SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION MOVIE IN 2017 starring Finn Wolfhard, Bill Skarsgard (from STRANGER THINGS) and Jaeden Lieberher. To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part.
A good place to live. It was the children who saw - and felt - what made Derry so horribly different.
In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread.
Sometimes IT reached up, seizing, tearing, killing ...The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of IT was deep-buried, wrapped in forgetfulness.
Until they were called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

Good but predictable. Could have told the same story in far fewer words.
Review by Lukerik
Great concept, and it was this that sent several shivers down my spine, rather than excitement at the action.The book is undeniably bloated and the themes which are clearly brought out in the earlier parts turn into sentimentality by the end where he actually gets a bit emotional and teary-eyed. It's enjoyable to be immersed in the world but quite frankly it could have been done in far fewer words. He repeats himself a lot.Still, if you like King's voice and you're looking for an unusual and tasteless horror novel, then you've just found the right book
