Stephen King, “It”

One of my favorite books. Photo: Ulla Hennig

I bought this book in the 8os, and it belongs to those books I use to read twice or more. Some say that “It” is one of Stephen King’s weaker books, but it is among my favorites.

It describes how a band of schoolchildren fights against “it” in their town, “it” being the impersonation of everything evil. They have become friends because everyone of them is some kind of outcast (one of them is a big fat boy, the other one a jew, the third one stutters and so on) and this binds them together.

They are successful in their fight against “It”, but they haven’t killed it. Years later, when they have all grown up, they are called again to fight against “It”. Suddenly they remember their fight and the horrible moments that went with it. And they come, with the exception of one man who commits suicide because he neither can meet the challenge nor forsake his friends.

It is a book about friendship and about the power of children. I simply love it.
