Summary:

"A landmark in American literature" ( Chicago Sun-Times )-Stephen King's #1 national bestseller 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 ).

    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".

    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 my forever going to be my favourite book. The storyline is just amazing, and I love how relatable the characters are. Definitely Stephan Kings best book by far. And this is a very enjoyable narrator.

    Narration was terrific! Book was well written. However, 11 year olds experiencing sex for the first time? 1 girl, 6 boys, I must say, that part I could have done without as it was quite disturbing.

    Great read as I’m sure most already know. Some discomforting situations to find young children in but that seems to be the theme of the book. Narrator was amazing. Easily one of my favorites up there with Michael Kramer and Kate Reading.
