Book Review-IT BY STEPHEN KING

This massive SK hit is one of my best reads till date. I can’t wait to watch the 2017 reboot version of the movie based on this novel that  just released.

STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS

It was the children who saw – and felt- what made the town so horribly different. I’m the storm drains and sewers ‘IT’ lurked,taking the shape of every nightmare,each one’s deepest dread. As the children grow up and move away, the horror of  IT is buried deep – until they are called back.

PLOT IN SHORT

The story is set in 2 summers, 27 years apart in Derry, Maine. The members of the losers club namely –

Bill- the leader/ the stutter

Richie – the goofball

Eddie – the frail sickly one 

Ben – the builder / fat kid

Stan – the skeptical/ sensible one

Mike – the African American kid

Beverly – the tomboy/ the one from the broken home

Are a bunch of misfits who are brought together by similar strange experiences and the hatred for the local bully Henry Bowers. Their journey from being losers to standing up to their bullies and defeating IT forms the essence of this epic tale.
THE GOOD

– unforgettable characters

– Pennywise the clown is a true blue horror villain

– so many twists and turns

– well written

– scary for real
THE BAD

 lenghty with too much description in certain places

– a certain scene towards the end was unnecessary in my personal opinion

MY THOUGHTS

This is the kind of book that you either hate or you not just love but actually live it. The characters are so relatable as kids and even as adults and teach us so many things in their own flawed ways. My only complaint from this book was one scene towards the end. Must read for every horror lover atleast once every 27 years.

MY RATING

4.5/5
