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
Stephen King’s spine-chilling classic seizes on your worst fears—literally. Seven Maine youths battle a shape-shifting entity that takes the form of whatever its victims dread most, from a malicious clown to a snarling werewolf. King’s nightmarish epic is densely plotted and expertly told, complete with sympathetic, down-to-earth characters, lucid descriptions, and dashes of absurdist humor. The master of horror proves he can ruthlessly terrorize even the most stoic reader.
Wesley Smith buys an Amazon Kindle to keep his mind off his recent nasty breakup, but he finds that his version is no ordinary e-reading device. Smith's Kindle has a special Ur option, which reveals the future and all the works his favorite authors have written in parallel dimensions. However, when the Ur delivers news of terrible events on the way, Smith must decide if he should interfere in fate. While King can certainly spin a good story, the Amazon Kindle focus (the story was written exclusively for and can only be read on an Amazon Kindle) keeps this one feeling like an advertising gimmick. While listeners can easily follow Holter Graham's narration, his style and projection aren't particularly impressive. He is consistent with his characterizations, but his light nasal voice lacks energy and momentum, and given that King's voice is quite similar to Graham's and King can narrate just as well, it seems unnecessary to have enlisted Graham, whose performance adds little additional flare.
Stephen Kings Grand Thesis
You cannot just simply take my word for it, or anyone else's word for that matter. This book will make you feel every emotion possible. This is kings best work in my mind. If you have not read "IT" then I am jealous. I wish I could go back to the first time. I don't even want to write up anything pertaining to the story. Jump in and enjoy this magical present that S.K. Has given to you. You won't regret it!
I am 13 years old and I personally love the book and the movie. I have read this book multiple times and feel it is one of Stephen Kings greatest books and thesis
