To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: 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.

My favourite book by my favourite author! In an epic tale of Good VS Evil, a group of childhood friends are drawn back together to fight a malevolent entity in their home town. This is a perfect example of Stephen King's ability to develop a unique cast of characters. He captures the essence and wonder of childhood, and then seamlessly integrates the pressures of adulthood, like no other author can. You will never forget this book!! It's the perfect read for those of us who love being terrified!!! - Lynda (QBD)
After reading this book I formed two full on phobias firstly of clowns like everyone else in the world, secondly of grasshoppers completely irrational I know. If you want your pants scared off you, this is the book to read. Stephen King would have to be my favourite author, and this book would have to be up there in my favourite books of all time. He is an absolute genius. Not for the faint of heart. Reviewed by 30ti
