A promise made twenty-eight years ago calls seven adults to reunite in Derry, Maine, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if It should ever reappear. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that summer return as they prepare to battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers once more.
“It will overwhelm you…Characters so real you feel you are reading about yourself…scenes to be read in a well-lit room only!”
Los Angeles Times
“A great book…a landmark in literature.”
“A sprawling scare-fest.”
“King’s most mature work.”
St. Petersburg Times
“[King’s] best novel since Firestarter.”
“For a book with such a tiny title, Stephen King’s It is one huge undertaking. It’s a good thing actor Steven Weber is on board to perform it, all forty-five hours of it. Weber is skilled at wringing out all the emotion, evil, and mystery in King’s book.”
“The amazingly prolific King returns to pure horror, pitting good against evil as in The Stand and The Shining…the requisite thrills are in abundance, and King’s depiction of youngsters is extraordinarily accurate and sympathetic…King is a born storyteller, and It will undoubtedly be in high demand among his fans.”
“It is a great story full of memorable events, places, and characters…what I like most about It, and what separates the book from much of the rest of King’s oeuvre, is its thoughtful exploration of that amorphous crossing of the bar from youth to maturity…It is a horrific page turner with deeper literary ambitions that it mostly fulfills.”
Steven Weber, an actor and an Earphones Award–winning narrator, made his film debut in 1984 in The Flamingo Kid and has since acted in numerous films and television series, including Wings and The Shining. He has also appeared in many stage productions, including National Anthems and the Broadway musical The Producers.
