To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry, Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered, a good place to live. It was the children who saw – and felt – what made Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, It lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each person’s deepest dread. Sometimes It reached up, seizing, tearing, killing…
The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of It was deep-buried, wrapped in forgetfulness. Until the grown-up children were called back, once more to confront It as It stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.
I know y’all are gonna be tired of me talking about this book, but at the moment I’m really excited to read this book! I’m currently reading three books so I won’t be starting this one until I finish those three…or at least two of them! I have mixed feelings about King’s writing so I can’t wait to see if this book changes my mind.
Have you read this book? What did you think? Have you seen this movie? What did you think about the movie?
I saw the movie and I really liked the movie…the newer version that came out. So, I was hoping I would like the book too. I know the book is usually better than the movie so I’m hoping that’s the case with this one too. 🙂
Have a great day everyone!!!! I hope y’all enjoyed this post!
