In the 1980's Stephen King was shaping up to be a huge force to be reckoned with.  There was one book, however, that seemed to define him more so than any other.  While King has written many books better than IT, the 1986 masterpiece seems to be what best defines King as a horror writer.  Imagine, if you will, that you put all your worst fears into one book and perhaps that's the best way to describe Stephen King's IT.  What you have is a huge sprawling epic.  It is among …

Possibly Stephen King's (long-winded) best. There are a lot of really great scenes, and the way he shifts between the two more or less separate narratives works really well.

One of my favorite King novels; gave me nightmares for weeks!

One of King's longer books, yet worth it. Adults haunted by their past when, as children, they fought a monster that has reawakened after all these years. A frightening look at what it means to be a child, fighting the fears that are more real than adults ever see... and then to be the adults who have to finish off the monsters once and for all...

So very fascinating as half the book you spend trying figure out the mystery, and the other half going with the kids, trying to figure out how they're going to get out of it.

So good. Reminds me of everything about my childhood, and about the power of innocence. Beautiful and nightmarish - prepare to be afraid of storm drains for the rest of your life.

Bill, Bev, Eddie and The Rest of the Losers Club...oh and Pennywise the Clown
I saw the movie long before I read the book and I must say that it does not do it justice at all.  I look at it this way, the book is a giant and the movie is an ant in comparison.  I have always been a fan of Stephen King ever since I first saw Stand By Me, but this 1500 page novel engrossed me.  I could not put it down and ended up losing a lot of sleep because I would rather read it than rest.  The most interesting aspect of the book to me was not the horror and …
