The story follows the exploits of seven children as they are terrorized by an eponymous being, which exploits the fears and phobias of its victims in order to disguise itself while hunting its prey. "It" primarily appears in the form of a clown in order to attract its preferred prey of young children. The novel is told through narratives alternating between two time periods, and is largely told in the third-person omniscient mode. It deals with themes which would eventually become King staples: the power of memory, childhood trauma, and the ugliness lurking behind a façade of traditional small-town values.
To b honest, this book is really scary, but an amazing read. Its a very very long read about 1090 Pages, but worth it. IT by all means is NOT a simple novel. As its said, "The most important things are the hardest things to say" some times u just donno how to put it in words. Words sometimes diminishes the value of the feel.
IT is a story about seven children who lives in Derry, Maine in 1958. They are not strong, not so popular, and definitely not the smartest. They call themselves "Losers". They encounter a horrible force in their hometown. Force, that look like a clown. Force that adult dont want to see. How these children confronts and defeats IT is what this book all about. So, go ahead, grab a copy and start reading as to what happen and how it happen and what happened NEXT ...
Happy Reading !!
