Review: It by Stephen King (4-stars)

Wow, what a book! There’s a lot to condense down into a brief review, but more than anything else, the characters made this book. The story was an interesting one, but the characters are what brought it to life. The book was not at all what I expected it to be: a book about an evil clown that goes around killing people. I was surprised by it at every turn, and the fact that it took me a month to read is a testament to how much I enjoyed it. I was so busy with other stuff that I would have ordinarily given up on it, but I stuck with it to the end and it was well worth the trip.
