It is my 2nd Stephen King novel. My first was The Dead Zone, and that too, the audiobook which is exquisitely narrated by James Franco. You can read my review of The Dead Zone here

Individually each get themselves up close and personal with It, the fiend liable for the murders.

Around 30 years after the fact they all return to Derry to confront It one last time. Can this gathering of underdogs kill It once and for all or will this be their last night alive? A genuine positive versus negative story of loathsomeness.
This notorious novel is a genuine bad dream, It (Pennywise) is the ideal beast since he turns into the very thing you fear, feeding off your apprehensions. In addition to the fact that King gives us a horrendous fiend, along with a great gathering of characters.
IT (Scribner Reissue Edition)
The initial scene is loaded up with signature King savagery and awfulness, giving us the initial look into It and exactly how vile this animal is. After a spine-chilling opening things don’t back off at any point in the near future, quickly presenting the cast of primary characters. A gathering of youthful outsiders who track down a long lasting companionship together subsequent to being named washouts and having encountered It himself.
It (Original Cover Art)
Every last one of these children is special carrying something so genuine to this story. Bill is the scholar, he is daring and fearless, the pioneer. Beverly, the lone young lady in the gathering is extreme, brilliant, and delightful, demonstrating she is similarly pretty much as intense as any of the young men. Ben, who is erudite, has an ability for engineering and has a sweet character. Richie, the trickster, or comedian of the pack is continually making jokes or voices. Mike, the voice of reason, keeps the gather and is the one in particular who remains in Derry, in the long run uniting everybody back. Eddie, who is injured by his domineering mother is connected to his inhaler, the killjoy of the gathering. At long last, Stan, is a modest person with an endearing personality.
These characters have an effect. Every one was intense, interesting, and adorable. My personal favorites were Beverly and Stan. I partook in Stan’s humor it gave a daintiness to this generally dim story. Not exclusively was there an astounding cast of individuals, however the villain of this story was likewise startling. Loathing jokesters to begin brought a pristine degree of dread. Pennywise, otherwise called It, was depicted in such incredible detail you would think he was not a fictional creation at all.
Do you know how a portion of King’s books are simply excessively long? Well… this is one of those books. No wonder it took me 2 years of on and off reading to conclude the It saga.
Albeit, whenever I came across it, this book kept my consideration, it was a couple hundred pages excessively tedious, feeling drawn out during specific parts. Would likewise have jumped at the chance to have more of a Pennywise origin tale.
When all is said and done, if perhaps you are searching for a phenomenally shocking tale; something to keep you up at any time of the day, I would frankly suggest Stephen King’s 1000+ pages It.
The Rating: 4 out of 5.
