“A great book…a landmark in American literature.”—Chicago Sun-Times

Welcome to Derry, Maine…

It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real….

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.

I have read Stephen King books ever since I was a little girl! I loved how they made you forget about the world and pulled you into a newer one! IT was one of my first books I ever read that had so much gory details and uhm.. perverted details if you will.. None the less it was a beautifully written book and he's a great and legendary writer! Definitely a good read and you'll not want to put it down!

I watched the film. Amazing the whole 3 hours was intense.I watched the film in February 2014 i stayed up all night watching the first hour and stoppede downstairs because the following morning i was going on holiday to Gran Canaria so after i watched the first hour i watched the rest on holiday. I had a fear of clowns so i was super scared being 12 at the time. But overall my fear of clowns was gone but took a while, my ideal cure for clown fears is this let ur child watch the film then read him the book.
