Publisher's Summary

"A landmark in American literature" (Chicago Sun-Times) - Stephen King's number-one national best seller about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers...an evil without a name: It.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It's a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real.

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made 28 years ago calls them to reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city's children. Now children are being murdered again, and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry's sewers.

Readers and listeners of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It.

    "Chapters run into each other"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't feel like the editing is bad, it's just that some chapters end in the middle of the sentence and then resume in the next chapter. It's a little jarring but not the narrators fault. (This happens a lot in the second half of the book)
    Thanks

    "Great story and narration but..."

    The editing is poor. There are many cut off sentences, and cut off starts. Otherwise a great listen.

    "Great story and performance, annoying clipping."

    Like many, I take issue with the occasional clipped word at the end of a chapter. While it doesn't completely undermine what is otherwise an exceptional story by Stephen King, and audio performance by Steven Weber, the distractions they cause do jerk you out for a brief moment all too often.

    "Great story and performance!"

    absolutely loved this book. great story telling and detail. the only downside was the occasional cuts in the audio where a word or two was missing at the end of a couple chapters.

    "King fans..."

    Steven weber NAILS this performance. always a fan of king (my first horror novel, hell maybe my first novel period that i read alone was pet cemetery) and is who made me fall in love with books; I'm definitely biased. I love his stories, watch and rewatch his movies, talk about him with coworkers and fantasize about a possible dark tower netflix series. My buddy and I used to joke about how much Wings has embraced king. I hesitated at watching weber's the shining because I felt it was so completely unnecessary. I'm halfway through this audio book and I had to tell someone how perfect of a job weber is doing .I'm going to watch his shining because of this performance. if you like king at all do yourself a favor and give this a listen. wow.

    "Why do words drop off?"

    I gave "performance" three stars for a very specific reason. During this book, the last word of certain sentences is dropped or cut off. It makes me feel like I have missed things in the book. The performance was excellent, but it seems like editing screwed up a lot. I'd recommend a different version of this book if you are looking to get it.

    "The Power of Imagination"

    I really loved this story. The suspense is there and you really don't know what It is until the end.... The characters are hard not to fall in love with or hate with a fiery passion.
    Note: There are really 2 stories in the book and it can be hard sometimes to differentiate them. There is a lot of abuse, of all kinds, in this book towards many of the characters. There was only one part I had to skip and it was the back story of Patrick.
    I think that it is still scary and that most everything tied well and ended well. Like most others I had many seconds where the last word or two was cut. Frustrating but not the end of the world.
