Description

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 teenagersan 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).

Professional reviews

"For a book with such a tiny title, Stephen King's IT is one huge undertaking. It's a good thing actor Steven Weber is on board to perform it, all 45 hours of it. Weber is skilled at wringing all the emotion, evil, and mystery out of King's book about an ancient evil that haunts a Maine town and the seven childhood friends who band together to destroy it. He delivers a good Maine accent, a malicious clown, several women, and a giant screeching spider-thing. King does not spare the ink in this one, layering detail upon detail until the listener knows everything there is to know about the characters, the town, and the monster that lives under its surface. Maybe too much. At 45 hours, IT demands commitment. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
