There was a time in my youth when I devoured every Stephen King novel. My mother was a big fan and when I was in high school I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. There are several classics by Mr. King, but none more creepy than his masterpiece It. There was a television miniseries based on the book, and just last year a big screen version – the latter much better than former. But better than both by far is the original book, and I highly recommend it – either for the first time, or rediscover it like I did.

About It by Stephen King:

“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.”

You will be as thrilled to rediscover Mr. King as you will be truly chilled to the bone.

It by Stephen King is available from Amazon and other fine book sellers.
