"The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight yearsif it ever did endbegan, so far as I can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain."
This is the first line of "It," the beginning to one of Stephen King's masterpieces, and probably the most incredible story. Those who complain about it's length they need patience. Those who complain about its characters they need to look around at themselves and others. Those who complain about it being vulgar, vile, or horrific that's part of the story, and not to embrace it means you miss out on something extraordinary.
In the summer of 1958, seven friends encountered something horrible in their town of Derry, Maine. This something fed on children, hunting them, preying on them, and devouring them. It could shape itself in any way It liked, whatever their nightmares suited, but always with one trademark: the semblance of a clown. The seven friends all had something in common: They had all escaped It at some point. And in that summer, they learned about It, confronted It, and killed It or so they thought.
I found this book to be one of the greatest fiction books I have ever had the pleasure of curling up with for several weeks and reading (any book that can have me go through the full range of emotions over and over again and then get me to spend weeks reflecting on thoughts from the last two paragraphs has to rank up there). SK has managed to write the scariest novel I have ever read but also weave in multiple underlying themes (Good vs Evil, racial discrimination, the reality of childhood as seen through the eyes of a child - who can forget the schoolyard bullies?) that kept me thinking the whole way through the book. Rather than bore you with a long review - just read the book you'll be glad you did (although due to the mature and sometimes inappropriate content of a number of scenes, I don't recommend this book for anyone under 13/14). As a parting comment, the book is best summed up by my dilema - Which is scarier: Pennywise or the reality of what happens to us as we grow up and leave childhood behind?
