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)
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.
Yes, this is a long title (it clocks in around 44 hours). The pace is good and I was rarely bored with it. This is not just a story about a killer clown, but so much more. Stephen King paints an amazing picture of the past. When the characters relive their childhood I was transported back in time. From the several Stephen King novels I've read this is one of his main strengths. The ability to create nostalgia for your own childhood is in full force here. Several times it brought me to thinking about my own childhood and growing up. All the little things we seem to forget in adulthood. Any story that moves me to feel and reflect is a winner in my book, but enough about the story. The Narration is PHENOMENAL.
Steven Weber does an incredible job. His pace and excitement while narrating IT brings this story to life. You can tell he actually enjoys this book. This makes the experience well worth the credit and 44 hours of your life. Hit BUY and enjoy!
I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite of my short time.
I remember when I watched this movie in the 80's. I was very scared, but I thought the movie was cool. The book is better, of course. A little too big, but the story never drags.
Duda Right Thing
I remember watching this on a made for TV movie. I thought the movie was awesome. It was scary, even though made for TV. The book and the movie are very close to one another. The book was phenomenal. The imagery was breathtaking. My kids were scared, lol.
