Hello, Happy Monday! Today I’m going to be reviewing Stephen King’s novel It.
Not only am I going to be posting my review of this massive book, but I also want to celebrate a little. This blog post marks my 400th post! 🎉 Holy that is a lot of posts! Here’s to the next 400!
It by: Stephen King: Nothing is alright in the town of Derry, Maine. Children have started to go missing and die and it’s the people around and related to them who are affected. Seeing their deepest fears in It a group of seven kids decide that they need to beat It. Over the span of roughly 30 years something brings all of them back to Derry for one last hurrah, and it is time to beat It once and for all. This novel had one hell of a plot; completely creepy and utterly terrifying, King has created a masterpiece of pure terror. The plot was entertaining and frightening, but that’s what propelled the reader to go further into the depths of this story, and there were many depths. The story wasn’t told in chronological order which threw the reader off at times, trying to figure out what year it was, and if the characters were children or adults. That was a little jarring, but it enhanced the story a lot because it led to our introduction to our characters in the best way possible. These characters were so well done; King gives them so much back story and development as the years pass in the novel that they feel so real, they could just walk into the reader’s life. It’s amazing how much detail was put into every aspect of this novel, from locations, to characters, to what characters were doing, it was all so calculated, yet thrilling to read.
