Stephen King, It - The story is about a shapeshifting...”

Written on: 04/06/2005 by StephenKingFan3425 (4 reviews written)

Good Points
The characters and scenery are so vivid that you feel like you're actually there. Great storyline.

Bad Points
A little slow, definitely NOT a children's book, and when you take a shower it makes you just stare at the drain waiting for somthing to come out.

General Comments
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 house, drain to drain.

Seven Brave Kids that are considered losers from everyone else defeat the nightmare that is IT. afterwards they make a vow that if IT ever comes back that they will return to Derry and face IT once again. 27 years later the children of Derry are being murdered and strange sightings of a clown are reported. The seven are called back, but only 6 return. The other was driving to suicide when he heard that the monster he still fears to this day has come back.

When they return, IT notices and tries to get rid of them individually but when they finally find each other they once again go into the sewer that is IT's domain, ready to fight the nightmare they faced as teenagers.

This book will grasp you and scare you a whole lot. You won't be able to put this book down, but please, don't read it in the bathroom. This book will be one of the best books you will ever read. Watching the movie will make you want to read the book even more. Truly mesmerizing and haunting at the same time (even if it's about a clown).
