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.

    "Steven Weber brings it to life"

    I've read this book twice, but the passion in Steven Weber's reading was amazing and added an extra dimension. Well done.

    "One of my favorite SK books"

    It's a great story that I have read at least twice. Having it read to me was very enjoyable. The voices done by Steven Weber were extraordinarily good. Thank you and well done. Looking forward to my next book!

    "incredible !"

    IT was a movie favorite of my childhood and the book surpassed my every expectations filling in so many details sadly missed out in the movie.
    The narrator was spectacular in his performance and the voices he uses made for a super immersing story.

    "Too Long"

    I could remove about 10 hours from this book and it not make any difference to the storyline. i could most definitely remove the bit where all the boys took turns at having congratualtion sex with Beverly at the end of the book.... wtf
    And I'm no prude, but does every "bad" character need to use such horrible profanity?
    This book reminded me why I stopped reading Stephen King 2 decades ago.

    "What happened in the end?????"
    What did you like best about It? What did you like least?

    This is a long story - awesome characters and plot and I was completely sucked in - I couldn't stop listening . . . until the end. The last 10% just gets too weird and left me feeling unsatisfied.

    Story
    "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..."

    "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!

    One of Stephen King's best books. Read it 25 years ago and wonderful to revisit as an audio .

    Narrator is the best I've heard yet, great voices and done with enthusiasm. Did the book justice and would like to hear more Stephen King from him. Well done, Sir!

    Classic, gritty, compelling and great performance by the narrator made this a very enjoyable listen. Not one for the faint hearted as it touches many topics now considered to be politically incorrect.
