Book: IT

 Book: IT

Author: Stephen King

Pages: 1184

This is my 104th read for the year

This is the story of 7 Teenagers in Derry, Maine in 1958.  Something evil has come to their town and killed the little brother of one of them. The teenagers decide to ban together to try and rid the town of evil all while dealing with neglected parents and bullies.  In 1985, they are all asked by one of the group to return to Derry in a letter that states that It has returned and they need to come together once again to hopefully rid the town of It once and for all before more are killed.

This was an okay book. Extremely long and went on several tangents.  I think this could be about half the size if King would have stuck to one story line and not over indulged in getting into the weeds with side characters.  There are quite a few disturbing scenes (outside of horror) that I could have done without and could not really figure their place in the overall story.

Am I glad I finally read this daunting book?  Eh.

Stars: 3
