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.

Quotes & Awards

  • 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.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • “A sprawling scare-fest.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “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.”

    Library Journal

  • 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.”


Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Judy | 2/4/2014

    " I read this some time ago when I was going through a Stephen King phase. I found it disturbing. To this day clowns frighten me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kehbeth | 2/1/2014

    " Definitely one of the scarier Stephen King books I've read - though I've finished it, I'm more terrified of clowns now than whilst reading it. The ending is rather well done for King despite what people have to say. It is long but King's signature writing style makes it go by quickly and keeps you turning the pages. The only problem I have with the book is the lack of connection that I felt with the characters. Though their histories are very well developed, as well their personalities, I just felt this disconnect throughout the entire book. I think it may be from the way the reader is presented with two slices of time, one from the characters' childhood and one from their adulthood while little is given about the time in between. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mark Isero | 1/23/2014

    " This is my favorite book by Stephen King. I read it the summer after sixth grade, and I identified very much with the characters. It was probably the first *big book* that I read, and I remember reading it voraciously, being scared, and feeling weird at the end. The parts when the characters were adults were above my head, but the rest was very compelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rachel | 1/23/2014

    " Overall, this book was probably worth reading. At almost 1100 pages, that's saying quite a lot. However, a length between 300 and 600 pages would have really improved the overall experience. The length made it impossible to really maintain suspense simply due to the amount of time required to get through it. Also, it felt Bill Denbrough was a clear stand-in for Stephen King, so the relentless singing of Bill's praises got a little old. On the positive side, the ending was pretty good, and did justice to the long, slow buildup, which is rare for books that attempt to be epic. "
