SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOVIE IN 2017 directed by Andres Muschietti and starring Bill Skarsgard as the story's central villain, Pennywise, and an ensemble of young actors including Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things)To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part. A good place to live.It is the children who see - and feel - what makes the small town of Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes IT reaches up, seizing, tearing, killing ...Time passes and the children grow up, move away and forget. Until they are called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

            IT is the scarriest book I've read by Steven King and any author for that matter. You won't be able to put it down. I was amazed that a book could actually give me goosebumps. Warning maybe too scary for younger readers.

                    I absolutely loved the movie but I haven't read the book yet. I bet its going to be a lot better and I would love to read it.

                      A great book; will have you up at night waiting in fear. Another great hit by Stephen King just like The Shining
