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!

Good BUT Narrator is yelling for the last 1/3 of the book
Good👍🏼 BUT the Narrator is yelling for the last 1/3 of the book. Which makes it very hard to listen to for more than like 20 minutes or so at a time. in fact the narrator is yelling or extremely exuberant in his reading for alot of the book and it’s not always clear why.
The best there is!
There is literally no possible reason to rate this audiobook less than 5 stars. It is the most immersive reading I have ever heard. Weber does a different voice for each character and his acting is great. Whether he is reading the lines of a man, woman, adult, or child (or monster) he does it so convincingly, it feels like you are listening to a movie. As a matter of fact, the story by King and superb reading by Weber gives you a much richer story than a movie ever could. Buy this audiobook, it is one of the best out there. Plus, it will save you from sore wrists from trying to hold the tome-like hardcover
This novel is awesome, whether you listen to it or read it, you won't find another novel like this one. This is my personal favorite of all of Stephen King's novels! Just give it a try!!!
Caution: This is not a children's novel. It is very explicit and contains a lot of violence.
