"A landmark in American literature" ( Chicago Sun-Times )-Stephen King's #1 national bestseller about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as 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 ).



  • I've read this book for the second time, and like most second readings, I discovered a new layer of depth beneath the familiar story. It presents a profound exploration of the true horrors that some children experience while growing up. The primary monster in this tale is the everyday neglect and abuse suffered by all the children. Even as they leave their childhood traumas behind, they must confront them as adults within the boundaries of reality. Children have the ability to dream, create illusions, escape into magical worlds, and erase memories of events they cannot handle. They possess an incredible imagination and survival skills that adults often forget or choose to forget. Stephen King skillfully portrays this recurring trauma with sensitivity and a deep understanding of innocence. He gives voice to the fears of children and brings these fears to life in forms that we can comprehend, or perhaps I should say, forms that we want to understand as monstrous rather than the everyday fears of our own children. If people had known that this book is about child abuse, it may not have achieved the success it did. It is much easier to sell a story about a killer clown. Who wants to hear about a young girl who is abused by her father and then her husband? Or a chubby, hypochondriac boy who carries his mother's fears along with an Oedipal complex the size of Maine? Or a boy who endures biting and abuse until he transforms into a monster? But "It" is indeed about all of this and so much more. The clown is merely a manifestation, a tool used by a brilliant author to remind us that we could have been or perhaps were these children. They possess magic within them, and it is up to us to care for them, otherwise it becomes a cycle of horror. I highly recommend reading "It," but be prepared to uncover the horror that Stephen King subtly hides where we least expect it.
