Stephen King – It (1986)

I can’t explain it. 

Only the 3rd Stephen King book I’ve read, It was much like the other two. Far, far too lengthy. 

… narrative bagginess … circuitous, repetitious book … a thousand sprawling pages …

All three King books I’ve read would have been much improved by being half the length.

The unnecessary and weird sex thing would be first to go. What’s with that?

I vow never to read King again. And that’s a shame because he’s such a good story teller.

I did not see the 1990 television miniseries and hope never to watch the new hit film adaptation nor the inevitable sequel(s).  Scary movies are not my thing.
