It | Stephen King
A landmark in American literature (Chicago Sun-Times)Stephen Kings #1 national bestseller 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. Its 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 citys 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 Derrys 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 Kings most mature work (St. Petersburg Times), It will overwhelm you to be read in a well-lit room only (Los Angeles Times).

How can a book be both SO horrifying as well as wholesome? Leave it to Stephen King I guess! This story had me jumping at any and every sound in the night. I even got spooked out while I was cleaning the dishes one evening. Nightmares nearly every night that I had read it before bed.. If that‘s not talent, I don‘t know what is. ⚠️Review continues in the comments

BookBumming Probably the longest it‘s ever taken me to read a book (besides the Bible) but part of me didn‘t want the story to end! I was hooked. A lot of people said it could have been 400 pages shorter. But I disagree. In my opinion all 1,156 pages (4 pounds) of this book was necessary. 2d
BookBumming I fell in love with the Losers‘ Club, I really am going to miss them. Each character was written SO well. Even side characters were written dynamically.
If you want to read something that is going to make you shake in your boots, scratch your head, cry, AND laugh.. pick up Stephen King‘s IT. 🎈🤡🕸🕷

One of my favorite bookish costumes to see is Pennywise. Many people go way over the top and make it fabulous. I love to see a woman‘s take on the costume as well.

When I told Katie that she could pick out a book from the Strand (in addition to the aforementioned script of Betrayal), she chose this doorstop. ☺ She recently watched & loved the newer movies (she's a huge Bill Hader fan), and is now making her way through the book. I love this shot from our hotel, The Mansfield, in NYC. #raisingreaders

 "It" primarily appears in the form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown to attract its preferred prey of young children.

So far in the book we‘ve met two characters at a fair together and a group of other people don‘t like these two so they decide to beat them up but end up killing one of them. After we‘ve finished reading this part we start to get to know the main characters in the future. We learn about the people they have become and the phone calls they receive. I enjoy this book because it‘s realistic but not at the same time. The tome is confident but serious.

MissYaremcio Very nicely done Madison! I am impressed! You were just missing the recommendation part of your review! 2w

Went out of town this weekend with friends. Stopped by an independent book store. Bought 3 used audiobooks & 1 used paperback for $4 at their outdoor tent sale, then bought 3 new novels in the store. This was one of my new purchases. Last time I read it, I was 12 or 13. Looking forward to seeing if it holds up to my memory and how reading it as an adult might change my perspective.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Stephen King's writing style. His stories are good, I just find it difficult to get into. I'm glad I read and finished this. I've beat my record for longest book read (before this was The Witching Hour by Anne Rice which I read about 10 years ago and clocked in at 1209 pages). I was surprised that the 90s TV special was closer to the book that the new movies. Its not something I'd revisit but happy to have read it 🤡

Sorry for being inactive. I've been in a reading slump. Life got super stressful. But we are nicely settling in our new home. I'm finally starting to get into a bit of a routine again, and with Fall coming I can't wait to curl up with some good stories. 🍁🧡💛

So I know I've been meaning to get around to reading 'IT' for several years now, but I'm finally doing it! As always when fall comes around I get in the mood for some spookiness.

I‘m currently in the middle of It, my first Stephen King, and I think it‘s one of the first traditional #horror story that I‘m really loving!

When I went to see It: Chapter Two, I couldn‘t resist snapping this shot of the movie theater hallway, it looked like it‘d make a great scene for another movie...IT starting an hour apart infinitely. You can walk out of your theater, but you can‘t leave. 😱
