Review:
Stephen King's idea for It came from a favorite childhood image: the entire cast of the Bugs Bunny Show coming on at the beginning. He thought of bringing on all the monsters, one last time: Dracula, Frankenstein's creature, the Werewolf, the Crawling Eye, Rodan, It Came from Outer Space. It is about a group of adults who were once troubled children in the late '50s--"The Losers." One of them is a best selling horror writer much like Stephen King (or his friend and collaborator Peter Straub).

Review:
I really enjoyed it. If I sum up Stephen King in one word, it would be EERIE. He keeps you capivated with mystery, suspense and unpredictability. Although he is a touch long winded for my taste (example: he will tell a story of what will happen (future), then the same story of what actually happens (present), and a third time of what has happened (past). Other than that, I was captivated by this story of how people try, through any means, to find ways around the pain instead of working right through it. As Stephen King said: "sometimes dead is better" meaning, it is best to just accept and let things be! .
