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 twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children.

Steven Weber's narration of 'It' was fantastic. That narration coupled with the writing of Stephen King made this one of the most enjoyable audibooks I've heard.

Just a note on the editing:
This book is written following the adult versions of the characters in this novel. The adults then recall events that happened during their childhood. The reason King chose to end a chapter, and seemingly begin the next chapter mid-sentence, is to show that the adult character is having a flashback to their childhood. Once you realize what King is doing, the seemingly poor ceases to be an issue.
