Itby Stephen King
Far more intense than the movie, Stephen King's It is structured to create great suspense. The book emphasizes the hopelessness of the situation — in which unarmed children are up against an unknown, demonic force — along with the relationships developed by the children.
After reading this book, I was very afraid of going near a drain of any kind (shower, sink, toilet... you name it). Also, I have a fear of clowns, and Pennywise is one scary clown (although Tim Curry did an amazing Pennywise in the movie).
