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
"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)
I have read and reread Stephen King's books over and over. Love the fact that I can now LISTEN to them over and over!
Mr. Weber does an overall great job reading this story. Some parts DO get a little too loud at times.
I actually downloaded this onto my phone and rather than listen to the radio all night, I have a book running all night.
Absolutely. It is a bit long, but it never got boring & the story is phenomenal
It's a Stephen King Classic...not much more needs to be said.
This was the first audiobook I've ever listened to so I don't have anything to compare it with, but it was quite enjoyable.
I'm looking forward to buying more audiobooks. I spend so much time in my car and it offered a great means of entertainment.
There are too many scary points in the book. To say which one is the best, the narrator did a bang up job. He got the characters on the nose, especially IT!!!! ,
No one tells a story as good as Stephen King, in my opinion. This is a 45-hour book, but I never got tired of it.
Can't say that there was one great memorable moment. King weaves the story and the lives of the characters wonderfully.
Steven Weber is an excellent narrator. One of the best, if this book is any indication. His tone, inflection, voices for different characters were all spot on.
Lots of bad language and a few scenes that go too far. I've heard worse from King, though. It's pretty typical Stephen King regarding the language.
The narrator was extraordinary
The Stand. Same author same sort of narrative scope
His voices are great.
Very entertaining book. Gets you involved with characters and develops them well before getting into "It" one of Kings best. Long but that is a good thing with a great book.
Stephen King- probably not, though I love long books.
Stephen Weber- definitely.
Disappointing ending as in many King novels, but great performance.
Steven Weber's narration is one of the best I've heard. He really has a knack for bringing the story to life.
Very good narrator.
I hope not.
This is old fashion Stephen King horror. I've gotten used to his stories that are more sci-fi than horror. If you like horror books filled with very gruesome details, you'll love it. If gruesome details unsettle you, try a different Stephen King novel.
I listened to this book right after I finished The Stand. I have to say this book is shorter than The Stand by a few hours but it felt alot longer.............alot. Over all a good story with the normal strange and creepy King tid-bits mixed in. Well worth a listen.
