Hi,

I've really been enjoying Stephen King novels recently, (such as Salem's Lot, Pet Semetary) and have been wanting to start 'It'. However, one thing that puts me off it is that I've heard about some crazy ass eleven year old gang sex scene in some sewers? Wtf is that about?!

So I'd just like to know, does it actually CONTRIBUTE to the story in anyway? Is it really disgustingly weird and explicit?

I'm just worried that it's going to be so odd and disturbing picturing kids that age doing it in a sewer that it will ruin the book

Also, is it really as scary as people say it is? I'm a huge fan of horror novels and enjoy all forms of being scared, so is it really worth a read?

Cheers!

It's creepy, but not actually scary.

Really ****ing weird.

I had an old friend that we called 'it', because we weren't sure if they had a penis or vagina.

On topic-I can't help, sorry.

It (the scene you're referring to) contributes a lot to the story, trust me.

**Spoiler**

They are chasing the creature in the sewers to kill it and it starts to throw these scary illusions and hallucinations at them to scare them and make them run away because its already been weakened. So the girl lets the boys take turns having sex with her to calm them. It may sound kinda stupid or grotesque the way I described it, but its actually a really well written scene and really just shows these kids uniting and showing their love and coming together to destroy "it".

**Spoiler end**

Any way, read the book and enjoy it..its one of the best fuckin stories I have ever read. After you've read it you'll feel like you were actually a part of everything that happened.

I love that book.

when i first read it, it did seem a bit strange but in his weird way i think it just symbolised them finishing the job and making the oath to get back together if it returned.

it is a bit west though

I agree. "It" is my favorite SK book, and that I barely even remember that scene, so it probably wasn't so bad.

It was the only task I would undertake...

I look forward to reading it then, thanks guys . I take it that the whole weirdo sex scene is not a very big thing in the book at all then? That's all I feard; that it would keep coming up and being mentioned by a bunch of kids, that would be.... odd.

Also, I'm just starting Salem's Lot, what did you think of that? Scary/Cheesy? I'm enjoying it so far

It's pretty good. I've read every Stephen King book apart from his crappy new ones, so I forget what goes with what sometimes. But I do remember Salem's Lot, and it's pretty good.

^ Salem's Lot is good, but wasn't as scary to me as people said it would be. I thought The Shining and Pet Semetary were the scariest, while It and The Stand were the absolute best.

Good luck with "It". Amazing book, I love how it's just a book but it still made me afraid of turning the lights off at night. I haven't read Salem's Lot yet, but I keep trying to...
#15
I'm setting off to buy It and Pet Semetary tommorow, can't wait to read them .

Actually, on his new books, I read Cell recently - I actually loved it a lot! So I'd recommend it to you It is a little more straight forward with less waffling than his other books, but I enjoyed it a lot.

IT is not only the greatest Stephen King novel but one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of reading. True story.

I read it a couple years ago. Was definitely a really good book. Not as psychological as a lot of his others, more just straight to the point thriller/action/horror but was definitely a great read. I like the beginning when the pulse first hits and the entire city starts acting crazy

I just got done with his newest "Duma Key" about a month ago. That was really good.

Crappy new ones? I've read a hell of a lot of King, and Duma Key was one of my favorites. If you haven't read that one, I highly suggest you pick it up.

Let me reccommend you someone that makes better books and better movies based on their books.


Meet Clive Barker!

Stephen King is overrated and majority of his movies are whack. Clive's movies are better all around. Watch Midnight Meat Train, Nightbreed, and the Hellraiser series and tell me that Stephen King movies are good. Clive's movies makes Stephen King's movies look like softcore amine porn.

EDIT: I didn't read too clear there son! Look up some Clive books Books of Blood, Cabal, and Hellbound Heart. They are get books (movies are great also)

Are you seriously basing how good authors are based on the film adaptations of their work?

He's not asking about movies...

Part of what makes "It" such a strange and disturbingly good book is that it contains stuff like that.

But seriously, I read it and thought everything was pretty tame. I say read it.
Balls.

Ever since "It," I have been terrified of boats made out of newspaper.

I probably should. My dad likes to read Stephen King all the time, and he's really picky when it comes to movies, books, w/e, so there must be something about King that's really good.

Yeah those movies aren't directed by Stephen King, I don't see many of his books translating well due to how weird they are.
