Alright I guess I don’t need any special introduction for this after you’ve read the title since it’s been everywhere and suddenly everyone wants It. I’m looking at you, weird psychotic clown lovers.
If you’re in the mood for a long good read, try It. Hehe. No, seriously, I’ve read a long Stephen King book before (like 800 pages) and it was really good (11/22/63). This time, I really wanted to skip the movie and read the book before I actually watch it tho I was pretty scared to watch it so I wait for it to come on DVD.
Stephen King’s It is over 1000 pages long and every page is awesome. I recommended it to every friend I talked to about it.
I find horror a difficult genre. If I would have to write a horror book I don’t know if I could do it. It’s hard to write something to actually creep out the reader but I can vote this one as the first book that gave me the creeps. I was literally mouthing “man that’s creepy” when reading a few scenes so get ready for some crazy stuff. I question King’s sanity.
BUT THE KIDS MAN! THOSE KIDS ARE THE COOLEST KIDS IN LITERATURE. I loved them as a group and individually too but when they were together they just made me think of the gang in Stranger Things. I’m glad Finn Wolfhard actually plays in both of them. He fits perfectly.
I loved the turtle idea that protects them and I loved their ambition to get rid of Pennywise once and for all.
I really hope the movie is good because the one from the ’90s was extremely lame and I don’t wanna think about it again.
Anyways, if you think about reading it, I can only say YYYEEESSSSS. 100% recommended.
