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.

    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!

    "Best Narration I've Ever Heard"

    It was a long one, but so worth it. The narratir brought the story to life in a way that reading it myself never had before. He definitely clicks with King's style of writing. Absolutely spellbinding.

    "beautiful and horrific."

    With a story line so deep that it leaves you drowning in a torrent of horrific experiences, Stephen Kings It is like a parasite, sucking fear out of the darkness, digesting and excreting it as love. The character development is so complete that the reader feels not only that they know the characters, but that they are involved with them and an invisible player in their stories
    An undeniably brilliant story told in masterful style.

    "Steven Weber is the best narrator on Audible!"

    The book is so vastly different to both the movie versions, but there is so much in it, and it is so cleverly intertwined, it's definitely worth the effort to get to the end. Amazing King, as usual....

    "Stephen King's masterpiece read amazingly!"
    What made the experience of listening to It the most enjoyable?

    after spending 47+ hours in the car with the narrator, I'm truly sad the story has ended. I was so enthralled and engrossed in the reading that I too became a part of the characters lives. Amazing story read by an equally amazing performer, Steven Weber


    What did you like best about this story?

    the portrayal of each character, individual and unique


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    Steven read this book so well, feeling every moment and taking the listener on an amazing adventure and making the characters so real. I am truly sad I've finished the book!


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

    I have balloons! They float .... we ALL float down here.

    "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

    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..."

    "One of his best!"

    First read this long novel about twenty years ago- a brilliant read (took me about six months if memory serves! ). When I saw it on Audible, I knew I had to have it; had to visit my old friends in Derry again. I wasn't disappointed at all. Superbly read by Steven Weber. Highly recommended :-)

    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.

    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!
