it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, horror

** spoiler alert ** The clown. The spider. The murders. The spousal abuse. The underage sewer sex. The suicide.

But: this is the sweetest book, the book most full of love, that Stephen King has ever written. This book made me want a different childhood for myself. This book makes me happy and sad at the same time, and it is also flat out awesome.

And this-

"But it's nice to think so for awhile in the morning's clean silence, to think that childhood has its own sweet secrets and confirms mortality, and that mortality defines all courage and love. To think that what has looked forward must also look back, and that each life makes its own imitation of immortality: a wheel.

"Or so Bill Denbrough sometimes thinks on those early mornings after dreaming, when he almost remembers his childhood, and the friends with whom he shared it."

-this, as Jake Chambers would say, is the truth.
