message 5: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) i just finished it a couple of weeks ago actually. And other than being awesome (because King just turns every book into gold) it reinforces SOO MUCH my fear of clowns... I'll wait to have more people who red the book here so we can discuss it, I don't want to spoil anything :P enjoy!

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments well then you must know that the book is too long.

Holly (goldikova) So......any thoughts on the beginning of the book? How are the first few chapters going for everybody?


message 13: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments just fine but the most terrifyng chapter is after the festival.

message 15: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments what? three days? how?


message 16: by Terri (new)

Terri (terrilovescrows) | 67 comments I was off work and did nothing but sleep, read and eat. LOL


message 17: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments but that's impossible for me. maybe because I am new to reading.


message 18: by Terri (new)

Terri (terrilovescrows) | 67 comments Sometimes it is the absolute best way to be


message 19: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments I prefer slow reading just for some reason

No please! dont let it scare u ( lol, it is scary) but i mean dont let the size scare you, it's such a great book and it would be a pity to miss the chance to live it just because it's big :D


message 22: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments yeah I agree.


message 23: by Holly (new)

Holly (goldikova) Is anyone else annoyed by the constant baby boomer pop culture references? One of my problems with SK is that he doesn't seem to realize that there are a lot of readers in this world who came along after the baby boom was over and all those references mean little or nothing to us.

When does that start? I'm only about 200 pages into the book, and I haven't noticed anything, yet. But, I grew up living with various people who belong to the "baby boomer" generation, so that's what most of my pop culture knowledge covers, until the early 2000s when I kind of started picking up things on my own, so maybe that's why I haven't noticed it.


message 25: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) What do you guys think about the testimony... when he sees the clown under the boardwalk....

I couldn't sleep that night after reading that


message 26: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments actually I haven't gone that far yet. which chapter is it?


message 27: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) Oh good question lol! Not too far in the book, maybe thenth at most


message 28: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments oh. okay but I am not that far yet. only completed 92 pages so far. thinking I should skip it and read it while I have the time .


message 29: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) Skip pages you mean? Or skip the book?

Either way you should devour each page, the story is just awesome as it unfolds.

As for skipping the book to get to it later, personally I can't do that. If I pick up a book, I have to read it to the last page. it's like if I couldn't break the bond with the story or characters.


message 30: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments yeah it is same with me. but I am new to books and this books seems too long for now. but I know it is way too awesome I have read king's "misery"(which I didn't life,e that much) but the thoughts he created in the character's mind and how he described the past mixed with the present. I was so happy that my cousin already have some Stephen king's book. otherwise I would have to buy them myself (which I couldn't).


message 31: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) Well go through you cousin's collection and see if he has ''Needful things'' from King :) it's my all-time favorite.

But back to the topic. So who's where now?

I', on the part where Mike Hanlon first meets the Losers' Club...when he's trying to get away from Henry Bowers and his group....and he stumbles upon the Losers' Club...I'm loving the book so far:)


message 33: by Cath (new)

Cath (cathastrophic) All the bullying that happens in the book when they were young... kinda made me sad. I despise bullying and I find it always kinda hard to read about kids being bullied


message 34: by A, Crazy. (new)

A H | 7672 comments Mod
Yeah exactly....that's really sad...I hate bullying too and reading it in books is difficult...


message 35: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments actually he have needful things in his collection because he mostly have horror books and king is his fav author but did anyone liked "misery"? I didn't.

I didn't like it either. What other horror genre books are available for you to borrow? You might want to try another author.

Completed the book! It was SO good!!! The first horror book I enjoyed :)


message 38: by Arbaaz (new)

Arbaaz Khan (arbaazkhan1999) | 588 comments wow. great for you then

But for the characters in the story they are relevant. And those who do get them enjoy it (or I do anyway)

I get that. But at the same time, there have always been kids who bullied other kids, so it is realistic


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

This one is a commitment book for sure! I read it about three years go, and liked it. I STILL can't get the Ritual of Chud out of my head!
