Summary
It: Chapter Two—now a major motion picture!

Stephen King’s terrifying, classic #1 New York Times bestseller, “a landmark in American literature” (Chicago Sun-Times)—about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers…an evil without a name: It.

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. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers.

Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It.

“Stephen King’s most mature work” (St. Petersburg Times), “It will overwhelm you…to be read in a well-lit room only” (Los Angeles Times).

As others have said, the narrator is astoundingly good. I've never heard a book narrated so well, so distinctly for each voice, so pitch perfect for every scene. Of course it's a great story, King being an evil-genius and all, but the narration made this books so good it's almost painful to end.

This is only my second audio book ever. I am usually partial to holding the book in my hands, and reading the pages. This is masterpiece come to life. I predict that, Stephen King will come to be known as the greatest storyteller of our century. Period. Steven Weber is exactly the perfect narrator for this piece. What a web of mental pictures and sensory imaginings. Brilliant. Like one reviewer quipped: "enough said".

I wanted to get through the book before I'd watch the movie remake, and I have to say my expectations are pretty high now!I've seen the Tim Curry version, and it was of course pretty good, but I feel like they left out a lot from the book or the acting was dry at parts. The narrator made this book come to life even more than it would with just me reading it, great job and definitely a page turner! <3

Stephen King never gets old. This book is no exception. It kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. And the narrator was exceptional. He had all the characters down with voices and personalities alike. If you’re a Stephen King fan you definitely want to read this one.

I’ll start this review with a warning: this book is very disturbing and it’s violent/sexual content is not for everyone. It is also extremely long, around 1300 pages. That being said, it is a true piece of art. Interweaving two different decades and well over 10 different storylines, it comes together beautifully as one of King’s most impressive books. It can be a little dull in some parts but I promise it is 100% worth the listen/read. It is in my top three favorite King books and it will remain there as it is just so amazing and well put together that it shines in a way other novels can’t even imagine. 10/10!!!

This is one of the best of Stephen King, I liked his previous narration I think was done in 2010. This recent one is just meh compared to the first narration, a bit too over the top if you ask me (it feels like comparing Heath Ledger's Joker to Jared Leto's Joker).

This was one of the most intimidating books I have ever “taken on.” But honestly listening to it was worth it. It is horrifying, sad, tender and infuriating at times. It is so long that it can get confusing but I’d suggested giving it a listen.

The book is truly captivating as it is one of the most disturbing coming of age dramas ever written. The detail is immense and, though it is over 1000 pages, you breeze through it. The narrator takes time to get used to but he provides a nice touch to the books narrative by changing his voice, tone and intensity based on the character and situation. It can come off a bit corny at times but it helps with keeping up with who is talking and what exactly is happening as the book jumps around time periods.

I did not like this book at all. It flips around and is all over the place. The narrator has some extremely annoying voice for some of the characters. There is a lot of language which I could care less about but it went on at one point so long that I was wondering why I was wasting my time with this book. Wish I didn’t waste money on this book.

Truly terrifying and entertaining. The book and it's characters became people I genuinely cared for. I didn't want the story to end. I'll go through a few more books and probably come back to this one. The narrator is truly amazing. With so many characters in this story, including Ritchie who does multiple voices within the story, this narrator really nails it.

Loved this book! Did take a while to finish, but once I? did I? felt as I? have accomplished one of many trophies in the literature world to say that I? read and finished It! Loved the story of It and how it varies on the readers visualization of what pennywise looks like, and in my opinion that is what the story more scary, because everyone has their own idea of what the clown looks like!

A near perfect story! The loss of innocence incurred by the Losers Club is downright heartbreaking. While King weaves a story that is truly frightening (both Pennywise and the people of Derry), one cannot help but get a feeling of hopefulness from these seemingly powerless castoffs. I for one believe this is the work that truly surplanted King onto a different level of artistry for his craftsmanship on this fine novel. Brilliant narration only adds to this chilling story.

What a book. This was a great listen. The narrator really put his all into it. The voices and the different tones he uses were the best, consistent and not too much. Steven Weber really added to the experience of this book. The book is a doozy, it took me 4 months to finish. I had to take breaks. Stephen King is a great writer I like how he put just as much story and development into Derry as he did with one of the main characters. There's a certain part towards the end that I thought was just a tad too much. The book could be a little shorter, but I still liked it.

King is an exceptionally talented writer. In my opinion this is more of a losing of childhood story, than a coming of age story. What's more, they lost it twice. King, coming himself from a dismal, poor small town, does an excellent job bringing to life, from a child's perspective, this bleak yet at times adventurous existence that is growing up poor in a rural town. However King seems to view this fromessage the depressing side of losing all the magic, vitality, and seemingly eternal hopefulness of childhood. I find that the beginning and middle are full of passion and build, but the end fades quickly without much fuss. The narrator even implores it's young readers to go to the light and love the light of childhood and childhood beliefs as everything else is darkness and fades. If it weren't for the cocaine use, I'd say this was King's near-forty mid life crises and final homage and memorial to his lost childhood and the freedom and vitality he felt there. It is more of a story of psychological struggle that in the end fades and finally accepts the overtaking of aging and lost things/forgetfulness than an outright monster slaying adventure. Really enjoyed the read. Depressing worldview/outlook in its ending.

Disturbing. Frightening. Horrifying. Terrifying. I first attempted to read this novel back in the '80's when I was eleven years old. I had begged my mom to buy me the paperback addition at the supermarket, and she finally agreed to if I promised to read the book all the way through. I gave her my word, but after maybe 100 pages in, but I was scarred for life. I got far enough in to be introduced to Pennywise, and the idea of a clown coming through the drain to get me consumed my nightmares. It terrified me so badly that I would clog the drain with a washcloth during showers, which ultimately flooded my parents bathroom, with the water overflow rotting out the linoleum floor. For the longest time, my dad could not figure out what the problem was. He thought it was a leak when really it was Pennywise. I suppose Stephen King may still owe my dad the money it cost to replace the bathroom floor. At any rate, I eventually did finish the book during my high school years, and came to realize that it was one of his best novels. Listening to it on tape some 25 years later was an amazing experience. Over the years I came to remember that inferior TV movie more than I had the novel, so a lot of the details were new to me once again. I would recommend listening to this novel to anybody who has time to kill and enjoys a great horror story.
