It – by Stephen King, book review

A week with over one thousand pages, seven sleepless nights and a new fear of clowns. This is what Stephen King brought on me with his great novel “It”.
I was shocked, scared and amazed at the same time. This book was definitely written in his peak form. One of the best of the bests.
Although the book is very famous and has its films counterparts I decided to write a review about it with a hope you guys will join me and became a huge Stephen King’s fans.

The author knows how to focus readers attention and capture their minds. He returns to his favourite small-town climates (the same small town we have read about in “Cujo”) The story is about the fight between good and evil that has been there for centuries.

In 1958, in fictional small town of Derry a series of cruel crimes take place. The brutally murdered children are found, both the police and parents are convinced it is a serial killer doing… they could not be more wrong.
Then seven friends; six boys and one girl are witnesses to strange events and are able to see children’s murderer in his most common mask - clown. The bunch of friends decided to face the beast and put an end to the circle of this brutal events.

The action is built gradually and unhurriedly with great descriptions. The characters are tailor-made - living figures, each with unique qualities, each memorable, each with its own history. All of this makes this novel a perfect read, intense narration doesn’t let the curiosity leave the readers even for a minute - and what I must admit is a big achievement as the book is not one of the shortest.
It is a novel about growing up, discovering the world, the power of friendship, the worst nightmares of childhood haunting over adulthood. It forces the readers to widen their imagination, look into their dusty nooks, and what's important - to discover if there is fear that is caused by IT.

Stephen King again (alongside "Carrie" and "Joyland") invites readers to travel through the uneasy childhood and recesses of the mind of growing up.

As I mentioned above I was thrilled by this book. And with a clean conscious I recommend this book to every reader out there.
