Reading this for the first time in a cabin in the countryside, with nothing but dark outside the windows at night and no internet to flee to was a terrifying mistake. It's still a good book though! ( )

When I was 17 my English teacher decided that for the next two weeks we would spend the class reading a book of our choice. I already read books like they were going out of print, so this was a welcome change in my daily schedule. Grading on this reading would be based solely on page count, to be proven and tested by the teacher opening pages at random and asking what was going on after a sentence or two. The only caveat being that it couldn't have been made into a movie.

I initially was going to re-read "Flowers in the Attic" but one student pointed out that it had been made into a movie. I guess the teacher didn't trust us to actually read the book....However no one seemed to have a problem with "It" although it had been made into a mini-series (that I hadn't seen and still haven't seen).

So I grabbed my copy of "It" and proceeded to re-read it for a second time. We weren't limited to reading the books in the classroom, so I managed to plow through this 1000 page behemoth in about 5 days.

While other kids were turning in 200 and 300 page books after the whole two weeks was over, I had managed this book and three others. Needless to say, I got an A, and had my teacher wondering what kind of cheat I was doing to be able to easily and accurately tell him what was going on after only a sentence or two. It was like "Name that Tune" but with books... He actually considered the idea that he was randomly opening the book on exciting and memorable chapters that stood out and as such made for easy recollection. Although, it's been 20 years since I read "it", but was able to recall the book scenes from the previews of the movie coming out --That I WON'T be seeing Thank you very much...

Whatever.... I read "It". I read "It" three times, and plan on reading "It" again. However, I won't be listening to the Doors while reading "it" since the last time I did I managed to be listening to "Light My Fire" at the same time it was referenced in the book....Not quite the same as the phone ringing in IRL when it is ringing on tv...but close.

So this wasn't quite a review of the book but more of a little anecdote showing how it somehow made it into my personal Zeitgeist.

If you haven't read "It" because you are daunted by the page count, don't worry, if you like Steven King, this is required reading that won't leave you skimming the pages. "It" Is a classic that needs to be read at least once in your life if you like the genre.

Now for the side-effects!
Reading "It" will often cause mild to moderate side-effects including but not limited to....

Lost items never attempted to be recovered once they cross the barrier of sidewalk to sewage drain....Not even the fear of losing a wedding band will have you peering into those drains...Bonus for you if your spouse has also read "It" because they won't even question your lack of action.

Fear of old refrigerators with the latch doors....

Anxiety when walking into a library, that increases exponentially in correlation to the time of day and the age of the library.

New aversions to:
red balloons, slide projectors, clowns, wax-sealed paper boats, small-towns, asthma inhalers, clowns, bikes with playing cards in the spokes, walking at night, walking along rivers at night, clowns, cookie-baking little old ladies in big old houses, ex-ray machines that tell you your shoe size, clowns, turtles, sewers, full moons, native american sweat huts, and CLOWNS!

On the other hand...reading "It" gives you the same bragging rights over those who have only watched the movie....bonus points to knowing when to avert your eyes and miss out on those scenes that will forever haunt your friends and family that didn't see them coming....

Cheers! ( )

It has lots of scary, but also lots of heart. I love the little gang. What a journey this book was. ( )

Non mi faranno paura i tombini, nè gli scarichi del bagno. Non avrò paura che da essi ne esca un pagliaccio con denti da tigre che mi offre un palloncino e mi dice vieni a volare con noi, qui voliamo tutti.
Ma, nella mia vita di lettrice, mi mancheranno i personaggi di questo libro, il loro essere ragazzini, il loro diventare adulti senza memoria, perchè la memoria farebbe paura, tanta da impazzire.
Mi mancheranno le loro insicurezze, il loro essere come me, ognuno per una parte, descritta con tanta verità e acutezza, che a tratti ti trovi a pedalare a perdifiato con la Silver per le strade di Derry, cercando di sfuggire alla banda di bulli che ti insegue per farti le peggio cose. Oppure sei catapultata in una camera da letto con un marito che ti fa violenza psicologica e fisica, o ancora vivi il disagio di chi non riesce a parlare senza tartagliare, o del bambino obeso preso pesantemente di mira dai soliti aguzzini.
Questo romanzo fa vivere sensazioni, una pagina, una sensazione e quando lo finisci è come se avessi vissuto sette vite, quelle dei protagonisti di It. ( )

The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years - if it ever did end - began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made out of a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.
