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)

    "A cl cla cla classic!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of the better read Stephen king books I've listened to. I love the way Stephen King does charaters in his story, if your like this , then you'd like this listen, the reader makes the charaters come to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It?

    Many the showdown betwen Bev and her husband,,the fight between the boys and the "Wolfman" .


    What does Steven Weber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    One of the better read Stephen king books I've listened to. I love the way Stephen King does charaters in his story, if your like this , then you'd like this listen, the Weber makes the characters come to life.

    He doesn't do stutterers very well though.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Take a trip to Derry....


    Any additional comments?

    This is one case where I read the book, saw the movie, the movie sucked, the Book was so so. The Audiobook though is a great experience, if you never read this book or saw the movie, its worthwhile to listen to "it".

    Any additional comments?

    Stephen King is a craftsman with a beautiful literary voice. His words flow casually and perfectly, and culminate in so many brilliant phrasings... it's like he's nonchalantly tossing pearls in the air! I have been talking about his skill with friends, and I have been told that IT is one of his best works. I recommend IT strongly, especially since the reader, Stephen Weber, is also outstanding. Weber has an impressive vocal range, and he has the instinct and talent of a performer.... bringing an energetic cadence to sentences that you know others would read flatly. I think listening to Weber read brought more to the novel than my own mind would have, had I read it myself.

    Story
    "Absolutely perfect"

    I'm no stranger to Stephen King, but I never got around to reading "It." I saw the movie when I was a little kid and it scared the crap out of me! I didn't realize the novel would bring that fear to a whole different level! First of all, the narrator Steven Weber is a full-blown performer and he absolutely earned his paycheck acting the hell out of these characters! He brought every single one of them to life. The story itself is insanely horrifying. I like to read/listen to audiobooks at night while I fall asleep. This book would actually keep me up at night because of how freaky some of the scenes were. I remember being tightly huddled under my covers, unwilling to stick out my arm to turn off the audible app because I was scared by the scene that was currently being narrated! Not every author can do that!

    Story
    "Classic Stephen King wholesomeness!"
    Where does It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Steven Weber is the main reason this book ranks in my top 5 audiobooks. He is so full of characters in general, and the many narrations he does for King just brings the books to life. It's as if King writes with Weber in mind.


    What did you like best about this story?

    King's descriptions are so vivid! I was immediately taken away to Derry, Maine and I didn't leave until 5 days later when I was done. Each character was written with so many details; nobody was left out. Such a fantasy with so much meaning behind it, which is what I expect from King at that time period.


    What does Steven Weber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He deserves the equivalent of an Oscar for narrating. He nailed every bit of that book!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There is a movie but it doesn't hold a candle to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This was just a real enjoyable book to listen to. Its as though you too are part of their club and part of their experiences

    Story
    "Entertaining, great characters."
    If you could sum up It in three words, what would they be?

    Characters, Disappointing Ending.


    What other book might you compare It to and why?

    The Stand, because it's King's longer work.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    He really captured the characters, the stuttering was standout.


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

    Read this book in High School, sure brought back memories. The ending though... the spider and the turtle... rubbish. So disappointing.

    "Never go wrong with a Stephen King Classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The mind of King is a demented paradise which a reader could live a lifetime while never getting a good nights sleep!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It?

    Honestly, when it came out that the 11 yr old girl allowed 6! Yes count em 6 11/12/13yr old boys to gang bang her in the sewer and nobody remembered?? I'm sorry but the party would been at her house eery weekend if I was 13!! I'd of never forgotany girl willing to catch the TRAIn! Stephen you dirty old man you!! Shame shame!


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

    Up towards the top!


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

    It is the only name! Unless maybe name it ..Under Derry, It waits!


    Any additional comments?

    Stephen you dirty ole man you!! Thinking back there was a lot of sexual parts with this 11yr old girl?? What's up with that?? Realism actually is all I cared about at that age!! Still is!!

    "The best voice acting of any audiobook I've read!"
    Any additional comments?

    Steven Weber treats King's myriad characters with such delicate humanity, giving each their believably distinctive characterization without making any of them a stereotyped characeture.
    The characters are what makes the heart of the story, and the heart is huge. As Stephen says, he's more interested in the humans than the monsters.
    This is classic Stephen King, at his Dickens-esque best, and a gem of a reading by Steven Weber.
