Publisher's Summary

To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry, Maine, was just their hometown: familiar, well ordered for the most part. A good place to live. It was the children who saw - and felt - what made Derry so horribly different.

In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes IT reached up, seizing, tearing, killing....

The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed, and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of IT was deep buried, wrapped in forgetfulness. Until they were called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

    "Masterful - a horror classic"
    If you could sum up It in three words, what would they be?

    Elegant, sinister, terrifying.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stephen King has stated that his aim for "It" was to write his thesis on horror - to include everything that scared him as a child and adult. I think he has achieved this. It's a masterwork in terror. Although he has better known books, this for me is his scariest work. It is a long work following the youth and grown-up lives of several friends in a small Maine town. Both the children and the adults they become have well-realised damages and fears, and this relatability makes the scary encounters even more powerful. An iconic work I would recommend to anyone who fancies a chill sent expertly down their spine.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    Steven Weber reads immensely well, with passion and flair. It's more of a performance than a straight read, with each character given a distinct voice. And perhaps most important of all - his Pennywise is blood-curdling!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "They all float down here..."

    "Fantastic"

    I had been waiting for this to come out in audiobook format for a long time and I wasn't disappointed.
    The story is very detailed and incredibly engrossing.
    The narrator does and excellence job and I can't recommend this book highly enough.

    "Brilliant!"

    Read this book many years ago, and returned to listen to the audiobook. Remains in my list of favourite books. Enjoyed listening just as much as reading this fantastic book about friendship, childhood, trust, belief, fear, and the darker things that Stephen King is so good at putting into words. I again became totally immersed in the story and characters, and the narration by Steven Weber is excellent. Fantastic!

    "gripping"

    Despite its length it never feels like it is dragging, allowing you to become enthralled in the characters lives and sucks you in like a vacuum to story

    Great story - a slow build up and some awesome twists. A long book - but well worth it.

    "Fantastic Narration"

    This is the first book I have ever listened to and having read the book several times as a teenager, I was so impressed.

    I had my doubts about listening to an American accent for over 40 hours (being a grumpy Scot and all) but I was blown away by the narration. Although I found Beverly to be too softly spoken at times, he absolutely nailed the nasally voice of Eddie. And the thick New England accents were brilliant!

    The story is long and perhaps too detailed. However listening to it rather than reading takes the strain off and you can easily focus on the details rather than just the plot.

    There is a chapter near the end that I've never been able to get on board with and if you have read the book then you'll probably know what I'm referring to. Despite this, I would still put this book in my top 5.

    "Great Book"

    This is a great book. Having read it before I was very wary of listening to the audio version, as I was very worried it would spoil the book.

    Initially I was still not sure, but having just finished, I know it is very well read. I have listen to it without being aware of the length of the book and fully into the story.

    "Excellent performance"

    I have read this book many years ago and thought it was quite good. This time around I thought it was a bit too long.

    Steven Weber's performance was however excellent. He gave life to the book and I will definitely look for other books that he narrated
