Staff Pick

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.
Recommended by Nick S., Powells.com

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).

classic king, & dark tower fans will find a little something extra. sadly, the movie (well, tv miniseries, technically) pales in comparison, but that's not much of a surprise.

I love this book so much! I checked it out of the library and i just kept on renewing it and renewing it because it was just that good. I think that the auther wants his readers to love this book as much as he enjoyed writing it! I also love the movie but it kinda gave me the chills.
