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).


  • One of the best ever

    I had this book as a teenager and gave up on it because of the length. Now at 46 and having an addiction to reading, i found it not just s great book but that i was actually kind of sad when it ended. King brings so much more depth to the characters who are known from the movies. There are many very very adult situations in the book so it’s certainly not for anyone under 18. But the struggle to go from adolescence to adulthood. From not being loved to loved. To facing fears as a child only to replace them with new ones as an adult, it was very easy to connect to the characters. Very much reminded me of the stand in its depth of character development. I will certainly revisit Derry again with the losers club prior to the release of the second movie. But it was a fascinating time going through the book.
  • Awesome book

    Starts off a little slow. But once it picks up it really picks up.
  • Love it (so far)

    I have the paper copy book, but I’ll leave a review for this one. I love it, though, it doesn’t scare me, for some reason. I don’t know if I’m weird, or not. But this is a great 1038 (or so) paged book! I know some things like; We all float down here! Kill them all! Kill them all!… Though I haven’t read the whole thing yet, so it could spook me. Otherwise, perfect book!

  • A Solid, Lengthy Read

    I picked this book up again after watching its new cinematic adaptation in the theaters. I’m a very big fan of Stephen King’s work, and I personally believe that this is his best book to date. It’s a long read, but it has a great combination of suspense and humor. There is a considerable amount of character development, and, by the end of the novel, I was heavily invested in the main cast and the struggles they endured. It’s a great read and I strongly recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of the suspense or horror genre.
