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).
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Leave it to Stephen King to turn a circus clown into sheer childhood horror. In 1958, a group of prepubescent outcasts in Derry, Maine, band together to face down an ancient and unspeakably evil creature (cloaked in the sewer-dwelling guise of Pennywise the Clown), only for the fiendish child slayer to resurface 27 years later. Narrator Steven Weber has acted in several King projects, and that familiarity with the author’s blend of small-town melodrama and mind-bending terror helps him handle the dozens of distinct character voices in this 44-hour epic. Dive in before It: Chapter Two hits theaters!

The narrator is very talented. this book is not scary but it still good
I think some maps or notes would have been worthwhile. This novel is a meaningful way to understand that the good old days where not always good. I do not hear as much music as I do when reading other Stephen King novels. The themes are fear, friendship and commitment despite it. I noticed IT was like a role playing quest. IT felt like wanting to watch a fight your friends are involved in because all these characters are about being less predictable then horror movie characters.
I listened to the entire audiobook because I wanted to be aware of all the differences or elaborations in the 2017 movie and the 1990 version. I will be done in time before the 2017 movie.
I was born in 1975 and I appreciate the vivid description of 1957-58. I am disappointed that 1985 did not seem as well described. I think the horror will only mean something to older adults.
I payed for full book and only got a book starting from chapter 17?? I hope someone can ether fix this or give me my money back! It was to be 44 hours long I only got 13 hours and it started in the middle of the book!! I have never had this happen before very disappointed!
I wrote the first part off this on November 8 it is now November 14 still haven't gotten a reply or my money back. I did however get a receipt from Apple thanking me for my purchase.
I find it frustrating that they only take minutes to take your money but to get a reply takes days,weeks!?ok it is now November 21 and I still have not gotten a reply from iBooks or the App Store or Apple !!!!NOT HAPPY!!! Give me a full refund Please!!
Steven Webber absolutely makes this audiobook. Period.
