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)

    "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.

    "Childhood Fears and friends"

    King's best work in my opinion. This is the story of childhood. the story of the friends we have as children and the fears we have as children, but this is also the story of Evil. What if there really is something to fear in the dark what if something does go bump in the night? What if it doesnt go away just because we grow up? 7 friends face an unspeaker evil in thier childhood. They face what Haunts the Town of Derry. They see the true face of IT and then have to face it again as adults.
    This book has stuck with me more then any other book I have ever read. This book has haunted my dreams. For weeks after reading this book for the first time my dreams would return to the thoughts and images this book brought me. I would long for the friendship the characters shared and I tremble at the horrors they faced. To this day all my nightmares flow into a Clown with silver dollar eyes, razor teeth and pom pom buttons

    "Fantastic narration, excellent story"

    Firstly, Steven Webber is incredible, one of the best narrators I've come across in my life. He brings the book to life and I just wish he narrates more Stephen King. Steven - please do "The Stand"!

    Secondly, this is one of King's best novels. The horrible movie made never did this book justice. King manages to keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved every second and can recommend this to any Stephen King fan - you will not be disappointed.

    "Don't waste your time with this."

    I loved Weber when he narrated The Shining and he does a fine job here as well but each character King writes seems to lie flat and be very one sided, except for the character "It". At first I was endeared to Bill's stuttering but then it just becomes annoying once you get to part 4 (not sure if that is Weber's fault or King's), the kid Richie I would like to see killed off by part 2 because his "sense of humor" is plan idiotic and won't shut up. Also, King has a way of going off on these tangential storylines that do nothing to embellish or enhance the story. I made it only half way thru part 4 and gave up.

    "One of Stephen's few mistakes"

    I really forgot how bad this book is. I Love Stephen King but I must say this is THE worst book he has ever written. (Although I am not a fan of the "Dark Tower" series either...but George Guidall reads those and you can't get better than that!) It has some of the really great touches that all of King's writing has but... it really sucks! It's a lot of material for one credit but.... it's still not worth it! No disrespect to Stephen Weber as the Narrator.

    "1st time I felt a need to review an audio book"

    Steven Weber is so good you forget it's an audio book and just fall in. Brought back all of the magic of reading this book for the first time. I didn't think a long book could translate so well to this medium. Highly recommended!

    Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."

    "Long book - great narrator"

    This book was very good - dragged in places but it was a solid 4...I'd like to give it a 5 just for Steven Weber. That man is AWESOME at narrating books. I'd spend a credit to hear him narrate the phone book!

    "Bravo!!"

    This is a great combination of a terrific story and a terrific narrator. IT follows parallel story arcs with the same group of people - first as 11/12 year olds and then 27 years later as adults. This is a great storytelling device King has used previously and it is put to very good use here.

    On a personal note it was very effective as I read IT the first time over 20 years ago when I was 14 or 15 and I loved it then. Re-"reading" it now as an adult was fascinating as I empathized more with the adults in the story than the kids, but it was great fun both times.

    This is one of my favorite books of all time - very scary but King puts in plenty of laughs throughout to keep it moving along. Frankly the biggest surprise in the audio version is what a great narrator Steven Weber is. It brought the book to life in a way I didn't think possible.

    Definitely not for children or the faint of heart, but do listen and you will not be disappointed!
