It, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (2 ratings)


SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOVIE IN 2017 directed by Andres Muschietti and starring Bill Skarsgard as the story's central villain, Pennywise, and an ensemble of young actors including Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things)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 is the children who see - and feel - what makes the small town of Derry so horribly different.

In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread.

Sometimes IT reaches up, seizing, tearing, killing . . .Time passes and the children grow up, move away and forget.

Until they are called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirs and coils 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

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
