IT by Stephen King

Seeing as how a remake of IT is coming out later this year, I decided to read IT again. My hardback edition was printed in 1986, and as far as I can remember, I haven't read it since then, so I was amazed at just how much of the story was still stashed away in the recesses of my memory.
   There's a good reason for this: it's an amazing book. It's really long, really horrible, funny at times, with characters that leap off the page and a complex plot that doesn't once go off the lines. I might not have forgotten the story, but I had forgotten what a very good book this is.
   In my opinion, though I doubt SK will care very much, he only goes wrong - very slightly - twice, and perhaps misses a trick at the end. Three minor glips that others might not even consider glips, in a book three inches thick.
   As you can imagine, I heartily recommend IT, unless you have a weak stomach or are liable to nightmares.
