This is the first Stephen King book I ever read, and it is by far my favorite right now (I have also read Salem's Lot, Rage, Road Work, and The Long Walk). It also houses some of my favorite literary characters of all time, including Ben Hanscom and Bill Denbrough. This is more than just a gory, senseless horror novel: it is also a sensitive, coming-of-age story of seven misfit children. IT by Stephen King is a terrific novel with an excellent ending, and I would recommend it to anyone!

'It' is the story of a monster that takes the form of a clown and preys on children in a small American town called Derry. The main characters are 7 children who are friends, and they take on the clown. I watched the film of Stephen King's book when I was younger, and now reflecting on it, I think that it has more to it than being a simple horror story.
Derry is mostly a quiet and respectable town on the surface, but the story gives the impression that there is something dark and malignant... (read more)

I saw the movie adaptation of this book first---and truly wish I hadn't spoiled it all for myself. After some debating with myself whether to buy this book and read it or not---I'll pretty much know what happens---but most Stephen King adaptation movies from books don't meet up with the standards of the original novels so I decided to check this one out. At first looking at, my first impression was This is going to take quite a while to finish. It was a thick book---the paperback version I... (read more)

Stephen King, It - The story is about a shapeshifting monster that came from outer space centuries before the book's setting, and the seven kids who defeated this nightmare only to have it come back 27 years later. The book is split into 5 parts. The first 3 parts are a little slow, but they speed up gradually.
Anyway, IT mainly takes the form of a psycho clown but can shift his appearance into the deepest fears of the children he prays on. IT lives in the sewer traveling from house to...(read more)

Stephen King, It: The story is very well written, very well constructed, and by the middle of the book the reader gets a real sense of the characters and it's hard to put the book down. It's about a bunch of kids who aren't accepted by their classmates, they all find each other and become the "losers". Their old school bully, Henry Bowers, becomes insane and drives to kill them. The sewers are their main concern, however, because what lurks in them can become what you fear the most. In the... (read more)
