthless, vulgar - and SCARY. Masterpiece.

    "'Classic King'"

    I grew up reading Stephen King. A smuggled book hidden under the covers at night, flashlight often winking out at the worst possible moment...his novels filled a young girls head with morbid but insatiable fascination. On the mornings following a 'King fix', I couldn't wait to dress and get outside, yet his words haunted me and followed me unrelenting into the daylight hours.
    God I love that man and his 'scare the shit' out of you tales!
    'It' put me off clowns forever! Devilishly creepy and dark, murder, mystery and ancient evil, heroes that must eventually win the day or else! One of the master's BEST and most memorable works.
    A fabulous, artful narration by the wickedly talented Steven Weber, -thanks Steven, now my horror has a voice as well!

    "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.
