    "This is the scariest book ever produced by Stephen King. But just like all the other books he has written the ending sucks."

    "Where do I even start with this book? Halfway through the book, all the main characters sleep with each other and it's incredibly uncomfortable considering their ages. The book is incredibly long. Just see either of the two movies made about it."

    "Just caught this flick last night. IT was amazing! Growing up and watching Tim Curry's Pennywise on the TV adaptation was terrifying as a child so I was really looking forward to seeing Stephen King's novel get it's film adaption in theaters. I was not disappointed! The kids they casted did a superb job! I believed all their characters and could definitely see the visions I had from reading the book translated to the actors playing those kids. I had my doubts about how Pennywise would be portrayed but I was surprisingly impressed by the performance. The kid from Stranger Things was in here! There's a slight familiarity to Stranger things with the kids and the situation in IT but just darker overall. I'm not sure how I felt about the film changing up the controversial part of the book, concerning Beverly and the boys, but I understand why it had to be changed. Overall I think IT was one of the best Stephen King adaptions to film. I would probably rank this just below The Shining and the original Carrie. I think I'd rank it slightly higher than Christine, Cujo, Pet Semetary, and Firestarter. I'm a huge King fan and love all the movie adaptions and IT definitely met and surpassed my expectations. Oh by the way, also check out Gerald's Game! Can't wait for more!"

    "There’s an evil lurking in Derry, Maine. It lurks in the storm drains and the sewers. The scary part? The entire town is affected by evil that lives under the city wreaking its havoc upon the town, but only the children can see It. Seven outcasts form a bond in order to defeat It, deeming themselves The Loser’s Club. It, being a creature from out of this world, takes their greatest nightmares and turns them against each child. Thinking they defeated It as children, they lead a life outside of Derry until the murders start happening again. Twenty-seven years later, The Loser’s Club makes their way back to Derry to defeat the evil once and for all. "

    "IT is one of the best horror novels to date. It is really scary and you do not want to stop reading it. The first time I ever read it, I could not put it down. I read chapter after chapter. You will not regret reading this book. "

    "This is such a huge book for real. The pages have this nice soft feel. I've owned several SK books but speacially this one caught my attention for the first time when I was 16 years old. I still own the paperback edition but I went only trough several chapters because the presentation (in my opinion) was hard to read the words very tiny, so I never finished it. I was looking for a hardcover edition but I wasn't lucky enough to find one. Now I shall thank the upcoming movie for bringing up the book again specially in this edition that to my sight is a lot better to read. Now it is time to start again this amazing story."

    "One of my favorite books of all time is It by Stephen King. For how long the book is, I had a hard time putting it down. It is downright scary, but in a good way."

    "Stephen King’s terrifying, classic story, “a landmark in American literature” about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers…an evil without a name: It. As teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s 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 Derry’s sewers. Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. "

    "IT will forever be one of the best films and book from Stephen King. It's definitely a book for mature readers as some very questionable things happen in the novel that makes you say "What the heck" as you get further into the book. This is a book you will read repeatedly."

    "It is a thriller novel by Stephen King, centered around seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a childhood nightmare. Twin Peaks fans may find similarities between the two."

    "With the movie adaptation recently hitting theaters, I wanted to check out the source material to prepare me for the upcoming second part. I personally found the book very dense and a long read, and it took me several sessions to get through it. The book itself has some scenes I found questionable and some content that is not appropriate for children, so it wasn't really my cup of tea. People who want to get familiar with Stephen King's large body of work may want to start elsewhere."

    "Stephen King is a writer who is well known for supernatural thriller books, but the description assumes the reader knows that. The description should be a little bit more detailed and should make it clear that the theme of the book related to what is desired in the problem description. "

    "It is a Stephen King classic book that is a hallmark in American literature. Seven adults return to their Maine home to uncover a nightmare experience they had in their teens. They made a promise 28 years before and now the time has come to fulfill the promise. Horror awaits them as they meet again. "

    "one of the classic horror stories but not what I was looking for."
  • Tang Zhou
    Written on February 28, 2018
    "This is a classic Stephen King novel. It preys upon all of our fears. It reminds us of our child-like fears: those of clowns and mummies and other horrors. But it also interchangeably unlocks our darkest adult fears, such as losing a child. For these reasons, IT goes down with Stephen King's book Stand By Me for unlocking the vulnerable parts in us all. It's also just a good read."

    "This is an excellent choice. A true classic master piece. Best part about this choice is after reading the book you can watch the Original Movie or the new just released Movie based on this book. "

    "This is one of those instances where the movie and the book are both equally amazing. Incredible atmosphere and creepiness in this story. One of the few times I've ever legitimately felt chills from reading. King did a great job with this."

    "This is my first Stephen King novel and I was constantly shocked at the depth King went to on character-to-character interactions. Hard to imagine this book was written in the 1980's. The word journey best describes this book. If you are buying this novel because of a killer clown, you have no idea what your getting into. This is a wonderful book that everyone should read at least once. This book will creep you out."

    "The title, "It", isn't really all that odd. A title like, "Living with Crazy Buttocks" or "Pet's with Tourette's do more to capture my attention. However, the book with the oddest title that I've seen lately is “Learning to Play With a Lion's Testicles” by Melissa Haynes -- Now, that a book with an odd title."

    "This is a great example of horror genre books. Especially since recently there has been a movie release based on the book, a lot of people will be interested in reading the original version! I read this as a kid and it was definitely very memorably terrifying."
