Read in January, 1989

I think I would have liked this book even more if EVERY SINGLE PERSON giving a book review in my high-school English class hadn't reviewed it already. Having a dozen high-schoolers breathlessly proclaim this book as "the scariest thing I've ever read!!!" meant that the book couldn't quite live up to the hype. "Tommyknockers" was better, "1408" was scarier, and most of the stories in "Skeleton Crew" just horrified me. But "It" was pretty good; classic King. And for some reason I've always been attracted to books that pause to go into the history of a character or place, which "It" does for about %75 of the book.
