Description

It: Chapter Two—soon to be a major motion picture in 2019! 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).

    This book is really gorgeous. This novel gave me more than just pleasure. It gave me hope, made me feel more optimistic about life. Of course the “horror” scenes are truly disgusting and horrible and can inspire nightmares. But the main point of the book is about the special abilities and powers that children have and that adults do not have, and how we need to heal the rift, or close the rift that separates the child (each one of us used to be) from the adult (that we have become). To battle the evil of “It,” the adults must recall their childhoods to “staple the present to the past,” and rediscover who they used to be. It is about memory and about transformation and what makes each of us a “person” in spite of our constant transformations…for each human who grows to adulthood is a shape-shifter, just as “It” is a shape-shifter, and part of our power comes from this, but also from our twin abilities to remember, and to forget and obliterate what we were… I read this novel after my teenage daughter read it, but as a middle-aged man it meant something special to me. It made me feel better about hitting middle age, it made me feel more whole, and more in touch with who I used to be.

    My favorite book of all time. I’ve read 14 times and who knows how many more times I’ll read it again! King creates a world where you feel the eyes of a being of unimaginable horror on you as you follow the lives of a group of childeren who come together to face a creature that has haunted their town and hunted it’s children for years upon years. You will not find a better book that creates such a electric tingling atmosphere that you will catch yourself reading way past the hour you said you would put it down at.
