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).

They were teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now it is calling them back to Derry, Maine — a force they cannot withstand, an evil without a name...
"A great scary book." San Francisco Chronicle
"A landmark in American literature." Chicago Sun-Times

We're all gonna die down here. . . .
Julie lies dead and disemboweled in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. Her friends think shes just off with some guy—no one could hear her getting torn apart over the sound of pulsing music.
In a tunnel nearby, Casey regrets coming to Survive the Night, the all-night underground rave in the New York City subway. Her best friend Shana talked her into it, even though Casey just got out of rehab. Alone and lost in the dark, creepy tunnels, Casey doesnt think Survive the Night could get any worse . . .
. . . until she comes across Julies body, and the party turns deadly.
Desperate for help, Casey and her friends find themselves running through the putrid subway system, searching for a way out. But every manhole is sealed shut, and every noise echoes eerily in the dark, reminding them theyre not alone.
Theyre being hunted.
Trapped underground with someone—or something—out to get them, Casey cant help but listen to her friends terrified refrain: Were all gonna die down here. . . .” in this bone-chilling sophmore novel by the acclaimed author of The Merciless.
A great book a landmark in American literature.”—Chicago Sun-Times
