Stand by Me meet H.P. Lovecraft
am 24. August 1999
Though not a great piece of literature, It does make for a good summer read. However, 200-300 pages could have been left behind. The repititios character description quickly becomes boring. (Richie's jokes, and Bill's stuttering are crucial to the plot, but annoyed me after a few hundred pages.) The best part by far is the supernatural presence. Clearly inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, the stories last chapters are the best. Though not for everyone, the final showdown with It becomes a weird twist of reality.
