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)

    "AMAZING!"

    I really enjoyed the story and was impressed by the close adaptation of the tv series considering the limitations hindering such a production.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY: I am absolutely in awe of Steven Weber's reading skills. His voices and inflections and overall verbal interpretation of this epic novel have truly revealed his versatility to me. I would give the book four stars because it gets a little to "out there" towards the end (just a little), but the quality of this performance has boosted it to the big five.

    I moved on to The Shining and must say that Campbell Scott is very very good as well. Just a recommendation.

    "IT is Fantastic"

    This book ROCKS!!! So glad I decided to read this classic written before my time. I'm buying all of Stephen King's books after this.

    "Excellent Narration"

    I never took the time to read IT as it is quite a commitment. At first I thought this would not be able to keep my attention but I was thoroughly impressed with IT and the narration!

    "Standing Ovation for Steven Weber"

    What a performance! I hope he considers making audio books a serious career extension. No disrespect to Muller, Guidall and all the greats -- but Weber definitely has a gift and I hope it leads to more from him in the future.

    "Simply the best"

    This was the first audiobook I purchased. I'm a big King fan and this had always been one of my favorites (both the novel and the mini series are great.) I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and soon realized I was spoiled by this being my first "listen." I have continued to purchase audiobooks and have enjoyed them, but to this point I feel as this one is still my favorite. Along with the fact that this is an unbelievably great story, the narrator is the best I;ve heard. This is the longest book I've listened too and yet I wish it was longer, I didn't want 'It" to end.

    "One of my favorites"

    First of all, if you like Stephen King, you'll love "It". It's just a great book. I was a little worried about getting this, because some of King's audiobooks have annoying back-ground music, which I hate. This one doesn't, and the narration is excellent. To me, a good narrator is one you don't really notice--not a monotone by any means, but not a dramatic interpretation, either-- and Weber's voice allows you to focus on the story completely. This is one of my all-time favorite King books, and I'm glad I bought the audio version.

    "One of King's Best"

    Need I say more - King is beyond doubt the master of horror fiction. Why, because his characters could be your next store neighbor. Love this book!

    "I am another person that liked it."

    This book already has so many reviews, maybe this one isn't needed. This was the longest audio book I have attempted to read and I am so glad I tried it. I didn't know much about the book but decided to take a risk on it and I am very glad I did. Great story, great characters, achieves so much that only a book can.

    "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!

    "100% SUPERB!"

    To me this book is a masterpiece of both King's Horror writings as well as audio book narration. If you are here, you know of King's awesome abilities and I will not waste time elaborating on this story, other than to say it is a must for any King fan that has never read it. The narration by Steven Weber is absolutely amazing and will keep you thoroughly entertained and horrified from beginning to end. Bravo King and Weber. I will most assuredly purchase more Weber narrations.
