Summary

It: Chapter Two—now a major motion picture!

Stephen King’s terrifying, classic #1 New York Times bestseller, “a landmark in American literature” (Chicago Sun-Times)—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.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real.

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, 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 reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It.

“Stephen King’s most mature work” (St. Petersburg Times), “It will overwhelm you…to be read in a well-lit room only” (Los Angeles Times).

    First of all I am 14 years old and love to read. This book is probably one of the best books i've read. I mean in my life. I am also a huge IT fan. I absolutely loved both of the 2017/2019 remake movies. Actually they might be two of my new favorite movies of all times. I recommend this book to people my age and older. 14+

    I’m a 15 year old book addict and I can say this is one of the best books I’ve ever read. This isn’t a book about a clown that kills kids, this is a book about friendship, love and the strength within us all. This book is an emotional roller coaster, and the physiological and humorous elements King weaves in along with humor are so enjoyable. The losers love and sacrifice for each other is beautiful, and the characters are so well written. You really become attached to each individual character. I’ve never cried so many times while reading one book. I recommend this book to everyone ages 14 and up (TW: sexual assault and other sexual content)

    I loved this book so much! It was so descriptive and super well written. I am such a big losers club/IT fan it’s crazy. iT one and IT two are such big emotional roller coasters it is crazy. This book made laugh and cry at the same time. It is such a touching book. It also gave me nightmares. I know that may sound like a bad thing but for me a horror book has to keep me up for 2 full nights to really be considered that good and this book was that good. I also loved the movies! The kid and adult casting was literally perfect. They did such a good job it left me in shock. I literally got the chills
