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)

    What did you love best about It?

    I finished this book last week and I'm still thinking about it. The story is incredible and the narration is phenomenal. So sad it's over. I'm having "It" withdrawals.

    "What a story, what a storyteller"

    A great thrill ride, even more so 20 some years later. The narrator is the supreme actor of all of the characters. He must have been exhausted at the end of each recording. Great energy and delivery. Sometimes seeing or hearing from an old friend can be disappointing, but this was even better than I remembered.

    "Excellent Narration For a Great Novel"

    I read It as a paper book many years ago and decided to give the audiobook a try when it was recently on sale. I would have been happy to spend 2 credits on this book, it is excellent. Stephen Webber does a fantastic job with the voices, he really brings you into the story with his narration, and when he does the Pennywise voice he creep me right out! Well done and I would listen to this again, all 25+ hours of it.

    "Love fest"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am a late Stephen King lover, but a lover no less. He makes people. He puts someone you know in an extraodinary situation. But what's more, he puts them in your head and then takes them on a macabre ride. While the words may never be topped, Steven Weber is the vehicle that makes the story come alive in a way that would NEVER have happened tn any other medium. He enriches the experience. He creates an expression that enhances the literary language in a way that becomes its own valued genre. I would kiss his head if I ever met him. MWAA!

    Story
    "Diabolical Nastalga"
    Would you listen to It again? Why?

    "IT" is a truly exceptional story. Steven Weber's narration and characterizations make Kings prose move easily.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like so many of King's stories there is no "one" thing I like best. King makes his characters real(this is why his tales are frightening.) Understanding the magic of childhood and the loss of leaving the magic behind is a consistant theme throughout this story. Reading "IT" is like looking at a painting by a master, where all the brushstrokes form an image that is only made complete by being explored by a viewer.


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

    Ben Hanscom


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The reunion of Bill and Silver

    "Great story, great performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of It to be better than the print version?

    I have enjoyed the audio edition of this work and haven't read the print version. I will say it was easy to follow for such a large book, and my appreciation of the story didn't suffer for listening to it instead of reading it.


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

    The narrator's various voices bring clarity to the dialogue and make clear which character is speaking.


    Any additional comments?

    IT as read by this narrator is a great, long story.

    "Like attending a one-man play!"
    Where does It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The narrator is fantastic. I'm not sure the audio book would be memorable if the characters were all played with the same voice. The book is a little tedious in parts but still held my attention. Worth the credit.

    "Outstanding Performance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this reading. It's one of my favorite books and Weber's reading made it even better. I was floored by Weber's reading. In fact, I can't think of another audio book that has had such an emotionally charged and entertaining performance.


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

    Stuttering Bill. When you listen to Bill's often painful stutter, Weber disappears entirely. It is amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to quite a few audio books at this point, and this one is easily the best that I have encountered. It is a brilliant book, with an equally brilliant performance, and that is very rare.
