I needed therapy after reading this book in the 7th grade, I slept with the lights on for 3 weeks. I am not entirely sure there is a book that has shaken me more. Great read!

This was the first Stephen King novel I ever read. It is huge- over 1000 pages if I remember right. I loved every minute of it and have been a fan of King's ever since.

I was a little wary of reading this book at first, because I'd seen the movie first and it bored me to tears. It was a little hard to start reading, but once I got into it, I found I loved the book. I could hardly put it down and by the time I got to the end I saw where King had gotten his reputation.

This was the book that hooked me on King's writing, and I've found this same gift to hold the reader to pages in many of his other books. :D

Great book! I couldn't wait to get to the end of it. I was intimidated at first because the size of it. It is a very lengthy read but with the way Stephen King's describes everything it makes you feel like you are there battling "It" along with them. I was a little dissapointed with what "It" actually turned out to be but each their own. If I would have read this when I was younger I probably would have had nightmares about clowns for weeks. :)
